1Hey Coach,
Hey, I'm in sixth grade and I'm pretty new to cheerleading. I have only cheered when I was little up until second grade. I need some advice, so if you will tell me what to do cause tryouts are coming up and I need to make myself into a great cheerleader so I can show off!

Jaci,
Whether it is cheerleading or baseball, the most important thing to do before a tryout is to be prepared! The first thing I would do if I were you, would be to talk to the cheerleading coach and ask them what kind of drills could you do to make yourself the most prepared for the tryouts. Try to do this as early as possible - like a month or two before tryouts. This will show the coach that you are serious about making the team and you have initiative.

Building a relationship with the coach is key. There is nothing wrong with a little sucking up. If coaches get to know you and like you, the more they will be willing to have you on the team and help you get better. Find out what is going to be tested during tryouts, and do your best to master whatever cheerleading move is asked - whether that is a cartwheel, a toe touch or a tuck.

If you are serious about being a cheerleader in high school or in college, make sure to attend cheerleading camps in the summer. That will teach you all the basics and you will meet tons of friends in the process! So make sure to keep practicing and, most importantly, have fun!

Do you need tips or advice on sports, fitness or health? to the Kidzworld Coach. Keep in mind peeps, the Kidzworld Coach isn't a doctor or a professional athlete or anything like that. He's just a dude who digs sports, plays 'em and knows a lot about 'em. You should always talk to your 'rents, a doctor or your school gym teacher before starting a new sport or a new exercise.

    No, it's not really a sport, to be honest. It's an activity which is quite sexist in my eyes.

    The guys on my team are like brothers that I never had! I love all my cheer boys! They work just as hard as hard or sometimes they even work harder then any guy on a football team.

    Cheerleaders don't lift weights, We lift people.. We don't get tackled but we get punched and kicked by our teammates. We don't have an hour long game to prove our skills, we have minutes. When we get hurt we can't be taken out, we keep going.. Does this still seem not a sport?
