The University of Lincoln Jets Cheerleading Squad is a group of athletes who work together as a team to represent the University of Lincoln. We compete regionally and nationally every year at a range of well-known Cheerleading competitions. Our routines are a mixture of stunting, dance, jumps and tumbling and are used to showcase our hard work throughout the year to please crowds of all types; ranging from fellow University of Lincoln students to National competition crowds.
We currently have a range of teams, including our Competition Squad (Red Arrows), our Performance and Varsity team (Touchdown), and our Social team (Turbulence). We have plans to add new and exciting things in the upcoming future.
Each year we showcase our skills and routines at events such as other University of Lincoln sports teams games and fixtures, our Annual Jets Showcase, national competitions, and our annual Varsity against the University of Hull.
Our Competitive and Performance membership includes two weekly training sessions with qualified Level 1&2 coaches and external coaches, gym hire, a Lincoln Jets training t-shirt, cheer bows (social bow and team bow), travel to events/competitions and more.
For those who are not interested in performing and competing but want to join Cheerleading as a bit of fun, we offer a social membership which includes non-compulsory training time with our qualified coaches, a Lincoln Jets training t-shirt, a Lincoln Jets social bow and involvement in our social events and weekly socials with the whole of the Lincoln Jets family!
As well as training weekly with your Jets family, we also get some downtime to spend with each other. We do so at our socials that are held weekly. Socials are the perfect way to meet the rest of the squad. Each social gives everyone a chance to bond and develop new friendships that can last a lifetime - and there are also lots of fun themes and chances to dress-up in all kinds of fancy dress! Not only do we offer social nights out, we also offer 'sober socials' for those who don't necessarily enjoy going out - these can include movie nights, library study sessions and late night walks around the cathedral and the city.
We train hard but play even harder!
Everyone is welcome to join Lincoln Jets. All of our teams are made up of people with various abilities and no prior experience in cheerleading is required. Therefore, joining Lincoln Jets is a great way to keep fit whilst also meeting new people, making new friends and having fun!
For more information about our Jets family, visit us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to see what we've been up to!
All of our clubs and societies are run by a committee.
A committee is a team of people that lead, organise and publicise a group within your Students’ Union.
It can be really rewarding as well as being a great way to gain experience and invaluable skills for your future career.
