The Sirens team use a combination of cheer, dance, jumps, gymnastics/tumbling and stunting to create a routine and compete against other teams from all over the country at national competitions. It is hard work, but with determination and team work we can make this the best year for the Sirens yet!
The squad is very hardworking and dedicated, which is shown by our amazing previous accomplishments:
1st place at the North East Classic competition 2013
1st and 5th place at the Future Cheer University Nationals 2014
2nd place at the Future Cheer University Nationals 2015
4th Place Future Cheer University Nationals 2016
3rd Place Future Cheer University Nationals 2017
3rd Place Legacy Cheer and Dance 2017
4th Place Future Cheer University Nationals 2017
4th Place Future Cheer University Nationals 2018
We train twice a week on Monday evenings (8:30pm-10pm) and Thursday evenings (8:30-10pm).
We are fortunate enough to be able to train at Chelmsford Gymnastics Club which enables us to practice tumbles and gymnastic elements of a routine in the best environment.

This year we plan to have a more social side to cheer, and pairing with the other asports teams to arrange monthly socials. we have a variety of social acitivires planned to suit everyone's taste.
"Cheering alongside a team who are also your friends is one of the greatest feelings. Knowing that you have all worked hard as a team to support each other not only at cheer but also with univerisity life is so rewarding. Over the past year cheer has taught we so much about myself and I cannot wait for the next season of cheer to start!" -Chloe, ARU Siren 2017/18.
This year as a society we are supporting that charity MIND. As mental health is a growing problem in the UK we feel that being able to support a charity that a lot of young people benefit from key. Throughout the year we aim to raise as much money as possible through a range of events such as; quiz nights, sponsored walks/cycles and cake sales.

In previous years we achieved the title of a GREEN SUSTANABLE SOCIETY! In order to accomplish this we had to car share where possible to training and competitions and have a green attitude towards our fundraisers including using social media to promote our work rather than paper flyers and Fairtrade products as snacks in our committee meetings! We are working hard to achieve this same status with our new 2018-2019 team again!!!
We hope that you will find a passion in Cheerleading and continue the ARU Siren Legacy!
