I was in this sport in grade school and some of hs. I always loved the weight lifting, the dance moves, and gymnastics. I used to be in gymnastics as
well, so I know the two go together hand in hand.
Yes it is a sport. It requires running, gymnastics, weight lifting, and dance choreography.
It most definitely is a sport. I've seen more people fall on their ass, sprain their ankles, injure their knee, and unfortuneatly sometimes injure
their head. Can you say you see more injuries in football players or lacrosse?
Not as much.
There is much physical activity in this sport, there are rules to the sport, and they compete against other teams. This isn't a sport???
But I shouldn't waste my time talking to someone who can only spew out one liners and not back anything up except for saying "nuff said"...
And Banshee, some are silly, but some aren't. Cheerleaders need to be positive, and I think that rubs off on them when they aren't on the floor.
They are very cheerful , they like to have fun, and have fun doing it.
There is nothing wrong with that. I do too however, think "some" cl are silly. But not all.
