Cheerleading a sport?

Do you think cheerleading is a sport? I do!

Answer #1

yeah I think it is

Answer #2

I think competitive cheerleading is . This is in my about me on facebook :

So yeahh I’m her , Laurennn . Dont say I “dont” have a life , cause I do . CHEERLEADING & MUSIC . Im going to nationals in orlando in Jan. come cheer me on !! I have been cheering for 5 years; football , competition, and basketball . Cheerleading to me IS a sport , and its my sport (: . Reasons why:

It involves constant and strenuous practice as well as being in shape in every aspect of fitness. Cheerleading involves every part of your body. Your abs have to be strong to jump high, legs and arms to lift people, endurance to make it through routines, coordination for dancing, flexibility in general, as well as shoulder strength and balance. And for those of you who say you dont get points in cheerleading, youre wrong! its a judged sport just like gymnastics and ice skating or whatever else you guys want to compare it to.
