Spring Championships Review

We enjoyed another thrilling and high energy competition last weekend at the UKCA Spring National Championship. There were many different levels of Cheerleaders competing throughout the weekend, such as those skilled in Group Stunt, Pom Dance and Street Cheer. The outstanding performances from all our members was extraordinary – we are proud of you! Thank you to everyone who came along and joined the, ‘Sport of Smiles’. The interaction we received across social media was phenomenal, thank you to everyone who shared and tweeted us, we are still seeing truly spectacular fan photos coming in!

There were also many squads who enjoyed their first competition at the weekend, one of which being the University of Manchester Cheerleaders who went home with a 2nd place award in the Level 1 Stunt category. It’s incredible to see teams such as the University of Manchester Cheerleaders win such high level awards, when they only began Cheerleading last semester. As they shared across social media it’s, “Proof hard work pays off and its never too late to try something new! #thisgirlcan” We agree! You can find our more about the University of Manchester Cheerleaders here.

We would like to give a special thank you to all of our volunteers who worked across the weekend with us, ensuring the Spring Competition flowed smoothly. Whether you worked across the event, at the uniform check station or back stage at the warm up area, you all contributed to a successful UKCA Competition so thank you! It’s also important to acknowledge the volunteers from Breakthrough UK who were remarkable across the weekend. We are proud of you, say we are proud of you! Good job!

Here is a peak at the fun we shared across Twitter using the hashtags #UKCA and #ThisGirlCan from Cheerleaders, spectators, our very own UKCA Ambassador Lauren Quigley and even the comperes!

Great job guys!

Even our UKCA Ambassador Lauren Quigley joined us at the competition to Cheer everyone on! We shared images of her at the competition throughout the weekend on Twitter, @UKCheerleading “Our Ambassador is here today! Give it up for @LaurenAQuigley! #ThisGirlCan #UKCA #sportingpromise #youthsporttrust”

This small group of Cheerleaders on this course is a great way for you to learn. When our classes are small it means that you can be trained better, and this is also really fun for those involved as everyone gets to know each other better! And, as you can see from the pictures throughout this post everyone had lots of fun!

So if you want to participate in a course with us, whether Street Cheer or any other area of Cheerleading, then get in contact with us here for more information on our Upcoming Courses. Be sure to click on each section of our courses on the website for more information!

2014-09-27 13.56.02-2

Our courses cover mixed practical theory and we also teach our mission statement which is:

“To provide a channel for health and social education through Cheerleading to all young people regardless of sex, class, creed, culture, race or physical limitations.”

So no matter who you are, or what you are interested in The UKCA is here waiting for you to get involved!

See you at the Winter Championships!

South Staffordshire Street Cheer

The Matalan Sporting Communities Programme has led to a brand new Street Cheer Club being created at Wolgarston High School in South Staffordshire.

Street Cheer

The event features in the Sport Across Staffordshire’s newsletter and has been an instant hit with its members.

The club runs every Wednesday from the school from 3.45pm-5.45pm. For more details, take a look at the newsletter.

Street Cheer on Pure FM

‘Street Cheer’ was the featured company all week on ‘Clare Lancaster’s Long Lunch.’ Each day we heard from Hannah and Ruth Goulding about ‘Street Cheer’ and Clare Lancaster played songs to perk up the girls day on Pure 107.8fm.
