Aviator F22 Raptors

Splitlift

The F-22 Raptors, the flagship team created by Aviator Allstars in 2008 are an advanced Level 6 team based Leeds who train every 3 - 4 weeks over a whole weekend.

Over the past 3 years the F-22 Raptors have been all over Europe and the United States competing and showcasing their skills. They have previously come back from Orlando, Florida where they obtained a bid to compete at the biggest cheerleading competition in the world in April 2011 at The Cheerleading Worlds.

Jakk Lowry, an F22 athlete said, "It was an amazing experience to see other teams from all over the world and has given us great inspiration to work hard as one, and work harder as a team."

We are dedicated to pushing boundaries to the next level, team building and having fun. Being a level 6 team means there is an age restriction at the youngest athlete being 17 years of age upwards.

We hold tryouts every summer around the July and August period, Starting with "Pre Tryouts" Which is to get an insight on how we work as a team and what type of skills we are looking for to make the F-22 Raptors the best we can possible be…

  • Tryouts

    Tryouts for the 2010-12 season are to be held on the 23-24th July 2011. Some comments from last year are below.

    "I am so excited about joining the F22 Raptors and I had a great weekend at tryouts. The best thing about the weekend had to be the atmosphere created by everyone there, it was so friendly and mutually supportive. I thought this was especially apparent whilst we were showing our running tumbling, everyone's tumble pass was applauded and you could tell that it was genuinely meant.

    I am so looking forward to the season ahead with Aviators, team-wise I am hoping that we will achieve a tightly-bonded and supportive team, a clean, tight and impressive routine, and hopefully a bit of silverware to show for our efforts! On a personal level, I am looking to improve my tumbling, as well as my basing/partner stunt skills and I'm looking forward to throwing some awesome level 6 baskets!

    "After already being an F22 Raptor for the first season, tryouts were definitely an enjoyable experience. Nerves were replaced with excitement and enthusiasm and as always people worked together and were supported throughout the whole experience. Personally I would like to focus on my flying skills especially baskets and the cool pyramids AV is famous for. This year I know the team will go from strength to strength, pushing our skills and each other whilst still having fun and enjoying what we do best."
