Welcome to the home of West Coast Heat!

Cheerleading is a team-based sport that involves stunting, pyramids, baskets, tumbling, jumps and dance. It was initially started in the USA, and now its the fastest growing sport in the UK. Why? Because it’s fun! To perform a Cheerleading routine you need to be able to throw someone in the air then immediately do your gymnastics tumble pass. You need to have a variety of skills to complete a routine – and this variety means the sport is always exciting!

Competitive Cheerleading is a very athletic sport, that does not involve pom-poms (like sideline Cheer). It involves competing a high-energy, two and a half minute routine at competitions across the country (and abroad!). Teams compete against other Cheer teams and a panel of judges score the routines, to decide the rankings.

Every athlete gains so much from doing Cheerleading. Not only athletic skills, like learning to jump, stunt and flip, but also lifelong friends!

Being part of a team means you work together for the same goal, gaining trust in your teammates and building your own confidence both on and off the Cheer mat! Cheerleading also fosters team-working skills, good sportsmanship and commitment in athletes. West Coast Academy is a safe, supportive, fun environment, to make sure athletes progress to be the best Cheerleaders they can be!
