Cheerleaders – Vipers leading the way

Footscray’s own cheerleaders the Victoria University Vipers have been wiping the floor with their opposition since bursting onto the scene two years ago. The squad is made up of Victoria University students from various disciplines, including engineering, sport, exercise science, teaching and creative arts.

In 2010, their debut year, the Vipers won both state and national titles in the level 2 University division. They went on to defend their state and national titles the following year. Competitive cheerleading is one of the fastest growing sports in Australia. Teams create a fusion of gymnastics, aerobatics and dance elements to create an explosive routine.
