West Halifax Cheerleading was formed in 2008 with a small youth team practicing at Prospect Road Elementary School. Now beginning our 7th season, we've grown to include over 200 athletes on various teams ranging from tiny to open.
WHC's head coaches are credentialled and qualified with more than 100 years experience between them. We have awesome cheer moms who help our athletes every step of the way through fundraising, uniform sizing, and paperwork. We practice on a spring floor, and we also have amazing tumbling coachesto help hone those difficult skills. We have a 30 foot inflatable tumbling strip to assist in the learning process, and many helpful assistant coaches with years of cheering experience.
At WHC we are all about family. The parents and families of our athletes are encouraged to get involved in our club, as volunteers for our competition (Cheer Blast Championships), or as Team Moms, or in any other capacity that they are able. We believe in positive reinforcement, expect dedication and discipline, but above all, insist on the enjoyment of the sport. Cheerleading is so diverse, there is a place for everyone, of all sizes and ability levels. We believe in cultivating the whole athlete through the sport of cheerleading focusing on individual and team skill improvement.
WHC's Training Facility (THE ORANGE DOME) is located at 115 Chain Lake Drive, Halifax (Behind the LED Road Lighting Building)
At WHC, we'll find a team that fits you. Our competitive program starts with our minis (ages 6-8/9) and goes all the way up to our open team. Competitive teams practice at least twice per week and compete between 6-8 times per year. Not sure if competitive cheerleading is right for you? We will also be expanding our recreational "tiny" team by introducing all-star prep and recreational cheerleading for tiny, mini, youth and junior aged athletes. These teams are less pressure, cost less, and only practice once per week. They will still work on all the elements of cheerleading like their competitive counterparts, but will showcase their routine in just a few competitions per year.
