As per the coaches meeting held on 22nd May 2016, we hereby announce that all previous prohibitions implemented on some of the affected local athletes prior to 22nd May 2016 will be lifted without any appeal required.
From this meeting, we hope that all issues related to the prohibition set by the International Cheer Union (ICU) in 2012 have been clearly explained and understood. We also wish for all our coaches to assist in explaining these issues to their team and/or their school management, and to prevent any possible infringements looking forward. CAS will still be available to provide any further clarifications if required.
The association will strictly not entertain any appeal for subsequent infringement cases after the conclusion of the coaches meeting held on the 22nd May 2016.
Should there be any queries or clarifications, please email us at email@example.com. Thank you.
With reference to the recent accident involving a cheerleader from the Ngee Ann Polytechnic, Mr Lai Qing Xiang, the Cheerleading Association (Singapore) (CAS) would like to extend our deepest condolences to the family, friends and teammates of the late Mr Lai.
Safety has always been the utmost priority when it comes to the practice of cheerleading and is greatly emphasized during the coaching certification administered by CAS. The coaches are taught, and tested, on their knowledge of skills progression, spotting technique and proper safety equipment for stunting and tumbling. The major goal of CAS is to ensure a safe practice environment for all cheerleaders. We continue to encourage all cheerleaders and parents to be vigilant in protecting themselves by making sure their coaches are credentialed by CAS.
We also strongly urge all cheerleading coaches to attend upcoming coaching courses and safety review workshops conducted by CAS in order to ensure quality teaching and safety standards in all our coaches. We hope for everyone to stay alert during practices to minimize the chances of accidents or injuries in our athletes.
