Sydni Hall

Programme Director

Hi, My Name is Sydni and I am the Head Coach at Power Cheer!
I have been cheering for 12 years and have competed in many competitions, including multiple national competitions, the European Championships in Austria and the World Championships, representing Team England Cheerleading and Dance teams in Florida, USA!
I specialise in Cheer and tumble, I love to help athletes gain new tumble skills for their routines or for their own personal development as a athlete. From jumps and gym to learning how to hit the perfect prep I would like to help all athletes progress in their own perfect way.
From many years of competing as a high level dancer in the cheer industry I like to clean dance routines to the best of my ability and work with athletes to learn every count so they are able to do it in their sleep. If a athlete is looking to know their routine better and wants some extra help- Im your lady!

Tyla Cousins

Cheer & Gym Coach

My first introduction to cheerleading was in school at the age of 14. My main focus of cheerleading was the gymnastics sections, they really appealed to me for the creativity and individuality involved.

With gymnastics being my main motivation, my progression through the levels of cheerleading was fast and direct with now having coached athletes who have taken the USASF worlds stage to compete. 

One of my biggest achievements whilst being involved in cheerleading is winning the 2018 ICU championships and also placing top 10 in 5 consecutive years of attending ‘Worlds
