Welcome to Queen Mary Angels! We are a competitive cheerleading club made up of students from both Barts and Queen Mary. Cheerleading at University is a great way to meet people and get fit, as well as discovering your passion for a new sport. There is something for everyone, as cheerleading involves tumbling (gymnastics), dancing, jumps, and stunting (lifting and throwing people above your head!). It is an exciting, athletic, and fast reflex sport. Cheerleading teams compete directly against each other, (not cheering for other sports teams!). Check out our showreel for what we do!
COVID UPDATE: Our SU has made an announcement that sports training can not commence until the 5th of October 2020, therefore please look out for updates on our Instagram (@qmangels).
Our taster sessions are aimed at being as inclusive as possible. We will introduce you to the basics of cheerleading and have you actively performing some skills to get a feel for the sport.
You will need to wear comfortable and athletic clothes to our taster sessions.
We don’t hold tryouts: all committed athletes, regardless of skill level, are allowed to compete on one or more of our teams.
COVID UPDATE: TBC (We are to possibly compete in Legacy Regionals and Nationals and International Cheerleading Coalition University Nationals; but all depends on wether these competitions will continue as planned and our ability to train and prepare.)
In previous years we have competed at Future Cheer University Nationals, Legacy Regionals and Nationals, British Cheerleading Association Nationals and University Nationals, International Cheerleading Coalition University Nationals.
In the past couple of years our Elite Team has competed in the European Championships.
COVID UPDATE: TBC
QMSU also offers Get Active Cheerleading sessions for just £2.50 per session and open to all abilities. It's a fun, social, turn up and play programme, visit the Get Active site for more information.
