Professional Cheerleading - The Ups

There's more cool things about cheerleading than getting to watch the games from the sidelines. "Being a cheerleader gives a girl confidence and polish. From the time a girl starts as a cheerleader to the time she finishes, there is a huge change in her poise and ability to present herself," says Sherri. "Cheerleading gives girls exposure to a wide range of people and contacts. They do a lot of charity work like with sick kids and the disabled. They can really touch people's lives."

Professional Cheerleading - The Downs

Tryouts for cheerleading can be tough because there are so many girls trying out and just a few spots available. Girls may think they're not fit enough or pretty enough just because they didn't make the squad. Many of the girls that try out were the head cheerleader in high school or college. Everyone thinks they should be the leader - but on a team of 30 girls this can't always happen.

Professional Cheerleading - Show Me The $$$

Cheerleaders show a lot of skin but they don't get shown a lot of money. Cheerleaders start out at minimum wage for their rehearsals, games and other appearances. Most cheerleaders have other jobs. The average career of a professional cheerleader is about five years - slightly longer than the average career of the players they're cheering for.

Professional Cheerleading - Junior Cheerleading

The bottom line? Having a fit body definitely helps if you want to be an NFL cheerleader. But, it's also important to know how to dance, take care of yourself and be sociable. Many NFL teams have junior cheerleading programs for girls between seven and 18. So if you want to get a start on a career in cheerleading, contact your nearest NFL team for more details.

    I think you should be you wether or not your tomboy or girlie your being you. You have your own style and don't let nobody change that because THEY don't like it it only matters if YOU like it

    This is such an interesting question.. I'll tell you why I think so. I am BOTH the biggest tomboy ever and the girliest girl. I think being either or BOTH is more in YOUR mind than in anything else - it's an internal feeling. Femininity is so personal. I always, always, always have my nails done. BUT they are Gel so they never chip and when I am climbing up mountains or pulling on my wetsuit to things that I find typically damaging to your nails - they stay perfect. So I am doing these rather "tomboyish" activities but my nails are awesome :P I wear a lot of dresses but that doesn't deter me from any activity, the key is shorts underneath. I don't wear make up, not usually but I do love lip gloss. One think I guess I think is important though, feel it. Remind yourself how awesome and unique you are, no matter what you wear - hold your head high and remind yourself you are a QUEEN. Not a princess, lame. BUT a queen! Good Luck, and I love all the practical tips everyone provided. Great job you guys!

    I'll say some stuff that 'girly-girls' do, and the stuff in the brackets would be things added by my best friend. Who is also very annoyingly sarcastic! -.- Paint your toes (get obsessed to them too, all of these girls are!), wear cute little dresses (don't mean huge ballgown style dresses, duh?) , or just fun-cute tops with jeans, maintain your nails (perfectly), take a lot of care about your skin, maintain it, cleanse, moisturize and exfoliate, and start doing make up. (Also, I would suggest to learn how to do a good hair flip, for some reason girly girls are like 'ERMAIGAWD' *flip hair*) Yes, my best friend is annoying but she's girly enough to be able to have a say in here. Here's a bit of advice from me, don't try to change your style because of what people might think or say, do it if you want to and if you feel comfortable with it. You are more than perfect the way you are, whether a tomboy or a girly-girl and it doesn't really matter what you are.

    Personally I think you should just find things you like and wear them without worrying about what style it fits in to. You should express yourself, not conform to other people's views/standards. :)
