Budding cheerleaders are invited along to an open day being organised by a new group in Uckfield on Sunday, May 3.
It will be held from 9.30 to 11.30am at Fun Abounds Trampoline Centre, on the Bellbrook Industrial Estate, and there will be the chance to try out some cheerleading, see some uniform and ask questions.
Spirit Elite, an Allstar Cheerleading squad, has been founded by Bexx Carr who has been a cheerleader herself for nearly eight years.
She started as a member of Brighton and Hove Albion’s Gullys Girls, where she became captain and ran the squad, and she went on to join and compete with the Chichester Cheetahs at Chichester University, where she studied dance.
She has been teaching dance classes in the area but realised there wasn’t a competitive cheerleading squad in Uckfield so thought she would set one up and use her coaching skills.
Classes are to be held at Fun Abounds Trampoline Centre each week on Wednesdays. Sessions for Reception to Year 6 children will take place from 5.30 to 6.30pm, and for Years 7 to 13, from 6.30 to 7.30pm.
Bexx, who attended Manor Primary School and Uckfield Community Technology College, is looking forward to welcoming people, interested in learning more about cheerleading, at the open day at Fun Abounds on Sunday.
If you would like to speak to Bexx she can be contacted on 07446844052. Her email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
