UKCA Spring Championships 2018 – What A Weekend!


This weekend saw the UKCA Spring Championships 2018 rock Belle Vue Sports Village in Manchester with a festival of Cheer! Cheerleaders from far and wide made the trip to a new UKCA venue in scorching weather for another weekend of competitive Cheerleading.

The competition got off to a blistering start with the athletes galvanised by the electric atmosphere created by the spectators and fellow Cheerleaders in the stands! Day 1 saw a mixture of Cheerleading, Group Stunt and Partner Stunt performances and also included 2 awards ceremonies and the first of the weekend’s Mascot Showdowns. Our wonderful compères, Jason and Michelle, kept the energy high and made sure everyone was kept up-to-date with the goings on at the Royal Wedding!

The Gateley Spirit Award for Day 1 went to Fusion

After a dazzling second day where we were treated to Pom Dance, Cheer Dance and Urban Cheer routines the Insure4Sport Spirit Award was awarded to Eclipse!
