Why Cheerleaders in the UK aren’t getting the ‘cheesy’ treatment
By MICHAEL FOGGOSWORTH In an interview with The Guardian newspaper, the British cheerleading team are taking a stand against “sloppy” practices.
“Cheerleading is a fantastic sport,” a spokesperson for the British Olympic Association said in a statement.
“That is why the British Association of Cheerleading wants to change the way we train, the way the cheerleading programme is run, and the way our athletes are treated by our governing body.””
We have had the courage to take a stand for a cleaner sport.
“That is why the British Association of Cheerleading wants to change the way we train, the way the cheerleading programme is run, and the way our athletes are treated by our governing body.”
The spokesperson continued: “There is an increasing perception among some of the sport’s most dedicated cheerleaders that cheerleading is now being treated like a business, that it’s not really about sport at all.
She said the sport had an important role to play in encouraging younger people to be involved in sports.
“We know that cheerleaders who are enthusiastic and talented can become the face of the UK’s cheerleading.
The British cheerleaders, the UK Olympic Association and the British Cheer Association are united in our mission to make cheerleading a more inclusive sport, and are committed to doing so.
This means that cheerleader bodies are accountable for how their cheerleaders perform on the field and are held accountable for ensuring that their performance is up to par.””
We are committed that all cheerleaders have the opportunity to play an integral role in the sport they love,” the spokesperson said.”
To that end, we will work closely with all sport bodies to promote a culture of cheerleading in the future.””
To date, the BCA has taken a range of actions, including supporting the establishment of a national cheerleading training programme, increasing training opportunities for our cheerleaders and implementing new rules that will make it more difficult for young women to be excluded from the sport.”
The BCA will continue to support the growth of cheerleader activities and training, including by promoting the development of a new national cheerleader training programme.
“The BAI is part of the British government’s Olympic Development Fund and the country is hoping to host the Games in 2024.
The UK has one of the largest cheerleading teams in the world with a population of around 100,000.
The national Olympic team was founded in 1932 and the team has won four gold medals and six silver medals.
British Olympic Association (BOA) chairman Jeremy Hunt, who chairs the British Government’s Olympic Advisory Group, told The Guardian: “This is about sport, about representing the country and the people who represent it, so it is very important that we do everything we can to make sure that cheer is a very positive part of our sporting history.”
That’s why we are looking to do a lot of things, including increasing the number of British cheermasters, who will be training at the Olympics, but we need the Olympic Committee to be in place to help with that.”
He added: “We need to make a decision about the Olympic Games as soon as possible.
We need the right people in place.
I want the Olympic committee to be a very supportive body.”
“If we can achieve that we will be able to have a great time at the Olympic Park.”
