The ‘British Cheerleading Qualification’ has been specially designed by the BCA to help new coaches and younger coaches gain a full understanding of how to run a programme, from setting up to planning sessions and also how to teach the correct techniques across stunting, tumbling and Jumps at Level 1.
This 2 day course is very in depth and will provide you with everything you need to start up and run successful Cheerleading sessions for competitive All Star programs, recreational classes and scholastic classes.
With useful information provided on the Do’s, Don’ts and ‘Must Haves’ for good coaching you will learn how to not only teach correct techniques including drills and spotting techniques but also tips and advice on how to be a great coach and leader.
The course comprises both theory learning, hands on practical learning with a full demo group on hand to show both incorrect and correct techniques and an online test at the end of the second day. Participants will also be required to interact with each other and demonstrate an understanding of the teaching/coaching techniques used and demonstrate an ability and understanding of spotting techniques for tumbling.
Upon passing coaches receive ongoing support via an online portal on the BCA website. Coaches will be provided with a log in where they can then recap on videos used during the course and access templates of useful documents covered within the course material.
The minimum age to take Level 1 is 14.
This course is perfect for:
- School Teachers
- New Allstar cheer coaches
- Junior Coaches
- Current experienced coaches who wish to refresh their knowledge
- New coaches wishing to start their own programmes/gyms
This new course costs just £150 per person.
Each attendee will also receive a certificate and exclusive BCQ pin badge on completion of the course.
