Cheerleading again is competitive, takes time, skill, commitment, and is truly a sport. Even though some people don’t consider cheerleading as a sport, cheerleading requires so much athleticism. I have to go work to perfect my state routine
After getting the routines all ready the teams compete against each other in competitions that can be local, regional, national, or worldwide. The national competitions tend be more and important and can also be shown on TV. Sideline cheerleading is the type of cheer done in high school. This type of cheerleading is not considered to be a sport. It is not taken seriously and there is not as much work put into it as competition cheer does.
There will always be those who question how much of Title IX is actually responsible for these changes. The simple fact is that society is growing toward the idea of accepting females as athletes. Two professors at Emerita, Brooklyn College confirm the belief that “Increased participation and skill development by young women along with society 's greater acceptance of female athleticism has made sport a vital part of the lives of many young women and their families” (Acosta and Carpenter). Title IX has been a major catalyst when it comes to societal acceptance. The law influences people to accept the idea that women should have the same opportunity involving athletics as men have; it creates a guideline for our society that will result in the adaptation of a new societal norm.
As a proud member of the Mercedes Tiger Band color guard and drill team, a lifetime goal for me would be to join a marching band and/or college dance team. Coming into high school I never thought my passion would be to be performing in front of hundreds of people every Friday Night for four years. It has become my passion and it brings me much joy to perform and have the time of my life on that football field. I have had an amazing four years participating in many extracurricular activities but I have found that my biggest passion is colorguard.
I try to be involved in anything I can to help the school, from being an active member of the tennis team, volunteering at several locations to give back to the world, and being apart of REBEL to help spread awareness and guide people to make better decisions. I believe that I would be an asset to the society because I always bring a positive attitude, always work hard to achieve my goals. I make every effort to assist my fellow students to do their best and will be a very dedicated person to any scenario National Honor Society brings in my pathway to
Cheerleading should get more recognition and be on the television more than when there's nationals. What these girls can pull off is truly amazing. Finally, cheerleading is most definitely a sport and it deserves more
The first woman to be a United States veterinarian is Dorothy Segal. She is one out of fifty-five women who stayed in college to be a veterinarian, even though her dean of students told her and the other female students to go back to the kitchen. Dorothy Segal changed the history of the veterinary field forever. Through her efforts to change the veterinary society in college and in the work field, Dorothy Segal showed that men are not the only ones that belong in the veterinary field.
I didn’t know back then I would come the tremendously frightening and honoring understanding of how much I could influence a young person’s life. In our town there is a youth football program we have come to know as “Cadiz Biddy Football.” They start in August and play four teams two times each, then go into playoffs to see who gets to compete in the “Superbowl”. Along with the football program is a cheerleading program.
Firehawk Cheer The Harding Fine Arts cheerleading team is going into it’s fifth year at the school and it’s second year of competing. It started with just four girls practicing in Ms. Burris’s room and has since grown to a team of eighteen on Varsity this year and a still-growing JV team. Last September, Varsity went to their first ever regional cheer competition. On their first year of competing, they were only a few points shy of qualifying for the state competition and stunned the crowd with their skills and dedication. This year, Varsity is slightly smaller than the year before with several dedicated alternates ready to take someone’s place at a moment’s notice.

The Girls Scouts Organization was started in 1912 during a time when the United States was still greatly segregated. The troops were made up of little white girls who wanted to sell the most cookies, and learn how to some day be great leaders. Years later in 1917, the first African-American Girl Scout troop was formed. During this time, Jim Crow laws were very much alive and #Black and White Girl Scouts were not allowed to integrate. In fact, when the Black girl troops of Savannah, Ga. wanted to go camping they had to drive about two hours to reach the nearest campground that would allow them to camp out.
Although the band she played in was established long before the 1940’s this is the time that they were noticed and became “popular”. It should also be noted that this was a time when the percentage of women entering the workforce began to flow as a function of the ebb in the male population that were fighting overseas. In the book Swing Shift by Sherrie Tucker says, “[for] [t]he fellas, it was a novelty to them to come see these girls play. They said, “Those girls play like men” (205).
