Affinity & Sapphire
Affinity and Sapphire Elite Cheerleaders have had a long relationship and in Sept 2019 we made this official! The story goes that back in 2009, Affinity Founder Jennifer Page was approached by a Sapphire athlete (an athlete who would then go onto run the Sapphires later on) for gymnastics classes to help her learn a back handspring.
Out of these classes, Jen ended up joining the Sapphires as an athlete and competed with them for 3 years.
This paved the way for many other collaborations over the years with other Affinity coaches and athletes discovering cheerleading with Sapphire and vice versa with Affinity welcoming Sapphire coaches and athletes over for gymnastics.
So when in early 2019, the opportunity for Affinity, Sapphire and Goffs Academy trust to collaborate together we jumped at the chance (or should that be toe-touched!).
We're all aligned in what we do and why and committed to developing gymnastics and cheerleading moving forwards in our combined future as a larger, united club.
