Being a cheerleader is more than strictly cheering on the sidelines, supporting your school or taking the competition mat, aiming to impress the judges and fans. You may not realize it at the time, but the benefits of cheer will help take you into the next steps of life in a unique and amazing way.
While cheerleading requires several physical skills and strengths needed to stunt, jump or tumble, there is so much personal development that allows athletes to gain practical life skills. These skills include discipline, teamwork and goal setting, all while instilling confidence. Cheerleading is greater than practices, games, community events and competitions that fill your schedule – it’s about developing the best version of yourself and allowing you to seek for your greatest potential.
