Welcome to the University of the West or England Comets Cheerleading Squad. As we are one of the largest clubs, we consist of two teams; our Comptetion squad represent the university at national competitions, competing against other universities and all star teams, and our Performance squad, who support and attend the UWE Bullets American Football and UWE Jets Basketball games throughout the year! 


Last season our competition squad had huge success! Our level 3 all girl team placed 1st at the BCA competition in Exeter, while our level 2 co-ed team placed 1st at the Legacy competition in Telford. Meanwhile, our Performance squad had a fantastic year too! They put on amazing performances at Varsity and successfully perform routines while cheering on for the UWE Bullets!


We are also one of the most successful fundraising club at UWE and we raise thousands of pounds every year! Not only do we work extremely hard to achieve this, we also have a lot of fun too, from hosting our own themed club nights each term, to quizzes and team meals, you wouldn't want to miss out!


As an exciting, athletic and determined cheerleading squad, we welcome new members of any age, sex and ability  into one of the largest and most successful universtiy squads.  Even if you dont have any experience of cheerleading our fantastic coaches will be there to help. Our routines consist of tumbling, dance, jumps, stunting and of course, cheers! Whether you are highly experienced in these skills, or new to cheerleading, we would love for you to get involved, so please feel free to join our pages and get in touch to find out more information.
