Cheerleading is a competitive and social team sport which incorporates different elements such as stunting, tumbling, jumps and dance.
JMSU Jets is the Cheerleading Society at LJMU and has been running for many years. Our team currently consisits of 4 teams: a level 2 competitive team, a small pom (competitive dance) team and a level 1 competititve team and a recreational/development non-competitive team. We are looking for both males and females to compete with us for the 2020/21 season or simply come along to learn the basics of cheerleading and have some fun!!
Our competitive teams usually compete in 2/3 national competitions per year against other teams across the country, including the University National Championships. Every year we are asked to performed at the Star Spirit Cheer and Dance Showcase in February. With the help of our coaches at Star Spirit Cheer and Dance, we were able to put out all of our teams involved and they get a chance to perform.
For the new year we plan to have two competitive cheer teams and one recreational team with the chance to perform at showcase/performances across the year, as well as a competitive Pom team. We are a mixture of 1st, 2nd and 3rdyear students as well as students furthering their education with postgraduate courses. We encourage all abilities to come forward to join our squad. Although Cheerleading is a physically demanding sport, it is very enjoyable to take part as a team while building great friendships within the group.
