2016/2017 Was our first season with an official special needs team. The team has proved to be a huge success!
Allstars train for one hour a week Tuesdays 4:30-5:30pm. The class covers a lot of the same techniques as our beginner classes and follows safety through progressions. Miki Garratt coaches the team. Miki has had many years experience working with special needs as a teaching assistant in the SEN department at Stantonbury Campus. We also have a number of volunteers from the youth, junior and senior teams who attend the session to offer their time and support to the athletes.
The team performed at our squad showcase in January which for many of them was a new and daunting experience. They loved every minute and wanted to do more. Allstars competed at their first ever competition at the Future Cheer Nationals in Bournemouth on the 8th of July 2017. We are very proud of them. They put on an amazing performance and came away with a national champions title and Trophy.
