University of Greenwich Mermaids Cheerleading
Fancy competing across the country and meeting a great group of students whilst doing so?
Whether you're just starting at the University or continuing, joining the University of Greenwich Mermaids is a great way to improve fitness and flexibility as well having a great time!
Cheerleading is one of the fastest growing sports in Britain, and here at Greenwich we are no exception! With both competitive and social elements to our team, we like to work hard and play hard. Being a Cheerleader is all about having a good time, and everyone is welcome to come and be a part of our friendly and fun-loving squad!
Anyone is welcome to join, whether you’re male, female, a cheerleader, dancer, gymnast or just fancy trying something a bit different. We welcome ALL abilities, and our experienced coaches will build your skills and train everyone from the ground upwards, and we have different squads to match your skills.
We compete in Coed and All Girl divisions at Level 1 both regionally and nationally.
We are currently #2 in the country
We also have a non-competing squad for those who don't meet our comp requirements, although this will be regularly monitored and altered where necessary, as well as for those who simply don't wish to compete but want to be a part of the team. Cheer is perfect for those who wish to keep fit, make friends and potentially try something new.
Monday 19:00- 22:00
Tuesday 20:00 - 22:00 (Competing Squad - with potential to finish later when necessary)
Our Monday training takes place in the Dance Studio on Mansion Site. From Greenwich you can use the free uni bus which runs until late or the 286.
It’s not all about training and competitions. We hold socials every week which are always a good laugh, and give you the opportunity to mix with the other sports teams and societies. This year we’ve got some great nights out planned already; some will be fancy dress and some will be dress to impress but no matter what you’re wearing, our socials are always an entertaining night! As well as the opportunity at socials to get to know the rest of the Team Greenwich sports clubs, we also go on a Sports Tour! For a few days over Easter every year we go away with all the other teams to catch some sun, wear some amazing costumes and sometimes play a bit of sport. This year we will be going to Croatia with ILoveTour.
Take a look at our social media pages where you’ll find our team updates and information about what we've been up to, competitions, training sessions and social events.
