The Sharkettes are the official cheerleading squad of the University of Hull and have been around for over 20 years. This year our club will consist of two competing teams, Team Gold and Team Sapphire. We will be competing at Level 1 and Level 2 stunt level this year at, The Circus Spectacular and ICC. Our two teams will also be competing in Hull University Varsity 2020 against the Lincoln Jets.
Cheerleading involves a combination of stunting, dancing and gymnastics, as well as cheering on other teams during games; this year we will be supporting a team a month. We cater to all abilities so don’t worry if you’ve never cheered before. Our squad gets everybody involved and works to everyone’s strengths, whilst having a really fun time.
We’ve just recently had our most successful year getting the highest marks we’ve ever received, now we have the urge to do even better and build on this further. Our club is open to everyone girls, boys and a range of abilities, however we are looking for dedicated hardworking members to join our club. If you don’t think this is for you, you can be a social member, as we are a very close squad and include everyone.
Socialing is a big part of our team as we social every Wednesday at Tofts, as cheer and joint with other teams with themes and social skirts, and we also go on Tour. If you don’t want to be a sports member, you can join as a social member, and still be a part of the team and make friends and many memories.
We also have a very close relationship with the Sharks (American Football) along with other sports teams, as we regularly support AU games, and we have socials with other teams. However, with the sharks we have Pub Golf, Rose Bowl, Christmas Meals, Super Bowl, Varsity, Old Boys and End of Year Meals together.
Joining an AU team will be the best part of your university experience, so why not do it with us by joining an uprising popular ‘sport’!. Whether you want to be a competing member or social member. Come and join Sharkettes to be part of this great team, by keeping fit, having fun and make lifelong friends and memories.

All of our clubs and societies are run by a committee.
A committee is a team of people that lead, organise and publicise a group within your Students’ Union.
It can be really rewarding as well as being a great way to gain experience and invaluable skills for your future career.
