hello, we are the essex blades cheerleading club


 

 

 

 

 

 

Sponsored by STA Travel Chelmsford

 

The Essex Blades Cheerleading Club (competing as the Essex Flames) are a Gold Standard Club that competes at National levels. Over the years we have been awarded many first place titles in both Stunt and Dance. As well as being a competitive squad, we also cheer for other Essex Blades teams. Aside from all the hard work put in each week, we have weekly themed socials which are lots of fun and help us to get to know each other better. Everyone involved within Essex Flames, however it may be, forms a strong and supportive family.

 

How many teams do we have?

Blaze (Level 1)
Inferno (Level 2)
Jazz/Lyrical (Dance)
Pom (Dance)
Ignite (Game Day Team)
