UCheer is the University of Canterbury’s competitive cheerleading club. We are a sports club that competes nationally and internationally in professional cheerleading. This includes stunting, tumbling and dance divisions. UCheer provides professional coaching in cheerleading skills across an elite and a development squad. The club combines a unique skill base in a social environment. The competition season as of August 2015 saw UCheer ranked as the the highest level University squad in New Zealand, and the 2016 season saw UCheer as the first NZ university team to ever compete internationally.
We welcome new members, male or female at any time, regardless of skill! So come down, give it a go, and meet some fantastic new people. Members outside of UC are welcome too, so bring all your friends!
