A SPORT. Consists of cheering, dancing, jumping, tumbling (gymnastics), and stunting. Not just where you yell "go team go". Where you go flipping through the air, throwing people 30 feet in the air. Compete in 2 and a half minute routines. Make football players look like pussys because we go flying 30 feet in the air,and if we fall, we don't have all those pads to protect us.
"You never know how strong you are until your holding a girl above your hand, by yourself, on one hand, thats cheerleading."
