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!

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.

History Of CheerForce SG

Author : CheerForce Singapore

Date:09-07-2018

CheerForce SG was started back in 2014 by Coach TJ and Coach Gwen with the purpose to provide an avenue for cheerleaders to train at regardless of their skills and experience. They recruited members from all walks of life, from students to working adults, from taleted individuals to members with zero experience in the sport. Everyone came together under one roof, one team, one family.

CheerForce started off in a small rented warehouse in Oxley Bizhub which they only had 5 metre by 5 metre space for us to conduct training. Resources were limited but their passion for the sport was not. They trained hard with the aim to take part in their first cheerleading competition in 2016. Representing CheerForce at the Asia Cheerleading Invitational Championship 2016 was 3 group stunts and they managed to clinch 2nd Runners-Up.

With their participation in the competition, words spread about this new young team in Singapore and more people joined the team. As the team continues to grow, they reached out to overseas cheerleading community and connected with Vanquish Cheerleading team in Thailand and had their first overseas exchange in late 2016. Since then, relationships between both teams only got closer.

In 2017, CheerForce made the decision to take part in the team category at the Asia Cheerleading Invitational Championships 2017 despite vast majority of the team having no experience in team competition at the Asia level. That was the first time CheerForce sent a full team of 24 men to compete against 5 other teams from Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia and China.

Despite the strong competition and them being a relatively young team, CheerForce conquered the uphill battle and emerged 1st Runners-Up in the competition that year. The team was filled with tears of joy when the announcement was made and no words could describe that moment for the team as they know all their efforts have paid off being crowned 2nd in Asia.

Determined to come back better and stronger, CheerForce recruited more members and worked on overcoming their weaknesses from the previous competition. Many overcomed their fears to become better for the team. Although it was a tough journey with many obstacles in their way, they pushed through together as a team and all their efforts were worth it when CheerForce was announced Champion for the Asia Cheerleading Invitational Championship 2018 Team Cheer Coed Elite Division.

They are the champion team in Asia. For them, it was a dream come true.
