About 120 cheerleaders aged from three to 50 took part in the North East event at the weekend and walked away with 11 first, nine second, six third and five fourth place trophies.

Sean Crossley, from Heroes, said it had been “an awesome weekend”.

“It was held from Friday to Monday in Newcastle and turned out to be one of the biggest to date held by the BCA,” he said.

“We are so proud of all our Heroes cheerleaders and dancers competing in cheer, tumble trios, stunts, jazz dance, hip hop and pom dance.

“We had a range of ages from our tiny ones right up to our mums. There was also amazing support from all the parents and friends.

“It was the first competition for some and they all worked so hard. It brings our total up to 484 trophies over the last six years of competing.”

Sean said it was the first time their group for older women – the Heroes Divas – had taken part in a competition.

“They came second in a competitive group,” he said.

“Our world cheerleaders – the Heroes Princesses – beat off the fiercest competition over three divisions taking home gold and a Worlds Bid for the Cheerleading Worlds 2015. They deserve it so much as they are all hard working, determined and committed.”
