cheerleading IS a sport im a cheerleader all of the hardwork we put in girls even break their bones from flying in the air or just basic tumbling they can also be disabled for life but the effort is worth it everytime i come home from cheer practice im always sweating...not a sport? I DON'T THINK SO!!!!

I was a basketball cheerleader 7th grade year (sideline) and I do not consider what I did a sport. Now competition cheerleading, I do consider a sport (like marching band they go to competitions) because they don't just stand on the side yelling. There should be regulations for both competition and sideline cheering, but sideline cheering should not be considered a sport. Sorry, but a sport consists of some kind of competition. Swimming= meets; basketball= games; marching band= competitions. Sideline has no kind of scoring or competition. Now don't get me wrong, cheerleaders are an important part of school spirit, but really aren't a sport

As anyone who has done it knows, Cheer leading IS a sport.
1.We try out for the squad.
2.We have to get a physical.
3.We have a coach.
4.We stretch, run, and do conditioning.
5.Tumbling and stunting.
...And yet our squad is a "club" at our school. It's ridiculous. We can't even get P.E. credit. If there's a way to get it changed I will be Sooo happy!

This is so true! Cheerleading is so much harder than people realize, I consider it harder than many other sports because depending on how practice goes, four times a week I get a two hour straight high intensity workout, plus even though I'm a flyer, I can't imagine doing extensions or scorpions or libs can be that easy for the bases all the time. Also, cheerleading takes so much hard work, I love that people are finally saying we should make it a sport!
