It's so good to be back! 💛

Updated: Nov 8, 2021

Our return to the gym seems like so long ago now. But almost all our athletes have now returned to training in the gym. It has been amazing to see our athletes excited faces walking into the gym. Including our parents who have been so supportive and also relieved to have their kids back to doing what they love. Read more about what's happening in November!

Some feedback from our staff on our first week back:

"Was so good to be back! Was proud all of my teams, they have done so well with remembering their routines" Coach Darcee
"It was really fun & positive as a coach AND as an athlete. Lots of people just so pleased to have their 'me time' back." Coach Kez
"Sitting at the desk welcoming everyone was amazing! The kids AND parents were so excited to be back, running in without them saying bye was my favourite thing!" Siena, Reception
"Tiny Tumblers were pretty funny they were really good, such great listening from all of them, especially being first week back! They seemed very happy and tired at the end." Coach Georgia

What's coming up?

SHOWOFFS EVENT: Sunday 12 December - SAVE THE DATE! 🌟

We are really looking forward to holding another Showoffs Event to finish off this crazy year. We love Showoffs, as unlike competitions, we get to all be together in the gym with our families to support our athletes. We also get to see so many routines from our amazing teams. This time our athletes will all be wearing their cheer uniforms which we are super pumped for as our photos will look amazing with our Shire Elite banners in the background. An Event Program will be sent out late November with information on times for athletes to meet for warm up, performance times and other useful information. This event is free for family and friends to attend. Please mark this date in your calendars!

Athlete Assessments 🤸‍♂️

We have begun athlete assessments to determine which team(s) each athlete will be placed on in 2022.

For all our Cheer Fun, Cheer Sport and Cheer Novice teams athletes will continue with their same team unless they have aged out and need to move to the next age group e.g. from a Mini Team to a Youth Team.

We will be identifying athletes from Cheer Sport or Cheer Novice that may be showing potential for placement on a Cheer Novice or Cheer Elite team. These moves are not mandatory and athletes can certainly remain in a Cheer Sport or Cheer Novice team if prefered.

Assessments for all Cheer Elite athletes are starting to take place during their normal training. Each individual athlete is thoroughly assessed to determine if they have mastered the required skills for the next level (in particular tumble). We will also take into account the athletes coach-ability, work ethic and mindset to determine which team they will add the most value to.

2022 Team Placements ✨ Next year we are forecasting our gym growing to a huge 24 cheer and dance teams! More information about Teams and Placements will be provided in our December blog. Athletes will receive an email in mid-late December with their Team Placements for 2022.

CheerBrandz Nationals

A reminder that we will not be taking our full gym to this competition. This is due to athletes being unavailable as indicated in our recent survey. However, we are so excited to announce that we will be able to compete with our Open Level 3NT team Dynasty and our Adult Dance teams; Prestige, Diamantes and Crowns. Good luck to these teams and we look forward to seeing their routines

REMINDER: No Gym Closure

Since AASCF Nationals Competition is no longer going ahead, all previously set closure dates for 2021 are no longer required. These dates were Wed 24 Nov - Sun 5 Dec. So the gym will now remain completely open for all classes and teams until the end of Term 4.
