I'm a cheerleader and I enjoy it alot. All you have to do is believe that yu can do it. If you didnt make the team, maybe it was something simple that you did wrong and you need to work on. But dont let it stop you from trying your hardest !

you must not be a cheerleader if you think cheerleading isn't a sport. Dont believe me. Go to youtube and type in Cheerleading behind the beauty OR type in So you think cheerleading isnt a sport. Every cheerleader, IF YOU ARE ONE, should believe that it is a sport because of the things we do. Also remember ATHLETES LIFT OBJECTS, CHEERLEADERS LIFT PEOPLE !

ive been a cheerleader for 7 years now. Being on a pyramid is not hard at all, you just have to get used to it. At tryouts try not to get freaked out about it and you'll do GREAT !!!

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.
