We held our first championships of 2022 at the start of April. Cheer and dance teams from across the UK competed at Belle Vue Sports Village, showcasing some of the top talent in the country.
The weekend was an absolute blast and, yet again, we are overjoyed with the talent, competition, companionship, and joy displayed. A huge standing ovation for all the competitors, coaches, clubs, mascots, and spectators for making the championship the best it could possibly be.
The competition, split over two days, saw Cheer athletes competing in Group Stunts, Cheerleading, Cheer Dance, Urban Cheer, and Pom Dance across all levels, plus, the Mascot Showdown.
The Burnley Clarets opened the Championships on Saturday with a stellar performance. They absolutely brought it 🙌, leading to an incredible day full of Cheerleading and Group Stunts. A huge congratulations to every team who placed on Saturday!! Each and every team showed up and competed their hearts out – you should all be so proud of yourselves!!
Dance Nation brought their A-Game to open the floor on Sunday morning with their fun Cheer Dance performance. The stage was set for the rest of the Championship day with Cheer Dance, Urban Cheer, and Pom Dance competitions. Another spectacular day with talented teams blowing us all away. Biggest congratulations to all the teams who placed on Sunday – we hope you’re as proud of yourselves as we are of you!
