Fitness, fun and focus
Cheerleading is a perfect way to engage girls and boys in PE and is one of the fastest growing sports in the UK.
Our cheerleading weekends are a popular way to promote fitness, exercise, and team spirit.
Our introductory course comprises a fun and energetic programme, focussing on participation and building a range of basic skills required to make a cheerleading routine.
Run by British Cheerleading Association (BCA) coaches, it’s an inspiring introduction for beginners including students who may be less than enthusiastic about more traditional PE activities.
For experienced teams and school clubs, our ‘Competition’ course is designed to strengthen team confidence and dedicate some quality time to pre-competition practice in a new environment. BCA coaches will work with you on existing routines, concentrating on improving performance levels and percentage capabilities.
So how does it work?
Stunts and Tumbles
Designed for girls and boys in years 7-11 (S1-S5), our cheerleading weekends are full of exciting, motivating programmes which include stunts, tumbles, dance, gymnastics, poms and cheers, delivered by professional BCA coaches. Beginners and experienced teams both develop trust and teambuilding skills through practice and through adventure activities.
Complementing the cheerleading sessions, adventure activities such as abseiling, zip wire, climbing and trapeze help reinforce team spirit and the sense of achievement.
Enjoy a full range of evening entertainment and activities, run by our team on centre.

For beginners, it’s a thorough and thoroughly enjoyable introduction to the sport. And for more experienced cheerleaders, it’s an opportunity to spend a whole weekend doing what they love.
It’s a chance to try out new moves, improve their repertoire and technique.
It’s a weekend of bonding which will help groups work together, communicate and support each other more effectively. They will enjoy their personal achievements and successes.
But more than this, it’s a weekend that will fill your cheerleaders with the enthusiasm and inner belief to carry them through any challenges that may lie ahead.
