Squad History

The squad was set up in September 2006 as an extra-curricular dance club at Yorkshire Martyrs Catholic College by, Charlotte Robinson, Claire Greenwood and Lauren Evans, who at the time worked as P.E assistants in their gap year prior to attending university.

 

Cheerleading soon became the dance style of choice for a group of 21 girls, and the squad was born. They started to perform in school and were invited to numerous dance festivals to showcase this new dance style. The squad grew from strength to strength and now has over 60 squad members.

 

Towards the end of the year the squad attended the UKCA National schools championships at Manchester Velodrome, where they gained their first victory, becoming National Schools Champions in pom dance for 2007. The coaches continued to train the squad whilst attending university, and this commitment lead the squad to its second consecutive title of National Schools Pom Dance Champions 2008. This victory gave them the opportunity to compete at the highest level as they were invited to the Americheer International Championships 2009 in Disneyworld, Florida. They fought hard against some very strong American squads and gained 6th place, an amazing achievement for such a young squad.

 

Since 2007 the team competed at several regional, national and international competitions, collecting numerous trophies along the way, part of this success was down to the support of the school. Following the schools closure and the loss of financial help, the squad still wanted to continue so Coach Charlotte agreed to run the squad on a voluntary basis in her free time.

 

In their first year on their own, the team found training facilities at Bradford Gymnastics Club, where they trained every week. They also competed in 3 large competitions a season receiving several titles as a team and individually, both nationally and internationally.

The squads success is down the unwavering support of parents, friends and family, who ultimately helped to keep this squad alive.
