Cheerleading FAQ

What is competitive cheerleading?

Competitive cheerleading is a sport comprised of different levels of cheer teams based on age and ability which compete against each other. Competitive cheer involves skills which require the strength of football, the grace of dance, and the agility of gymnastics. The cheerleaders perform a 2:30 routine comprised of cheer, tumbling, jumps, stunts, pyramids, basket tosses and dance. The United States All Star Federation (USASF) is the governing body of competitive cheer and sets the rules and regulations that teams and gyms must adhere to.

How many competitions do you attend?

Our squads attend approximately 3-5 competitions per year.

How far do you travel to competitions?

The majority of our competitions take place in the North-West of England, primarily Bolton Arena, Blackpool Winter Gardens and Liverpool Echo Arena. We may travel further afield to other competitions in the coming years

Do I need to have done gymnastics or another sport to be able to do cheerleading?

No, not at all. It will obviously help if you have, but most of our athletes have come into the sport with no prior sporting achievements.

Do I have to attend both of the training sessions?

Yes you do. Cheer has so many different elements, the only way to train them all properly is to split it over two training nights.
