Can you do this? Rules: I am a cheerleader and I can guarantee that all cheerleaders would agree with me in saying that cheerleading is a sport and feels just as hard as any other sport. You compete against other teams and perform many hard stunts and tricks that a normal human being cannot. Ethos ("UnityAllstarsWorlds2012")

Cheerleading is a sport. What is a Sport? Counterargument Lindsay Freeman
Period 1
12/4/12 Is Cheerleading a Sport? There is a large list of rules given by the AACCA and USASF that control the level and difficulty of stunts based on the team for safety reasons. Stunting and Tumbling Requirements to be a Sport:
• It must be a physical activity which involves propelling a mass through space or overcoming the resistance of mass.
• “Contesting” or competing against/with an opponent is required
• It must be governed by rules that explicitly define the time, space, and purpose of the contest and the conditions under which a winner is declared.

Concession I agree with the fact that not all cheerleading teams are athletic and competitive. There are spirit cheer teams for that reason and they are considered a club. Pathos After winning a huge game or loosing a champion ship, every team gets very emotional. This happens in cheerleading too. When a routine hits perfectly after working on it for months, it is the best feeling in the world. (Ling and Ghadishah) (Dorning) Logos Cheerleading meets all of the requirements that define a sport, therefore it should be considered a sport. These articles are showing how cheerleading can be more dangerous than many sports. If the physical activity is that involved shouldn't it be considered a sport? Or this? ("if_cheerleading_was_easy") ("3553652") ("Is cheerleading a sport") ("jupiterforce_bowandarrow") Claim: Cheerleading is a sport based on the dictionary definition and the requirements of the Women's Sports Foundation.
