Stunt Workshops
Well 2010 has certainly started with a bang for UKCA, first the launch or our new website which is developing everyday and then the fabulous success of our Stunt Workshops at the Manchester Velodrome.

We hosted Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced level workshops to give our coaches and teams the opportunity to develop and progress their stunts skills. They proved very popular, selling out in record time and were extremely well received by all those lucky enough to attended.

Highlights for us were helping two teams achieve back tuck basket tosses for the first time, introducing 360 degree rotational mounts to our advanced teams, introducing twisting dismounts to intermediate teams and seeing everyone achieve a new skill whilst taking part in the workshop.

Coaches and teams benefited from the relaxed and positive environment the workshops were delivered in and the amount of one to one help they were able to access from the UKCA trained tutor team. They built confidence and team spirit and all will be returning to their teams with new skills to teach and develop. We can’t wait to see you all at one of our competitions this year showcasing your new skills.

Due to popular demand we are now running the workshops again on 3rd April, so for anyone who missed out, now is the time to get yourself and your team booked on. We hope to see you there!

Tutor Open Day
Another exciting date in our diary was the Tutor Open Day. The UKCA Education Team had been looking forward to this day for sometime now. The day was open to all UKCA members who had an interest in becoming trained as a tutor for UKCA, it was an opportunity to meet the existing team and gain an insight into the skills required for a UKCA tutor.

We had a fun filled day, learned plenty and really got to know one another, all key parts of being part of the UKCA Team. Highlights included some very entertaining individual presentations from the candidates and with the personality testing, us all learning a little more about ourselves.

I am pleased to say that all the candidates showed potential to become part of the tutoring team. They will now decide if they want to follow the tutoring programme and begin observing and part delivering on our courses.

We will look to hold another tutoring open day in the next few months, so for any of you who are interested, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with UKCA. It’s a commitment free day and by attending doesn’t mean you have to take tutoring any further.

Good luck to all our new tutors who are coming on board with the programme!

Coaching Courses in 2010
We are pleased to say that after the snowy start to 2010 which saw a number of courses postponed, the tutoring team are back into full swing travelling the country to deliver courses of all levels in both Cheerleading and Street Cheer.

Every course is unique and it’s fantastic to meet so many people who are excited and keen to become involved in Cheerleading, its also very rewarding to see so many of you coming back for further training and development.

Some of the courses that really stick out for me are
Monday 25th Jan in Lancaster – this was the first of many courses that we are delivering for the British College Sport network. It was fantastic to see so many students enthused by Cheerleading and looking to develop it at College level. There were some big personalities on the course and really made it a fun and enjoyable day for us all – Thanks Guys

Tues 2nd Feb Maidenhead – What a day! This was a massive course with 28 participants, 4 of which were guys all very eager to spread the word of Cheerleading. You provided us with some extremely entertaining moves and proved that its not just females who find Cheerleading a fun and interactive sport. Cheer is really growing in the South, and we are pleased to be assisting with the growth and development there. Good luck guys and we’ll hopefully see you on the 9th June for your Cheer Festival
