“We all had such an amazing day”



Wow! What a weekend! We’re still beaming after another absolutely fantastic competition!

First of all we’d like to say a huge thank you and well done to everybody who took part in the UKCA National Schools’ Championships 2017 including our wonderful volunteers, coaches and of course the spectators who descended on the National Cycling Centre on mass to create a superb atmosphere for our final comp until the Winter.

As always at UKCA competitions we were treated to some of the highest level Cheerleading in the country with performances from Cheerleading, Pom Dance, Disability Pom Dane, Street Cheer and Freestyle categories as well as a special Disability Group Stunt performance and the crowd favourite, Mascot Dance Off! Your ability, commitment and Cheer spirit makes us incredibly proud to be hosts of such an amazing, competitive event.

All of the results from the two day event can be found here:
