The Classes
There are a different variety of classes available with the
Stafford Jets. Some classes are restricted by age, but non are restricted
by ability. Please see the following pages for what we offer.
The class environment will be fun and friendly, but with an
emphasis on safe practice. The classes are a great opportunity to make
new friends, whilst learning new and exciting skills. Cheerleading is a
fantastic way to increase overall body strength and endurance. It doesn't
matter what shape, age, sex, size or background someone comes from,
cheerleading is suitable for all. At the end of the terms, members will be
putting on a performance and there will be presentations. Throughout

Practice Wear
Please ensure that yourself or your child is wearing appropriate exercise
clothing. Crew neck t-shirts are perfect. Tracksuit bottoms or shorts are
ideal. The kind of clothes your child wears for PE are suitable. For the
young adults, gym wear is fine. Absolutely NO jewellery is permitted or
watches. For safety reasons, hair should be either tied up in a pony or
away from the face. Please can you ensure that trainers are worn, I will
not teach anyone who is wearing plimsolls or any other inappropriate
footwear. If you can fold the shoe in half then it is not suitable (BCA
guidelines) As cheerleading is a very physical, high impact sport there is
a risk of injury, so by wearing appropriate clothing and footwear greatly
minimises this risk.
The cost of each hour session is:
Mini/Junior/Senior Cheer £3
Multiple Child Discounts are also available
