    Return to Activity guidance from Sport Cheer England

    Cheerleading is one of the fastest growing sports in the country, with over 89,000 athletes across the UK. It is a high energy, team-based sport incorporating gymnastics, acrobatics and dance. 

    At Brookes the cheerleading team has been going for 13 seasons where we have won 9 National Champion Titles and 2 Grand Champion Titles.

    The cheerleading team takes on athletes of all abilities from beginners to experienced athletes, with 4 teams and a Pom team, we have a place for everyone. 

    The club is run by a committee of elected students, headed up by President Madeleine Bowker, supported by Head Coach Sophie Welton and our team of coaches.

    You can find the club on Instagram at @oxfordbrookescheerleaders

    Contact the club at  oxfordbrookescheerleaders@gmail.com


    The club consists of 4 competition teams; Infinity (level 2), Dynasty (level 2 non-tumbling), Eternity (level 1), and Legacy (level 1 non-tumbling). This year we are also introducing Envy (Pom) to cater to more athletes. 



    The club trains all throughout the week, with sessions taking place at Cheney School located next to Headington Campus as well as the Fitness Studio at Headington's Centre for Sport. A TEAMBrookes Membership is required in order to attend sessions.

    All athletes must pre-register, and complete Brookes Sport's  NHS Test & Trace form
