Therefore, I say that cheer is not a true sport. Many injuries happen during sports, including cheer. As said in an article on MomsTeam a website dedicated to sports, cheerleading holds the highest rate of catastrophic
That is very true but cheerleaders also compete so we aren’t just cheering for basketball and football players. In games we don’t just cheer we also perfect tumbling skills during time-outs and also perfect stunts, maybe being used for competitions that we were struggling with. Cheerleading also takes a lot of practice, it isn’t something that you can catch on to quickly. Overall cheerleading is athletic and requires skill, even if people disagree.
We’re here to show you the all-stars. The definition of a sport is an “activity involving physical exertion and skill in which an individual or team competes against another or others for entertainment” (Sport). So is it not considered a sport if a ball is not involved? Cheerleading is the second most dangerous sport under horseback riding (The Top Tens).
If the entire world was the same, including the ballerinas, they wouldn’t be compelled to wear handicap bags. Handicap are bags that are full of lead balls that weigh as much as your equality. As stated by the author of “Harrison Bergeron”, “Go on and rest the bag for a little while,”she stated. “I don’t care if you’re not equal to me for a while.” This statement demonstrates that everyone was not always equal.
Cheerleading is very fun and entertaining sport that can also be doubled as a very dangerous sport almost as more dangerous than football. Most people think of cheerleaders as being the girls who cheer on the sidelines at football or basketball teams, but it’s a lot more than just cheering at a football game. No one sees the behind the scenes actions of cheerleading, no one sees how hard we practice on a everyday basis. But in these long, hard working practices, there are injuries, some minor and some major. Cheerleading as evolved into a athletic and high skilled sport but the higher the skills reach, the bigger chance of getting injured.
It’s more of a competition because you have judges, and not referees or umpires. The judges base the score usually on how many mistakes a cheer team makes and the kinds of flips and tricks they do. The more mistakes they make, the less the score will be on the score sheet. But, if you make less mistakes and your flips are very good the score will be very high. Unlike sports, there is no season or schedule where cheer teams face each other to try and win.
The stunting that is done is the basic half and extensions and sometimes they have baskets and liberties. Sometimes, depending on the school and coaches, sideline cheering could be very
For many people, athletic games are stressful. Mental toughness takes years of learning. Without it, even the easiest games seem impossible. Do you feel like throwing up before games? Do you become nervous as you imagine everything that can go wrong?
The popular kid most likely thinks everyone will think they’re lame if they’re caught talking to the band kid. This is a cliché clique rivalry that has gone on since before my great grandmother was in school. Although in most movies the popular group of girls is classified as the “mean girls”, that is not always the case. Sometimes the popular girls are the ones who use their popularity for the good of others. At my high school, the popular girls are straight A students who attend church, do volunteer work, and are very involved in our school activities and organizations.
Simply put, if texting is your main form of communication, than the level of intelligence you are displaying toward someone who does not know you, would not be any higher than cave people who banged on stones to communicate thousand of years ago. Teen texting in and out of school can and has caused teen drama. School administrator, teachers and parents are sick and tired of all the drama that is cause by teen texting. Yes, you have your First Amendment right to text someone to “*!@k off!”
There is no halftime for competitive cheerleaders. Although, many Americans do not believe that cheerleading should be considered a sport, AMA members states that “cheerleading is as rigorous as many other activities that high schools and the NCAA consider sports. Adding it to the list would mean more safety measures for cheerleaders and proper training for their coaches.” Many people fail to distinguish the difference between school and competitive cheerleading. School cheerleaders are mainly targeted for getting the crowd involved with team cheers, and most importantly, pushing the sport they are cheering for, to a victory, which would not be considered as a sport.
Cheerleaders train as much or more than other sports. You still have to workout, run, and condition just as much as other sports. Being a base you need to throw your flyer and catch her in a few seconds. Misplace a hand and the flyer gets hurt. Being a flyer isn’t easy either.
It gets very frustrating, because they know what they are doing is wrong (whether its fighting other children, not listening to the teachers, etc.) but they do it anyways, they do not care. My personal opinion is that the YMCA has not served the hispanic children well overall. The teachers and staff are not as educated as they should be. They do not handle these children in the right way, they are very negative and disrespectful towards them.
Cheerleading is spared; it’s known that the lower limb injuries, specifically the ankle, are common in cheerleading do to the landing. Also, little support that an exercise program may prevent injury. Catastrophic injuries are on the rise and suggested on rule change and updates on regulations regarding stunt and surface restrictions seem reasonable. The National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) was developed in 1906 to protect athletes. In 2004, demonstrated that the physical fitness of a cheerleader is similar to that of any other collegiate sport by comparing results on the various physical test.
(Carter). Being discriminated or racial profiled isn’t something pleasant, it’s insulting and just a terrible feeling to be through. Imagine everyday; constantly being targeted by the police, and getting arrested easily and getting hurt or even die just because you’re not the same race as the authorities. Everyone thought they could trust the authorities to keep them safe but instead they’re scared and they’re not safe with them. Even and school kids could be bullied and be picked on, the teachers sometimes could be very biased too.
