I do competition cheering, football,tumbling and gymnastics and I can honestly say competition cheering/tumbling and gymnastics are sports.. Football cheering is more so yelling chants to people and the fball players in a cute uniform-most of the time. For my town every grade u go up the outsiders get shorter

Competitve cheer yes.standing around waving pom poms? No. Anything you practice daily, requires effort and commitment is a sport.

football can be harder but cheerleading is especially harder when you break your foot and have to sit on the sidelines

Do you have an old tire you could start off practicing with? It helps you align your hands. I find it kind of hard to explain, but there are lots of great resources out there online if you search for them. :) To do a cartwheel stand in a lunge with your favourite leg (by that I don't mean you look at it and say "that's a nice leg" but that you favor that leg when doing things, you feel comfortable with it going first), knees bent slightly, and your arms straight up by your ears. Make sure your elbows are locked. You don't want to drop. Assuming you start with your right, reach forward with your right arm while kicking your left leg up at the same time. Your left hand should follow very quickly and as it touches the ground your right leg should also be off of the ground. You should pass through the handstand briefly and your left leg should reach the ground first with your right following it and you will finish in a lunge just as you started. Hand, hand, foot, foot. 1,2,3,4. There's a rhythm to it. Keep practicing and try to perfect not kicking around as you go.

Well I'm in 6th grade this year and next year in seventh grade I'm going to try out for cheerleading... The problem is I cant do a cartwheel or any of that! So I have to cram all of this stuff into just one year, all help is appreciated.
