Newham’s Ascension Eagles Cheerleaders (AEC) are looking for the next generation of sporting champions to continue their Olympic success.

Fresh from their stint as staple performers before the London 2012 Basketball and Volleyball events, the interntional champions based in Custom House are running a cheer camp to recruit new athletes to their talented team to play their part in Olympic legacy.

Running from August 28 to 31 at Talent Central in Gallions Reach Shopping Park, the opportunity is also a chance to get involved before the worldwide release of the AEC film in 2014 which is being made by Big Talk Productions, the creators of Attack the Block, Paul, and Hot Fuzz.

AEC director Angela Green, from Newham, said: “Legacies aren’t just wishful thinking. They are the result of determined doing.

“Ascension Eagles are so much more than a cheerleading team; our program provides catalyst opportunities to help people achieve their full potential.

“We opened London’s first cheer gym in 2010 so that we could extend our outreach, and enable even more to succeed.

“Operating out Talent Central cheer gym from Gallions Reach Shopping Park means that our weekly outreach grew from 100 to 1,000 per week.

“We have achieved so much over the past 16 years. But each year, we have the opportunity to start again, giving more young people a chance to join the Ascension Eagles family.

“Without a doubt, we know the best is yet to come.”

Boys and girls of all ages and abilities are welcome with no previous experience necessary.
