This week we are celebrating our QM Angels from Cheerleading! Get the low down on everything you need to know about this club below.
What days and times do you train? Where do you train?
Fridays 5-8.30 and Sundays 10-2 in QMotion sports hall
What makes your training sessions enjoyable?
Cheerleading is a multi-disciplinary sport, with routines involving stunting, tumbling and dancing. This means training is never dull: from being thrown in the air, to learning incredible tumbles, our athletes return to us year after year! As cheerleading is an 'up and coming' sport, we assume people who join us have no prior experience in the sport: this makes it possible for complete beginners to learn the sport from scratch and even become National Champions - a title we win most years! For athletes who have more experience in the sport, we also have an advanced team, to ensure they can build their skill level.
What was your club’s biggest success of the past year?
Last season was arguably the most successful for our club. We won 3 Bronze medals, 3 Silver ones, and 6 Gold ones. We also had the incredible privilege of representing England at the European Cheerleading Championships in Helsinki! And to end the season on a high, two of our alumni represented England in the World Championships, where they returned home with a GOLD medal!
So why should you get involved?
We pride ourselves on our ability to make everyone feel like part of a family. Outside training, we organise socials, movie nights and dinners to allow athletes to spend time together outside of the training environment.
And a final fun fact about this club?
Almost 50% of our elite team last year was male!
