My uni has been running cheer for the last 2/3 years without a qualified coach. Is this legal? I'm also concerned that they've never asked anyone to disclose prior injuries/lhealth problems. We also don't have a qualified first aider, although there are a few nurses on the team.

Assuming you havent entered any competitions in that time either as that would not be possible without a qualified coach

You should also make it known to the university - you should have someone in charge of sports/activities. Cheerleading needs a coach... Even if it is a few of the students who have done a training course

I was captain of a uni cheer team years ago and I actually write into the constitution that every captain in the future had to get qualified paid for by the club funds. Might be worth looking at.

Talk to your sports union. If you are BUCS they will absolutely help you with qualifications. When I was at uni (admitedly a decade ago) I was given a grant for myself and 2 others to get qualified.

Saves a lot of hassle for everyone for insurance and Injuries. No university wants to deal with the risk of new members being Coached by unqualified people. Lawsuit waiting to happen.

How do you know all this? Speak to the captain/person who runs the sessions to check it’s true, and if so raise to the uni and Sport Cheer England. I’ve worked with a uni that was fairly lax, but they still first aid trained club committee members as a minimum and the club risk assessment required we always had one qualified coach at training.

Absolutely not legal or sensible! In my uni team it is part of the SU budget (cheer not a BUCS sport) to send people on training courses if needed. We weren’t allowed to stunt if a qualified coach (which includes first aid) was not in the room. And member should be disclosing any relevant health or injury information when enrolling on the team. If I were you, I’d consider speaking to your team captain and raising this as a concern

Your SU should be informed of this, as it is a sport their insurance may be invalid if it is being done without the supervision of an appropriately qualified person.

Stars have put videos on their insta stories today of them stunting after SCE have said it’s definitely not allowed...

That's what I thought, going to make for a very interesting season, that's if we get to compete at all. Even by next year I cant see large venues being allowed to open. Kids possibly only having a few months if that to work on stunts that they haven't done for the beat part of a year.
Without the income from spectator tickets, merch, plus surely they cant expect the same payment for routines. How are EPs going to survive this?

@post39 Only non contact and socially distanced dancing is allowed until the distancing rules change. So no lifts etc.

So with new restrictions coming into place how are the courses such as BGU continuing to run?
Will demo athletes be stunting? The last course I went on the demo team stunted to show us grips etc.
Surely this any happen now as contact is not allowed?

Interested to know if it’s still worth booking coaches onto a course they won’t get full benefit from..

Are we better just doing online qualifications instead?
