The Liverpool Foxes Cheerleading and Dance Squad is a collective of 6 teams, 5 competitive and 1 non-competitive, offering a wide variety of styles and disciples to suit all abilities. Liverpool Foxes prides itself on being a friendly and accommodating club that is open to all students regardless of experience.
If you have never been to a cheerleading/dance competition before or seen our sport in action, we have just 2-3 minutes to perform a routine in front of a panel of judges and other university squads across the UK. The routines consist of jumps, dance, tumbling and, for cheer routines, stunts. We practice and perfect the routines throughout the year, improving fitness, flexibility, strength, and team spirit.
Cheerleading is an intense, exciting sport that requires strength, stamina, enthusiasm and most importantly commitment. The Foxes Cheer teams have enjoyed outstanding success over the years. In 2018 our Level 1 team (Sapphire) won 1st place at Future Cheer University Nationals and furthered their success by placing 2nd at ICC University Nationals. Our Level 2 team (Diamond) also had success at ICC University Nationals coming in 2nd place.
Our non-competitive match-day team (Topaz) has been a new but successful venture for the Foxes. The team of 40-50 girls trains once a week, in preparation to cheer on our American Football Team ‘The Raptors’ at their Sunday matches. This team has proven vital to the Raptors, their team winning both Varsity and Christie Cup as well as making it to the playoffs of their League with the support of Topaz.
Foxes are not only about the cheer; we have four coaches dedicated to our jazz, pom-dance and hip-hop teams, who are all passionate competitors at a national level too.
These teams too have enjoyed tremendous success with Jazz achieving 1st place at ICC University Nationals, a continuation of their success at BCA University Nationals where they gained the title of National Champion three years running (2014, 2015 and 2016). Our Hip Hop team achieved 6th place at the 2018 ICC University Nationals and our Pom team brought home 1st place at the Christie Cup against Manchester and Leeds Universities.
We pride ourselves not only on our dedication to the sport and impressive results, but also the club’s fantastic social side. With an international tour at Easter, large Christmas and summer events and a packed social calendar, you can be sure to make some great friends and memories with us!
We hope that you’ll consider joining Foxes as a sporting option at Liverpool; it will take commitment and hard work, but we can guarantee you’ll have a fantastic time and make friends for life.
