I would say it's a 50/50 toss up. Obviously cheerleaders and their family and friends think it's a sport. Many people in the past few years have come to see Cheerleading as a sport because competitive cheerleading has become so mainstream. However, many people who only think of traditional lead-the-crowd cheering, so not believe it is a sport
Cheerleading is great sport for kids. I used to do cheerleading and I had an amazing time. Most people dont think that cheerleading is a very athletic sport, but there's alot more to cheerleaders than screaming and jumping
Cheerleading is NOT an amateur sport, but everyone thinks it is. People probably think this because only girls participate in this sport most of the time. But the truth is, cheerleading is much harder than most sports. Like I say, "athletes lift weights, cheerleaders lift athletes."
Most people do not know that cheerleading began as a boys only sport when it was first organized. then girls started joining gradually, and it became what it is today.
ABSOLUTELY!! Cheerleading is way more complicated than most people seem to think. The average male cheerleader is 10 times stronger than a football player.
I would say that there isn't a definite percent, since a lot of people do not consider cheerleading to be a sport. It has been proven however, to be the most dangerous sport for female athletes. This is mostly due to the fact that cheerleading results in more serious injuries than other sports. Permanent back injuries are common as well as bone breaks, sprains, and muscle strains.
Cheerleading or gymnastics is the most dangerous sport and it has been proven
Cheer leading, probably.
