What We Do

Teach and train cheerleading coaches. Building from the Ground Up has become the benchmark and the standard not only in the United Kingdom, but also in other countries around the World including Spain and Canada, due to its high levels of competence.




For ages 16 and up. 

Our previous level 3plus course taught coaches the techniques of the core levels 3-5 skills. Our revamped courses will do much more than that, with each level now separated, coaches will learn to teach both level appropriate and elite skills. Our instructors will work with the coaches to guide them and their stunt groups through each of the skills on our level 4/5 &6 syllabus. This learning process will help coaches fully master the range of grips and drills at level 4/5 & 6. As the skills are being built, coaches will need to ’troubleshoot’ the skills, learning how to spot and correct technique issues at these levels. This same process will be used as we teach tumbling at its highest level. Coaches will be required to instruct athletes through a range of tumbling drills, circuits and skills. Coaches will gain a greater understanding on the physical concepts of tumbling and how to build and produce successful high-level tumblers. Finally this course will have an in-depth study on training practices and mental readiness needed for athletes to perform successfully at these higher levels, as well as a detailed look at the rules at levels 4/5 & 6, so both coach and athlete are prepared for the intensity of the level 4/5 & 6 divisions. For maximum learning, we recommend coaches only attend this course when ready to take on these higher levels. 
*This course requires coaches to have held a level 3 qualification for at 6 months and have been actively coaching at level 3 or higher. 
**Coaches are permitted to bring a standard stunt group of 4 athletes plus 1 additional tumbler. (This is optional)

What Customers Say About BGU

  • "I attended your course in Essex this weekend and wanted to give some feedback. Myself and the other girls from my team who attended have all cheered for a long time and still learnt a lot of invaluable new skills. The course instructors, Conor and Lisa, were so professional and helpful, as were all of the support staff on hand throughout the two days. I left feeling confident to go and teach the younger members of our programme safely and correctly, and also felt really inspired to improve the way we teach and work with the children, and implement new techniques and really work on the girls' individual progression. Thank you for delivering the training in such an inspiring, clear and motivating way!"

    Molly McBurnie
  • "I just wanted to say thank you so much for a fantastic training weekend on the BGU Levels 1&2 Course. I was very impressed with the whole experience, which was professionally run by knowledgeable and experienced coaches. The whole experience was extremely informative; the staff quickly realised that I had no experience in the cheerleading world, and were especially helpful in going over things I didn't quite understand, explaining things further to me, of which I am extremely grateful! I am very excited to implement what I have learnt."

    Jessica Waters-Leavins
  • "I just wanted to say thank you for my coaching qualification. I coach my old University team - we wouldn't be anywhere if your BGU team hadn't given me the confidence to stand up in front of 44 athletes and coach them this past season. Thank you!"

    Alicia Greaves
  • "Thank you once again for a great weekend. I feel re-energised and raring to go! Yet I also know what I need to concentrate on and work on to improve myself as a coach. I really would like to compliment the demo girls who patiently and diligently give up their weekends to help the future coaches and the safe development of the sport. So, thank you once again."

    Cathy Graham
  • "Just wanted to say thank you for the weekend, I really enjoyed it and felt like i learnt a lot from you and the others. Also the stunt teams were brilliant, so well done to them, too."

    Alex Fox
  • "Building From the Ground Up not only made me a coach but a better cheerleader. The hands-on approach is without a doubt the best way to learn the challenging sport. The course is delivered with an amazing consistency, having attended the Level 1&2 course twice, as a coach myself and bringing my coaches with me. While saying that, the wonderful people who deliver the qualification keep the course up to date with the ever-evolving world of cheerleading. The customer service is excellent and Lisa especially does everything in her power to ensure complete satisfaction. Each instructor has, on both courses, gone above and beyond. Hayden and Conor took time out of their lunches and at the end of the day to go over further questions or demos that we needed. Not only do i trust BGU with my education, I trust BGU in the education of my athletes. All in all the best coaching qualification for the developing cheerleader!"
