The CL Cheerleading Academy are based in Kirby Cross/Clacton on sea Essex . We provide classes across Tendring using cheerleading as a way for children, teenagers, adults and the local community to work together, learn new skills and have fun in an interactive and social sport. Our teachers branch out to local schools and towns to teach this newly loved sport as well as run youth and adult fitness classes at local gyms and school halls. We aim to provide safe and challenging cheerleading and dance classes, however ensuring that the atmosphere and experience isn't as dawnting and as serious as some. We ensure our children learn through fun and play and have a smile on their face. We support many local fundraisers ourself and perform free of charge at these events to help them boost funds for their project and our local community.
Recently within the squad our numbers in children/adults wanting to participate has grown, meaning for us as an all stars team, we have experimented with creating dance squads and level 1&2 competing teams. These teams have practiced and competed at both local and regional competitions and events. On the other hand, we're such a small voluntary team with little funds to progress we're struggling to help our squad take that next step to placing higher at competitions and expanding their possibilities. Our children have worked incredibly hard on improving their skills and working collaborativly becoming a strong team. However, everything revolving around renting space and Cheer equipment itself being highly expensive we're struggling to progress any further. Our main goal is to improve our cheerleading classes with better resources to help their skills and confidence improve. This crowdfunder page is to raise as much money as possible to gain us:
- An air track
- Better rehearsal space
- Tumbling equipment
- Our own warehouse with sprung flooring (eventually...)
Gaining any of these means that our children can not only progress but enter more competitons and have a higher chance of placing. The team members all have the determination, skills and positive attitudes to make it further in the UK Cheerleading community. The team would be grateful for any pennies you could spare. With your help we can progress further and help the team get stronger and get to where they wish to be.
