Cheer Canada presents, The Team Canada Skills Clinics, a series of skill clinics hosted across the country, to act as both a way to develop high level cheerleading in Canada, as well as a fundraiser for premier athletes and the National Program.
Going forward, we are strongly encouraging athletes to register as a full stunt group!
Registering as a full group will guarantee your ability to fully participate in the clinic the way you want to. We will still allow for individual registration, but please know that we can not guarantee that you will be able to work on exactly what you’d like at camp, depending on who else registers.
These clinics will be hosted and led by both Premier Coaches, as well as premier athletes currently on the National Team Roster. The clinics will follow the following structure. Every clinic will have a minimum of one Team Canada Premier Coach, and 2 Premier athletes. The amount of athletes and coaches that attend to teach, is determined by the amount of registrants. The day will include hands-on skill instruction, as well as a coaches session and an athlete session at the end of the training portion.
The hands-on part of the camp is for athletes, but coaches are able to attend the camp as well. They can watch the hands-on portion of the camp, as well as have an opportunity to spend 30-60 min with the Premier/Academy Coach(es) and go over what was taught, as well as ask any questions they have.
Athletes attending this camp should be over 10 years old, and have a minimum of level 2/3 stunting experience.

- Intake (30 Min)
o Registration will include a google form, that will both allow clinicians to prepare for the skill level of attendees, but will also let athletes identify specific things they may want to work on (ei. Specific stunts, or wanting help with level 7 baskets)
o Intake will also allow athletes to identify if they are working with a group of people, or are there alone / need to be worked into a group
o After athletes register and sign in, 30 minutes will be spent creating groups, assessing skill levels, and warming up.
- Stunting (2 hrs)
o Groups will be organized as close to level and skill as best as possible, and we will have enough clinicians available that every 2 groups should be able to have 1 instructor.
o Stunting will be based on group level, and will allow for a lot of flexibility to be able to handle a mixed experience level across the clinic.
o Athletes will be able to receive both general knowledge and tips in warm up skills, as well as dive in to specific skill goals they have when they work into smaller groups.
- Additional Time (1 hr)
o The time spent here will be determined by the intake form. This will be an opportunity to provide a more desirable clinic experience. If there is a large interest in baskets, tumbling, or anything else, this time will be spent providing athletes with that opportunity.
- Coaches / Athlete Session (30 – 60 min)
o Coaches session is for coaches that attended and watched the clinic to go over in more detail some of the information presented to the athletes. It will also be a chance for the Premier Coach in attendance to present any specific knowledge or important information they want, and will end with a Q&A type session between attending coaches and the premier coaches.
o Athlete Session is a chance for local athletes to better get to know the National Athletes! The premier athletes in attendance will talk about their journey through cheer, as well as impart some specific habits or tips they have for training. The session will close with an AMA for local athletes to ask anything they want to know about being a national athlete.
