Cheerleading

About

Central City Allstars (CCA) is the competitive Cheerleading team for City, University of London. We have one team that consists of 30 - 40 athletes. Everyone is welcome to try-out and this will determine if we enter the season as an All-girl team or Co-Ed (male & female athletes).

Cheerleading is the most rewarding and enjoyable sport. Our routines are a combination of stunting, tumbling, jumps and dance. Training is hard work but is absolutely worth it when we attend competitions in February-March. We recommend anyone of any skillset (even if you're a beginner!) to come along. We encourage outside of training socials and fundraisers for team members to get to know each other better!

2022/2023 Trials

  • Friday 30th September, 6pm - 8pm @ CitySport
  • Sunday  1st October, 1pm - 3:30pm @ CitySport

We ask that you attend the session in appropriate gym wear, arrive 10 minutes early and bring a water bottle! We select our team using a fair process looking at what skills people bring, if they showed a proactive attitude to learn and a willingness to try new skills!

Email citycheerleading@gmail.com for more information.
