Welcome to Black Diamonds Cheerleading!


Black Diamonds are now recruiting new students for our 2017/2018 season. Registration is open until 31 July 2017. Further information can be found on our dedicated Facebook page – Black Diamond Cheerleaders.

No experience is necessary – all you need is lots of enthusiasm, be keen to learn new skills and have lots of fun!

All of our classes are now based at our fantastic new venue at Liberton High School, Edinburgh and are open to both males & females from the age of 5 years to adults.

Black Diamonds are working hard to promote cheerleading in Scotland and produce outstanding, talented dedicated cheerleaders and dancers who promote teamwork and team spirit.

Black Diamonds are a National Cheer and Dance squad based in Edinburgh. We run recreational and competitive cheerleading classes for all abilities and ages.

We specialise in All Star Cheerleading and also Pom, Cheer and Hip Hop Dance. Our Athletes and Dancers also take classes in tumbling (gymnastics) and fitness.

What a great start to the year – 2015 sees Black Diamonds students once again competing at the ICU WORLD CHEERLEADING CHAMPIONSHIPS in Orlando Florida!

To date we have won over 500 trophies and gained 18 National Championship Titles.

We compete throughout the year at local, regional & National competitions and have also competed at European & World Championship level.


All of our classes are open to both boys and girls from the age of 5+ to Adults 18+ (younger students may be considered). Recreational classes are held that do not involve competition work. Both recreational and competitive cheerleaders and dancers have the option to perform in Gala Days, charity events, local exhibitions etc. Our classes are foremost fun and friendly, and our priority is for students to learn the skills of cheerleading in a safe, fun environment, gain self esteem and make new friends.

All of our staff are highly skilled, fully qualified professional USASF coaches, who hold enhanced disclosures(PVG) and have first aid training.
