There is no official date of when Cheerleading became a sport. This is because there is still much debate over its status as a sport
08 09 because it just became a sport!
Cheerleading is a sport bottom line.
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. It officially became a sport in 2003! However it still has not been officially declared a sport in the NCAA (college)....BUT YOU JUST WAIT BECAUSE COLLEGE CHEERLEADERS DO WAY MORE THAN ANY OTHER ATHLETES.... and watch the 2016 Olympics because it is officially competing in them ! -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Cheerleading became a sport in 1995 by the UCLA. =]
Yes it is..all cheerleading is a sport :) <3
There is no official date when cheerleading (or any other sport) officially becomes a sport. For most sports that is just their founding date, which for cheerleading is 1898. But most sports don't evolve the way that cheerleading has. Football is mostly the same as it was in the 19th century. However cheerleading has gone from 10 college guys with megaphone shouting Rah! Rah! Rah! to a highly athletic activity performing complicated stunts ang gymnastics. There is still much controversy as to whether cheerleading is a sport. ESPN shows high school and all-star competitions (however they also show the national spelling bee.) Some states have ruled that cheerleading is a sport, but not all
There are thousands of schools across the country that have cheerleading, but very few consider it a sport. 17 of 50 states consider cheerleading a sport
yes Miley's fav sport is cheerleading i have talk to her myself!!!
Both. Sideline cheerleading (the cheering you see at football and basketball games) is NOT a sport. It is a physical activity then. Competition cheerleading (strictly cheerleading competitions, self explanatory) is a sport in that setting.
There is very little cheerleading at schools but there is cheerleading at professional sport games
The definition of 'sport' is: "A physical activity that is governed by a set of rules or customs and often engaged in competitively." Cheerleading is a physical activity, cheerleading is governed by a set of rules, and cheerleading is competitive. Therfefore, cheerleading is a sport.
everyone has their own opinion on each sport. cheerleading is not considered a sport to some
It's a matter of opinion. I love cheerleading and definitely think its the best sport there is!

Cheerleading was invented at the University of Minnesota.
Cheerleading is not a sport
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.
Cheerleading is a sport. It takes a lot of practice and work to be a cheerleader. People just don't consider it as a sport for some reason.
I think Cheerleading is a very important sport. Because you learing and its making you important.
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
