Nearly 2500 players and coaches of 82 teams gathered in Nanjing Zhonghua Middle School, competing fiercely for the champion.
With the instruction of teacher Zhang Li and assisted by teacher Zhang and teacher Tang of the PE Group, NFLS Cheerleading Team stood out in cheerleading dance (street dance) and skilled cheerleading with an excellent total score and won the Senior High Group 1st Prize.
Creative cheerleading, the highlight of the competition rules, advocates the combination of popular sports and art as to greatly improve the creativity of the young students. It is understood that Nanjing Education Bureau has made considerable changes in the competition rules. In order to strongly popularize skilled cheerleading and to emphasize the equal importance of skilled cheerleading and cheerleading dance, a special rule about group competition was made, which meant the teams had to choose two items, either flower ball or street dance and skilled cheerleading.
Nanjing Education Bureau hopes that this competition would enrich the students’ life after school and that the building of personality, health and safety always come first and the requirement of character training, skills developing and spirit building will have a deep impact on the students, encouraging them to develop the talents of their own and promoting the influence of cheerleading in the whole city.
