Year 8 pupil, Ellie N, has been selected to represent Ireland alongside her Belfast Giants’ Cheerleading Squad at the European Cheerleading Championships in the Netherlands at the end of June.
Ellie described her experience with the squad: “There are four different groups of girls who are aged 6 to 18. We attend all of the home matches, cheering on the ice hockey team.
The Belfast Giant Cheerleaders train one day a week with coach Tameron Drake in preparation to cheer the team on! We also compete in two competitions per year. There is the heat to qualify for the European competition.
My favourite part of being a Belfast Giant Cheerleader is being in a team with amazing girls. Then are the opportunities and amazing memories. I am really looking forward to competing in Holland.”
We wish Ellie well!
