CLUBS IN SUSSEX
Cheerleading is a high energy, multi-disciplined competitive exciting sport, which combines a mixture of dance, gymnastics, and acrobatics. It is physically challenging, developing members coordination, stamina, strength, flexibility, and musicality, whilst also emphasising teamwork and most importantly trust: requiring to catch and support each other in the air! The team learns routines and trains in stunting, tumbling, jumps, motions and dance.
The competing level of a team is determined by the squad’s ability level at the time of entry into a cheerleading competition. Cheerleading clubs have competitive cheer squads that compete at a high level for regional competitions attending competitions at various events around the country and worldwide to compete against some of the best teams in the world. Cheerleading Clubs also support their local community performing at events. Recreational programmes are provided for children that are new to cheerleading or don't want to compete.
A Cheer Routine is not done with pom poms and combines motions and dance as well as stunting and gymnastics. The stunts are great to learn and achieving them creates a great sense of teamwork and achievement to the participants. Stunts are divided into levels in order to establish their difficulty. The levels range from level 1 being the easiest stunts to level 6, which are the most complex. If stunts are being taught at a session participants would very rarely go above level 2 stunts unless they are regular sessions and the coach feels that the participants are ready to do higher level stunts.
