Last weekend, Wright Robinson College hosted our Level 1 Cheerleading Leadership Award course for UKCA coaches. The course teaches arm motions, jump technique, cheers, chants and choreography. As well as this it gives the skills to lesson plan and covers skills – including an introduction to cheerleading – necessary to coach at a basic level in schools and community clubs/groups.
The course is aimed at under 18-year-olds who want to gain some coaching/teaching experience the focus of this course is communication, motivation and safety. Success on the course awards participants with a Leadership Award that allows them to then go on and participate in our Level 2 Basic Skills Qualification.
Check out these pictures and tweets from the course:
