Do you consider cheerleading to be a sport?

Posted by: Foodiesoul

I think it is a sport because it requires strength, grace, balance, and agility, just like any other sport. What do you think?

Cheerleading was invented by men and anyone can play sports regardless of whether they're male or female so males have just as much a right to be cheerleaders if they want to!

In my opinion cheerleading is a sport but these pictures are not of real cheerleaders. These pictures are the stereotypes. I am currently a varsity cheerleader as a freshman in high school and we won 5th place at nationals and 6th in worlds (BIG deal). I can say from experience cheerleaders work very hard at what they do and it is not easy by any means. I have ben hurt countless times and have still competed. You all may be saying big deal she got hurt and jumped around for 3 minutes. Not true with a hurt back and ankle i had to life people in the air, tumble, cheer, and jump. The work and strength it takes someone to throw and catch and toss and lift an actual person in the air is crazy. There are certain requirements for a sport to be considered official and cheerleading passes all of them, yet thanks to the stereotype that people have created people still don't believe it is truly a sport. So unless you have tried it do not try to tell me or any other cheerleader that cheerleading isn't a sport because you will be proven wrong
