What is a cheerleader?

Contrasting to popular belief, cheerleaders are NOT girls who shake pom poms and yell "go team go!" They are athletes who work as hard or harder than other sports and are very talented. They stunt, tumble, jump, and prove themselves in the two minutes and 30 seconds of the routine.

Compeitive cheer or All-Star cheer is a athletic sport. that you have to put hours of training in to. Some people do 20 or more hours of training a week and thats just for the chrograghy. That doesn't include stunt classes,jump classes,tumbling classes or contest and meets.
