Momentum RISE and Team England Adaptive Abilities (ParaCheer)
We are absolutely thrilled to let you know that Momentum RISE have been chosen as the Allstar team that will represent England in the Adaptive Abilities division at the ICU World Championships!
We are so thankful to SportCheer England for entrusting us with this opportunity, and are so proud of our whole program - the athletes, the families, and the coaches who have embraced Momentum's ongoing journey to becoming an inclusive and adaptive program.
We can't wait to share all of that on the Worlds stage!
Our amazing sponsors this season!
What is Adaptive Abilities?
Adaptive Abilities (formerly ParaCheer) is an inclusive cheerleading division for athletes with and without sensory and/or physical disabilities. Athletes work together to create adaptations, enabling all team members to perform skills and routines in new and innovative ways. Our team, Momentum RISE, have been training and competing since 2017!
Adaptive Abilities is a separate division to existing SEN cheerleading divisions, and while athletes with learning disabilities are not excluded from AA divisions, all athletes must be able to learn and memorise a full, complex cheerleading routine.
Accessibility of The Old Church
As the name suggests, we train in an old church building. Due to its age and status as a listed building, the gym currently has some accessibility issues. We’re working with ParaCheer International to improve this but, in the meantime, anyone with a disability that affects their mobility may require help entering the building. Any athletes who may require assistance with stairs, please call ahead to chat to us so that we can try to find a way to fully meet your needs.
