A MALAGA cheerleading club has set its sights on more glory at the World Cup Cheer and Dance competition in August after achieving major success earlier this month.

Toxic Cheer Malaga competed in the Scream-n-Shout competition on July 3, where three of four teams won its divisions.

The senior level four team, Toxic Queens that consisted of members aged 12-16, was named as the overall grand champions.

Faith Ward (13) and Zoe Ward (8) also won several solo divisions.

Toxic Cheer owner Josh Coker said he was impressed with Malaga’s level of commitment and was anticipating what it could achieve in the future.

Toxic Cheer Malaga manager Kate Ward said she was proud of the results and wanted to continue its winning streak.

“Malaga is an up and coming club whereas all the other clubs are bigger, so really proud of them and excited,” she said.

“Two of those teams are pretty much new teams and the other ones have been going for a couple of years.”

Ward said the teams were preparing well for the upcoming tournament.

“They have been training really hard to know the routine and get their skills up to standard since the beginning of July,” she said.

“The senior team has been training around nine to 10 hours a week; it is full on.

“Now they have come back in the gym after one week off during the school holidays.”

She said the teams would keep their line-ups for the next five tournaments this year.

The World Cup Cheer and Dance competition will be held on August 27 to 28 at HBF Arena in Joondalup.
