Doing a report on Cheerleading and if it should be considered a sport. As a college Cheerleader from a competitive college that are ranked National Champions through NCA I believe that it is a sport since I know the hard work and dedication you need for it. I know that my team personally goes through lots of conditioning, and weight training to be the best. Having considered that we do just as much workouts as all the other sports on the college campus I thinks its a no brainer. I would just like to know other peoples view on the matter.

To be good at a sport it requires a fair amount of physical ability or skill, with a good amount of practice. I do acknowledge that cheerleaders practise, but learning routines and yelling things into a crowd, I would not consider that a sport. Cheerleading does not require any strategy, you're essentially just trying to get the judges to think that your stunts are better than the other sides.
