The Edinburgh Napier Panthers Cheerleading Squad (ENU Cheer Squad) has been running since 2011 and we continue to grow year on year. We are proud to hold a number of awards under our belt such as the ‘Media Award’, ‘Best Fundraiser’ and ‘Most Improved Club’.
We are a competitive team that strives for high performance; we welcome all abilities from inexperienced to elite athletes, dancers, gymnasts with both experience or no experience of cheer at all. Through our dynamic, fun and crazy training sessions and socials we build on the panthers ethos of team spirit and family. Being part of the panthers cheerleading squad will enhance your student experience as it will allow you to create memories that will last a lifetime along with friendships.
ENU Cheer Squad also competes nationally against other teams all over the UK. We offer taster sessions so come along and give it a go. We are proud to have a team that will cater for your cheer needs, whether you want to compete or just cheer for fun, there is a team for you!
We build ourselves on our family ethos; within the panther family but also within Team Napier. We hold an annual fundraiser which is our take on 'So You Think You Can Dance' but 'So You Think You Can Cheer'. Not only will you be joining us but the whole of Team Napier too.

Development Team - this team is the most beginner team with a focus on developing technique and learning chants with our performance co-ordinator Kiri. This team is also for our students joining us for only 1 term of the year. This is a low-commitment team.
Level 1 Team - this team is one of our competition teams. This is for those looking to compete, are focused on learning technique and show dedication to improving throughout the year. This is a high-commitment team.
Level 2 Team - this team is our higher-level competition team. This is for those who have had past experience, or those who have experience in gymnastics or similar. However, it is not impossible for freshers to be on this team…show your dedication and we will see it! This is a high-commitment team.
Pom - the committee have made the difficult decision to pause the pom team for the 2021/2022 season as it has become increasingly difficult to manage restarting the club with already 4 training times in place and a change in our coaching positions. This team will hopefully resume in the future.
