Debate Round No. 1

first I will define sport

an active diversion requiring physical exertion and competition

http://www.google.com...:*:IE-SearchBox&rlz=1I7GPEA_en&defl=en&q=define:sport&ei=qgpeS8b_NIz8Ne2opPsO&sa=X&oi=glossary_definition&ct=title&ved=0CAkQkAE

From the definition listed it can be concluded that competitive cheerleading is a sport. Chher leading requires physical exertion and is obviously a compeition.

Thank you for posting your...Argument?

Well first off, your definition link is not working. It takes me strait to Google.

Secondly, just because there are pooping competitions does not make pooping a real sport. Even though it would take takes physical exertion and competition.

All you did in your augment was say what a sport is. My argument will not be long because there is not much I need to refute.

You did not say what kind of cheerleading, you just said competitive cheerleading. Most Cheerleading does not require that much Physical Ability. It can be simply yelling into the crowds. Concerning skill, I could do a clap and a little dance and it would be cheerleading. So it does not take skill to cheerlead, though it does take skill to do it well.

The Department of Education's Office of Civil Rights actually told schools not to include cheerleading
as sport. The reason is because then they would have to take either all the guys, or all the girls off the team.

I thank you for this debate.
