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.




BGU are heading to Amsterdam for our very first course in November 2019.

After qualifying coaches Internationally and from across Europe we are excited to be invited to Amsterdam to share our knowledge and BGU Cheerleading qualification. For further information please see our course dates, levels and locations or email forms.bgu@gmail.com.



Level 1-2 is perfect for coaches with 0 to 3 years experience or anyone who wants a refresher in training cheerleading athletes at USASF / IASF levels 1 and 2 ( i.e coaches who are taking on Level 1 and Level 2 teams for the first time or those working with younger athletes).
Level 3 Only is a one day course designed to expand your progression and knowledge. You may have been teaching at levels 1-2 and would like to take the next step forward. It may be your BGU Level 1-2 is about to expire and you would just like to take this one day course to qualify you for a further 3 years instead of retaking Levels 1-2 again.
Level 3 Plus is designed for the intermediate to elite coaching and has the pre-requisite requirement for eligibility to attend the course. Cheerleading coaches attending must hold a valid BGU Level 1 - 2 qualification or have completed and passed IASF / USASF coaches credentials Levels 1 - 3 within the last 12 month. Along with each of these great coaching courses above you can also up grade your booking with an add-on package.

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!"
