Welcome to ParaCheer international CIO
ParaCheer International CIO is a registered charity promoting and supporting Inclusive cheerleading integrating disabled and non-disabled athletes. ParaCheer International is working with the International Cheerleading Union (ICU) to develop these divisions within the sport of Cheerleading.
This website aims to provide the reader with information about these new offerings within the sport including up to date bulletins as the sport is developed. This is also the place to come to find out about the progress of many national squads representing at the ICU Cheerleading Worlds competition. The ICU has officially approved inclusive divisions in Cheer and Freestyle Pom and has been running divisions for these since 2017. As this continues to develop into the All-star cheer industry you will also find contact for programmes offering teams regionally in the UK and internationally.
Visit the Workshops page to make arrangements for inclusive practice clinics for coaches, hosted taster days for squads, or Contact Us if you are interested in inspirational speaking appointments with Worlds First Wheelchair Partner Stunter, Rick Rodgers.
