This weekend the National Cycling Centre in Manchester played host to UKCA’s penultimate competition of 2019, the UKCA National Schools’ Cheerleading Championships.
The annual showcase of School Cheerleading Squads took place across two days and lived up to all the expectation. Schools from around the UK competed against their fellow squads across various Key Stages and Cheer categories, testing themselves at a national level.
Over the weekend we saw teams compete in Cheerleading, Disability Cheerleading, Pom Dance and Urban Cheer categories from KS1 up to KS5 as well as 2 customary Mascot Showdowns. As we’ve come to expect at our championships the standard of performances was incredibly high as each squad gave it their all to show the judges and the crowd what they can do. In addition to the trophies on offer to our Cheer athletes for their routines, there was also the Gateley Plc Spirit Award & Insure4Sport Spirit Award up for grab for teams showing exceptional Cheer Spirit.
All of the results from the UKCA National Schools’ Cheerleading Championships 2019 are live on our website.
The Gateley Plc Spirit Award for Saturday went to OPJS Otters.
Sunday’s Insure4Sport Spirit Award went to Castell Alun.
We’d like to say a huge thank you to everybody who made it such a special weekend! We hope to see you all again in December for our Winter Championships!
