The CHARM Cheerleading Championships 2015 (C3 2015) is another cheerleading competition that is helping to grow the sport even further.
Organised by the Cheerleading Association and Register of Malaysia (CHARM), it was held on Aug 1 and 2 at The Curve shopping mall in Mutiara Damansara, Petaling Jaya.
What makes it different from CHEER is its international vibe: C3 2015 attracted more than 1,000 cheerleaders from over 70 teams, both local as well as a handful from the Philippines, China and Singapore.
“We offer local teams a full international competition format with a wide range of divisions for all ages,” said CHARM president Beverly Hon. “They also get the chance to pit their skills against teams from other countries.”
With this international exposure came the chance for teams to gauge how much they’ve progressed ahead of CHEER 2015.
C3 is sanctioned by the International Cheer Union (ICU) and supported by the Asian Cheer Union (ACU). ICU-accredited judges from Taiwan, Singapore, Indonesia and the Philippines even flew in to Malaysia to assess the teams!
With 15 divisions ranging from Primary School Level 1 (kids aged seven to nine), all the way to College/University Co-Ed Elite Medium (kids aged 14 and above), cheerleaders of all ages had a chance to show the international judges what they were made of.
Team Calyx from SMK Katolik gave the audience a taste of what’s to come at CHEER 2015, and it’s clear they’re gunning for the top spot. Calyx All-Girls and Calyx Co-ed emerged champions in the Team Cheer All-Girl Level 4 Medium and Team Cheer Coed Level 4 Medium divisions respectively.
Their junior team did their school proud as well – Calyx Junior topped the ranks for the All-Girl Level 3 Small.
Whether this winning streak continues will be determined at CHEER 2015 though, when reigning champions Cyrens, Rayvens and Zodiac Co-Ed return to the mat.

C3 gave local cheerleaders a chance to pit their skills against each other as well as teams from Singapore, the Philippines and China.
