Cheerleading is a sport, that requires great physical strength and dexterity. Cheerleaders not olny cheer for their team, but also perform jumps, stunts (lifts), and tumbling (gymnastics). There are three types of cheerleading:

School Cheerleading/ College Cheerleading- Athletes must try out for the squad. If they make it their main focus is to support their school's team, and promote school spirit.

Rec. League/ Association- These athletes do not try out for the squad, the sign up at a local recreational association, such as the YMCA. They cheer for other sports teams in their association They sometimes compete.

All-Star cheerleaders- These are athlete that cheer at cheerleading gyms. They do not have to try out to make the squad. These athlete do not cheer for a sports team, but instead, their sole focus is to compete at competitios, and build skill.

Both girls and boys are cheerleaders, and gender makes no difference. Some of the best cheerleaders out there are male. Cheerleading is a sport, and the things they do are just as hard as any other sport.
