More than 100 athletes are now members of Spirit Elite cheerleading club in Uckfield and it is expanding again in September.
Spirit Elite was launched two years ago by Bexx Carr who is thrilled by the way it has taken off and planning to increase the number of squads from five to seven. Three will be for competitions and four for recreational.
Spaces are available in September and if your child would like to try recreational cheerleading they are welcome to go along to a session free of charge. To learn more please contact Bexx on 07446844052.
Try-outs for the competitive team are being held on Monday, July 24 from 4-7pm, and there’s a Summer Cheer Camp too, which will run from Tuesday, July 25, to Thursday, July 27, from 9am to 3pm.
Spirit Elite squads – who train at Fun Abounds Trampoline Centre on the Bellbrook Estate, Uckfield – did well in competitions last month with the Ultimate Stars coming second at Brighton and at Guildford.
The club’s second anniversary showcase has been held too with awards being presented as follows:
