This past weekend, the UKCA Winter Championships took place after a year off due to the global pandemic. We held the event at Belle Vue Sports Village over one day and showcased some of the best cheerleading talents from across the country.
What can we say? This was an absolutely amazing day and every competitor turned it UP for their club and themselves. We are so proud and incredibly blown away at the display of talent. Thank you to all the competitors, coaches, and clubs for making this event the best closer to the year.
This competition saw Cheer athletes competing in Cheerleading, Group Stunts, Cheer Dance, Urban Cheer, Pom Dance, and, of course, the coveted Mascot Showdowns.
Buckley Cheerleading Club opened the day with their fantastic performance from the Dynamites. This set us up for a jaw-dropping morning of Cheer and Group Stunts with each team bringing their A-Game! Congratulations to all the teams placing in the first award’s ceremony of the day.
Spotlight Stars Loud leapt into action to start the afternoon competitions with their stunning Cheer Dance performance. The rest of the afternoon brought us incredible Cheer Dance, Urban Cheer, and Pom Dance competitions. Huge congrats to every team who placed in the final award’s ceremony!
