Everything you need to know about University Cheerleading

 

 

 

Hey Community,

With a new competitive cheer season fast approaching and today being the day a lot of student receive their A-level result. We thought it’d be fun to talk about University cheer and difference between Uni Cheer and Allstar Cheer with the help of  Nottingham Trent Tigers

At Nottingham Trent University they Cheerleading team is called Trent  Tigers hey have 4 different teams, which are a performance squad, a varsity squad and a level 2 and level 3 competition squad.

All squads participate at different events which engage different audiences and this enables them to reach a bigger a group of people and show them what cheerleading is all about.

Performance Squad:

 

Performance squad is a team which people can join if they are starting out in cheer for the first time and  you want to learn from the ground up and they train once a week.

Varsity Squad:

18382258_1475014255905359_2941499294303125504_n Varsity squad is a team which performs at all of the varsity sport performances and does not have a specific level. In varsity you can do whatever stunts you like, as it is all about impressing the audience and getting them excited! Varsity is a mixture of stunting and dancing which can be in a routine from 3-4 minutes long, which is obviously a lot longer than a standard all star cheer routine. Due to there being no specific level it can make it quite difficult at times to create a stunt sequence due to not having to follow a score sheet like in normal cheer. Varsity is lots of fun and whilst also training twice a week, they never know when a performance could be round the corner.

Competition Squads:

Their competition teams are both level 2 and 3, and they definitely do not train any differently to how all star teams train. Most of the people who are on level 2 or 3 have competed in all star divisions before and for those that haven’t, they have seriously worked up their stamina and skills to be able to compete at all star level. They train three times a week and compete at three competitions a year, FC University nationals, ICC Nationals, and BCA Nationals even though this year they swapped BCA for Legacy in wales. Our competition squads do a mixture of stunting, tumbling, jumps and dance just like any other standard all star team would do.

 

How does your competition team compare to an All star team?

 

13422235_628685023948257_3887170064440790512_oIn our level 3 competition team we have three athletes who have competed at the Cheerleading Worlds Championships and also our head coach Stefan has been competing at Worlds since 2011.

Two of our athletes Laura Robertson and Olivia Broad have competed at worlds with Coventry Dynamite one of the most well known programs in the UK and Stefan Warren our head coach and Holly Barton our coach for the 2017-2018 season have both competed at worlds with Genesis Cheer. Holly Barton has said that the difference of training with a worlds team and with Trent Tigers is obviously different when it comes down to the level of stunts and tumbles but when it comes to commitment and conditioning it’s not much different. The level our tigers train to is extremely high and this has helped us walk away with 4 national champion titles and 3 grand champion titles as well.

What does a taster session entail?

 

“When it comes to trying out for tigers it is easy! Just show up to two of our taster sessions where we will teach you a dance in one and how to do some basic stunts in another. Our taster sessions are so much fun and a great way to get a feel for what you are doing, and also the fact you get to meet so many more people is just a bonus! From there we then have tryouts where you will perform the dance you learnt at our taster sessions and show off the stunts we taught you! There is no pressure at all, you don’t have to come with any skills at all, we have teams for everyone to fit in to and you will be surprised by how much you can learn just from a few sessions”

Another huge benefit of being part of cheerleading whilst at university is the amount of people you will meet! Nottingham Trent Tigers is huge and has so much potential for everyone who wants to join. We have a mixture of sober and going out socials which include trips to the cinema, meals and our famous society night out at ocean where we all dress up in insane fancy dress!

Why should you get involved with cheerleading at university?

 

Cheerleading is an amazing sport to get into and it doesn’t matter what age you are or what skills you have, cheerleading is for everyone. At university you get the plus of learning different things that you might not have tried before, without having to have done it in the past, whilst also getting to meet so many people at a time where everyone and everything is new around you. It is the perfect opportunity to meet people and socialise in a place you haven’t familiarise yourself with yet!

Chester Vixen need your help !

Hey guys Chester Vixens​ need your help

PLEASE share or even like this photo (not the status) to give the Chester Vixens a chance to win £750 which will help pay for training facilities.

They currently train on 2 panels of dead floor and the rest is a wooden floor. That doesn’t take away from their passion for the sport. Despite our lack of facilities, the Chester Vixens are 4x National Champions. Not only does their division getting tougher each season, they have also lost over half the squad.
The only way we can improve and have a chance at that 5th consecutive National Champ title is to train with the right equipment, allowing us to stunt at the same time, on a safe surface to get the most out of training.

Please follow this link to like their photo so they can get these mats they desperately needs. We all know what it like when you’re uni cheerleader and you don’t get any support from your university. We know as community we can help these talent ladies achieve this goal. They are 4x consecutive champions who train on 2 panel of dead floor so think what they could achieve with proper equipment.
Please please please help guys
Go to the link below and show you’re support

Your muscles ARE beautiful

Hey guys,

I felt a need to share this because it touch my heart. From a young ages I was always muscular. My arm wear always define and my thighs were bigger than most and I didn’t have boobs either. For ages I wanted to be like other girls who had no definition. I didn’t want to intimidate boys because I was as strong, if not stronger then them. It took me long time to embrace my body and becoming a cheerleader was a big part of that. Being strong in cheerleading is respected and it made me feel powerful. It gave me more confidence in my body and made we want to train even harder. I would go to the gym and do cardio and strength training and get excited when I saw my muscle getting bigger and more define instead of dreading it like I use to. This post is about embracing your body. For all the muscular girls and women like me remember you are beautiful, you are sexy and you are powerful never let anything tell you different

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
