COVID-19 & Return to Cheerleading – FAQs

As restrictions continue to change throughout the country, the safety of staff and participants must be at the forefront of our efforts in group/team activity. It is important that local guidance is adhered to and there remains absolutely no contact between coaches and athletes or athletes and athletes.

The UK Cheerleading Association recommends all UK Cheerleading Clubs and Coaches follow the suggested practices outlined in UKCA’s Return to Cheer document which has been developed inline with the the UK Government’s Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport’s (DCMS) and Sport England’s most current guidance.

Moving into Step Four of the Return to Cheer Roadmap 

On Monday 19th July, England moves into Step Four, which sees most legal restrictions lifted by the government.

Some key protections will remain in place locally to help keep ourselves and others safe and the government and Sport England are currently working together to provide answers to questions about what this means across sport and physical activity. Once this information becomes available, we will share this with you and in the meantime, let’s safely return to ‘The Sport of Smiles’. 

Please refer to the links at the bottom of the page for other areas of the UK (Northern Ireland, Wales, Scotland) as currently guidelines are not the same for all countries.

Take care and stay safe.
