A Busy, Inspiring Week

As always there is plenty to talk about at the UKCA. As we continue preparations for the upcoming UKCA Spring Championships in May, we have seen coaching courses and even an inspirational talk from Official UKCA Ambassador Vicky Howarth at a Manchester Community Group.

Earlier this week a group of UKCA Cheerleaders took part in a leadership course in Chorley as part of their development in the sport and we managed to get some pictures of them in action!



We hope you all had a great time and learnt plenty!

Joining a UKCA course helps Cheerleaders to improve and develop skills in an encouraging environment that helps the next generation of Cheerleaders feel confident and inspired by the sport.

UKCA Ambassador Vicky Howarth, is someone whose sporting journey has been an inspiration to everyone at the association and recently she shared her story as she gave a very inspiring speech to a community group in Wythenshaw, Manchester. She spoke about how she has overcome her extremely rare condition that causes the degeneration of sight which has led to her becoming a National Champion at the Riding for the Disabled Association National Competition 2015 as well as achieving amazing results in her equestrian career winning over 300 1st place rosettes in National equestrian competitions. In addition to her horse riding achievements Vicky has become a dedicated member of the Cheerleading association and coaches a number of teams in Manchester. UKCA have supported Vicky throughout her journey as a Cheerleader and sportswoman, her commitment at competitions and events is amazing and she also gives others a helping hand.


After the talk Vicky received this letter thanking her for inspiring talk and wishing her luck for the future. UKCA are extremely proud and privileged to work with Vicky. We are proud of you, say we are proud of you!
