Huddersfield Giants Community Trust, Giants Elite Squad took to the competition floor for the first time in two years!
The elite squad entered into the ICC Northern Championships, for the first event of 2022, leaving with their heads held high with fantastic results including five 1st place finishes!
Competitions had unfortunately been postponed and cancelled over the last two years due to restrictions and the pandemic so there was a huge buzz from the athletes and coaches to finally compete. The event was held in Manchester at the BEC Arena, on Saturday 22nd and Sunday 23rd January where the Giants competed in 12 performances overall, involving solo and team routines.
Robyn Evans, Cheerleading & Gymnastics manager comments on the championships: “Our team, group stunt and soloists delivered a brilliant selection of performances. It had been a long wait until we could finally compete again but I am so unbelievably proud of all of our athletes who took to the floor. The smiles and energy from everyone makes all the hard work everyone puts in so worth it!”
