Southern Cross Cheerleading (SCC) is based in Northcote, an inner northern suburb of Melbourne.
We are one of the most successful cheer and dance programs in the country. SCC is more than just a cheer and dance club, we are a family.
Founded in October 2010, we have grown from humble beginnings to become one of the most successful cheer and dance programs in the country. We now have a purpose built facility with over 150 athletes and multiple university and scholastic programs calling our club home.
We pride ourselves on providing a nurturing and supportive environment for our athletes and teams. Teaching life skills such as sportsmanship, teamwork, leadership, confidence, problem solving, working through adversity we help our athletes develop into true ambassadors of our sport.
We offer programs for everyone aged 5 and above. This includes people brand new into the sport all the way up to some of the most experienced cheer athletes in the world. We are always excited to welcome new athletes into our family. Everyone will be offered a place at SCC. We have catered teams for athletes of all ages and abilities. This ensures we can place each person where they are best suited and maximise their enjoyment and progression.
There are a number of ways to join. The first thing you need to do is browse our site and see what programs we offer. Once you have done that, contact us and we will get things rolling! Upon enquiry to the club we will request some basic information about yourself and your experience in, or related to, cheer or dance which will then help us recommend the best way to get started.
We pride ourselves on making sure our staff are highly trained and all hold the same core beliefs of our great club. All coaches are fully certified to coach cheer and dance, they also have current working with children checks. On top of this we hold regular training sessions throughout the year to ensure our staff are up to date with current techniques, are following their teams plans, and are creating and reassessing team goals where needed. Our coaches and administration staff are very approachable, supportive and happy to hear any concerns and address any situations that may occur. We also have a strong support network behind our coaches to help them through any situation. This is to ensure that our athletes are always in a safe and supportive environment
