Cheerleading should be considered a sport, amirite?

Top Comment

Cheerleading consists of dancing, stunting (lifting and throwing girls in the air), and tumbling (major part of gymnastics). You have to be physically fit and very flexible. It is really something you have to practice at. Competitive cheerleading is very intense and requires fitness and stamina. Only people that have not done it would say it is not a sport. Maybe you should read up on it and get the facts

My school doesn't consider it a sport...so they have to fundraise for their uniforms and the coach is a volunteer I think...and they have to meet afterschool I think =/

It's less of a sport than marching band. People in marching band actually have to have skill and a brain.

marching band is just a band with less musical action and more physical (showmanship) action and same for cheerleading and gymnastics

So to be a sport, the players have to be smart? hmm... What about football then? Are all those dumb jocks not in a sport? (not to say that all football players are dumb, but alot are.)

I love how the general majority of people judge cheerleaders. You don't know half of the cheerleaders on the planet. Cheerleading is a sport, especially competition cheer, and if you say it's not a sport you've obviously never tried it.

competition cheer is a sport. i will agree with you on that. cheerleading, as in high schoolers at a football game, is not a sport in the least.

Marching band? If you compare it with cheerleading, cheer is definitely more of a sport. In marching band you can, say, get hit by a trombone swinging the wrong way. In cheer you can fall from spinning around - twice - after you've been thrown up 10 feet and have to wear a neck brace for months, like someone on my team.
I'd say cheer is a sport.

No, because crossing the street would be a sport as well.
There's a lot of skill involved in cheer, you can't say there isn't. Anyone who doesn't believe it should go youtube a good routine.

When the entire team (squad, I guess...) complains about running ONE lap, then it's not a sport.

by the way. we never said it wasnt a really difficult competitive activity, we just said it wasnt a sport. dodgeballs a sport, but that doesnt make it difficult, and that works both ways

I think it's more aerobic than sport. As far as it being competitive then chess should be included in sport. Constantly using the arm and hand require coordination and strenth. :-P

(Tay ****): Again any physical benefit would be an aerobic.
When there is a physical defense, blocking a point or crossing a goal, and the object is to win and you have get physical then it is a sport.
Horse riding or racing would be a recreational game whereas polo would be a sport.
I hope that made sense. :-|

I think competitive cheer is a sport grouped with dance, and regular cheerleading is not a sport. I'm sure its very hard, and you have to be really athletic, but I have a hard time calling it a sport.
