Presentation of Cheerleading in Germany

 

As a sport with more than 100 years of history, cheerleading was introduced to Germany only some 30 years ago. Since then cheerleading has become more and more popular. Since 1982 the American Football Association of Germany (AFVD) with its Cheerleading Committee (CVD) is the governing body for cheerleading in Germany, recognized by the German National Olympic Committee where the federation is member. Today, over 200 licensed coaches, members of the federation, support this sport by teaching cheerleading to nearly 10.000 active cheerleaders, preparing them for the whole variety of cheerleading from show to competition either on local or international level. The Cheerleading coaching license is recognized and issued by the National Olympic Committee and guarantees access to financial support by the government.

 

The AFVD/CVD believe that only good education is the basis for every effort in sports, not only for the single activity but for every coach and staff. Thus the national federation as well as the regional federations provide a widely spread qualifying program for coaches and athletes. In this program they work together with the National Olympic Committee and other national or regional sport federations as the federations for dance and gymnastics.

 

Germany as the hosting country of the first European Cheerleading Championship in Stuttgart is proud to send the best of its cheerleaders to every ECC. In 2008, in Ljubljana there will compete 16 squads with some 180 German athletes in 10 categories, including the defending European Champions in the Senior Allgirl Group Stunt Category – the CLL Püppies.

 

All these teams had to qualify for the ECC through several competitions, as every team has to qualify at regional championships (usually the championship of the federal state) before getting the right to start in the national championship. The best squads met in March in Bremen, the host city of the 2009 Cheerleading World Championship, to compete for the German National Title and the chance to go to Ljubljana.

 

Twelve other cheerleaders will have a very special opportunity to promote their sport in 2008. At the 2008 EFAF Junior American Football European Championship in Sevilla (Spain), the newly composed “German Cheer All Stars” will support all teams in their competition with small shows.

 

The 5th IFC Cheerleading World Championships November 28/ 29, 2009 at AWD Dome at Bremen will be the next milestone in the history of Cheerleading in Germany. With a capacity of 14.000 spectators the venue is a brand new multifunctional indoor arena, which was used for the Table Tennis World Championships in 2006 as well for Tennis Davis Cup games.

 

AFVD/ CVD thank the organisation committee of the ECC 2008 and wish every athlete a good and fair competition in Slovenia.
