The Southampton Vixens Cheer and Dance Squad is part of The University of Southampton's Athletic Union.
Our club is made up of 3 squads: The Competition Squad, the Hip-hop Dance Squad and the Game Day Squad, with the addition of various competing stunt groups. All girls are welcome to join and find out which squad suits them best, and boys are welcome to join our Game Day Squad, Co-ed Stunt Group and Dance Squad.
Easily recognised by their unrivalled sass and amazing uniforms, the Vixens have a wide presence representing the University at competitions and supporting The Southampton Stags American Football Team at their games. Throughout the year the squad embarks on weekly socials, hosts and attends fundraisers and joins the other Athletic Union teams on tour in Salou. The Vixens are also active in the wider community, supporting charities and promoting sponsors, as well as being represented in the media many times.
The Vixens 2016/2017 season was highly successful, as we reintroduced 2 stunt groups to join us at competitions- All Girl 3 and All Girl 4 who were both reigning champions throughout the season with All Girl 3 winning Grand Champions of all Stunt Groups at Future Cheer., The Game Day Squad boasted their most difficult and technical routine at Vixen showday, and the Dance Squad won a national title and also became Grand Champions at ICC Nationals, which meant they got those beautiful jackets!! As we head into our 15th Season, we cannot wait to see what the 2017/2018 squads will have to offer!
TASTERS & TRYOUTS
If you are interested in becoming a Vixen for the 2017/18 season please come along and meet us at bunfight which is being held at The Student Union on Wednesday 27th of September! No worries if you can't make it, just come along to our dance, comp or gameday taster sessions which start on Monday 2nd October at 18:30pm and will be held in Glen Eyre Hall. From there you can pick which squad you think will be most suitable for you and then come along to the 2nd taster session which is on Tuesday 3rd October for Comp/Gameday at 18:30pm, or Wednesday 4th October at 14:30pm for Dance.
All taster sessions are lead by our dance and comp coaches in a relaxed enjoyable environment so theres no need to worry about anything! The dance taster will consist of a short hip hop routine being taught step by step and the cheer taster will consist of being taught jumps, a small dance section and how to do simple stunts. Videos will also be uploaded onto our Facebook page so that you can practice the routine at home too! Then tryouts will be from 9am on Sunday 8th October, so remember to keep the day free! We are looking forward to meeting all the new Freshers or members of Southampton University that want to try something new! If anyone has any questions please contact us via our social media pages or by emailing into firstname.lastname@example.org.
