CFHTT 6th Birthday 🙌🎂🎉💜🎊🎉🎂💜🎊🎉

Hey Guys,
Six years ago I never thought Cheer From Head To Toe would be what it is today. I started this project because I didn’t feel UK cheer community was being represented online accurately. If you typed in UK cheer nothing came up and I didn’t feel that was right.
Over the years CFHTT has developed from my own personal project to a team of people building the CFHTT brand. I am so grateful for each and every member for all you do behind the scenes from crazy hours of the morning discussing ideas to travelling halfway across the country to watch talented teams and so much more!! I feel truly blessed to be able to share my passion with such wonderful people. A special thank you to my righthand woman Mary for all your hard work and being such amazing friend. To Paul and Nicole for your endless proof reading for me it means the world to that you read my reviews without question even when they are 2000+ words long💜💜 and to many others who support me. I’m deeply touched by your kindness.
Six years later the cheer community is booming, we couldn’t be prouder and are even more excited for the future. On our journey we have met so many amazing people and we are so thankful for their support. Today is about celebrating all that we have achieved and we have some lovely videos from a few of our dear friends that we are going to share with you all.
All my love

Caroline xxx
Ps let’s make another 6 amazing years

CFHTT interview with Para Cheer athlete and founding trustee of ParaCheer International Rick Rodgers

Rick_Rodgers.jpg

 

Name: Rick Rodgers

Which Team: Team England ParaCheer

Role: Base. I also advise the coaching staff on adaptations for the athletes who need it.

Disability: Complex Regional Pain Syndrome; I use a wheelchair to mobilise as it’s agonisingly painful for me to bare weight through my legs. I also have pain in my arms and upper spine which makes it much more fatiguing to Cheer. All my stunts have to work around my wheelchair, and the fact that my sitting position means I’m further from my base partner than would be best. I have a base support who helps stabilise the stunt over me correctly so it doesn’t put excess pressure on my spine or shoulders, and my base support also calls the stunts for my stunt group, as my pain and fatigue can lead to distraction and forgetfulness.

Age: 33

Career/Job: I’m a founding trustee of ParaCheer International and volunteer my time to the charity a lot. Otherwise I’m currently not working due to some mental health difficulties I’ve been dealing with over the last couple of years.

Share something that makes you happy: Pancakes

Share something most people don’t know about you: I used to drive rickshaws around Croydon for a living.

How many years’ cheer/dance experience do you have? Over 11 years.

Which cheer/dance teams are you part of or have you been part of in the past? I was originally part of the London City Stars, then after the accident that left me disabled I performed as Wheelchair Partner Stunt, before founding ParaCheer International and the ParaCheer divisions.

You were on Team England ParaCheer last year, what made you want to return for a second year? I still haven’t been on a competitive team since my accident and really wanted to succeed at that. I’m not ready to retire as an athlete since I missed so many years during my disability transition; ParaCheer is the only place I’m able to still fulfil that goal.

What’s your favourite part of being on Team England ParaCheer/Pom? Seeing the dream having spread to all the athletes around me and watching them all support each other regardless of their diverse backgrounds and needs.

Are there any stunt/technique adaptations you make which you find especially interesting? 17426171_1590301347665348_6407741366933569175_nThis year it’s been great working with Wendy (the other wheelchair user on the team) and getting to share everything I’ve learnt as a wheelchair user myself. The addition this year of our high vis velcro strips between the panels has been fun too.

 

 

What have you learnt while being a part of this team? Whatever challenges come our way there is a solution if you can work together and rely on each other.

What are you most excited to experience at Worlds 2017? I’m really excited to see the other National ParaCheer teams we’re competing against and how they’re interpreting the rules and choreographing their routines.

Anything else you want to share?17629595_1590063934355756_4110602637258594486_n The uniforms we have this year from Varsity Europe are spectacular, and that we have worked together with Team England Co-ed and All Girl to create one uniform across the whole Team England Cheer programme is really exciting.
