Cheerleading is a sport, that requires great physical strength

and dexterity. Cheerleaders not olny cheer for their team, but also

perform jumps, stunts (lifts), and tumbling (gymnastics). There are

three types of cheerleading:

School Cheerleading/ College Cheerleading- Athletes must try out

for the squad. If they make it their main focus is to support their

school's team, and promote school spirit.

Rec. League/ Association- These athletes do not try out for the

squad, the sign up at a local recreational association, such as the

YMCA. They cheer for other sports teams in their association They

sometimes compete.

All-Star cheerleaders- These are athlete that cheer at

cheerleading gyms. They do not have to try out to make the squad.

These athlete do not cheer for a sports team, but instead, their

sole focus is to compete at competitios, and build skill.

Both girls and boys are cheerleaders, and gender makes no

difference. Some of the best cheerleaders out there are male.

Cheerleading is a sport, and the things they do are just as hard as

any other sport.
