SABRECATS PLATINUM

Category : 2019/2020

We are thrilled to be able to announce our brand new Level 4 Co-Ed Team, Platinum!

This team is being headed up by Aron (our current group stunt coach) and Estelle (Black squad member) and will compete at ICC Nottingham along with our other squads. This is such an exciting opportunity for our most talented athletes to push themselves further!

This team will be completely funded by fundraising efforts from the club towards training venues and competition entry so any donations towards this team would be very much appreciated. This money will go directly towards making participation cheaper for our members. Please donate to our Just Giving page to support us on this exciting new development.

We can’t wait to see this team’s debut this season so watch this space!


‘Joint in Action’ charity work

Category : 2019/2020 , Charity

On Sunday 13th October, we got the chance to part in a charity event called ‘Joint in Action’ in support of the Rheumatology department of the Children’s hospital. Together our charity sec Melissa, with our amazing group of volunteers, Nathan, Megan and Hannah all worked together to teach children how to cheer! It was a really successful day, and all the children enjoyed it and hopefully some will go on to cheer in future! We had some amazing feedback and we hope to support them in other similar events.


CoppaFeel! charity social

Category : 2019/2020 , Charity

To hit the ground running with charity work for our 2019/2020 season, we started off the year with a charity social to raise awareness and funds for CoppaFeel! in support of Breast cancer awareness month.

The night was super successful and we raised a total of £125.96! All of our Sabrecats worked hard throughout the night raising money on West Street and Bar One, selling glitter, fake tattoos and generally gathering support. A special thank you to our social secs Hannah and Rachel and for our charity sec Mel for their work for the social! If you are interested in donating to this charity then please donate via the link below, and remember: always check your pecks and boobs!


Post-tryouts run down!

After a super successful two weeks of Give It A Gos and taster sessions we held our team tryouts on Saturday 12th October. We had 117 people (new and old members) trying out for our four squads!

As a club, we pride ourselves on inclusivity and as such everyone gets a place on our teams. For this season we have 22 members on Black; 27 members on Gold; 22 members on Silver and 48 members on Blue so we’re looking forwards to a big and successful year for the club!

Tryouts themselves ran smoothly and we were really impressed with all the talent and potential we saw in all of our athletes! During our tryouts we were also fortunate enough to be able to do a takeover on the @ukunicheer Instagram account which was an amazing way to showcase our club to a wider audience! We’re also really excited to continue this collaboration with such a great Instagram account!

Following our tryouts, we partied the night away at our post-tryouts Poptarts social! Where we partied the night away in celebration with our old Sabrecats and our new freshers.

We also held our first official social on Wednesday with the theme ‘Terrible Trousers’. Each team stated off at their coaches houses where they played games and bonded before heading off to Roar to reunite with the whole squad. Our social secs Hannah and Rachel did an amazing job at organising this social and we can’t wait for many more in the upcoming season!
