The Kidzworld Coach can help ya work out team problems or give ya tips and advice to improve your game - all ya gotta do is ask!

1 Hey Coach,
Our cheerleading squad just got a new coach. The only thing is she knows NOTHING! She never lets us stunt so we look horrible at games. The only thing she lets us do is cheers, some dances, and only like one person can tumble. We are also missing a base so we have to do shoulder stands all the time. Today we borrowed a base from another group but when we did a cradle, the flyer flew back instead of up, so the coach is probably never ever going to let us stunt. The only reason we did a bad cradle in the first place was that we hadn't done one for about two months! Everyone is almost about to quit! We have tried talking to the new coach but she doesn't listen - what should we do?

Hey nygurl,

Whenever a new coach takes over a team, it can be a big adjustment for both the players and the new coach. Your cheer coach is just getting to know your team and is trying to find out what your team is capable of. She's not letting your squad do difficult stunts because she's not yet confident that the squad is capable of doing them safely and properly. You may find this frustrating and feel like you're not being challenged or well coached. But quitting the squad isn't the answer. It's an easy way out and won't help your cheer squad improve. If your coach sees that you're hard working and dedicated, she'll be more likely to listen to your ideas and let your team try more challenging cheerleading stunts. Think about what you can do to make the rest of your cheer squad better by working with your coach. Encourage your cheerleading squad to stick together this season and give your coach a chance.

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.

    • 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...
