And thats all I got for now Sending good vibes y y y y , y Controversial questions about cheerleading, from uniforms to athleticism, have surfaced in news and headlines. But the real question is should cheerleading be considered a sport? Cheerleaders would argue that it is, in fact, a sport. However, I disagree. Though cheerleaders endure after-school practices and even participate in cheering for their team, one must carefully evaluate the definition of a sport. A sport can be defined as an activity that engages in competition and follows rules accordingly. Cheerleading is not commonly considered a sport because of the inability to compete against an opponent. It is an activity solely dedicated to entertain and motivate the crowd during sports events. One of the most important requirements of a sport is to compete against another opponent, not just cheer to support your team.


When you think of a cheerleader, you might think of a girl shaking her pom-poms, shouting at the top of her lungs and cheering for the home team not competing against an opponent. Though some schools and universities participate in competitive cheerleading, the majority of cheerleaders only root for their team in the hopes of the team winning a game. According to the, statistics show that only 15 percent of the cheerleaders in the United States compete; therefore, cheerleading should not be considered a sport. Cheerleading, however, can be defined as an activity that involves a physical act of stunting, dancing and tumbling. The athleticism of cheerleaders is unquestionable. To perform their routines, cheerleaders are often spotted doing flips in the air, lifting people from off the ground and some even do backflips. Statistics show that more than 80 percent of cheer athletes have been injured during practice, according to the ThinkQuest Library. This proves that cheerleaders have the tenacity, strength and flexibility of any other sportsman. However, since only the minority of cheer squads compete, it would not be ideal to classify cheerleading as a sport. For now, cheerleading can be fairly classified as an activity, instead of a sport.
