ICE Athletics Cheer
Welcome to ICE Athletics!
If you are new to Allstar Cheerleading, then please read on to find out how you can be a part of our ICE family! If you are a returning member then welcome back, we cannot wait for another fun season with you!
We are a successful Cheerleading Club based in Kent with teams training in Gravesend & Tonbridge. Cheerleading is one of the fastest growing sports in the UK combining gymnastics, dance and acrobatic stunts.
ICE was founded in September 2013 and after six fantastic years as Intensity Cheer Extreme, we rebranded as ICE Athletics. New name, new logo, new teams, same coaches, same passion, same ethos! Although the season didn’t quite go to plan, due to Covid-19, we provided a thorough online training schedule for our athletes and we cannot wait to get back in the gym to see everyone in person!
We are proud to say that we were the first team from Kent to compete at the World Championships, most recently placing 6th in the World! We are fortunate enough to be returning in 2022 for our 5th year.
We are a big gym with a small gym attitude. We have been National Champions every year (except for Covid. 2020!) since 2014. However, for us, it is about more than winning trophies. Our mission is to promote physical fitness, confident athletes, teamwork & sportsmanship through the sport of Cheerleading. At ICE Athletics we believe that our athletes learn life lessons that take them much further than their cheerleading journey. Our athletes become great friends whilst learning new skills and important life lessons in a safe and fun environment.
We offer cheer & tumble classes which are perfect for athletes new to the sport or for families that do not want the commitment of one of our competition teams.
We want to introduce the wonderful sport of cheerleading to more families in our area! Read on to find out how you can try it out!
I have three daughters who have attended ICE Athletics for the last 5 years and they still love the sport as much today as they did when they first started.
I put this down to the amazing coaches who nurture, support, encourage and push the athlete to be the best they can be in a safe environment.
What stands out for me as a parent and is reassuring to hear and see, is the coaches belief in their athletes and the athletes trust in the coach, it's a bond that is unbreakable.
Another large part of their love for the programme, I put down to the amazing family spirit that the programme encourages from the youngest to the oldest, everyone supports each other in all aspects of cheer life.
Even despite the challenges of the last year and the trying times that we have been through, ICE have adapted and continued to support and inspire the athletes to be the best they can.
The spirit of ICE Athletics has remained strong!
