A Grand Finale to Season 2!

Our 2nd full season as a club has now come to an end – and what a fantastic year it has been! We expanded our recreational classes and competitive teams and we saw great progress from all of our cheerleaders.

Cheer City Nationals 2018

The final competition of the season for our 7 competitive teams was Cheer City Nationals, in Leicester on the 23rd and 24th of June. It’s safe to say we finished on a high with some fantastic results

Ember (Tiny Novice) – 1st Place! An amazing result for our newest and youngest team, only formed 4 months ago. Well done girls!

Sparkle (Mini Community Level 1) – 2nd Place. Great improvement from their first competition with lots of new tumbling and stunts performed!

Glimmer (Mini Level 1) – 3rd Place. Glimmer really showed what they were made of in a big division of 9 teams. Another huge score improvement (2.5 points!) from their last competition.

Flames Extreme (Mini GS Level 1) – 1st Place! Flames Extreme were over the moon to place first after being so close at their other competitions. They competed some very difficult stunts which they should all be proud of!

Explosion (Junior GS Level 1) – 1st Place! Our Junior group stunt absolutely smashed their final competition, hitting a their elite routine and managing to get the highest % score of all junior and senior group stunts at the competition – amazing!

Inferno (Senior Level 1) – 2nd Place. Our oldest team put on a fantastic show and their confidence definitely shined through against tough competition (a division of 10). We can’t wait to see what Inferno can do next season!

Blaze (Youth Level 1) – 1st Place. After being so close to 1st place at both earlier competitions, Blaze really wanted to win this one! And with a flawless routine they not only did that, but they also became Youth Grand Champions – for the highest score across all Youth teams, a fantastic 95%. Amazing Result!

 

Wildfire Cheer Summer Showcase 2018

On Thursday 5th July, all 7 of our competitive teams performed their routines at our showcase for one last time. All 4 of our recreational classes also performed the routines they had been working on and cheerleaders from all teams put on a tumbling display. The showcase was a huge success and everyone performed brilliantly. We couldn’t have asked for a better end for our season.

We are so grateful to all of the parents who helped out with stalls, moving chairs, photos and tickets! And a big thank you to all of the local businesses who donated to our raffle. We managed to raise over £1000 all together which is amazing – this is enough to buy a whole new 12m mat with some to spare for more tumbling equipment. Thank you to everyone who attended and supported our club!

Our First Ever Competition

On Saturday 4th March 2017 our new competitive teams travelled to Stoke-on-Trent to compete at ICE Big Chill, our first ever cheerleading competition.

First up was our younger team, Wildfire Glimmer. This year Glimmer is a small team of 9 girls aged between 7 and 9 years and they competed in the Mini (under 9) Level 0 division. There were a few nerves just before going onto the mat, but Glimmer pulled off what was most definitely the best performance of their routine they had ever done. Great synchronisation, technique and no major mistakes!

Soon after cheering on their younger counterparts, it was the turn of Wildfire Blaze. This team is made up of 12 girls and 1 boy aged between 10 and 13 years. Blaze was competing in the challenging Junior (under 15) Level 1 division, even though most of the athletes are actually Youth age (under 12). We could not have been any prouder of the routine Blaze put out at their first ever competition. It was clean, exciting and there were also no stunt or tumbling falls.


Every single member of our competitive programme tried their absolute best at competition and performed beautifully, and we couldn’t have asked for any more. However … the awards were still to come (after some celebration and dancing of course!)

Blaze received a very respectable 6th place out of 11 teams, many of which were older and more experienced than them. Lots of complex stunting is allowed in Level 1 and on this occasion we did not have the difficulty to score in the top 3. Many people commented however on our good technique and we can’t wait for Blaze to safely progress their difficulty for future competitions. Awesome job girls and boy!

Then the awards were called out for Glimmer. There were 5 teams in our division. 3rd was read out – not us. 2nd was read out – not us. By this point our hearts were beating very loudly …. and in 1st place, Wildfire Glimmer! We couldn’t believe it, what a moment! We all went to receive our 1st place trophy and take some pictures. We hardly noticed when the ICE judges started to announce who had won the Grand Champions award. Would you believe it? Wildfire Glimmer! This means that Glimmer received the highest score out of all 67 cheerleading teams competing that day across all levels and age groups. This means that their routine was very difficult within Level 0 and they performed it with very high levels of technique and perfection. Well done girls!

Our next competition will be on 21st May in Leicester. Both teams are now working really hard to up their game for this competition, we can’t wait!

For anyone interested in our competitive teams, please do Contact Us as we will be taking new members in September. There will be places available for children aged 7 to 14. If you have a younger child, or are and older teenager, please still get in touch as we would like to start a Tiny prep team and a Senior team and will do this as soon as we have the sufficient interest.
