From me being a Cheerleader myself you do not have to know how to do a Kart Wheel to be on a squad or to do Cheerleading. Some people only cheer instead of doing all of the flips. Actually I dont think you even really use a Kart Wheel in Cheerleading I never have. So if you are trying out for a squad and you cant do a Kart Wheel dont stress out most likely they wont even ask you if you can do one or not!

Is gymnastics better than cheerleading?

It's all up your personal opinion. My opinion basketball is way better because cheerleading way too girly for me (I'm a tomboy, hate girly stuff...eew...) Basketball there is a lot more action and running around. You need to have good strength, power and good shots for the ball to get into the hoop. It's epic. But if you prefer cheerleading, then that's fine because it's up to you. My sister prefers cheerleading because you need to be flexible and you need to be able to fly and flip your body around in the air while you rely on other girls to try and catch you. It's like their your safety net. So if you think you can manage all of that then cheerleading is for you. But if not, basketball. YOUR OPINION OK IT DOESN'T MATTER WHAT OTHER PEOPLE THINK..
