Cheer and Stunt



Sign up to our Mailing List to find out more information about our group!



The University of Leicester Panthers are one of the largest and most successful clubs on campus, with over 100 members and numerous Grand and National Champion Titles. We have 7 teams which include Hip Hop, Pom, stunt, full routine and a performance and development  team; this means we can offer places to everyone regardless of ability (in fact, most of our members start with no previous cheerleading experience!).

Cheerleading has been growing rapidly in popularity in the UK over the past few years, and as a club we are so excited to be able to offer everyone the chance to fall in love with the sport at University. When you join the Panthers you are joining an inclusive and supportive family; we will support you to grow in all aspects of your life, whether that be academically, personally or as an athlete. We will equip you with transferable skills for after you graduate and beyond, and you will grow in confidence. 

Our competitive teams attend national competitions during the year, and our performance team perform at local events and at varsity. We also show our support to our fellow Team Leicester sports clubs by attending their BUCS matches. Finally, at the end of the year we host the annual Showcase where we perform our perfected routines to our friends and families. Our social calendar is very vibrant and we hold a variety of events throughout the year such as: Christmas Dinner, Alumni Ball, Tour, Cheer Awards, Cheer Week and MORE!
