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!
How to get involved
To discover more and get involved, come and meet current club members at Sport & Fitness Fair on Tuesday 21 September in the Sport & Fitness Arena from 10am-5pm. This is the best place to find about trials and taster sessions. You will be asked to register your interest using the ‘Register Interest’ form above, and then you will receive confirmation of the dates of trials and taster sessions in a follow up email. If you would prefer, you can also fill in the form before Sport & Fitness Fair, but you will not receive any further information until the evening of Tuesday 21 September.
If you have any questions for the club before Sport & Fitness Fair, please contact the club directly via the red contact us button or their social media pages.
Following trials and taster sessions, if you would like to join the club you must purchase a membership online. To purchase a membership, please click the yellow join us button.
Please note, on top of the club membership 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.
