Cheerleaders yell cheers, wave pom poms and perform stunts.
Is Cheerleading a Sport?

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 5

1 I think cheerleading is pointless because:
1. Cheerleaders have to keep a special grade average to stay on the squad. Why don't they just get a high grade average and quit cheerleading? It will get them a better job in the future.
2. Where I come from, England, we don't have cheerleaders because we see them as pointless.
3. Cheerleaders aren't there to keep the crowd not bored. The actual game is there to keep the crowd not bored.
4. Cheerleading is NOT a sport. I don't care what you say, it isn't.

1Not all cheerleaders are bad! My sisters were cheerleaders and they're the smartest people I know! I may be a boy but some cheerleaders are cool to hang around and some cheerleaders could be snobs but most of them aren't and I respect that! I don't care if people call me stupid but cheerleaders aren't stupid. All they want to do is help the football a team and lift the spirits of the audience!

1If you ask me, I think cheerleaders are dancers who have gone retarded. Just because they can do stunts doesn't mean anything. The only average grade they have to keep is a C-, and that's easy!!

1I have a close friend from America and she has been here for about a year. She use to be a cheerleader in America and because of that she thinks that she is at the top of the world and people should do what the cheerleaders want them to do!

1 I do cheerleading and I don't think cheerleaders are lame or snobish at all. I think it's just in the movies where they show snobby, stupid, and lame ones. The truth about cheerleading is that it takes takes very hard work. When we do stunts we have to lift people and it's not easy doing that. I'll admit that you have to be pretty stong. I think cheerleading is a great, fun, and real sport.

1 I think cheerleaders totaly suck! I mean if you think that cheering is actually a sport you must be on something because a monkey could stand there and wave around those pom-poms and call itself a cheerleader!

I'm a cheerleader and i'm not stupid.We work really hard and I can tell you how: 1.We practice all year getting ready for competition 2.We do stunts and sometime the coaches put the heaviest people in the air often because they can stand up stright without wiggling around 3.We have to do Flips, Stunts, And simple jumps that you guys that are trash talking us can't even do That is my opinion.... CHEERLEADING IS INDEED A SPORT!!! THX for reading

Are You a Cheerleader?

  • Yeah, I'm the cheerleading captain.

The highest I go is about the middle of the pitch :p :p :p So basically you play more of an attacking right midfield? That's interesting.  I'm guessing you play a 4-2-3-1 ? I play RM and LM. I'm a Box to box midifielder though. I rarely go through to the middle and I play wide.
