Plenty to cheer about 

A local cheerleading coach was celebrating after one of her teams, the Ladies of Ten, were invited to compete at the World Championships in Florida in April. The Cheerforce 10 senior team include dancers aged from 13 to 32, and they were selected after a contest against some of the country’s top teams.

Cheerforce 10’s Rachael Swinnerton, who’s originally from Bridgnorth, says, “Throughout the season every dancer has trained hard and missed social events through sheer dedication to their team. We have dancers who were pulled in from our reserves at the last minute to enable us to compete for the world bid, learning the routine in a matter of weeks. Without them, this wouldn’t have been achievable.”

The team are working hard to raise the money to get to the US, with a dance on top of the Wrekin just one of the events planned. They also have a crowdfunding page at Just Giving – search for Cheerforce10.
