COACHES

Tasmin’s coaching career started at Bristol University, where she led the team to become Ultimate Champions – meaning they placed first in the UK!

 

During her time coaching she has worked with All Star, school and university squads of all levels, from complete beginners to advanced and athletes from ages 3 – 30. She has also cheered on ESPN and choreographed for the Rugby League World Cup!

 

Her teams have been named:

Ultimate Champions (first place in the UK)!

Grand Champions

4x National Champions

Regional Champions

…and a large percentage of athletes on these teams were completely new to Cheer!

 

Beyond Cheer coaching, Tasmin is also a highly experienced judge, working at Cheerleading competitions across the UK. She has judged Cheer levels 0 to level 7, Tiny to Masters and all styles of dance. This unique experience feeds directly into her role as Head Coach, as it is invaluable when coaching and choreographing routines at Ultimate Cheer.

 

She holds her Cheerleading coaching qualifications for Levels 1 – 5 and is also one of only a handful of IASF-certified Safety Judges in the UK.

 

She is DBS (Enhanced) checked, First Aid certified and holds safeguarding certifications in Child Protection in Education & Safeguarding Young People.

 

Tasmin’s experience inspired her to create a Cheer team in London. What makes this programme special is that it has a place for everyone, from kids classes to adult-only, providing a place for athletes to progress from any level to the best of their ability.
