Cheerleading

Cheerleading at Loughborough caters for all abilities, so if you're interested in taking up cheerleading get in touch.

Athletic Union Club

Our Cheerleading club trains three times a week to be the best possible squad we can be. We work on stunts, tosses, dance, tumbles, flexibility and jumps – all of these aspects are required to score highly at competitions.

We currently have two competitive teams which are at Level 3 and Level 2, and our All Girl Level 3 team competes against All-Star teams and University teams.

Our different teams give the opportunity for all students of all abilities to be a part of the club, as we provide them with skills that will make them better all-around athletes as well as better cheerleaders.

We also get involved in performing for crowds at matches, such as the matches on 'D-Day' and for other Loughborough Athletic Union clubs. We like to think that our club challenges the stereotypical view of cheerleading with our intense training and commitment.

Full commitment from our members is essential as we aim to be the best at competitive cheerleading and we usually compete in two national competitions per year. We have been National Champions in All-Girl Level 4 Cheer multiple times and are currently one of the best University squads in the country.
