Ascension Eagles Cheerleaders (AEC) is a registered charity based in Newham, East London dedicated to transforming the lives of young people. AEC is recognised as one of Britain’s best all-round cheer programmes.
AEC’s mission is to inspire young people to reach their full potential, by providing:
• the highest level of training and coaching
• structured engagement in a team environment
• excellent opportunities to develop leadership skills
• support for academic achievement through our academic mentoring scheme.
AEC aims to make a difference to the lives of the young people of Newham so that they can go on to inspire future generations in their communities.
In its 20+ year history AEC has offered subsidised cheerleading classes to local young people as a way of keeping them engaged in physical activity, and also to develop and nurture transferable life skills.
AEC offers recreational cheer and tumbling classes, schools programmes and gym hire to a wider range of users through its Talent Central operations.
The club currently co-ordinates 150 young people in competitive cheerleading programmes, 76 weekly recreational users and 23 schools teams.
AEC’s keys to success have been its long-standing reputation for high quality coaching at reasonable costs along with great relationships with its users. AEC also has a long history of strong community ties and partnership work.
