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.
