The team work hard every Wednesday night with coach Gemah - who is strict and runs a tight ship - but the team love her tough love - and winning as a result! Also coaching is Artemis director Niki Robinson. First sunday of each month the team also train on a sprung floor in Redam Gym, with additional guest gym coaches where needed. 

The team is co-ed - we have boys and girls. Cheer is a tough sport and dance discipline - we don't use pom poms, these dancers are athletes who train in gymnastics, stunts at height and are strong all round performers. 

This is a level 2 team - for cheerleaders with experience, or teen dancers with gymnastic backgrounds, and a good dance technique. Entry onto the team is by audition in autumn and the summer free workshops. 

We also have smaller stunt groups who compete seaprately - a level 2 and a level 3. We are 2017 NATIONAL CHAMPIONS for Senior Co-Ed Level 2 stunt! BEST IN BRACKNELL AND THE UK

In depth

We are mid size senior team (we limit to 18 members to make sure everyone gets attention). All are athletes who work super hard to put together fabulous routines, with stunts, gym and dance, and then take them to competitions throughout the UK

All team members audition for their place by joining in a free trial class (no prep needed). There are 16-18 team members in any year, and we perform at festivals, competitions and public events.

We work in a light, bright studio space, with matts and safety equipment at Carnation Hall in north Bracknell. We also train on the first Sunday of each month in term time (3 sessions per term) - adding a minimun 9 additional sessions each year. In June and July, there are an additional two Sunday sessions each month to prepare for the Bournmouth internationals. 

In 2014 the team traveled to Disney World in Florida where they performed as Zombies for the Halloween celebrations! They will have the chance to return to Disney in 2018. 

Anyone offered a place on the team must be available for all competitions ( a list will be given upon an offer, or you can have a quick look at our fixtures list online). If even one member is unavailable - the whole team lose out.

UNIFORM

This class has a very strict uniform requirement. Students will be expected to purchase the required cheer clothing and footwear before their first class as a member. Parents will be given a list of links to suppliers (where they can purchase directly). This uniform is non-negotiable - it is worn for health and safety reasons and children who come to class without the correct clothes and shoes will not be allowed to participate as they may hurt themselves or others. Parents should budget approximately £150 for the whole uniform.
