Now that lots of schools, practices and competitions are closed, we have a lot of time to binge-watch cheerleading shows, documentaries and movies!

This is a list of some of the most popular ones, plus some that you’ve probably not heard of before or might’ve forgotten existed.

Do you have any other suggestions? Comment below and we’ll add them!


1 & 2. Nfinity Champions League Movies

If you have been in the cheerleading world for a few years, you probably remember the first Champions League competition and movie.

If you don’t know, the Champions League was first a competition pretty similar to The Majors (only certain teams got invited) and they put all the routines together and made a movie! The craziest thing is that it even aired in some cinemas around the US for one night!

It’s so fun to look back at previous routines and teams. Athletes, stunts and skills you might have forgotten, or didn’t even know existed! The music isn’t that great though since copyrighted music couldn’t be used and teams got special mixes just for that competition.


Where to watch it

iTunes

You can both rent the movie and buy it on iTunes. You can then watch it offline on different devices (we recommend a laptop or phone) or connect it to your tv and watch it on the big screen!

Here’s the link to the first champions league movie – made during the 2013-2014 season.

The second movie came out the season after. Here’s the link for champions league 2!

Amazon Prime

Like with iTunes, you can both rent it and buy it on amazon.com. There is also an option to watch it for free if you have Amazon Prime. (Prime is a subscription where you get faster shipping on items, discounts and access to lots of movies and shows for example).

Tip: there’s a 30 day free trial on the subscription, meaning you can sign up for it, watch the movie for free and then cancel anytime! Sounds like a good deal, right?
