Competitions and Varsity
In 2017 DMU Saints completed the year with Coed Level 2 winning their regional division and All girl Level 1 winning their national division making the Saints 'Grand' champions for the third year running!
In addition to these achievements, every year De Montfort students attempt to defeat our rivals from the sports teams at the university across the city in the annual Leicester varsity matches. We are proud to say that The Saints have won varsity three years in a row and hope to make it four years!
In the 18/19 season, the All Girl Level 1 team went for a clean sweep at BCA by winning National Champions, Grand Champions and the Nations Cup, having the highest score in England and the Coed Level 2 team placed 4th. In 2020, the DMU Saints competed at Future Cheer in Manchester where the Coed Level 3 team came in 2nd place and the All Girl Level 1 team came in 3rd place.
We currently hold training sessions twice a week on Thurdays: 8-10pm and Sundays: 6-9pm. During these sessions we are guided by our coaches to develop strength and flexibility, improve tumbling and practice stunts. These skills are integrated to form routines that are used at competitions and varsity.
DMU Saints hold weekly Wednesday socials involve a different fancy dress theme each week with lots of fun drinking games to strengthen the team bond and welcome freshers to the team in non-training hours. This year we will be beginning our evenings at Fat Cats bar (which is a short walk from Campus) followed by a trip to Marz Bar and ending the evening at the SU!
Every year the Saints are given the opportunity to go on a sports tour where we engage in friendly cheerleading with different universities by the beach! In the past we have been to Rimini in Italy, Salou in Spain, and Porec in Croatia. Days are spent at the pool and participating in our favourite sport while the evenings are for exploring the local nightlife in more fancy dress!
