We are thrilled that cheerleading will be represented at the Pyeongchang Olympic games as part of the pageantry and ceremony. At present, Team Canada has not been contacted by Cheer Canada to partake in this event. We stand ready to represent our nation with athletes from coast to coast of the highest calibre if asked.

The CCU is now accepting nominations for the 2018 Team Canada Premier All Girl and Coed team coaches. All interested and qualified coaches are encouraged to apply.
Once again, Canada is hoping to field two Junior teams for the ICU World Junior Championships in 2018. Information regarding team selection is now posted.
The CCU is thrilled to announce that we have selected PCT Vengeance and the CheerSport Star Spotted Sharks as the 2017 All Girl and Coed Junior National teams respectively.
We were very pleased to have had 12 submissions from 6 Provinces — BC, AB, ON, QC, NS & NB.
In order to expedite an already rushed process, the judges were asked to rank their top choices in both All-Girl and Co-ed Divisions. They were asked to judge the teams based upon their skill level and technique without paying too much attention to any routine composition or choreography components. We also asked judges to consider the strength of tumbling technique to gauge the transition to an un-sprung competition surface, and also to be mindful of the number of athletes who would need to be replaced due to being age ineligible. With all of these things in mind, the selection committee was asked to submit their top two teams in each of the All-Girl and Co-ed divisions.
PCT Vengeance received 5 first place ordinals and 2 seconds. CheerSport Star Spotted Sharks also received 5 first place ordinals and 1 second.
We’d like to thank Liz Gigante (BC), Anna Batchelor (AB), Thomas Rath (SK), Tara Savoie (ON), Sandra Han (ON), Melissa Moisan (QC) and Stephen Mills (NS) for their thoughtful input. And to Kenny Feeny for his guidance.
We are certain that both teams will represent Canada at the ICU World Championships incredibly well.
Congratulations PCT and CheerSport we can’t wait to see you wear the red and white.
