When we are just standing on the sidelines and yelling you might not consider that a sport, but when we are tumbling or stunting it definitly is. Cheerleaders put a lot of hardwork and dedicaton into it. I think if all the boys quit football to cheer they would call it a sport then. I do think that it's true because they are always praising over boys. We do alot of tumbling as you know, the oympics decarled it a sport, it shows life values, and it might possibly be in the games in a few years.
They might correct people when they make mistakes, but think of them like a coach. For instance, if a player during a basketball game travels the coach has to correct them and teach them the right way to play and as a punishment the player gets taken off the court. The same way goes with beauty pageants, if an individual says or does the wrong thing, the judges have to correct them and take points off their
I have witnessed it firsthand. As being a member of a team I could see the tension building up whenever it was the time for a match with the opponent team. The smile and pleasure seem to vanish in the field when faced with a serious match. The pressure of winning makes the children fight with one another and even the parents start to act immature over some petty issue. The core values of sports have been entirely lost ever since the idea of winning has taken over our generation.
You should never tell people when they are wrong but give them guidance in order to lead to up to the point where they find out that they are wrong. He is also saying that by not telling them they are wrong, allows them to self-evaluate themselves and see what they need to correct. It’s basically not allowing them to take the easy way out by not telling them. From a business perspective, if you are influential to the entire team then it is possible the team will come out on top because it will allow them to want to be better in
Today, however, high school sports’ competitiveness and especially their importance have increased exponentially from the past. The intensity is so much higher than it used to be, no matter the age or sport. Coaches have become more serious and determined about developing their athletes to what they believe is their fullest potential. Another thing that has changed is that some parents feel the need to be their child’s coach off the field by adding their own training and advice. When it goes like this we start to feel like school work along with other activities have to make way for sports.
Jake New provides us with a statement validating how much time and effort is put into sports, “Most college athletes say they spend as much or more time on sports during the off-season as they do during the season, leaving them little time for common college student activities like studying, internships and part-time jobs.” (New). Cheerleaders should not be categorized as anything less when the same amount of dedication is put into the sport. These are not all of the reasons that could be argued when debating if cheerleading should be classified as a sport or not. Some other points that could argue cheerleading to be a sport are maintaining good grades, wearing a uniform, and performing in front of judges to determine if you have the ability to be a cheerleader. This is an argument I do believe that will take place in future debates.
Men and women have grown up in a world with the mindset that women know less than men when it comes to sports. They have grown up with the ideas that, if someone is a woman she cannot train a man or do a man's job. The NFL has just made a difference in sports today with the first female assistant coach, yet there have been negative comments about that decision. Female athletes get vulgar tweets and other comments sent to them every day. It is extremely rare that a female athlete is held to the same standards as a male athlete.
