OUR COMPETITION TEAMS ARE OPEN TO EVERYONE, WE BELIEVE THAT ALL ATHLETES SHOULD HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO JOIN A COMPETITIVE SPORT.
We have a range of competition teams suitable for all athletes, no experience is necessary for you to join a competition team, we just ask for commitment to your team (please see our attendance policy for competition athletes) and ensure that you are available for all competition dates that your team is required for.
Here is a list of teams that we hope to field for the 2020-2021 season.

POSTPONED UNTIL JANUARY 2021 DUE TO COVID RESTRICTIONS
Monthly Travel Team
Age and level decided after tryouts
ONE SUNDAY A MONTH FOR 3-4 HOURS
All teams train once a week and our monthly team trains once a month. We highly recommend that competition athletes also sign up for a tumbling class and attend a jump and stretch class when they can as this will really improve their performance and ability to progress through the levels.
TEAM PLACEMENT WEEK
All team placement athletes will be charged £5 for the week (no matter how many different tryouts you attend).
During our team placement week you can select which time slot you would like to attend from logging onto your member area of Coacha (if you are unsure of your log in please contact us and we will sort out your account for you) New athletes please sign up using the join us tab and when we confirm your account you will be able to log in to book. Our Group stunt try outs are invitational only and we will contact athletes after their team placement if we would like to invite them to group stunt try outs (if you only want to tryout for group stunt please email us with a video of you performing the hardest stunts you currently have). Monthly team tryouts need to be booked separately.
These dates are provisional depending on governments social distancing guidelines
Please use athletes ages as of 31st August 2020. You will need to fill in a short form at the start of your athletes tryout time slot.
Travel Team Tryouts
Travel Team tryouts take place on Sunday 27th September from 9-11am (TBC). We are not sure of the age or level yet so will have everyone interested attend at the same time so we can see which would work best for the athletes we have. You can book onto this tryout via Coacha in the same place as our team placement bookings. Please make sure you also book onto a regular team placement if you would like to do this as well.
Here is a list of competitions that we are looking to attend with teams this season, the dates and prices are subject to change. Please ensure you look at the different teams attending as not all teams do all competitions.
We haven't got a full quote through yet for the cost of each athlete on our travel team to fly and stay in Barcelona but expect the cost to be in the region of £350 - £400 all in but we are hoping to reduce this significantly with fundraising.
Please note that there are additional costs for competitions such as travel to competitions, accommodation if you would like it, spectator tickets and food for the day are all things to consider.
All Competition athletes are required to pay a yearly non-refundable fee of £70 which covers their season t-shirt, contribution to insurance, music and choreography. This is due before their first session.
Our prices show the cost for each teams monthly training fees, additional costs are also in the table for each team. We will as much as possible try to reuse bows from last season but some may need to purchase a new bow. We are looking to move to a program wide bow so that it does not need to be repurchased every season.
Additional cost may be cheerleading shoes (white trainers).
Crossover fees for athletes who compete on more than one team are an additional £10 per month per team on top of their first team.
At Home Work
All our competition athletes will have a subscription to the Cheer District app which is where our conditioning for athletes is set from them to do at home. This is a requirement for all competition athletes to improve performance and reduce the risk of injury. We will send out full details to any athletes who are not currently on the app after team placements.
