Cheer Extreme, Co-Ed Elite Visit

Comments Off on Cheer Extreme, Co-Ed Elite Visit

As part of the Jamfest competition a cheerleading squad from America, Cheer Extreme’s Coed Elite from North Carolina, came over to perform. We extended an invitation out to them to come and train in our gym prior to the competition, which they did on Sunday morning. A number of our trampolinists and gymnasts came to watch and were wowed by the skills they were throwing on our floor. The Cheer Extreme coaches were also kind enough to share their expertise with our cheerleaders and helped with their final preparations before the competition.It was a fantastic opportunity to see what our girls could aspire to one day and for them to be encouraged by “real American cheerleaders”.

JamFest Competition

Our senior level 2 squad had their first ever competition this weekend at the Echo Arena in Liverpool and performed extremely well. They went out and hit a near flawless routine; all their stunts, that had been problematic in training, hit and, apart from a small fall and timing issue in the pyramid, the whole routine was performed to an amazing standard. They were entered into the most difficult and largest of divisions unfortunately and came out with a score of 79.23 (out of 100). They were awarded 11th place out of 16 with only 6.2 points between them and 3rd place, that is how stiff the competition was!

Today the Olympic Torch came to Birkenhead. As part of that celebration Wirral council organised a series of events in Birkenhead Park. Squads from gymnastics, trampolining and cheerleading all performed a series of displays – a massive well done to everyone and a big thank you to the weather for being so glorious. As an additional bonus after performing the displays we all ran over to the Europa centre to watch our very own Cathy Page and Rebecca Blacklock carry the Olympic torch!
