Just like baseball, football, and gymnastics the athletes get a workout and learn numerous lessons. In certain cases, cheerleading can be time consuming and stressful, which establishes cheerleading as a sport. The newly found sport discovered by NCAA is called STUNT. It is a competitive team sport derived from cheerleading. The sport “focuses on the technical and athletic components of cheer, including partner stunts, pyramids, basket tosses, group jumps and tumbling (USA Cheer).” If the sport is extracted from cheerleading,
Furthermore, around the time of me finding out my parents were divorcing, I was informed the amazing news of me becoming captain of the Selma High School Cheerleading Squad. Of course I was ecstatic, I attained one of my many achievements in life. In my perspective I was the greatest captain I could have ever been, I produced cheers, dances, and etc., did them on time, and also I created a bond between a group of girls that could never be destroyed. Unfortunately, dealing with responsibilities as captain and also going through things at home was a bit overwhelming. I came to practices and performances with
According to Kennedy Thames, a flyer with the Rockstar Beatles said, “If one person is missing from the team, then a stunt group can’t stunt, the pyramid can’t go up. There are three people under me that I have to trust not to drop me.” More than 200,000 high school and college cheerleaders attend offseason All-Star camps to improve skills. Today, 97% of cheerleaders on teams are women. Kenny Sampson points out collegiate cheer is based on crowd appeal and all star is based on skill-building. It is possible to think there’s only one good person on the cheer team, but it takes the whole team to hit a routine.
They said that it is one of the most competitive place to cheer at. They are a twenty time NCA National Champions. I know a girl that cheers at the University of North Carolina. Her name is Gabbi and I would like to be like her one day. She has one more year of college and she is a flyer I know her because her fiance was once my babysitter and he went to GW and then went on to play football for UNC my family still keeps in touch with Ryan and thats how I know her.
There were cameras all around, people cheering, and a panel of judges watching the athletes every move. The energy buzzing through the air escalates as the next teams step up to the mat to compete. Just like other competitive sports, cheerleading is a sport that is on the rise to international popularity. Cheerleading is a sport that contains organized routines that include elements from gymnastics, dance, or various types of stunts. The person that performs the cheer routine is called a cheerleader.
When I was 12 years old, I made it onto a cheerleading worlds team. Essentially, if my team got a bid, we would get to go to the Cheerleading Worlds competition at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Disney World. I am a part of the competitive cheer community along with 3.3 million other athletes in the U.S. alone. My teammates and I were ecstatic and could not wait for this moment to compete. Our team name was the Cheer Eclipse Comets.
It is super exciting to see the comebacks in the volleyball games, the desire to be super attentive to the game increase much more. The force of the serve of the girls was incredible, as well as the way in which they responded the play of the other team. I also really liked the encouragement that they gave each other with shouting and crashing their hands, despite this the team concentration was still very noticeable At first, FGCU controlled the set early on. Trailing 20-16, the Owls won four straight to tie it at 20 and then scored four more to take a 24-22 lead. Gulf Coast spoiled both of those set points for the Owls; At this moment my nerves returned because I felt that the girls were tired and that the rivals were going to recover the lost points but then they held off three more before Kennesaw State finally took the set 29-27.
If I backed out from the intensive class where we learned Physics and Math at college level, I would not have gotten As in those subjects in Ateneo and would not even be a Dean’s Lister last semester. More importantly, it was also during senior year when I found out who my real friends were. They never left me when I broke down because of my grades and told me to keep enduring and never cease praying. At first, I thought I would not graduate with honors because of my low grades in the intensive class, but in the end, I succeeded and I saw that it was a part of God’s plan to equip me for
When I first won the award it didn’t really affect me in any way, because at the time I thought that I was not going to pursue anything in the English field, until recently. A couple of months ago I picked up writing as a hobby again, and simply knowing that one of my past works was selected as best is truly inspiring to work even harder than I did before to create a new story. Another big accomplishment that I am very proud of is when I qualified to compete in the state competition for MathCounts, but unfortunately I wasn’t able to attend due to conflicts in scheduling. During my first year of high school, I decided to join a school sport, which I hadn’t done since I transferred to Burris in the fifth grade, and I earned a spot on varsity. This was a very big accomplishment for me, because one of my dreams growing up as an athlete was to eventually play on varsity and represent my team.
But I couldn’t run away partly because i’d made a commitment to my team but mostly because I was already in the air. Yep the big stunt, i’d done it a million times during practice and at the games but now it was real. Even though I was only in the air for about ten seconds it felt like a lifetime, but when I finally remembered how to breathe again I saw my mom she had a huge smile on her face and she waved at me. I would have waved back but I was in the arms of the best stunt group in the world all of the sudden. I forgot to mention that my stunt group were my best friends Alyssa, Kayela and Kandy.
