Club overview

The Macquarie University Cheerleading Club was formed in 2004. All teams are highly competitive in their divisions and compete at a number of events across the country. 

Positions in our elite teams are highly sought after and require a high level of commitment. Previous cheerleading or gymnastics experience is desired, but not essential, and we welcome beginners. All club members must be at least 17 years of age.
