1. someone who has put their energy and spirit into cheers not to mention hard work and practice.
2. so you know one cheerleader and you think you know us all? that makes you ignorant. But it's ok I can't hear you over Metallica. Maybe you can try to increase your vocabulary to words that have more than four letters instead of throwing around the same immature things: slut, fuck, etc.
some people act bitchy, some act slutty, people aren't all nice and perfect, get over it instead of trying to blame it on the fact that they wear a uniform.

A cheerleader is an athlete.

A) They cheer in formation at football, wrestling, basketball, soccer, and baseball usually. These require many practices, usually early in the morning (before school), planning and supporting events, creative choreographing, a fit body (for tossing, catching, flying, tumbling, jumping, dancing, precise arm motions).

B) They perform a time consuming routine at competition(s). This requires a lot of extra time and money. Cheerleaders must not only make an original cheer, but also must have extensive stunts, a dance, and music.

Cheerleaders may be seen together often at school, but that is because they only have time outside of school working on cheerleading. Cheerleaders are not just "snobs". It isn't really known why cheerleaders get classified as "snobs", but it is possible that people are intimidated by a cheerleader's confidence. Many of the girls may have a boyfriend, which is because guys like girls who are happy and comfortable with themselves. Where does the label "slut" come from? If you don't have a thick head, you'd know cheerleaders aren't the only group that has its sluts. Cheerleaders must have a high GPA, and if it were slipping, it would only be because he/she is spending so much time practicing.

Cheerleaders' purpose is to connect the crowd with the game. The only problem with cheerleading is a crowd that is too lazy and selfish to encourage their team. (HEY YOU! Yell with your fellow cheerleaders! They are there to help YOU!)

Cheerleaders Do Not (usually):
- Chew bubble-gum, have blonde ponytails, blue eyes, and $daddy$.
- Whore themselves (this is because cheerleaders are encouraged to be role-models)
- Wear sluttish clothes. (Cheerleaders must wear skirts so often, why would she want to wear something like that when she's not cheering?)
- Include those who are chubby. (Cheerleaders need to be in good physical shape to do all the things required of them, and if they can do everything, then they can join.)
- Make fun of Goths, hicks, nerds, stoners, etc. (Just because a girl is a cheerleader, it does not mean she can't be a band nerd at the same time.)
- Put up with stupid people. (EX: people who make fun of cheerleaders, people who make stupid comments based on their own stupidity.
- Say, "Whooohooooo!" or scream.

Stop hatin'
Start lovin'


*throws a hotdog*

Cheerleaders: S-H-O-V-E, shove it,
(clap clap) up your ass,
You, Will, LOVE IT!...

Dumb person: Hey dude, did that guy just pick up that chick and look at her ass?

Dumb person 2: Yeah dude, let's try-out so we can try to get some pussy!

There are two types of cheerleaders
Type A: These girls (or guys I suppose) are very talented. They've most likely been doing gymnastics for a long time. They're extremley flexible, they can do flips and whatnot, and they're fun to watch. They deserve credit for pleasing the crowd. Unfortunatly, type A cheerleaders are brought down by...

Type B: These girls make the team when there are not enough talented girls interested to make up a whole squad. They are either preps who want to be "cute" in the little skirts, wannabes who think they'll become popular, or in some cases average girls who just dont have the talent for it. They are usually placed in the back where they cant be seen as well, they dont do anything impressive, and basically bring the team down.

Cheerleaders seem to be very defensive of cheerleading being a sport (as you can tell from this page). I could argue it either way. I'd consider it more of a performance but good cheerleading does involve gymnastics so I have to give them that.
They (being some who have written on here) also seem to have this idea that anyone who bad mouths cheerleading didnt make the squad or is jealous and couldnt do half the stuff a cheerleader could. These girls need to realize something, Everyone is NOT jealous of you. Thats exactly where the bad stereotypes come from so if you want them to stop, stop being so self centered. As for the not being able to do half the stuff a cheerleader can do, I'm a dancer and I can do half the stuff cheerleaders can do. And if someone couldn't do that stuff, SO WHAT. It doesnt mean they have to like cheerleading
girl: Whats your new routine like?
Type A cheerleader: Its really cool. I do lots of flips

girl: so what do you do in the routine?
Type B cheerleader: I, like, cheer duh! oh and I, like, try to do a toe touch but I cant get my legs past a 90 degree angle. That doesnt matter since I'm in the back and hopefully no one will notice me

An athlete that plays a sport because they enjoy it. There may be some who are sluts/stuck up/or preppy. That still doesn't mean that all of them are. At the school that I go too, the band and the cheerleaders support eachother because they don't really get it from anyone else.
I'm not a cheerleader and I don't hang out with any. I'm just a person with opinions.

Now, we have to look at the different breeds and requirements of a cheerleader. You have three main kinds:

School Cheerleader- does not require vast assortment of physical skills or talent. Mainly involves standing on sidelines hoping not to get hit by a ball, clapping, and singing along to the school song. Occasionally, simple stunts are attempted. Lowest out of all cheerleader ranks. Stereotypically stupid, skanky, and a bitch.

Rec-League Cheerleader- cheers for a community recreating league. requires more skill in dance and tumbling.

All-Star- top of the food chain, good teams require physical fitness, coordination, balance, teamwork, good grades, gymnastic abilitiy, flexibility, endurance, showmanship. Can involve innovative and/or dangerous stunts, dance routines, themed routines, etc. and can go up to competitive national levels.
Standing on the sidelines might not be a sport, but some professional cheerleaders are fantastic athletes.

there are many types of cheerleaders.
Highschool cheerleaders, u niversity cheerleaders, and all-star cheerleaders.

Highschool cheerleading is a club.
All-star cheerleading is a sport in where the athelete needs to do things common in other sports
I am an All-star cheerleader, ive broken my arm, leg, and wrist.
And it takes coordination, clearly

Can be bitches, but if you know them are great girls who can do well in school and are not sluts. They can have a good time without being out of control. They dont always date jocks because some jocks are jerks. Cheerleaders are cute girls that are so nice, if you dont like them your most likely jealous or an outcast and are not friends with them.
Cheerleaders are awesome!
