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.
