We need your help

The cost of the sport is higher than ever, with prices increasing on a yearly basis. For the Vixens to attend the ICC Nationals Competition costs on Average £5,000 a year. This is one of the 3 competitions that Vixens enter on a yearly basis, with the total for all 3 competitions coming to on average £12,000.

This year the Nationals will cost £4,879 for the Vixens to attend, £1,000 of which we'd like to raise though this crowdfunding appeal.

Who we are

Last year the Southampton Vixens had an exceptional year with both our Dance and Competition Squad winning National Champions at Future Cheer, as well as earning the World Cheer Coalition (ICC) Title. The competition Squad scored one of their highest scores ever, maxing out the skills level and the Hip-Hop Squad winning their division by over 40 points.

These results are some of the best the Vixens have achieved and we'd love to have another opportunity, with your support, to achieve these titles again at this year's National competition.

The Southampton Vixens is comprised of 3 Squads - Game day, Competition and Hip-Hop. We also have 2 stunt groups - All-Girl Level 3 and All-Girl Level 4. The stunt groups were also National Champions in the 2014-15 Season, and this is something we are hoping we can obtain again this year.

Will you join our community of supporters?

With your support, we'll be able to raise enough money to send our squad to Nationals. For a lot of our team, this opportunity is three years in the making and something they'll only ever be able to achieve with your support.

Nationals is the Vixens hardest competition, where we enter into a division comprised of University Teams as well as All-Star teams. When we refer to All-Star teams, we are talking about teams who have no rules placed on them, and have the pick of the whole country and age ranges, as opposed to just the pick from University Students.

We are fortunate receive funding from the University, as well as a high intake of members who provide us with membership fees that we are able to put towards all 3 Squads, as well as sponsorship from external sources. We are heavily investing our time into fundraising as much as we can, through the means of bag packing, fundraisers, bake sales etc.

We have a large university presence, as well as close ties with the Southampton Stags American Football Team, who we cheer for at all of their games. We are also very active within the community, supporting charities as well as sponsors. We have also been represented in the media on multiple occasions. With all of this support behind us we're confident we'll meet our goal - and you can help us get there by donating anything you can to our crowdfunding appeal.

Competition Entry - £400 out of £1,670
