The Sharkettes are the official cheerleading squad of the University of Hull and have been around for over 20 years. We have competing squads; co-ed, all-girl and stunt and are now introducing a Pom-Dance Squad. We placed 4<sup>th</sup> at University Nationals this year, and 1 in Stunt at Circus Spectacular.
Cheerleading involves a combination of stunting, dancing and gymnastics, as well as cheering on other teams at half time during games. We cater to all abilities so don’t worry if you’ve never cheered before! Our squad gets everybody involved and works to everyone’s strengths, whilst having a really fun time. We train twice a week; during the sessions we train for comp, practise tumbling for all levels, try out new stunts and ideas, play games such as Chicken in a Hen House, as well as shared training sessions with other teams. We are a very close squad and include everyone. Socialling is a big part of our team. We social every Wednesday, as cheer and joint with other teams with themes and social skirts, and also go on Tour! If you don’t fancy being a sports member, you can join as a social member, be a part of the team and make friends. We have a very close relationship with the Sharks, regularly cheering at games, have socials together including Pub Golf and have Rose Bowl.
Come and join Sharkettes to be part of this great team, keep fit, have fun and make lifelong friends!
