Cheerleading! Thumbs Up or Thumbs Down? (Pg.4)

Cheerleaders yell cheers, wave pom poms and perform stunts.

Kidzworld recently did some trash talking about cheerleading. We called cheerleaders stupid and snobby. But a lot of peeps say cheerleading is the bomb and think cheerleaders get a bad rap. - Page 4

1 Just because cheerleaders were popular at one time and snobs, everyone generalizes! It's not like we come out and say that everyone that is in soccer is an idiot! That's just not right! I do have snobby friends that are cheerleaders, but reality will hit them in the face. You don't need to let people live their own lives and stay away from making kids feel under appreciated and weak! By the way... I AM a cheerleader! And going out with the receiver of the football team! HA! How's that for school spirit!

1All cheerleaders are not dumb and snobby. I should know. I was a cheerleader since the third grade and still am one. Cheerleading is a sport, for the simple fact that you have to work as hard like any other sport. You have to pratice 24-7 like anyone else. Being on the squad is a great way to meet new friends and people. You go places and compete. Everyone likes a good cheerleader and a great cheer squad. We help the needy and little kids - well I know my squad does. So before you get to judging us, think twice and really take the time out to get to know one of us or even all. Trust me - we are not how you may label us.

1If cheerleaders aren't dumb and brainless, then why don't they put some clothes on! They expect people to take them seriously but grade 'c' isn't that hard to get! All of the cheerleaders always seem to be the tall skiny pretty girls and never a girl with a waist.

1 I understand what some people are saying about cheerleaders getting a bad rap. No, not all cheerleaders are snobs, but sorry to say, a lot are. Think about it - the stereotype had to come from somewhere. I'm not a cheerleader, but I am in Advanced Placement classes and I have plenty of friends. You don't have to be a cheerleader to have fun in school. By the way, a 'c' average isn't good. It's just, well, average. A lot of people also think that cheerleading is a sport. Sorry, but cheering for a sport doesn't classify as a sport itself. Those wicked competitions, where cheerleaders do jumps and flips are cool. I'll definitely admit that, but at schools cheerleaders basically just say "GO GO GO!" Another thing, most people go to games to watch the games. The football players are just a little bit busy on the field to worry about what the cheerleaders are doing. Especially when they cheer when the opposing team has the ball. Your yelling isn't encouraging them to do anything. At my school, the only people that like cheerleading are the cheerleaders themselves. That's why they've gotten pencils thrown at them. I don't know how your school is, but at mine the cheerleaders totally fill the stereotype. They're pretty, popular, stupid, and even have the football jocks for boyfriends.

1 Cheerleading is totally awesome. It is tough work being stiff, lifting people and holding smile.

Are You a Cheerleader?

  • Yeah, I'm the cheerleading captain.
  • No, I wouldn't be caught dead waving pom poms in the air!

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.
