Cheerleading at University is a great way to meet people and get fit. There is definitely something for everyone whether it is full cheer, group stunt, partner stunt, dance, or tumbling (gymnastics). Cheerleading involves tumbling, dancing and stunting (lifting and throwing people above your head!) and is an exciting, athletic and fast reflex sport. At cheer we compete against other teams (not cheering for other sports teams). check out our showreel
for what we do!
We accept anyone who is willing to commit to the team, work hard, and have fun, but we are also looking for guys and girls with any previous experience of cheerleading, gymnastics or dance. Our qualified coaches will teach you everything from scratch. We have both competitive and non-competitive training sessions each week.
QMA is one of the most successful university cheerleading teams in the country, and the only university cheer team in the UK to have competed on the world stage in Florida at the highest level. We have continued to build on our success year on year, and currently have four teams competing regularly in the UK, ready to welcome new members!
Become a member of our squad to work hard and play hard by joining all the other sports clubs every week for social sessions. Come and be part of an ambitious family with great spirit, helping us to continue our success!
