We do not require anyone to have any experience in cheerleading or gymnastics in advance. We will build a team from scratch and start from the basics. Previous experience is of course meritorious and if you have any, please mention that in the sign-up form!
Lund Cheer is a part of Akademiska Föreningen (AF), hence all athletes must be a member of AF. You are a member of AF if you have paid for a membership in Studentlund. Other requirements to be part of the team:
- All team members should agree to the purpose of the association according to §2 in the statutes (see “About us”).
- All team members must agree to the alcohol- and drug policy according to §3 mom 4 in the statutes, which says that members must never be under the influence of alcohol or drugs during practices and that there is a zero tolerance for pushing people to drink alcohol (“alkoholhets”) outside of practices.
- All team members are expected to have a casualty insurance (olycksrisk / skadeförsäkring). If not, members are solely responsible for any injuries that may occur. The coaches will always bring a first aid kit to practices.
In Lunds Akademiska Cheerleadingförening, everyone is welcome as they are; bullying, macho culture, and boring attitudes are strictly prohibited, as are violations based on sexuality, gender, body, socioeconomic background, age, ethnicity, etc.
