Wolverine's charitable aim is to give opportunity to all suitable young athletes to participate and develop as a person through top flight competitive cheerleading irrespective of their financial situation. Set up as the regions only Cheer charity we aim to keep subscriptions as low as possible and support our members in times of financial hardship so the athletes can continue their cheer pathway and achieve their full potential.
Competitive Cheer is a very challenging team sport. Highly competitive, it requires bravery, ambition, dedication, discipline, teamwork, strength, fitness and agility. Similar to Rugby it has opportunities for all shapes and sizes and creates amazing camaraderie and loyalty across social, all religious and ethnic groups. These are all the skills and experiences that will stand our cheerleaders in good stead for the rest of their lives.
From our young athletes perspective it is also "cool" which makes it a desirable form of fitness and partly explains why Wolverines has grown by over 200% from 21 to 65 members in just 21 months. The organisation has expanded rapidly, it successfully competes with 5 teams at the top national competitions, frequently achieving a top 5 placing. Ultimately competitive success is what drives our athletes.
The big one "Operation Base"
In some respects Wolverines is in danger of becoming a victim of its own success. With rapidly increasing membership and continued competitive success our current shared training location is at it's maximum capacity. Apart from adding up to 25 athletes to existing teams we cannot grow further in our current location.
Due to our training facilities shared multipurpose roles we are not able to offer our athletes such benefits as permanent professional tumbling facilities and the all important full size competition sprung floor to train on.
All individual donations will be gratefully received. Please help if you can.
