The Community Cheerleading Championships, Manchester Velodrome, Saturday 14th May 2011.
 

Sporting Dynamite Teenies Cheerleading Squad - Team Name: Sporting Dynamite X-CITE

Placed 5th

1st time we have entered Teenies Cheerleading and we didn't really know how it would turn out, so to come home with a 5th place at your very first attempt is a fantastic achievement.  Well done, you were all great

Sporting Dynamite Teenies Pom Dance Squad - Team Name: Sporting Dynamite X-PLODE

Placed 8th

One again a new team that have never danced before and with four out of the seven children in the team never having competed at the Community Nationals before it was a better than expected result!

Sporting Dynamite Junior A Cheerleading Squad - Team Name: Sporting Dynamite X-TREEM

Placed 3rd
We did have high hopes for this team as they have been together for 2 years now but still it was the first time they have ever tried Cheer so the whole routine and dance concept was totally alien to them.  This has given the club a great start to cheerleading and hopefully something we will be able to build on over the next year.

Sporting Dynamite Junior A Pom Dance Blue Squad - Team Name: Sporting Dynamite X-CEL

Placed 9th
Mel did a great job getting this team to the competition in the first place as five weeks before the competition three people dropped out, leaving the team in an impossible situation.  They either went to comp with a bare minimum of 5 people and risk nobody was injured or taken ill or Mel was left with the task of teaching three newcomers the routine from scratch in just five hours!

The easy option would have been to pull the team out of competition and disappoint several children but thankfully Mel had the courage to go ahead regardless and for the benefit of the team she stuck with it.  The dance was brilliant and everybody should be very proud.

Sporting Dynamite Junior A Pom Dance White Squad - Team Name: Sporting Dynamite X-CESS

Placed 3rd
Pom dance is where we have been more at home in the past but this is a well contested category and third place is a serious win in anybodies book even for a team that has been together for a while.  You can never take anything for granted in this game so it was really pleasing to see the team put in a really solid performance.

Sporting Dynamite Seniors Cheerleading Squad - Team Name: Sporting Dynamite X-ECUTE

Placed 6th 
This was a solid performance by a team that know what to do, admittedly it was their first cheerleading performance as a team and I am sure it was not their best performance ever but even with the odd mistake I still thought they should have finished higher.  We will have to wait for the video to see what happened but it looked solid from the floor so I am a bit puzzled.  Clearly we need to take a good look at this!

Sporting Dynamite Seniors Pom Dance Squad - Team Name: Sporting Dynamite X-CERT

Placed 6th
Most confusing result I have seen in recent years.  The performance was great and I was hopeful of a good position so when sixth place was announced I thought like everybody else that there must have been some sort of mistake?  Perhaps it was just a little too inovative and went wide of the mark, I don't know but hopefully we will know more when the score sheets come out.

Anyhow, it was a performance I liked and I thought the choreography was really unique so as Sereena said "It means we will just have to try harder next year"

By the way every parent, helper and anybody else I spoke to, thought both of the Seniors performances were absolutely brilliant.  Go Team!


Congratulations to all the cheerleaders, coaches, staff and helpers, we are very proud of you.

UKCA Community Cheerleading Championships 2011 PDF Print E-mail

The Community Cheerleading Championships 2011 will once again take place at Manchester Velodrome on Saturday 14th May. 

The event entry fee charged by UKCA has remained at £20 per person per category but unfortunately there will be No reduction for early booking (previously £5 per person) so for those of you dancing twice the entry fee alone will be £40 hence the fee for cheerleaders entering two dances will need to increase accordingly.

As usual Sporting Dynamite will attempt to subsidise the competition costs as much as possible but this will still mean a cost of approximately £55 for those of you entering one dance and £95 for those entering two dances.  This subsidy will only be possible if everybody pays their competition costs in full, promptly. (The costs shown here are subject to several variables and therefore may have to change, so please use them as a guideline only!)

Any cheerleader who has not paid their 2011 membership or does not pay the competition fees by the due date will be immediately withdrawn from the team (No membership means No insurance which makes you ineligible to enter under UKCA rules).  Please note that we will have no option as all fees Must be paid in advance to UKCA and the club does not have funds to cover advance entry fees of £1600 plus outfits purchases taking the overall cost to well over £3000 for the event.

All indications from UKCA show that the Spectators tickets have remained the same price, £10 per person (No concessions)

Sereena Hunter (Head coach)
Julie Massey (Teenies coach)
Melissa Gouldman (Assistant coach)
Alan Massey (Coach advisor)

Happy New Year 2011 PDF Print E-mail
2010 was a great year for the club but it couldn't have been achieved without the help of several people, businesses, and funding organisations.

On behalf of Sporting Dynamite I would like to thank everybody who has helped us during the last year (especially the coaches, volunteers and helpers) and wish you all a very Happy New Year for 2011.

Here's wishing good luck, good fortune, and the best of health to everybody, thanks for everything,

The Community Cheerleading Championships, Manchester Velodrome, Sunday 17th May.
 

Sporting Dynamite Teenies

Placed 13th

Thirteenth place out of fifteen, seems like an insignificant start but its a lot better than the initial numbers indicate.  This was Sporting Dynamite's first year in competition and for a new club which was only formed three months before, just entering a squad in the first place was a huge undertaking. 

Once entered, the team danced against children much older and more accomplished than themselves as at this point (2009) there wasn't a Tiny Teenies category and even if there had been one, we still didn't have enough children under seven years to split the squad into  a "Teenies" and "Tiny Teenies" where they would have had the chance to dance against children of their own age and would have most certainly achieved a better result.

Having said all that, the Teenies squad acquitted themselves really well and to beat two other teams was a great achievement and a positive start to the clubs existence.

Sporting Dynamite Junior A

Placed 5th
The first competition ever, everybody nervous and not even sure if what we are doing is correct yet.  A fifth place wow, what a start, everybody had a great day and fifth place out of nine teams was just the start a new club needed and a positive placing to build from next year.

Sereena was so nervous she couldn't even put the disc into the sound system, "I don't think I have ever seen her shake so bad" "or have so much fun", it seemed that if she had smiled any wider she would have split in two!



To put all of this in prospective:

I have seen many teams compete over the years and I have helped UKCA with child protection and event management for more than 10 years.  It normally takes 2 years for any club to put together a squad that are ready to compete and in the first couple of years it would be nonsense to expect to achieve any significant placing so for Sporting Dynamite to get such results is their first year was nothing short of brilliant.
