Junior Lancer Cross Country

June - October

 

Manitowoc Lutheran will be sponsoring a Jr. Lancer Cross Country program this summer and next fall. This program is open to boys and girls that will be in grades 5-8 next fall. Mr. Joel Putz will be the coach, in conjunction with the MLHS coaching staff. He teaches 2nd grade at Immanuel and is an avid runner himself. There will be a $30 fee which will cover a team jersey, (yours to keep after the season) summer training sessions, fall practices, and about 5 or 6 meets. It is theoretically possible to do both Jr. Lancer Cross Country and Football, but there will be conflicts between practices and games. For more information please contact Tom Dewane.

Junior Lancer Football

The Jr. Lancer Football team is comprised of grades 4-6, and practices are Tuesdays and Thursdays with Friday games that take place before Lancer home football games.

If your child is participating in a Junior Lancer Sport, please review the Concussion form for Athletes, Concussion form for Parents, and sign the Junior Lancer Agreement & Release of Liability.  When you register for a sport, you will have to verify that you have read and signed all three documents.

Junior Lancer Wrestling

Jr. Lancer Wrestling instruction is geared to the age of the students. Beginning wrestlers are presented with the foundation skills required. New skills are introduced each week of the Club. The emphasis is placed on step-by-step mastery of each move and understanding the principles involved, in order to make the wrestler successful in competition.

Junior Lancer Band

Jr. Lancer Band provides individual lessons, along with performance opportunities, to students in grades 5-8 of our Federation grade schools and congregations.

 

The Junior Lancer Band Program is comprised of two groups:

  •     Beginner Band
