Bringing the world of University Cheerleading to NUIG

Whether you can barely roll out of bed and reach your toes in the morning or you can do a round-off back-handspring double, you're more than welcome to join our merry band of cheerleaders as we explore the exciting and challenging world of cheerleading!

Join us for classes on stunting, tumbling, dance, and much more, while making life-long friends along the way and just having a generally awesome time!

We'll train hard, perform at events, compete at competitions, and party harder still when all is said and done :)

Training will be on Mondays from 6pm-7pm in the Stage

So join us now to see what cheerleading at NUIG can offer you!!

Opportunities for higher level cheer;

We have a level 5 team made up of students from both NUIG and GMIT that travels to the UCA University WorldCup Cheerleading Champonships in Orlando every January.

In April 2017 the  NUIG and GMIT combined to become the first ever collegiate-level cheerleading squad to compete at an international level in Orlando Florida in January of 2018. A team of 16 athletes from both colleges traveled to America to take on the World and came home victors, placing 2nd in their division (small coed elite) and 3rd in the Nations Cup.

We returned to defend our titles in January 2019, this time, winning 1st place in the small coed elite division. Ireland came home with Gold! 

If you'd like to follow them on their journey then follow us on Twitter (@Tribes_Ireland) and Instagram (@tribes_Ireland_cheerleading).
