We're excited to offer a range of levels and divisions to suit our diverse athlete pool. It's our policy that an athlete is to try-out for the programme (not a specific team) - the Royals coaching staff will place athletes on a team that best suits the athlete. Please trust this process! 

Age Grids:


Royals follow the IASF/SportCheerEngland guidelines on age groups and skill levels. We will continue to adhere to these guidelines to ensure the best experience for all athletes. Age for the season is determined by the athlete’s age AS OF 31st AUGUST 2023. (E.g If an athlete is 14 as of 31 August 2023, but turns 15 on 1 September 2023, their age for the season is still 14 and they’re eligible for Junior age category).


All teams are open to all genders.


Training Schedule:

  • Training days and schedule will be released following tryouts and team placements

  • You may also be invited to or request to cross over and be on two cheer teams.

Prep Vs AllStar Division


What's the difference between a Prep team and a AllStar team? Well, in practice there isn't a lot at Royals. All teams have the same access to experienced coaches and train at our state of the art facility in Cobham.
