Cheerleading is a sport that involves females and/or males performing a 2 minute & 30 second routine composed of stunting, pyramids, group tumbling, jumping and a dance break. This routine is performed and scored against other teams at various local, national, and international competitions.
When we refer to group tumbling, we mean skills like cartwheels and back handsprings. Stunting refers to a group of individuals that elevate another cheerleader into the air. Pyramids are a form of stunting but are done as a large group and are interconnected. The dance break is a portion of a routine that consists of choreographed high-energy dance moves.
Our athletes are not only trained to get their bodies to peak physical fitness but also learn the important “life lesson’s” of respect, dedication, self-confidence, commitment, sportsmanship and most importantly, teamwork.
SCC is known throughout Australia and worldwide for our amazing competitive cheer teams. We started in October 2010 with 10 athletes. Fast forward to the present and we have grown tenfold to encompass over 10 cheer teams covering all ages and levels from novice level 1 through to our successful level 5 and 6 world championship teams.
We are proud to offer 3 streams of cheerleading teams, Recreational, All Star and Elite. Read on for more information on each stream.
Our recreational classes are the perfect place to start cheer. These are non-competitive teams that train once weekly. In these teams you will learn all about this amazing sport and how to perform the various skills with confidence.
We use the same amazing coaches for all our teams. This means that the Rec classes are coached by the same people that coach the All Star and Elite teams. That way you know you are being taught the correct techniques from the moment you start with SCC through to the highest levels.
Currently we have the following recreational teams that you can join!
|Genesis||5-9 Years||Monday||4:30-5:30pm||Taking term 1 enrolements now!|
|Solar||10-15 Years||Monday||5:30-6:30pm||Taking term 1 enrolements now!|
All Star cheerleading teams differ from other competitive sports by training year-round for competitions. They also differ from most other sports in that every team member is vital to the team’s success. Each member of the squad is trained in all aspects of the sport in order to develop their skills to reach their maximum potential.
All Star teams typically consist of 5 to 38 athletes. Squads can be either co-ed or all girl. Teams are carefully constructed to include all the elements needed to perform the complex routines of basing, flying, tumbling and dancing. All Star athletes are capable of performing all of these skills in a routine setting.
Competition routines are typically 2.30 minutes in length. Music is added to each element and transition of the routine to enhance the intricate choreography. At competitions the teams are divided by age and ability level. The routines are judged based on difficulty, execution, creativity, and showmanship.
These teams train twice a week and have more specific goals set for both the team and individual. Our teams can compete at 4-6 competitions a year.
Currently we have the following all star cheer teams.
|Starburst||Youth Novice||1||5-11 years||2||2.5|
|Prominence||Senior||1||10 - 18 years||2||2.5|
|Eclipse||Senior||2||10 - 18 years||2||3.5|
|Aurora||Senior||3||10 - 18 years||2||4|
|Flare||Open Coed||2||14+ years||2||4|
