RECREATIONAL CLASSES 2021-22
Our recreational teams are open to new members, including beginners, all season - and there is no need to attend team trials. Giving our recreational teams a go is free - your first session you won't pay for. For more details please read below.
Recreational cheer offers a more flexible approach where attendance is not compulsory and the pace of learning can be fully adjusted to the individual. We have places for those who are new to cheer aged 4 to adults with 10+ years experience and are proud that some of our best athletes train with our recreational teams.
As a squad we hope to welcome lots of new members, introduce new friendships and spread the love of cheer. Whether your goal is to get into the sport, train for fun, develop skills for a comp team or improve your tumbling for your university team, we have a space for you.
How do I join a rec class?
You're able to book onto a trial class via our online booking system.
A taster session will be a chance for beginners or those new to Royals to see if they enjoy training with us. The sessions are free and tailored according to ability and experience. The day after your free taster, you will receive an email to follow up and see how the session went.
Should you wish to join Royals, we will outline the next steps required.
How much is recreational cheer?
All recreational cheer classes are £35 per month + the annual membership fee of £40.
Membership fee includes a free T-shirt, Bow, entrance to Summer Ball & Insurance.
What do I need to do before I attend?

SILVERMERE GYMNASTICS & CHEERLEADING
OUR NEW HOME
We're proud to announce that for the first time in Royals history we finally have a place to call home! From Sep 2021 we'll be joining forces with Silvermere Gymnastics Academy. Our joint gym is a brand new facility complete with sprung floor, tumble equipment, coach office and even a cafe! For the new season all Royals teams will train here. We're beyond excited to welcome you here for this very special new era for Royals AllStars.
New to Cheerleading?
First things first - it's time to ditch that stereotype! Cheerleading isn't necessarily what you think. Allstar cheerleading is an extremely inclusive sport, which involves serious teamwork, gymnastics, acrobatics and dance. It is accessible to all ages of children and adults - male and female. It helps to inspire young people to become involved in a cooperative high-energy activity.
Cheerleading is growing as a sport – our Team England squads came away from ICU Worlds in America with gold medals in 2017, 2018 and 2019, and as a country our cheerleading skills are improving and developing hugely.
Aside from it being an incredible sport that's growing - it is just SUCH FUN! Even if you or your child are a little unsure - come along to a session and give it a go. And, at Royals your first session is FREE - so... what's to lose?!
