57338864_679396379146642_2678596868576903168_n

 

 

Name Liv

Team: Team England Junior Advanced

Position: Side base

Age: 16

Career Goal: To win gold in the Junior Advanced division at the ICU World Championships 2019. Also to hopefully globe in the USASF World Championships one day.

 

Hi Liv

HI Caroline

 

What does it mean to you to represent your country?

I feel honoured to be given the opportunity to represent my country and show the rest of the world how far English cheerleading has come. When wearing the England uniform I feel that I am an advocate for all the cheerleaders from home, and all I want is to do good by them and make my country proud.

58379760_2337809876270131_362501106707726336_n

 

What do you most enjoy about Cheerleading?

What I enjoy most about cheerleading is the bond I have created with my team. To me, being part of a team means encouraging and supporting each other not only during the routine and at training but in everyday life as well. If I’m ever having a bad day I know that my teammates will be there to pick me up and encourage me. My team is like my second family.

57374797_2164663730283097_3421242515586547712_n

What do you feel are your main strengths in Cheerleading are?

I personally feel that my main strengths are in tumbling and performance. I have always had a passion for tumbling ever since I was little and I have been lucky enough over the years to have brilliant coaches invest their time into helping me develop this passion. When it comes to performance I can’t get enough of it! I find it makes doing a routine so much more fun as I love dancing and being sassy. Also performing helps me to ‘stay in the moment’ during the routine and therefore I am more focused on my technique when it comes to skills.

How many years have you been on Team England for e.g.  first year, second year etc

This is my fourth year on Team England. I competed on Senior All Girl Elite in both 2016 and 2017 where we won bronze and then gold at Worlds! Last year Team England decided to create the first junior national team and so I tried out in hopes of taking on this new challenge and becoming a part of historical experience. I was fortunate enough to make the Junior All Girl Advanced Team and we went on to win silver our first time at Worlds. This year I am super excited to take the ICU Junior Worlds floor again with such talented athletes!

52365726_2304246039610064_2273208816906534912_o

Why did you want to try out for Team England?

This year is the last year I am age eligible to be on the junior national team and after having such an amazing time last year I decided that I wanted to take the ICU Junior Worlds floor one last time. Also, last year I particularly enjoyed training with athletes from across the country who are of a similar age to myself and who all have such a great attitude, skill set and experience.

Name a quote that keeps you motivated.

“Hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard.” – Tim Notke

Favourite skills e.g cheer stunt, tumble or dance move.

My favourite skill is a double twist basket. At first, I found them terrifying! Getting my head around how to set off the basket toss before flipping was extremely hard for me. As I practised them more though I began to realise that they were not actually scary and in fact, it is extremely fun being thrown up in the air and twisting above peoples head. It’s a nice way of combining tumbling and baskets, both of which I love.

Share something that makes you happy:

Something that made me happy was seeing all the young cheerleaders that came to support us at the Team England showcase. The knowledge that they look up to me makes me feel proud of how far I have come since I was their age, and I hope that I am being a positive influence for them.

Which ICU Team are you most excited to see and why?

I am so excited to see Team USA Coed! They have such high difficulty throughout their routine and yet manage to perform it so cleanly; they are truly phenomenal to watch. As a Level 6 athlete myself I find it watching them inspirational and motivating.

57546483_2167502586668824_7814054337730052096_n

 How many years of experience do you have in your field?  

This is my ninth season cheerleading. I joined Unity Allstars Peach in 2011 (back when it was Level 1) after much encouragement from Tori, who at the time was my coach at school cheer. Since then I have competed on pretty much every level team, including five years experience on a Worlds team.

Which team are you apart of or have you been previously apart of?

For the past four years, I have been on Unity Allstars Ruby (International All Girl 5). However, it has been my dream to be on Black ever since I started cheerleading and this year I was finally old enough to have the opportunity to follow that dream. I decided that I wanted to take on the new challenge of Level 6 cheerleading and have thoroughly enjoyed it so far.

unity Black

What was it like when you attended try-outs for Team England?

Every year attending Team England try-outs is very nerve-racking and every year the standard at try-outs goes up. This year the skill set shown by the juniors trying-out was insane; everybody was so talented, especially when it came to tumbling! After lunch, the team list was put up on the wall. Walking towards it I was so nervous, but when I saw mine and my stunt group’s names on the list my feelings were quickly turned into excitement.

What has been your major highlights/achievements while being a part of Team England?

The highlight of my time on Team England over the years, and probably of my entire cheerleading career so far, definitely has to be winning gold with All Girl Elite in 2017. Standing on the podium singing the National Anthem was a feeling, unlike anything I have ever felt, even thinking about it now I still get butterflies.

57593716_384203955758315_7794342044159180800_n

Describe the funniest thing that’s happened to you while you were at training.

The funniest thing that has happened to me was probably when I was made to do the cheer with a crown and robe on. As I was moving around the floor the robe fell off and I kept stumbling over it, and by the end of the cheer, the crown was hanging from my hair. It was a bit of a nightmare for me but fun for everyone who was watching.

56734812_2377367985631202_4065641949636329472_o

What stunts/ techniques have you found interesting to learn and why?

This year our stunt section consists of a back handspring up from the floor to extension, which is a very advanced skill for Level 4. In order to make this stunt hit, my stunt group found that we really had to concentrate on getting our flyer’s shoulders as she did the back handspring and then all throw together on count 2. I thought this skill was interesting to learn as it requires the great concentration and the bases have to work together and communicate in order to throw in unison.

What does Worlds mean to you?

Personally, I feel that Worlds is a way cheerleaders from across the globe can make new connections and share their culture with those who share a love for their sport. I also believe that as a Worlds Team you are representatives of cheerleading in your country as a whole and Worlds is a way of showing the rest of the globe how the standard of cheer back home has improved.

57598407_391132271741860_1322429729042595840_n.jpg

 If you have been to worlds before what did it teach you?

This year will be my fifth year going to Worlds, however, I did not complete my first year as I was too young. Competing at Worlds has taught me that one of the most important things a team needs to do is communicate and encourage each other on the floor. At Worlds, the UK teams obviously do not have as big a crowd as they do at home and those who are watching usually have to stand at a distance from the floor, therefore the energy must come from within the team themselves.

What advice would you give to someone who was scared to try-out for Team England this year?

I think you should definitely give it a shot- if you don’t try it, you’ll never know what could’ve happened. Prior to the tryout make sure you practice all your tumbles on dead floor and can hit stunts consistently with your group; give yourself the best chance you can at succeeding. When you get to the try-outs just remember to relax and focus on yourself, not on what other people are doing.

57154657_411553469643694_3603964236973211648_n

What will you miss about Team England and why?

Team England is made up of coaches and athletes from all over the country, most of whom I don’t get to see very often. Over the course of the few training sessions we’ve had together, we have become a close-knit team who support and care for each other. Therefore I think what I will miss most is being able to train and catch-up with my friends from other teams who I normally would only get to see at competitions.

57246971_645922779192042_1529276410579910656_n

 

What are you most excited to experience at Worlds 2019?

It’s difficult to say what I’m most excited about- the whole Worlds trip is just such an awesome experience! One thing I am looking forward to is walking out on to the ICU floor and hearing the England crowd go wild. All the football chants and singing really get me hyped to compete. I must say the crowd support from our nation is like no other.  

Name a team from the United Kingdom and internationally that you are most excited to watch and explain why?

The UK team I am most excited to watch is Unity Allstars Royal as my little brother is on the team this year and this will be his first time competing at Worlds.

The international team I am most excited to watch is Cheer Athletics Claw 6 as they are my favourite Level 6 team and their routines are always stunning.

How many years have you been on Team Scotland for?

This is my first year on Team Scotland

Why did you want to try out for Team Scotland?

I wanted to try out for the team as this was the first unified team to ever go to the Worlds and it had always been a dream of mine to compete at the Worlds, so this year I was of age to apply

Name a quote that keeps you motivated.

I love tumbling and stunts. My favourite tumble is round off, backflip, straight

Share something that makes you happy:

I am really excited to See Team USA and also Team England as they have had lots of success at ICU in the past

How many years of experience do you have in your field?

Which team are you apart of or have you been previously apart of? I am part of the Junior Level 4 team and also Senior Elite, I originally auditioned for Junior cheer which I was selected for and then was later asked to join the Senior team as a reserve.  In January 2019 I was then told I was going to be a permanent athlete on the senior team, which has been just incredible.

56480381_10157587587613690_1565380549915181056_n

What was it like when you attended try-outs for Team Scotland?

It was very nerve-racking at the beginning as there were lots of athletes there, but I was really lucky to have 2 of my teammates from Solid Rock there too. We were all separated into groups and then had to perform a small dance section we had prepared on our own as well as stunts and tumbling.

 

What has been your major highlights/achievements while being a part of Team Scotland?

The first highlight for me was to be chosen as the Vice Captain of the Junior Team, I have loved every minute it of this, then a few weeks ago I was nominated for

The Abbie Main Award for Rookie of the Year along with 2 other dance athletes, even to have been nominated for this awards was an amazing achievement and honour for me as there are so many fantastic athletes involved in the teams this year.

 

Describe the funniest thing that’s happened to you while you were at training.

There have been loads of great memories over the months, from Team sleepover to the Christmas Lunch day out, the team is full of crazy fun loving characters and the coaches join in too,  My funniest thing, however, is when or Coach Sarah made us make up a warmup routine to the Venga boys, she just loves them

56919366_10157587524243690_6358831014533398528_n

What stunts/ techniques have you found interesting to learn and why?

I have been working on my standing tucks all season and it has been so good to learn all the new Stunt skill levels for 4 and 5, like double downs

What does Worlds mean to you?

Worlds to me is a dream come true, ever since I was a little girl I have wanted to go to Worlds and never imagined it would be a reality at only 13 years old.  I will not be watching on the TV this year

If you have been to worlds before what did it teach you?

No, I have never been to Worlds before, this is my first time and I know that I will learn many valuable lessons on this journey

What advice would you give to someone who was scared to try-out for Team Scotland this year?

Go and give it you’re all on the Floor, even just to go along to the tryouts is such an amazing experience, you will be nervous, but nerves are a good thing as it means you really care about what you are doing.

What will you miss about Team Scotland and why?

Training with Team Scotland has been the most amazing experience, I am going to miss my teammates and coaches the most, we have all built such an amazing bond together and I will be really sad to not see them every week at training.

56528964_1246343618848619_6397653322706190336_n

What are you most excited to experience at Worlds 2019?

I cannot wait to go on the floor and perform in front of friends and my family.  I am also really honoured to have my pen pal from Chicago come along too, we meet through a facebook page that was trying to connect cheerleader around the world and I met Kaylee on this through our mums.  We have been chatting on Facetime and sending parcels for 4 years now and I cannot believe that we are actually going to meet, she is coming to Worlds with her mum just to support Team Scotland.

Name a team from the United Kingdom and internationally that you are most excited to watch and explain why?

I cannot wait to Watch ADA Dark angels in Hip Hop, I have watched them at UK  31355260_10155712446689195_2384896685449191852_ncompetitions since I was young and the choreography and routines they put out are amazing,  I am also excited to Watch Unity, Coventry Dynamite and Crimson Heat, they are all amazing Teams that bring fire to the floor.  The International Teams I am most looking forward to seeing are Cali Smoed, Great White Shark and Top Gun, I have watched them on youtube and TV for many years and to actually go and support them and see the routines will be unreal

CFHTT interview with Team England athlete Nicole

Name Nicole

Team: Team England all girl Primer

Position: Flyer

Instagram @nicoleeclaire

 

What does it mean to you to represent your country?

It’s a huge honour and something which I have always aspired to do. I feel so lucky to have been given the opportunity.

What do you most enjoy about Cheerleading?

I feel like the bond with your cheerleading team is like in no other sport, and that’s what I enjoy most. You have to have so much trust in each other and be so in sync with your stunt group and team to make it work. I know everyone always says it and it sounds so cliché, but it really is like a big family.

 

What do you feel are your main strengths in Cheerleading?

Being a flyer, I love level 6 baskets and dismounts. I get to throw myself around, not just on Team England but also on my home level 6 team at Trailblazer Allstars. This is where I fell in love with level 6!

How many years have you been on Team England for e.g. first year, second year etc

This is my first year on Team England and I am so excited to take the floor with new and old friends.

all girl.png

Why did you want to try out for Team England?

This was the first year that Team England was competing Level 6 and this is my most favourite level. I was also a part of the development team last year and learned lots of new skills and wanted to continue to compete for my country at Worlds.

57216675_2382780648423269_2748457488058679296_o

Name a quote that keeps you motivated.

“Those who fear the fall will never fly” – So much so that I have it tattooed on me!

Favourite skills e.g cheer stunt, tumble or dance move.

The back one and a half basket that I do with my home team, Trailblazer Allstars.

Share something that makes you happy:

Travelling and seeing the world.

Which ICU Team are you most excited to see and why?

Team USA Coed Premier – I saw them compete last year at Worlds, they are absolutely incredible and inspirational.

 

How many years of experience do you have in your field?

I have been cheering for around 7 years now with Trailblazer Allstars, starting out on a level 3 team having previously done acrobatic gymnastics. I now compete on the Level 6 team and was part of the team who came 10th in the world at last year’s Worlds.

image7

What was it like when you attended try-outs for Team England?

Because I was on the development team, as were many other athletes trying out, there were plenty of familiar faces which made it less daunting. Ant and Heidi who are our coaches are so lovely and friendly which made it easier too.

What has been your major highlights/achievements while being a part of Team England?

I think my highlight would have to be meeting new, really talented athletes from other clubs and learning from each other.

Describe the funniest thing that’s happened to you while you were at training.

image4Obviously, it wasn’t funny at the time, but looking back it’s quite funny – Spending an evening in a neck brace in a London Hospital, 3 hours away from home.

 

What stunts/ techniques have you found interesting to learn and why?

Having never competed at level 5 before, learning some of the level 5 lib sequences was something I had never really done before. It’s always good to learn new skills to push yourself and progress further.

image2

What does Worlds mean to you?

Obviously, it’s every cheerleader’s dream to compete at Worlds and I feel so privileged to be in such a small cohort of people who can say they have been on Team England – Plus being on the team the first year they compete in Premier is amazing too.

If you have been to Worlds before what did it teach you?

To get hold of your nerves and not worry about what’s in front of you in the routine. Embrace the moment, you only have two and a half minutes on the floor – enjoy it.

What advice would you give to someone who was scared to try-out for Team England this year?

The tryouts themselves is an experience where you learn loads, you’ve got nothing to lose.

What will you miss about Team England and why?

The people on the team. We travel the furthest for training (3 hours) so it will be so difficult to see my teammates after Worlds as we live so far away. I will look forward to seeing them and catching up at competitions though.

team england all girl .png

What are you most excited to experience at Worlds 2019?

Show-offs at Allstar Sports – It’s a great atmosphere and something I have never done before. The support that Team England has is incredible so for people to turn up to watch us is insane.

image1

Name a team from the United Kingdom and internationally that you are most excited to watch and explain why?

This year Trailblazer Allstars is taking a Senior Level 3 team to the Summit, a lot of the athletes who are competing are girls we have had on the team since they were in Tiny, so to watch them compete at the Summit having known and coached them for years will be really special.

TGLC is a personal favourite team of mine – I just love how creative their routines are and the atmosphere when they perform. I’m really looking forward to seeing them too.

Thank you for sharing your journey with us and we wish you all the success at Worlds 2019.
