THE POWERED ATHLETE PROGRAMME
Want to become a Powered Athlete for the 2022-2023 season? Read this post to find out what's involved and find out how to apply!
What is a Powered Athlete?
A Powered Athlete is a brand ambassador for Power Nation Cheer. These athletes are passionate about cheerleading, and share Power Nation’s core values, celebrating the creativity, individuality, and diversity of the sport. Being a Powered Athlete is about more than just posting on social media. It is about championing the very best of our sport, and working with Power Nation to create a diverse community of cheerleaders from around the world who connect with one another based on shared passions.
This year we had 20 Powered Athletes from across the world, all of different ages, who represent the very best of the sport. Whilst being a Powered Athlete is not about your ability as a cheerleader, it is about your passion and dedication to the sport. Because of this, our 22-23 athletes included some of the most talented athletes of all age groups, with 15 of these athletes competing at Worlds and the Summit.
What do I get/receive as a Powered Athlete?
If you are selected as a 2022-2023 Powered Athlete, you will receive lots of gifted PN apparel items, an exclusive discount code to use on the PN online store, and will have the opportunity to meet with the brand and other athletes throughout the year.
Throughout the 2021-2022 season we sent our Powered Athletes items such as t-shirts, water bottles, jerseys, a bespoke crop set, and lots more! We hope to be able to send our 2022-2023 athletes a similar range of exciting and creative items to help them #POWERUP this season.
What is expected of Powered Athletes?
Powered Athletes are expected to post a minimum of 1 main post and 2 stories per month in their Power Nation kit (wearing/using the items you have been gifted, any PN apparel you have bought using your discount code, or bespoke PN teamwear if your team works with Power Nation). We will never dictate what you have to post or say, but just encourage you to be creative with your posts, and to try and reflect the PN brand identity!
As part of the PN team, Powered Athletes are vital to the diverse and positive community we are creating at Power Nation. Most importantly, Powered Athletes are to champion the values of creativity, kindness, individuality, and diversity that we hold at Power Nation.
How do I get to meet and know other Powered Athletes?
We always invite our athletes to come at meet with Power Nation at events at which we’re hosting a pop-up shop. This also gives athletes the chance to meet one another in a safe and comfortable environment! This year our Powered Athletes also held a group chat where they got to know one another.
