Answer #1

Hey, I’m a cheerleader. And Hun. It’s a lot of work. And No! cheerleading isn’t just about Round offs. and Back hand springs and Tucks. That would be really nice if you could do that. But, Mostly Jumps and Arm motions. Cheerleaders have to be perky all the time when your on the field or on the court. I cheer for Basketball and football. Ughz! And of course we’re not going to do back flips in a gym!.. On Compations Yes! Atleast 4 or 5 people need to know how to do jumps. But if your small like me. You’ll have a simple job of being a flyer. takes hard work though. don’t get me wrong but it’s better than a base or spotter. you know. Soo. Stretches you can do is most importantly. Leg stretches to get you musles use to it. Because, when I first tried out for cheerleading. It kicked my butt, because I wasnt use to those musles being use. I was a dancer. and cheerleader use totally different musles. but I still made the team though. But. Of course you can be a cheerleader. go to YOUTUBE.COM And type in cheerleading skills and it’ll be a vidoe of ALL you need to know!!! Hope I helped!

go to tumbling classes, you should get your back handspring, its the most basic thing. join a pop warner team if your new, no try outs for most of them. don’t be afraid to be loud. don’t be shy, and pay attention when you learn cheers. stretch and run every day. and have fun with it. :)

I do competative cheerleading. you can really make cheerleading no matter what skill level you are. MAKE SURE YOU KNOW THE BASICS:

  • Jumps (Toe touch, hurdler [or hurkie], and pike)
  • 1, and, 2, and, 3, and, 4, and, 5, and, 6, and, 7, and, 8 (BASIC COUNTS)

Try some tumbling classes. you can also search the web for some cheer sites. American Cheerleader magazine is REALLY good!! it gives great tips and such

Answer #6

look up cheerleading routines on the internet, learn one by practicing flexibility and stamina and then perform it in front of your squad at school. WARNING it will take a long time to gt your practiced routine perfect. it needs work.

Answer #7

Okay do NOT stretch cold muscels. run every day. then stretch. im flexible to but cant do flips so i chose not to do cheerleading. but still running helps and stretch every day.

Answer #10

just build up your arm strenghth and when you try you finally try a backflip make sure not 2 bend your neck or the whole thing will b ruined, and your most likely break your head off. backflips are important in the cheerleading arena so you should learn. flexibility is important too so you really should just stretch everyday and the rest will come in time. just work on the stretches and you’ll b backflippin in your sleep.!!!

I have been cheerleading for 12 years. on the more advanced levels tumbling is super important but there are lower levels to start at that dont require tumbling. try a local team you might have. cheerleading is a lot of fun and a great way to make friends. just jump right in.
