In what year did Cheerleading officially become a sport?

It became a high school sport in 1972. At that point, cheerleading became more athletic and challenging as coaches at cheerleading camps pushed the girls to try more acrobatic moves. In 1999, ESPN (the cable sports network) officially declared it a sport and began showing the national cheerleading competitions that were taking place around the country.As of the early 2000s, as many as 20 different high school organizations declare cheerleading as a sport.
