Bajan cheerleaders don’t only look good in their uniforms but they have technique to boot.

Last Saturday at the Wildey gymnasium in Wildey, St. Michael all this technique was put on display at the annual National Cheerleading and Cheer Dance competition.

Close to 100 youngsters participated, ranging in ages six to 21, and President of the Barbados Cheerleading Federation, Vincent Carter, praised them for the improved skills displayed.

Speaking to Barbados TODAY, he said he believed one of the main reasons for that improvement was the quality of coaches. In December last year 23 coaches were ranked at level one, while one was classified at level two.
