Who We Are

We are the Cheerleading Programme based in Crawley heading into our 5th competitive season as a programme. Previously known as 'West Sussex Athletic Wildcats' we have rebranded as simply 'Wildcats Athletic' to instigate a new era.


 When we launched in 2017 we chose to include ‘athletic’ as part of our name because we wanted to have a clear focus on fitness and athleticism. This is still very much at the heart of the way we coach and what we strive to achieve, so it seemed logical to make this part of our brand more prominent.


After what has been a difficult year across two interrupted seasons we felt that it was time to begin a new chapter. In doing so, we are introducing a new discipline as well making our offering of classes more accessible by launching a recreational development squad AND offering a new costs structure that opens up opportunity to the young people in the wider community.



All Star Cheerleading is a high energy, team-based, performance sport that is athletic,  artistic and acrobatic. It involves athletes competing a routine composed of tumbling, stunting, pyramids, dance and cheer segments. This season we have 2 Novice, 2 Prep & 3 All Star Teams who will compete at regional and national competitions across the country. Each member of the squad is trained in all aspects of the sport in order to       develop their skills to reach their maximum potential. Competitions are the focus point where all the teams’ hard work is put to the test as  routines are judged based on difficulty, execution, creativity, and showmanship.


Tumbling is a form of gymnastics movement whereby the athlete is required to jump, rotate and contort their bodies into specific shapes that create acrobatic sequences of key skills. It requires a lot of strength, spatial awareness and confidence; all of which will be worked on in every session. Once basic in this discipline are grasped, improvements can happen very quickly! It’s a challenging but very fun and rewarding process! Tumbling skills are also a key part of an all star cheerleading scoresheet and being an athlete will level appropriate tumbles is very valuable and an important part to being multi-skilled athlete.



We have very excited to be launching NEW dance classes that will offer a combination of Jazz & Contemporary disciplines underpinned by Ballet foundations. As an expressive art form, dance is an important part of All Star sports that builds stamina, speed, muscle, flexibility and poise whilst emphasizing musicality, uniformity, synchronization and athleticism - all of which will compliment our existing cheer & tumble training. We hope that by extending our offering as a programme that our members will have the opportunity to excel as all-round athletes. Whilst we will not be offering competitive dance teams at this time, we plan to have a competitive pom jazz team which athletes will be able to audition for in the near future.
