Cheer and Gym Society
Who are we? The FIREBIRDS
What do we do? We are an ALL-INCLUSIVE level 1 cheer team (boys that includes you too, we need you on the team too!) who stunt, tumble, jump and dance both competitively and recreationally. (With also having had a level 2 team pre-covid which will be returning at some point along with higher levels too if you are up for a challenge!) We compete all over the UK with hopes to get involved in uni competitions this year once we get told we can do so from cheer governing bodies.
When do we train/compete? In previous years, competitive cheer training has been on Tuesday and Thursday evenings with stunt clinics for extra practice available on Wednesday afternoons and recreational cheer training has been on Wednesdays. We envision this to stay pretty much the same in addition to competing a few times a year- however all is yet to be confirmed due to covid potentially affecting plans slightly! We will be working on integrating a little bit of fitness and gymnastics throughout sessions also. We have a few extra practises throughout the season where we use an external gym with sprung floor- these have been on a Sunday in the past and are not too far from uni!
Where do we train/compete? We train in our sports centre Robert Lowe which is a 6-minute walk from uni (this statistical fact is sponsored by Google maps)
Why be a part of the Firebirds? Cheerleading to us means family. We are a tight knit group of friends who love spending time together and having fun, both during sessions and out! Nothing feels better than hitting a stunt perfectly and we cannot wait for you to discover that feeling! Come feel the adrenaline rush as we bring out the sharpest, cleanest and sassiest routine out on all floors!
The Firebirds are back to back National Champions and we are looking for new members to help us to retain our title!
We would LOVE for you to join us! Follow our social media to keep up with all the events we have planned and look out for taster sessions we will be holding and updates!
