University of Birmingham Cheerleading club, known as the Birmingham Pussycats, is a squad of approximately 65 students of all genders. The club has 6 competing squads: All Girl Level 3, Group Stunt Level 2, Hip Hop, Jazz, Pom and Coed Group Stunt level 3. The later team was introduced last year. The club also has a performance squad who regularly perform at sporting events and open days around university campus.
The Birmingham Pussycats perform at the half-time show at the UK’s premier Varsity American Football Game, ‘xpLosION!’ in front of 3000+ spectators. This event is definitely a highlight of the university calendar that both participating and spectating students look forward to! Being a part of UoB cheer is a brilliant way to throw yourself into university life, to keep fit and learn a new set of unique skills!
We hope to see you in September ready for the 2020/20201 season!
How to get involved

Please note that on top of the club fee there is a £16 fee that covers personal accident insurance when training or competing for the University, access to free cross-training sessions such as circuits and yoga, as well as a contribution to the costs of affiliation to various national governing bodies. This fee is only payable once so if you did decide to join a second club then you would not need to pay a second fee.
