1Hey Coach,
I'm starting cheerleading at my school and I hardly know anything. There are people at my school that say our cheer team is going to stink because all these new people are coming in - and I'm one of the new people! What should I do?

Hey broncocheer

Joining a cheer team for the first time can be a bit overwhelming (especially when the trash-talk has already started,) so it's understandable that you have some anxiety. You have to ignore what other kids are saying (even though that can be hard) and believe that you are going to be a valuable part of the team this year. The kids who are saying how much you guys are going to stink are just making fun of others because they don't have the confidence to join a team themselves.

Having a bunch of new people on your cheer squad shouldn't stop the team from becoming better or having fun. If everyone on your team has a good attitude and wants to work hard, then you and your team will do just fine. Good team chemistry is one of the most overused cliches in sports, but there is some truth to it. The best teams in sports aren't usually the ones with all the best players - they're the teams with the players that know their role and work well together. Believe in yourself, ignore the trash-talkers and have fun.

Do you need tips or advice on sports, fitness or health? to the Kidzworld Coach. Keep in mind peeps, the Kidzworld Coach isn't a doctor or a professional athlete or anything like that. He's just a dude who digs sports, plays 'em and knows a lot about 'em. You should always talk to your 'rents, a doctor or your school gym teacher before starting a new sport or a new exercise.

    Cheerleading - Is it Really a Sport?

    • Yes, cheerleaders are better athletes than most football players.
    • No, it's just a pastime for brain-dead, snobby girls.
    • Of course it is
    • Who cares...

    It's definitely an American thing - here in Australia we have like no Cheerleaders or Cheerleading groups. I think it's a sport but I'm not really into it. I think any girls or boys can do it. :3
