so next year i think im going to be a flyer but im not 100% sure.How do you figure out what position your going to be?
Most of the time, it’s based on body type and skill. Look to see what other girls are on the team, if a majority of them are taller/’bigger’/commonly a base, then there is a large chance that you’ll be flying. If there are a lot of girls your size who are also skilled in flying, then I wouldn’t be sure. It’s pretty much all just based on your teammates.
does every high school cheer team go to The National High School Cheerleading Championship?
No. They first have to compete at sectionals/regionals, state, etc. They then compete at Nationals only if they have done exceedingly well at all area competitions (usually meaning they got first).
Hi! Love your blog! I am on a high school cheer team, and this is my first year cheering. Ive been working on my backhandspring for like 6 months, but im too scared to do it without a spot. Help? I know i have it, but the second someone steps away i freak out and freeze. Thankss! :)
Thank you, that means so much :)
I have answered plenty of questions about mind blocks/being afraid to stunt or throw a skill/etc. I’m sure if you just scrolled through my page just a leeeetle bit you’d find tons of different answers to questions exaclty like your own. I’m sorry! :)
Is cheerleading still worth it if your getting more flexible but you still have to stretch a lot?
Of course it’s worth it! Cheerleading, along with every other sport, takes hard work and dedication. You’re always going to have to keep stretching. Even the most flexible cheerleaders in the world still stretch everyday!
Follow please :)) I love your account!
Thank you so much, that means a lot :)
What do I so when I can't do Cheer but miss it soo much
Umm, what I usually do is just stretch or watch cheerleading videos on Youtube! If that’s what you were asking..?
If there's person of my cheerleading squad that very flexible. Like she has both of her scorpions, heal stretches, her right scale, and she has a good bow and arrow. She almost has her needle too, but they won't put her up. She's an amazing base, could that be why? Or could it be because she's not really skinny..?
It all depends on the team. I’m the same way, I have both heel stretches, a hyperextended bow and arrow, and decent scorpions, but I haven’t flown since I was 11. Most of the girls on my teams are super short and small, and are much more suited to fly than me. It would simply be unfair to have a girl a foot shorter than me, and 20 pounds lighter to base me. I think the same thing could apply to that person on your team. Also, it could just be that she’s simply an amazing base!
i REALLY Want to be a cheerleader,but is it worth the wait of becoming flexible enough?
I think it is, but it always depends on the person of course (:
I'm a senior guy in high school and I'm looking for tips on my standing Arabian and my round off spring layout. Do you have any tips.
Personally, I don’t know if I’m the best person to give you advice on those skills considering I dont have them. I am so sorry!
Maddie Gardner? who would win a wrestling match her or a 150lb guy?
Maddie Gardner all the way! She’s my idol <3
Would it be too late to start Cheerleading when your a sophmore?
I don’t think so! I know a couple of girls who just joined the team and they’re going into their sophomore year. They’ve never cheered before but they seem to be doing well! It’s in your personal opinion, of course.
