1 Hey Coach,
I am a guy and I am the captain of our school's cheerleading squad but none of the girls in the squad listen to me. What should I do?

Hey cheer_genius,

There could be lots of different reasons why the girls on your cheer squad aren't listening to you. Is is because you act like a tyrant and are super bossy? Is it because the girls don't think a guy should be the squad leader? Is it because you have poor cheerleading form and the girls don't consider you to be a good role model? Perhaps all the girls on the cheer squad are deaf?

The captain of a cheer squad is a postion which almost every cheerleader wants. It's also a position which requires good communication skills and strong leadership. I have no idea why the girls on the team aren't listening to you, but here's a few ideas that will help you become a better cheer squad leader.

  • Speak clearly when talking to your squad. Be both a good speaker and a good listener.
  • Be dependable and show up for practice on time.
  • Be a role model. Set a good example for the rest of the team.
  • Be fair. Don't play favorites to other members of the squad and treat every member of the squad with respect.
  • Be able to lead, without being bossy. It's not always what you say that matters but how you say it. Be tactful and respectful.
  • Talk to your coach. They picked you to be captain for a reason, so discuss your concerns with your coach and look for ways to improve things.

    Do you have a question on sports, P.E. class, 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.

    Cheerleaders - Silly Snobs or Real Athletes?

    • They're a bunch of snobs with fluff for brains.
    • They're real athletes who deserve respect.
    • Some of them are total snobs, but some of them can be nice.

    Of course we can! It's true that we're a little less strong physically, but we can. "Can't" means just that, we can't. And that's wrong. It's true we have to deal with all that physical pain (I can whine about it for agesss) and mental pain too. And that some of us cry easily. But that's because we feel pain! So although we are less strong physically as I said earlier, girls can also think up ways to surprise someone in a fight. And that's a good thing to do to someone who laughs at a girl and says they cant fight.

    Cheer-leading is a sport - most people think that it is not - but it is Yes it looks like they are just cheering on the football players - but their routines and being able to hold up girls over their head takes strength, and they work really hard to make everything look good.

    I liked cheering for the underdog, so I've always cheered for the Cavs. I'd like to see how this year's line-up goes, though our past best point guard left for the Celtics.  :/
