cheerleading

for secondary schools

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.
