We are the University of Sheffield Stunt Cheerleading Club known as the Sheffield Sabrecats and we’re currently National Champions!


We have over 100 members, both male and female and we’re growing in size every year. We cater for all abilities, with experience ranging from members who’ve competed at the World Championships to those who try cheerleading for the very first time at university. No experience is necessary, although we are always looking for people with a background in cheer, gymnastics or dance to join us and get involved!

A squad is a team and each squad is made up of 20-30 members and train between 1 to 3 times a week. Time and location vary based on squad. We currently have 5 squads:


Black Squad
Gold Squad
Silver Squad
Group Stunt
Blue Squad
Platinum squad


Each squad has their own training times, however training times may change leading up to competitions. Everyone is required to tryout in order to be placed in a squad but everyone gets a place on a squad! Tryouts are held in early October following training sessions held by the coaches for all the Sabrecats.

All Sabrecats, no matter what squad, can take part in community and charity events and are all encouraged to attend the weekly socials – so be sure to get involved!
