CheerForce SG At Viet Nam Cheer Fest 2018

Author : CheerForce Singapore

Date:04-01-2019

It is the fourth year of the Viet Nam Cheer Fest happening in Ho Chi Minh City for cheerleaders in Vietnam to come together to compete and decide who is the best. CheerForce SG was proud and honored to be invited as a major partner in this biggest cheerleading event in Ho Chi Minh City.

CheerForce SG sponsored the event with CheerForce SG rigid sport tapes and chilled isotonic drinks for the competitors to enjoy while they prepare for the competition. We were glad to hear feedback from the competitors that they really enjoyed the tapes and drinks that were sponsored and it made the competition more enjoyable for them.

Working with Hung from Sai Gon Beast Squad, our head coach TJ and tumbling coach TY were invited to be the judges for the competition. It was really an eye-opener for us as we got to witness routines not only from teams in Ho Chi Minh City but also from teams in Hanoi, who flew down just to compete.

The flow of events was different from competitions that we have been to in Singapore and Thailand. It all started with the competitors march in with their teams to introduce them to the audiences followed by the introduction of the judges. Flowers were also presented to the judges as a token of appreciation.

As the competitors return to the warm up mats to began their warm up, the competition started with a hip hop dance performance followed by a performance by a talented singer who performed 2 songs for the audience where the audiences sang along. After which, the competition starts officially with the first team taking the mat.

In Ho Chi Minh City, stunts and tumbling are awarded lesser points than other countries as 30% of the score is given to their dance segment. It was something innovative as they edited it to cater to the cheerleading market in Vietnam, where most of the cheerleaders are dancers as well, so as to draw their interests into joining the cheerleading team.

Many teams had really innovative routines which we really enjoy watching. Most of the teams had a theme to their performance, which is not common in competitive cheerleading, and we we believe it will be a trend for competitive cheerleading routines for years to come.

The day before the competition, we were tasked to conduct a cheerleading stunt and tumbling workshop for the competing cheerleaders to teach them proper stunting, tumbling and spotting techniques. Close to a hundrend cheerleaders turned up for the workshop and it proved to be a challenge taking such huge group with just 3 instructors but we took up the challenge confidently with a plan in mind.

The workshop was proven to be a great success as participants later feedback that they understood better on what was taught and learnt a lot more from our CheerForce SG instructors as compared to other instructors in previous years. It was really comforting to hear such affirming feedbacks from the participants despite the language barriers which posed as a challenge during the delivery of the workshop.

Despite the differences in language, we had met many wonderful friends and passionate cheerleaders who are hungry for cheerleading knowledge, to become a better athlete or a bette coach. We would like to thank Hung and his team Sai Gon Beast Squad, and many other friends in Vietnam, for the kind hospitality during our stay there as well as giving us the opportunity to appreciate the cheerleading culture in Vietnam.

Till we meet again, take care, train hard and train safe everyone!

Author : CheerForce Singapore

Date:31-12-2018

December 2019 has been an eventful month for us as events were in high gear and so was our cheerleading performance. On top of that, the team was also busy preparing for Chingay 2019 rehearsals happening in January.

One of the key performances was the half-time show for the Delta League Finals by National Crime Prevention Council held at the Jalan Besar Stadium on the 22 December. It was a great night performing for the families and friends who were there to support the players and it was awesome to hear positive feedback from a satisfied client that the guests and themselves really enjoyed our performance.

What would the end of year be without a countdown party? We were exhilarated to be invited back to Our Tampines Hub on New Year’s Eve to perform for their Countdown 2019 celebration. The energy from the crowd was really awesome and it was a blast performing for everyone who was there to countdown to 2019 together with us! What a great way to wrap things up in 2018!

We are extremely thankful to all the wonderful opportunities that were given to us in the year 2018 and we are truly blessed to be able to work with such wonderful clients to bring a memorable cheerleading experience to their guests at their event.

CheerForce Charity Christmas 2018

Author : CheerForce Singapore

Date:07-12-2018

Christmas is the season of giving and CheerForce came together as a team this December to give back to the community but with a twist. Instead of giving gifts this festive season, we decided as a team to give our blood.

Yes, that’s right. This year for CheerForce Charity Christmas 2018, we headed to the BloodBank @ Dhoby Ghaut to donate our blood. We got ourselves registered and found that we were given an organisation code ‘P0882’ to allow us to see how much blood has the organisation donated collectively to achieve milestones together.

It was a really stringent process where after registration, all of us had to go through screening by a professional to determine if we were suitable to donate blood. Once approved, we were directed to the blood donation area for the extraction of our blood into a blood bag.

Do you know that with every bag of blood donated, you can save up to 3 lives? The blood will be split into 3 components, the red blood cells, the plasma and the platelets, which is the reason why one bag of blood can saves up to 3 lives. It was a really fulfiling experience for the team knowing that we potenially saved up to 21 lives just on the day itself.

Although the number may be small, we got to start somewhere to amount to something big for the community. So join us in our efforts to give back to the community and save lives!

Author : CheerForce Singapore

Date:04-11-2018

It has been an eventful weekend for CheerForce SG as we got to bring cheerleading to the public thanks to Mediacorp and Active SG for allowing us to be their cheerleading service provider at the Mediacorp Subaru Car Challenge 2018 and the Car-Free Weekend.

The Mediacorp Subaru Car Challenge was an inspiring experience for us as we perform and cheered the participants on as they brave the weather to be the last person standing. Seeing their determination and endurance was really admirable.

It was fulfilling to bring smiles to those who came forward to experience cheerleading with us. Many enjoyed flying in the air and have their first ever stunt photo taken with us. It was awesome to give so many people a delightful first cheerleading experience.

Being the first cheerleading team in Singapore to incorporate LED into cheerleading, we were fortunate to share this experience with many people at the Car-Free Weekend, where they got to have photos taken with our LED props and outfits which looks amazing in the night sky.

The outfit that grabbed the attention of most cameras was the LED wings which looks stunning, like a pair of angel wings spread open to illuminate the darkness. Many passers-by stopped in their tracks and whipped out their phones to capture photos of the magnificent sight.

We are really thankful to be given such platforms for us to bring wonderful cheerleading experience to the public in Singapore, hoping to increase the awareness of the sport of cheerleading through our efforts.

CheerForce Outreach events this weekend was a successful one and we hope to meet even more people at our future outreach events. So stay tuned as we work towards bringing you more awesome cheerleading experiences!

CFXVQ 2018 CF Elite Cheer Exchange Tour

Author : CheerForce Singapore

Date:17-10-2018

The term CFXVQ might sound foreign to many people but to members of CheerForce SG, it is something we hold close to heart.

It all started back in May 2016 when we decided to reach out into the Thailand cheerleading market for an overseas exchange. Being a young team of only one year old, it was not easy to have teams that wanted to have exchange with us.

After reaching out to 6 teams, we got in contact with P’Tan. We made an overseas call, confirmed the dates of our exchange and our first exchange with Vanquish Cheerleading Team was set.

Throughout the past 2 years, we have made numerous trips to Thailand for exchanges with them. As we try to work past the language barriers, cheerleading has always been the common language that we speak and through cheerleading, we have built stronger and fonder memories together.

Earlier this month, 10 of us made a trip up to Thailand for our CFXVQ 2018 exchange. Despite both teams having new training place and new members in the team, the feeling of family is still always there.

Every exchange feels like a long awaited family reunion of brothers and sisters and it’s always heart warming to see their faces welcoming us every time without fail.

Despite them busy having practices for their upcoming competition, we had a great time bonding with them during their breaks and after training as we exchanged skills, laughters, Facebook and Instagram.

On the day that we are leaving Bangkok, we were touched that the team came to send us off at the airport. As we took our last few photos and hugged them goodbye, we know that we will see each other again soon, in Singapore or in Thailand.

This exchange may be a first for many of the members of both teams and we hope that we will all keep in contact on the team level as well as on the personal level so that when we meet again, we will have more stories to tell, more memories to share.

We are very fortunate to have the support of Vanquish Cheerleading Team for the past two years and we look forward to many more years of friendship to come! Special thanks to P’Tan and P’Ben for their unconditional support and always believing in us!

CheerForce & Vanquish! Two Teams, One Family!

Singapore Chinese Girls’ School Cheerleading Workshop

Author : CheerForce Singapore

Date:16-08-2018

CheerForce SG conducted a Cheerleading Workshop for the Student Leaders in Singapore Chinese Girls’ School with the purpose of introducing elementary cheerleading to their students and teaching them a simple routine to their school cheer. From the feedbacks they gave, the students had a great experience learning from our professional instructors who are always there to ensure that every student gets the best experience from this workshop.

Our instructors broke down the steps into great details and customised it to the students’ understanding, and that enables the students with zero cheerleading experience to learn and put up a short cheerleading routine to their school cheer in less than 2 hours. All of us were proud of what we have achieved together as students and instructors and we look forward to them leading the school cheer in zest and confidence.

Cheerleading is not about waving pompoms in the air and dancing but a performance sport that fosters teamwork, self-confidence and leadership. CheerForce’s CHEER Program takes various aspects of cheerleading and put it into a program that helps develop organisations and groups into high performance teams. We aim to let more people experience the benefits of cheerleading through our CHEER Program and help them be better as a team and as an individual.

CheerForce SG NDP Outing 2018

Author : CheerForce Singapore

Date:08-08-2018

As August arrives, it marks that National Day is just around the corner. For those who do not know, National Day is celebrated in Singapore every year on the August 9 in commemoration of Singapore’s independence in year 1965. This year our nation turns 53 years old and CheerForce decided to have a team outing to visit various tourist attractions.

Starting off the tour at Marina Square, the team ventured off in high spirits to the Merlion Park. It happened to be the day of the NDP Preview 2 and DHL Asia Cup at The Padang so the area was packed with people in celebratory spirits. Navigating through the crowd, we finally managed to arrive at the Merlion Park.

Filled with tourists, we managed to find a less crowded spot and began our picture taking. Everytime we were to do our stunts in public, it would attract many “wow” at first and gradually people will start turning their phones towards us to snap a photo or two. That’s the magic of cheerleading, it makes heads turn and people stop to see more.

As our picture taking and entertaining the crowd comes to an end at the Merlion Park, it started drizzling and we seeked shelter at our second stop, the Esplanade – Theatres On The Bay, a performing arts centre located in Downtown Core near the mouth of the Singapore River.

As the rain comes to a halt, we ventured out to the open space in front of the building for some photos with the landmark. However, shortly, we were notified that we are not allowed to take stunt photos at the landmark unless we are licensed performer of the Esplanade. Hence, we took a train to our next destination, Marina Bay Sands.

Over at Marina Bay Sands we found a prime picture taking location along the Olympic Walk. Filled with high traffic, many people slowed down and stop to watch what we are doing. As we send more stunts and tosses up in the air, more crowds gathered to watch, with occasion “good job” and “you guys are good” from the crowd.

As the sunset draws near, we concluded our picture taking with some pyramids and ended our day with a team dinner at Hifumi in Marina Square. Hop over to our Facebook Page to see some pretty sights from our wonderful little lion city!

GetActive! Singapore Launch With CheerForce SG At CarFreeSunday

Author : CheerForce Singapore

Date:01-08-2018

A group of cheerleaders were standing by to bring excitement and cheers to hundreds of Singaporeans as they gathered at The Padang early in the morning at 8am for the launch of GetActive! Singapore.

CheerForce SG was honored to be a partner of ActiveSG and Sport Singapore at their launch of GetActive! Singapore at the CarFreeSunday on the 29th July 2018 as we celebrate National Day through sports together as one Team Singapore.

As the sound of the air horns flags off the GetActive! GetGreat! Nila Run, CheerForce cheerleaders cheered the crowd on with zest, boosting them with positive vibes on a Sunday morning. The crowd stopped in their tracks when we showcased some of our gravity-defying and free-flying stunts and tosses. Many participants had the opportunity to have their photos taken with our cheerleaders to keep as a memory.

Apart from cheering up the crowd at the launch, CheerForce SG had another task on hand, and that is to educate the public about cheerleading so as to promote awareness of the sport in Singapore. Crowds gathered at our booth to have their first-hand experience of cheerleading as they "flew" in the air in CheerForce style for their very first time!

We went to the event hoping to promote and educate about cheerleading, and we got more than that. Made plenty of friends, got to know about other sports, but what’s more fulfiling to us is bringing smiles and laughter to everyone through cheerleading.

Thank you to all that came and supported us at the launch and at our booth. We look forward to bringing better cheerleading experience to more people in the future!

Promoting Cheerleading In Singapore

Author : CheerForce Singapore

Date:23-07-2018

On 30th May 2018, CheerForce took a huge step to change its direction and purpose as we saw the problem that was causing the sport of cheerleading to decline in Singapore. We decided to make the change from a competition oriented team to a performance oriented team so as to reach out to more Singaporeans to promote and increase the awareness for the sport we love.

Being a Singapore cheerleading performance team, we are on the constant lookout for talents that has the love for performing as well as the love for cheerleading. However, we also welcome public with no prior cheerleading experience to come and join us to learn about the sport of cheerleading and the safety precautions that coaches and members take to ensure everyone has a fun and safe training.

Together as a team, we aim to increase the public’s awareness and understanding of cheerleading as a unique performance sport in Singapore through our cheerleading performances and workshops. Cheerleading is a unique performance sport that requires the participation and cooperation of all members in the team. It helps individuals to build trust, teamwork, discipline and leadership within the team.

Through our efforts, we aim to have more people exposed to cheerleading in a conducive and fun environment where safety is the top priority. For those who are interested to have a try at cheerleading, our trainings are on every Friday 7:30pm-10:30pm and every Saturday 1pm-4pm. Drop us a message or an email if you would like to join us for our training sessions or just to find out more about cheerleading and about CheerForce.
