Team Apollo from Aylesbury selected for The Summit ‘All Star World Championships’
Team Apollo from Aylesbury Cheerleading Academy, who after a fantastic season of competition have been awarded a bid to compete at The Summit ‘All Star World Championships’ in Florida in April 2023. Hosted by Varsity, this competition is the pinnacle of competition for junior and senior teams across the United States and the world. To be given the opportunity to compete at this level is a remarkable achievement for the team, whose athletes are all under 17 years of age.
Cheerleading is one of the fastest growing sports in the country, it is a team sport that is energetic, athletic and includes stunts and tumbling. Forget pompoms – it’s more like synchronized gymnastics! Cheerleading recently gained full Olympic status and could make its Games debut as soon as Paris 2024.
This year four girls from Aylesbury Cheerleading Academy have been selected to represent England at the World Cheerleading Championships in Florida. They took home the gold in the “Youth All Girl Median Team” division beating teams from around the world. The club that is now getting an offer with the Apollo team has finished the season, ACA is certainly a club that is going to the place!
Each of the 19 athletes work extremely hard and dedicate themselves to training multiple times a week to reach these high standards, allowing them to compete against the best teams in the world. Being part of a team requires 100% commitment, effort, attitude and discipline at all times.
As with all competitive sports, competing at this level has a financial cost. Cheerleading is currently entirely self-funded and as such we are looking to raise funds from across our community to help with travel and other costs, which will total over £1500 per athlete. They really hope you can support their athletes by offering a donation, in any way you can. The athletes will be extremely grateful for any donation offered to help fund this amazing event.
Aylesbury Cheerleading Academy is about to enter its 9th season and has gone from strength to strength with dedicated and passionate coaches. Even during the recent pandemic, virtual classes and training were held to maintain the athletes’ fitness levels, but also to keep them together as part of the team, which was extremely important.
The side have set up a fundraising page to try and raise the 30,000 they need to travel to compete.
