Why cheer leading should be a sport
"Cheer is a display of discipline, practice, dedication, determination, skill, and athleticism"
"Don't Say cheer leaders aren't Atheletes until you've been one" -unknown
Cheer leading is more than just a dance with stunts and tricks, it is also the thing that some people can show their true self through, just like lots of other (fill in the blank)
History and background
When women were allowed to join, it became about a 95% women
Use to be men only until a pretty long time until Women were allowed to join
Cheer leading (or Yell leaders what it used to be called) was only just basic dancing, until women joined and about after a decade, it became stunts and tricks instead of just dancing.
Originated from the United States
What is a sport?
A sport is a game, competition, or activity needing physical effort and skill that is played or done according to rules, for enjoyment and/or as a job
Cheer leading goes to pretty much all of it, you need physical effort and skill to do it. You have rules to it, and the right technique rules, and somepeople do it as a job. BOOM!
Cheer leading is an activity in many universities and collages
Cheer Leading is mostly women, but there can also be men in it, but its still mostly women
Cheer should be a sport, it goes to the 'rules' on what a sport is supposed to be. They are competitive, has physical effort and skill with technique rules, and some people do cheer as their job or enjoyment
So there, cheer should be a sport (did I convince you? I hope I did, some people are harder to convince though)
Cheer leading is an activity needing physical effort and skill
literally throwing people in the air
doing liget like splits and cool jumps in the air
Wouldn't you be tired if YOU had to throw people in the air and catch them over and over again?
Cheerleaders technically has rules
All sports has technique rules
Cheerleading 100% has technique rules, that I know
Some types of dances also have technique rules, just saying, so some dances should be consider a sport and others should be considered a Art
an accepted procedure, custom, or habit
Technique rules are an accepted procedure (and a little bit of a custom too)
Technique rules on how to hold them more stably and how to jump and where you are supposed to look and all of that
Cheer leading is a competition
They can get competitive when people say cheer is easy. (when it is clearly not, can you hold a 16-20 ish year old women or man and then throw them in the air and catch them again?)
There are also cheer competition against other cheerleaders.
cheerleaders can sometimes get very competitive with just a lot of other things
Cheerleaders work hard, I think that counts as competitive, they work hard to beat the other group of cheerleaders.
