Starting in May of 2011, the NCAA is making CHEERLEADING a national sport. Cheerleading is the SPORT in which the team or SQUAD members, CHEERLEADERS, participate in multiple activities such as JUMPING, TUMBLING, STUNTING, and of course, CHEERING. There are multiple types of complicated jumps, hurdlers and toe toe-touches to start, that require immense amounts of flexibility. Tumbling is the gymnastics portion of cheerleading, consisting of tucks, handsprings, and more. Stunting is by far the most dangerous aspect, involving two BASES and one BACKSPOT throwing a FLYER up in the air to do various tricks before catching them again. This takes a great amount of strength, trust, and training by the cheerleaders. They can either be males or females, and they compete in various competitions worldwide. A cheerleader must be a strong, flexible, dedicated, and trustworthy person in order to be a member of the cheerleading squad. Although stereotyped, these members of society are actually highly respectable and turn out to be extremely successful. Examples of famous previous cheerleaders are: Kelly Ripa, Dakota Fanning, Sandra Bullock, Halle Berry, Meryl Streep, Cameron Diaz, and Sally Fields. You go girls!
It's hard for a cheerleader to be humble, when they can jump stunt and tumble.

A cheerleader has spirit, and does cool faces when they dance called "facials".
