Pro

I think that cheer leading is a sport. A sport is an activity involving physical exertion and skills in which an individual or team competes against others for entertainment. Both competitive and high school cheer fall into the sports category. Cheer meets the requirements of the definition of a sport.

Con

I believe that cheer leading is a sport. I think it is a sport because in cheer leading you compete against other teams. So it can be considered a sport.

Pro

Sometimes cheerleaders even do more work than football players. If football players came to a cheer practice they would be even more tired than they are at their practices.

Con

I disagree I think that if a cheerleader went to a football practice they would end up being more tired than the cheerleader.
