Leeds West Academy


Starlight Cheerleaders

The Starlight Cheerleaders have had a busy term, providing cheer for regional sports events and supporting the local community.

The team supported the Jane Tomlinson run in York, which raises fantastic sums for charities and good causes. The girls worked closely with the appeal, providing cheer at stations along the route. During Halloween the team also spent a busy weekend bag packing at the Tesco Superstore in Seacroft and provided numerous cake sales to fund the team’s ongoing projects.
Professional cheerleading coach Morton Bergue visited the Academy on 1st December to work with the Starlights on unique stunt routines. Ms Johnston, Starlights Coach, said: “Morton is over from the USA for a few weeks and we are delighted he is coming back to LWA to work with the team. Expect to see some even more extravagant moves in our routines for 2016!”
