a sport for competition season,
not a sport if cheering for football/basketball, etc.
competition: put together a strenuous 3-minute-long routine in which u have to pack in
1: several group jumps
2: many stunts
3: a dance
4: a cheer
5: many tumbling sequences
thats a lotta shit to pack into 3-minutes.
football season: have to get the crowd involved, pump up the team and be interested in the game the whole time.
It involves a lot of spirit and overly expressed emotions towards what is happening in the game
probably not as strenuous as competition season, which is probably why it's not considered a sport yet. however, it still involves everything listed below. and you have to memorize a lot of cheers and never-ever mess up in front of anyone, cuase that shit is embarrassing and makes ur team look bad
have to have gymnastics & dance skills
have to be flexible, strong, loud, and mentally organized
it isn't as easy as you dumbass people who dont consider it a sport think.
if u try it... THEN u will understand
there are so many aspects. u dont have to just run and hit people like in football, or a "real" sport.
it involves coordination and technique and strength, PLUS u gotta look good while doing it! SO HA! how easy is that?!
i'm on chicago allstars cheerleading and i practice 6 days a week, at least 3 hours a day. i go to an extra tumbling class so I can nail my full.
i am also in a "for-fun" stunting class
cheerleading is taking over my life
