What a start to the year! 💛

We’re now almost halfway through term 1 and everyone has been settling into their teams and classes. Over the past few weeks, we have been getting to know everyone and forming bonds and connections with teammates. Here’s a little about what we've been working on.

Recreational Classes

Our focus has been on getting familiar with the different parts of a routine, the names of skills and starting to learn the basic skills in cheer stunting and tumble for their age group.

Cheer Teams

We’re working on synchronisation and making all the basic skills and motions look as similar as possible. We’ve been deciding on roles for stunt groups, formations and other elements of routines, which can take some time to make these important decisions. We are also working hard to build our athlete's fitness for stunting and tumbling. This is so we are better able to train with consistent results for the full duration of tumble and team training. Cheer is an anaerobic fitness sport that requires a lot of focus. It can be hard for us to get the most out of our athletes, both physically and mentally, the whole time until we have built up that fitness and strength.

Adult Cheer

Our Legacy team are currently working on learning individual skills for their main stunt, and are focusing on remembering their new jump set & counts.

Dance Teams

We have been working on cardio fitness and stretching after a long break, and focusing on new choreography each week, that has a different pace and vibe to the previous chorey.



Cheer Stars athletes

This year all of our Cheer Stars athletes receive a brand new uniform. We're so excited about our new design in 2023! Invoices for Uniform fees will be sent out shortly and fees will be deducted on Fri 3 Mar from your bank account or card details supplied for your fees. We will be holding a uniform sizing day on Sat 18 Mar for our Cheer Stars athletes to come in and be sized. Please come in at any time during your time-slot as we have 1 sizing kit and so ask for your patience in trying on sizes.

Sat 18 Mar: Uniform sizing day for Cheer Stars

12pm-12:45pm: Tiny Topaz + Mini Opals

1pm-1:45pm: Mini Nobles + Regals

2pm-2:45pm: Mini Hearts + Jewels

3pm-3:45pm: Mini Aces + Regency

Cheer Advance & Cheer Elite athletes new in 2023

Our Elite uniform will remain from 2022 so only our athletes new to Shire Elite this year will require a new uniform and those wanting a new size. We will be sizing our new athletes during classes.


💖 A note to parents & carers

Arriving to training: Please arrive a few minutes early (no more than 10min) to your class each week to allow time to place your water bottle and belongings in the bag room, say hi to your friends and be ready to start your class on time. If other classes are running when you arrive, please sit and wait, no jumping on equipment or interrupting classes. If you arrive late, you must see our admin staff at reception so they can mark the roll.

Parents/Carers in the gym: We ask that parents please DO NOT enter the gym floor for any reason. This is important for the safety of both parents and our athletes to avoid injury, disruption of athletes and so that classes have the full dedicated floor space & equipment for their training session. You are welcome to wait and watch outside the gate if our roller door is open. If you need to speak to our admin staff please come through our glass doors to our reception desk.
