The first part says an activity which cheerleading is because people take time out of their days to come to practice and make themselves better athletes. Cheer takes up alot of someone's life because school cheerleading is everyday after school for two of more hours for the football and the basketball season, and then also they have games every week that takes up all of their Fridays. Competitive cheerleading is two or more practices a week that are two and a half hours for the entire year. Competition cheer is an all year round sport that has no off season. This amount of time isn't including choreography camps or dance camps which are set dates in which the teams routine are made and they need up to five days for that and all the days are at least six hours long since the routines are so complex.
Cheerleading Tryouts We had cheerleading tryouts at the end of last year. It was one of the most stressful times of my life. One of my biggest dreams was to become a cheerleader. Before cheerleading began I had more free time, played other sports, and spent more time with my family. During the week of tryouts we practiced right after school from 3:00 P.M. until 6:00 P.M.
The Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders are one the most profound and well known NFL cheer teams today. They choose from the top dancers in the country to take in for their summer training and then 9 girls are eliminated and they are left with 37 of the countries best dancers to be a DCC. When you watch these young ladies your breathe just gets sucked right out of you and you have a loss of words. No wonder these girls are the top team and the most well known team in the country. These girls go through so many obstacles and long paths to become a DCC, but they said they would do it over and over again because there is no greater
After completing several weeks of demanding physical training, 1st Lt. Shaye Haver and Capt. Kristen Griest became the first females to ever graduate from the elite US Army’s Ranger School. Maj. Gen. Scott Miller, who spoke at the graduation ceremony, assured skeptics who challenged whether the women’s standards were lowered that Haver and Griest met all the standards that the men did. A few men were initially skeptical of Haver and Griest, along with the other 17 women who started out in the class, but once the females proved their extraordinary mental and physical might, gender was soon disregarded. No one can argue against the fact that women and men are physically built differently.
The Dangerous World of Cheerleading Over the past 25 years cheerleading related injuries have increased drastically. In the 1960s cheerleaders were only required to shake pom-poms, and the only stunt they were taught and would perform was jumping off the ground shortly. Their main purpose was to get the crowd to cheer along for their team: therefore, they were called cheerleaders. The coaches were not required to have a background in coaching or certified because safety was not a problem. In 2009, cheerleading became a gymnastic activity.
My parents and friends knew the struggles I was going through with soccer and they all said the same thing, “why don’t you try cross country?” My answer was the same each time, “I would never even consider doing cross country, that's not going to happen. Sophomore year started and again I put myself through the pressures of making a soccer team. That year, the program cut 21 girls and I was put on a team mostly filled with freshman. I was devastated by this because I had worked relentlessly for four months during soccer pre-season
After tearing her ACL Joy used her injury as motivation. Due to her motivation she is now a cheerleader at the University of Colorado. Joy is currently a sophomore working on a broadcasting major and pre-law requirement. Here at the university cheering is only volunteer, and the girls’ get no help. Joy practices between 2-3 hours a day, 5-7 times a week, which doesn’t include games.
I played against Ashley, a senior who was out last year because of a knee injury, first. She played really well, but I think that I won only because she was not warmed up yet. I played each girl, and I won four and lost four. I was unsure about whether or not this would be enough to stay on varsity or only play for the LaCrosse game. I remembered what my mom said earlier about loving me no matter what, and I realized that whether or not I got on varsity, I was still doing what I love and it did not matter either way.
Ashlynn was a role model to me and to other younger players on and off the field. On June 7, 2013, she suffered a season ending injury as she tore her meniscus and put her knee out of place. Ashlynn did not play another game that season and only one other person on the team had the ability to play her position. That player was me. I had no experience playing at the varsity level, but I had played this position every year while growing up.
My most favorite memory as a Indian Springs Cheerleader was our first home game in the new stadium It was very intense and it was a very long day, it was my very first time cheering at a game in like years so I was scared and nervous, I don’t watch football much so I didn’t know what was happening on the field but later on in the game I got the hang of it. This was great because I got to cheer with great team that night and hope that I get to do it again . Another favorite moment was the Pep Rally, it was my first time performing in the rally and I never thought I would be able to do something so cool. I think the whole team was nervous, but we still went out there and did our best. Another memorable moment that I had from being a cheerleader was, basketball season it was very intense to see and cheer at the basketball games.
This was shown last year. With one week left in the season, one of our top player was injured at the conference. I was the next player on the roster, and, after only playing a few varsity tennis matches during the season, was asked to transition from cheerleader to champion and play at the sectional tournament. I stayed after practice every day that week to prepare with one of the assistant coaches. I ended up not only playing well, but
