WHO ARE WE?
The University of Melbourne Cheerleading Club is one of the university's newest sports affiliated teams. As a representative of Melbourne University, our Cheerleading Club is one of Victoria's premier squads. We pride ourselves in balancing academia, social responsibilities and training.
The Melbourne University Cheerleading Club began in 2012 with only 24 members. In our first year as a MU Cheerleading Club, we competed in both cheer and pom. We represented the University of Melbourne at the Southern University Games and a selection of cheerleading competitions, which included a 1st place victory at the AASCF State Championships and 3rd place at the AASCF National Championships in Sydney.
In 2013, our numbers grew to over 100 members amongst three cheer teams and one pom team. In 2013, our level 3/4 cheer team came away with 1st place at both Winterfest and State competitions, and 2nd place at Nationals.
In 2014, Melbourne University Cheerleading put three cheer teams and two pom teams onto the floor. By this time we had lost track of how many medals, banners and trophies we had won.
2015 was an amazing year of growth for our club. Our All Girl Level 1/2 team took out 1st place at both AASCF Winterfest and Nationals! We we're so proud to feature two competitive cheerleading teams, two pom teams and a hip-hop team.
However, 2016 and 2017 were special years for the club. 2016 saw our all star pom team, MU Pearl, receive a bid to AACSF Pinnacle, a bid only event where only the best of the best get to compete, where they placed 2nd in their division, an incredible achievement. In 2017, our all star pom team, MU Heat, not only received 1st place and Pom grand Champions at DCE's Asia Pacific Grand Internationals, they also received an At Large bid to compete at the Dance Worlds in Orlando, Florida in 2018!
2018 is going to be an incredible year, with the club being represented in cheer, pom, lyrical, jazz and hip hop. We would love for you to join our family in 2018!
