But don't worry if you find that idea daunting, being on the game day squad isn't compulsory so please feel free to come along to classes, learn the rountines and just have some fun! Everyone is welcome, regardless of gender and ability; the whole point is to learn and improve together, as a team, after all we can't have our cheerleaders feeling any less than cheerful!!

As a society we recognise the importance of giving back to our local community and therefore support local charities through fundraisers and volunteering held throughout the year. Our current charity is RISE, a national award winning charity, providing sanctuary and support for the victims of domestic abuse in Sussex.
