Cheerleading

About

Central City Allstars 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. It's hard work but absolutely worth it and we recommend anyone of any skill-set (even if you have none!) to come along. We encourage outside of training socials and fundraisers for team members to get to know each other better!

Trials & Taster Sessions

Tryouts will be held in September/October time, exact date TBC. Check our Facebook Page/ Instagram for the exact dates once it has been announced. We ask that you attend the session in appropriate gym wear and bring a water bottle! We select our team members in a fair process looking at what skills people bring, if they showed a proactive attitude to learn and a willingness to try new skills!

Training

We have weekly training sessions, every Friday at 6-8pm at City Sport Gym. We will also have a couple weekend trainings closer to competition. Training dates will be given at the beginning of each season. Training is mandatory and we ask that you tell us in advance if you are unable to attend a session.

Competitions

We compete at Level 1 and in 3-4 competitions each season. The competitions are held in the second term of university and on weekends. The competitions we compete in are:

  • Legacy Cheer and Dance Alpha & Omega
  • British Cheerleading Association (BCA) University Nationals
  • International Cheerleading Coalition (ICC) University Nationals
  • Future Cheer University Nationals
