So.. What is All Star cheerleading?
All star cheer is no longer the type of cheerleading we are used to seeing on the side lines of various sports, it does not consist of mega phones or pom poms or cheering on other sports because it is its own sport and lives soley for the sake competition. A mix of elite tumbling, acro gymnastics, dance and jumps are what make up jam packed 2.30 minute competition routines that a team can perform at up to 10 different competitions in a single year. The more advanced your team is, the higher the division your team will be placed in ( level 1,2,3,4&5) with 5 being the senior elite.The more elite the team is, the harder the competition will be at local, regional, national and international championships.
Cheerleading was born as an all male sport in 1869 at a football play off game between Princeton University and Rutgers University in Piscataway, New Jersey in Northeastern USA.
It was not until 1907 that woman joined cheerleading and began dominating it; this was due to the lack of males involved in organized sports because of WWI.
NFL teams began to organize their own cheer squads
During the 1980's squads not associated with a school or team and whose main objective was competition began to emerge
The National Cheerleaders Association(NCA) was formed and gave the name of 'All-Stars' to teams lacking school sponsorships
The US All Star Federation (USASF) was formed to act as a National governing body for All Star cheer; setting the standard set of rules and judging for competitions.
The USASF hosted the first ever Cheerleading Worlds.

Health and Social
I chose the Area of Interaction health and social education because that is the area where cheerleading mainly affects us. Cheerleading is a part of our culture, it originated here in the US and is an all American pastime. Most of our favorite childhood memories took place at an athletic complex of our favorite team; the birth place of cheerleading
"What is the difference between school cheer and All Stars?"
The difference between school cheer and all star is that all star cheerleaders lack a sponsoring school or sports team and only perform at competitions and not athletic events. What they do have in common is that they are both supposed to represent and set a good example for other athletes; eventhough All Star cheerleaders represent their gym and college/high/middle school cheerleaders represent their school and team.
The USASF Cheerleading world championship is where All Star cheerleaders come from all over the globe to the Walt Disney world resort in Orldando, Florida to compete against international teams from 60 different countries. A cheerleader going to worlds is like a gymnast going to the olympics.

Science in cheerleading
TEK 8.6 C-Newton’s Laws of motion 1
In cheerleading a body remains at rest or in motion with a constant velocity unless acted upon by an external force, thus covering Newton’s first law of motion. In a basket toss, a flyers base must exert immense force in order to throw her body in the air; the height she reaches depends on her weight and the force exerted by her bases. The flyer should fly to the air at a constant speed and direction until she crashes into the ceiling, causing her to fall back down; the reason why this does not happen is because of Gravity. The flyer will stay in the air until gravity pulls on her hard enough causing her to fall back down, the higher she goes the harder gravity pulls.
Sometimes a stunt group might find that their basket tosses don’t get much height due to an insufficient amount of force exerted on the flyer, making her unable to reach great height. The way to fix this problem is to have the back spot and perhaps front spot push up with the bases from under the basket. The force that the front and back spot contribute will allow the flyer to go higher than having just two people push her up.
