Cheer ; It Is A Sport !!
Transcript of Cheer ; It Is A Sport !!
A Cheerleader is defined as: a person who leads spectators in traditional or formal cheering, especially at a pep rally or athletic event.
Cheerleading consists of different parts, these include: cheers, stunts, jumps, dances, and tumbling.
Cheer Japan is one of the best cheer teams in the world. They have a Co Ed team and an All Female team.
Cheerleading originated in the United States, but now, there are now an estimated 100,000 participants scattered around the rest of the world in countries including Australia, Canada, China, Colombia, Finland, France, Germany, Japan, the Netherlands, New Zealand and the United Kingdom.
The main part of cheerleading is of course cheers. Cheerleaders have to learn various motions which are incorporated in the cheers we do.
In Cheers, each word has a specific motion (even if that motion is holding the previous motion for longer).
Cheerleaders mainly cheer for football and basketball, but they do cheer for other sports as well.
Stunts are an important part of cheering.
Just as any other sport, cheer has positions when it comes to stunts. Each stunt has to have four people in it: flyer, base (2), backspot, and frontspot (optional) -- the only exception are one-mans.
There are many types of stunts and many various of performing them.
Duarte High School has about 40 cheers.
These are NOT your ordinary jumps, they are much more than that.
Dances are mainly just in routines.
There are just like cheers in the sense that they have the same motions, however dances are a lot faster, they go to counts instead of words, and they are longer (usually about 45 seconds).
Tumbling is a fancy word for flips, however there are different types of flips.
There are: Round Off, Front Walkover, Back Walkover, Front Handspring, Back Handspring, Front Tuck(Punch Front), Back Tuck, Layout, Full.
WARNING: DO NOT try these if you have not been properly instructed AND are being spotted by a trained professional!
In The 6th CheerleadingWorld Championships(Hong Kong) in 2011, Cheer Japan took first place in Co Ed AND All Female with their routines.
Cheerleading began in Princeton University in the 1880s when people just wanted to cheer for their football team so they can win. It began as an All-Male Sport until 1923 when women were first allowed to join the teams.
IT IS A SPORT!!
The Very first cheer was “Rah, Rah, Rah! Ski-U-Mah! Hoo-Rah! Hoo-Rah! Varsity! Varsity! Minn-e-so-tah!"
by Johnny Campbell.
Being a Cheerleader
Being a cheerleader requires a great deal of dedication.
It is NOT all fun and games as people would assume it to be; it requires a lot of hard work, strength, tolerance, and motivation.
You must always represent your school in a positive way and never get into any kind of trouble (whether your in your uniform or not), or else...
With cheers you have to be very sharp and clean with your motions as well as yell out loud and clear.
