Competitions and Varsity
In 2017, DMU Saints completed the year with our level 2 Coed team winning their regional division along with the all-girl level 1 team winning their national division, keeping the grand champions title for the 3rd year running!
In addition to these achievements, De Montfort students attempt to defeat our sports rivals from the university across the city in the annual Leicester varsity matches. We are proud to say that The Saints won varsity three years in a row!
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. Placing our team as the highest score in England with the Coed Level 2 team finishing 4th. Before Covid hit in 2020, our 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 offer three teams including:
- Dance: Tuesdays 7:15 pm - 8:15 pm @ The Watershed, Studio 2
- Recreational Cheer: Thursdays 6:15 pm - 7:45 pm @ The Watershed, Main Hall
- Competitive Cheer: Fridays 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm & Sundays 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm.
During these sessions, we are guided by our coaches to develop strength, flexibility, improve tumbling, and practice stunts. These skills are integrated to form routines that are used in both competitions and varsity.
Our Dance team has multiple routines throughout the year performing on open days, competitions, and varsity game days.
Every Wednesday, the Saints come together for social. This includes a different theme for fancy drees each week, fun (optional) drinking games along with music and dancing.
Socials give us an opportunity to welcome new members and freshers as well as getting to know each other in a non-training environment! Wednesday night socials also give us a chance to meet people from other societies in DMU.
We start off our evening sat down by 8:00 pm in FatCats and end the night at the Student Union.
