Bexx continued to cheer for BHAFC when she went to Uni in Chichester, where she also joined the uni squad Chichester Cheetahs.

BGU Level 1&2 Qualified
Coach for Infinity Stars
Abi has an Enhanced DBS, is first Aid Qualified, fully insured and is a qualified Cheerleading Coach with BGU.
I First found my love of cheerleading when I went to Brighton University where I trialled to become a Brighton Panther. From there, I became fascinated by the sport and wanted to spread the love and excitement to others through coaching. I have competed at national level competitions in Birmingham, and Telford, this year becoming BCA Level 2 small, all girl national champions.
On my professional teaching placement last year, I ran an after school cheerleading club, creating a routine for a local schools competition.
I am most looking forward to watching the athletes develop and improve not only their cheerleading skills, but also their understanding of the values of teamwork, friendship and support for each other. I am very excited to see what the future holds for the team and can’t wait to get involved.
BGU Level 1&2 Qualified
Recreational Cheer Coach
I started dancing at the age of 2 when my mum took me to a dance class.I have been dancing for 14 years. I first started ballet when I was 2 and then when I was around 5 I started tap and modern have continued dance ever since.
I have also now qualified with BGU in level 1/2 cheer so now coach cheer as well as teaching dance! I think my favourite part about teaching is when the children get their new skill they have been trying for a long time. When they learn a new skill it’s exciting for all the students as they like to watch and inspire each other.
