Transcript of Is CheerLeeding a sport?
Cheer leading requires all the same things as other sports must have like
Competitive cheer leading is directed by a coach, just like other team sports are directed by a coach or staff. The coach will direct the routines, supervise the training, and motivate the cheer leaders.
There is no question that competitive cheer leading is a physically demanding sport. Teams incorporate elements of dance, tumbling and gymnastics to create performance routines for competition.
For an activity to truly be considered a sport, it must involve competition against others. In competitive cheerleading, squads compete against each other in a head-to-head fashion and are evaluated according to a standardized set of rules.
Why it is a sport?
Cheer is just as athletic and dangerous as any other sport- maybe even more! Cheer leading also follows a sports guidelines, a physical activity, that goes against or with an opponent governed by rules and conditions in which a winner is declared. Competitive cheer takes a lot of hard work, dedication, and training. So it should definitely be considered a sport!
Training for competitive cheer leading is as tough as it is for any other competitive sport.
