Leeds Celtics are one of the University of Leeds’ most accomplished sports clubs that boasts over 10 years of award-winning seasons. Cheerleading is one of the fastest growing sports in the UK and we’re proud to have already made our mark as the most successful University cheerleading programme in the country.


Cheerleading is a combination of stunting, tumbling, jumps and dance which enables our athletes to develop their strength, flexibility and overall fitness, we require that our members are hardworking and committed.


Our programme consists of 5 different teams that cater to all ability levels. We have a match team which supports the University of Leeds Basketball and American Football teams. Match team is ideal for those who are just starting out with cheerleading, or those who would prefer a non-competitive team.

Match Team

Our competitive teams include 1 Pom team and 3 competitive Co-Ed and All-Girl Cheer teams that train weekly.

Pom incorporates various forms of dance allowing our BCU trained University of Leeds Student Coaches to choreograph a routine full of tumbling, kicklines and formation changes.

Pom Team

 The Cheer teams combine their difficult stunting skills with dance and impressive tumbling to produce action-packed routines. Sessions are ran by the creative and highly experienced coaches at Aviator Allstars who are also Celtic and University of Leeds Alumni.

Level 1 All Girl 


Level 2 All Girl


Co-Ed Level 3/4


Last year was one of our most successful seasons with our Level 1 team placing 1st at Future Cheer University Nationals. Pom had a dramatic improvement and went from 9th place in their first competition of the season to an impressive 2nd place for the final two competitions. Level 3 were crowned National University Champions at Legacy Dream Extreme and finally a Leeds Celtics clean sweep with all our cheer teams placing 1st at Circus Spectacular, including Grand Champions for our level 3 team.
