Transcript of Cheerleading!
Why is Cheerleading the best sport?
Cheerleading is the best sport because it takes several key components: dedication, determination, time, effort, lack of fear, passion, stamina, endurance, and be physically fit, etc. While most athletes are lifting weights and throwing around a ball, cheerleaders are tossing each other around hoping nothing goes wrong. Most athletes wear padding and have helmets, but cheerleaders fearlessly throw, or get thrown, in the air only hoping someone is there to catch them. Not only does it take a toll mentally but it is a very physical sport. So physical that it has been the sport holding the most injuries for several years. Cheerleading is not just girls in short skirts with pom pom getting the crowd excited, it is life or death.

It all started at the University of Minnesota in 1903. When the team was created the were not cheerleaders but the "yell squad." Two years later, Texas A&M created their own"yell squad." Texas was known as the "The Cheerleading State."Originally, cheerleading was an all male sport but women began participating in 1923 and took over the cheer world during World War II. This is when stunting, tumbling, and props were incorporated into cheering. In the 1980's, the Bristish Cheerleading Foundation was formed and Cheerleading began its impact on the world.

One man Stunting
There are 4 people that make up one stunt group. The one in the air is the flyer, the two on the left and right are bases, and the one in the back is a backspot. Bases are to hold the flyer and keep the stunt stable. Backspots take some weight off the bases and catch the flyer. Flyers jobs are to stay tight, and, if by some mishap, they must always fall correctly. Falling correctly means staying tight and not flailing so your bases can catch you.
Parts of a stunt!
