Schools Program Mission Statement

Splitlift

Aviator Allstars are proud to be forming partnerships with numerous local schools in the Leeds area.

Our mission is to make "real" cheerleading accessible to as many young people as possible, by giving them top quality coaching and a great all-round experience. Our program aspires to teach growing young adults how to work together as a team. We are passionate about developing our local talent and helping young people achieve new goals in a fun and safe environment.

We believe our program serves a higher purpose; Cheerleading can be an important piece in developing the character of the people who participate in it. The lessons learned in competitive cheerleading can make its participants winners for life.

Finding Your Wings - Schools Cheerleading Competition

March, 2009
Finding Your Wings

The Schools Competition, hosted by Aviator Allstars took place on Thursday the 26th of March 2009 at the University of Leeds. The aim of the event was to showcase the progress that the school children had made throughout their cheerleading sessions with Aviator Allstars. The work the Aviators do in schools is to help promote a healthy lifestyle and encourage more young people to participate in sport. The competition offered the opportunity and experience for many school children who often wouldn't have the chance, to represent their school, and work towards a common goal with their team mates. With the support of Education Leeds, the Schools Sport Partnerships and Leeds City Council Community Sports Officers and Open XS Extended Services the event was a huge success.

The Leeds Celtic University Cheerleaders spent an afternoon with the children of St Paul's Junior School in Otley, Leeds. The children enjoyed watching the stunting demonstration and after learning some skills, the Celtics taught the children a dance routine to 'Rocking' Robin'.

The children entertained and impressed the Celtics by singing, dancing and acting in the school's 'Well-being' week assembly. The Leeds University cheerleaders were very honoured to close the assembly with their stunt routine and particularly enjoyed performing the dance they taught with the children.

Sophie Ibbotson, Celtic Cheerleader enthused, "We all had such a lovely afternoon. The children were all so well behaved and enthusiastic, they were a joy to teach. We all would love to have the opportunity to volunteer in schools again."
