Im not a competition cheerleader, just a rehular old school cheerleader but I wish my school did competition cheer. From the videos ive seen there is so much work you have to do. And if anyone says cheer isnt a sport I prove them wrong on so many levels!

Jest compete because you know you can be successive, who cares if people don't  think cheerleading isn't athletic. I do think cheerleading is athletic though.

Thanks! You're right. Guess I'll just use what they say as motivation to try harder

Cheer leading is athletic, just not a sport. 1. Nobody scores. 2. There is more than two teams competing. 3. It is judged by people not by facts such as scoring a basket in basketball or gaining a touchdown. 4. I snowboard and it is judged the same way as cheerleading and I do not think of snowboarding as a sport. 5. Cheerleading is a contest because you are CONTESTING for the judges favor. 6. The score cheerleading as the would a dog show. Scores 1-10.

Cheerleading is an official sport and yes we get scores that what a cheer competition is honestly it takes way more skill than a lot of sports

I used to compete in and out out high school! Don't listen to what ppl say... They have a right to their opinion and you have the right to ignore them! You train for competeing just like any other sport.... Forget tha haters

You do flips, you toss eachother in the air and catch, you do human pyramids - yeah, I would say that makes you an athlete

Yeah, cheerleaders are athletes. It's a sport. However, even though golf is a sport, I don't think golfers are athletes

Yea I agree I never thought of golf as a sport either...how athletic do u need to be for golf? If your out a shape don't worry rent a golf cart man you dnt even have to carry your clubs if you don't want to lol

Gymnastics is very athletic!!!! Tho if you took gymnastics out of it then cheerleading would be more of a loud amateur type motivational dance team and wouldn't be very athletic...so yea its athletic because it includes gymnastics

People who keep saying u are athletic don't know what they are talking about very few are athletic on the teams and the ones that are do gymnastics cheerleaders is not a sport oh you can kick over your head women are naturally flexible and for you to do a handstand thats.nothing throwing someone up doesn't require strength and the pyramids are not even close to hard you have alot of ppl doing it the most athletic thing yiu do is a roundoff and only the really goods one do and thats not hard either parkour is 1million times harder than cheerleading

17 Jan
Evan u hav a lot to learn number 1 women are NOT naturally flexible we were not born with the ability to do the splits or to "kick high" 2) if handstands were easy everyone could do thm tho where I'm frm cheerleaders dnt do handstands 3) gymnastics is indeed athletic as well as an olympic event where I come frm cheerleaders flips on th ground and in the air.. turn cart wheels and perform back flips 4) have you ever done a pyramid? 5) I dnt care if you call it a sport or a competition or even a...

Where I'm frm they all do gymnastics its apart of cheerleading just like forms are a part of martial arts
17 Jan
And I dnt even like cheerleading!!!! but I do love martial arts ...
17 Jan
Not even close to martial arts in cheerleading its short they don't do long term its not like martial arts parkour or breakdancing they require alot of strength endurance cardio and is very long term by comparison have you seen pro martial artist s pro parkour and breankdancers perform
17 Jan
I have seen Parkour people walk doibg a handstand for 20mins and I have seen breakdancers do a 90 90 and martial artist do 1420 now that is hard

It takes as lot to be able to do all of those jumps and flips. Most people can't do that at all, I'd break my neck! Keep your head high and fcuk what people say. Do you girl!
