COVID-19 & Return to Cheerleading – FAQs

As social distancing and restrictions are gradually lifted many coaches and Cheerleading clubs will begin to welcome athletes back for sessions. However, due to social distancing restrictions sessions may not necessarily continue as before.

Limitations on large gatherings of people from separate households and no contact restrictions mean that some of the areas of Cheer sessions may be affected such as Group/Team Size, Stunting and Inter Club Participation.

The safety of staff and participants must be at the forefront of our efforts in returning to group/team activity.

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.

We are currently at level 2 awaiting further government guidance/updates.

Current government guidance:

Guidance for the public on the phased return of outdoor sport and recreation in England
