Led by perennial UAAP cheerdance champions University of the Philippines Pep Squad, the Philippine cheerleading team executed different routines during a send-off event for the 6th Cheerleading World Championships Sunday at the UP Gym. The world championships are slated in Hong Kong on November 26 and 27. This is the first time that the country will send delegates to the competition. In 2009, the UP Pep Squad did not push through to the competition because of lack of funds.
Aside from the UP Pep Squad, the Philippine team will also be composed of members of the Centro Escolar University and Polytechnic University of the Philippines cheering squads.
