The Diary of a University Cheerleader

Wildlife CD Cover

Hey guys,

With the end of term fast approaching November has been an extremely busy month for the Tigers. All training is well underway and each team is working extremely hard to prepare for their first performance in January. We recently announced all of the important information for our annual showcase Odyssey!

Odyssey is an opportunity for all of our athletes to display their routines to friends, family and a panel of judges for our competition teams. In previous years our showcase has been extremely successful, so much so that this year it’s even bigger and better than before. We invite teams across the UK to come and perform with us as well as performances from other teams at NTU. This year our showcase will be on Saturday 26th January and tickets will be available to buy from January 1st online and from members of NTU Cheerleading.

November was also another successful month for our charity work. One of our athletes ran a project to raise money for NTU’s John Van Geest Cancer Research Centre. We had another themed training session to raise money by wearing anything with glitter! Alongside this our President and Secretary organised donation boxes for Operation Christmas Child. For this our stunt groups wrapped a shoe box in Christmas paper and then filled it with toys, practical items, books and fun treats to send off to those in less fortunate circumstances! Lots of groups got involved and really enjoyed helping.

With such a large team now this year we have decided to implement Team Captains in order to help organise each squad. Each team had people put themselves forward for the role and their respective coaches and captains chose the best candidate. Team Captains are responsible for keeping their squad motivated at each training session, chasing payments for kit and subs as well as helping our Marketing and Communications Officer by sending content from each session to keep our social media looking good. The Tigers also award an athlete each week with Cheer Hun Tuesday, to recognise their hard work and commitment to the team. Team captains will also nominate a member of their squad each week to be recognised. One of our captains reported that after starting with a brand new squads everyone has worked hard together to start learning new things. They can now perform pyramids, basket, cradle, log rolls and have learnt two short dances. The team is working really hard to progress and everyone is enjoying it so much!

 

As well as our regular social events we held a welcome event so everyone could get to know each other. As we have previously done we held a Pizza and Prosecco night at Be At One which was a fantastic event with a great turn out. It was a great opportunity for new and returning members to all mix and get to know each other. Our fantastic Social Secretaries have even more events in the works before the end of term.

Each year NTU holds a This Girl Can week to promote female empowerment and involvement in sports and activities. Our members got involved by supporting another predominantly female sport at their home match on our Clifton Campus. Some of our competition teams even wore pink to training to support This Girl Can.

10 things I learnt at the Tumble safe active camp by BigG Tumble camps

In the UK cheer community,

tumbling is still a major issue which is setting UK athletes back. Not only on there own sole but especially internationally.
UK athletes and Coaches are desperate to learn but aren’t sure where to start.
Big G Tumbling is a great starting place for coaches who want to learn from the ground up. We are excited to share the 10 things we learnt at the Tumble Safe Active camp and how they have changed our mindset about key aspects of coaching tumbles.

The Diary of a University Cheerleader featuring Nottingham Trent Tigers

The Diary of  a University Cheerleader featuring Nottingham Trent Tigers

 

 

October has been a very successful start to the season for the Tigers. At the beginning of the month, we held tryouts across our City and Clifton campuses and had over 300 people try out! We had so much interest from freshers and returning students that we put on extra taster sessions so people could attend. Our coaches had a tough time figuring out our teams as the standard was so high this year, this resulted in us creating another team giving us a total of 8 teams. This year we have a Performance squad who will be performing at our charity and external events this year, multiple Varsity squads who participate in the largest annual varsity series in Europe and our Competition squads that will be competing nationally.

Our team has been training hard, learning and perfecting new stunts and tumbles. The Competition teams have started preparing for this year’s competitions already, with Head Coach Stefan teaching them everything they need to know for their routines. The competition teams also train weekly at the local EMCA gym to practise their tumble skills with our Tumble coach Josh. Our training team is also super impressed with how our athletes’ skills are developing, learning difficult stunts and picking up dances and sequences.

 

This year we really want to increase our charity and community involvement and what better way to do that than begin the year as we mean to go on! This month our athletes participated in themed training sessions which included wearing yellow for World Mental Health day and dressing as superheroes to support a charity helping children with cancer. In one session alone we were able to raise over £65 and money is still being collected over the next week in aid of the charity.

Also this month we have had our weekly social to Ocean with other sports teams and societies at NTU. This is a great opportunity for our athletes to get together and have some fun! With so many squads it’s always nice to have a whole club social so that members from different squads can get to know each other. This month our members dressed up as Tigers and for themes including back to school and zoo project. Everyone made a huge effort and looked fantastic! Our Social Secretaries have also been busy planning our first welcome event for the club. It’s due to take place in November and we’re very excited!
