About Us and Our Teams
Plymouth University Storm Cheerleaders are a club that welcomes all students and all levels of ability. We create opportunities for athletes who want to compete at the higher levels to students who want to keep fit and have fun as well as getting to know other sports clubs in a social environment. We hold taster sessions at the start of the year to introduce people to the sport as we welcome people to join our spirit and competition squads.
We have 2 teams at Plymouth Storm - Level 1 and Level 3 - where team placements are decided through tryouts at the beginning of the year. As a club, we attend 2 competitions a year and compete against other cheer teams and Universities, as well as performing our routines at showcase alongside the Spirit team. We train at Thomas Pitts Memorial Hall on the University campus, but once a week, we have access to Zero Gravity gymnastics centre in Saltash to practice the tumbling sections of our routines!
Spirit is our side line cheer team, we practice stunts up to level 2, tumble and dance. As well as this we cheer at American football and basketball games! We train Saturday mornings 10-12 each week, and have games on Wednesday and Sundays.
As a team we hold weekly themed socials on a Wednesday, where we enjoy a night in walkabout with other sports club. Alongside sober socials previously including bowling and trampoline parks. These socials are a great way to socialise and develop great relationships within the team. We also enjoy two group meals one at Christmas and an awards meal at the end of the year to celebrate our successes as a team.
We have many events throughout the year. Our competition squads attend 2 competitions a year which is for our main routine squads. Our Spirit team attends regular American Football, Basketball and Lacrosse games. We also hold multiple fundraising events across the year such as the Cheerathon, cake sales and even a joint fundraiser with subway where our charities get 10% of the profits from the day of our event. We also hold a Cheer showcase allowing friends, family and people in Plymouth to see what our competition and spirit squads can do.
