Is cheerleading more dangerous than hockey?

No not at all. In cheerleading sure you are at risk for some severe injuries but in hockey its pretty easy to get severe injuries.., let alone the fact that people are TRYing to hurt you. If cheerleading had a part where someone attempts to push them around maybe it would be remotely close to being as dangerous as hockey.. cheerleading doesn't have fights....nor getting hit into glass, nor getting hit by frozen rubber going at least 50mph LEAST.. So no... Cheerleading is not even remotely close to being as dangerous as hockey....

How has the cheerleading sport evolved?

cheerleading has evolved a lot of different ways. "back in the day" cheerleading used to just be easy things like dances and waving pompoms and doing motions with a blade position in the hand. (also bigger pompoms). now cheerleading can be very complicated and way more dangerous then it was requires a lot of technique and energy. cheerleaders used to do stunts by standing on thighs. now cheerleaders will stand on hands and will be tossed. so cheer is hard now then it was before.

So, YES it is! i definetly agree with that... cheer is way more of a sport than alot. if you don't like cheer, and don't think it is a sport, try it out, and then come and tell me.

Is cheerleading a deadly sport?

cheerleading IS a deadly sport. This is because of the way girls are thrown up in the air, the way they move, the way they catch/way they're caught. Say you were doing a full twisting layout and landed on your head YOU COULD DIE. Say you fell from a super hard stunt and you fall and isn't catch. So yeah it is deadly, and it is the 2nd most dangerous sport in the world so YES its also a sport. I disagree with the above answer. Cheerleading does involve some seemingly "death-defying" stunts. However, good cheerleaders are taught the correct way to perform those stunts and how to do them to minimize injuries. Just like in any other sport, injuries and accidents can occur. As a former cheerleader and current coach, I have seen and experienced a multitude of bumps and bruises, but it's all a part of what we do and what we love. Football players take the big hits and shrug them off; cheerleaders do the same, but without the benefit of helmets. Overall, while some stunts cheerleaders do may seem dangerous, proper training and instruction make them relatively safe to perform, no matter what the setting. Yes cheerleading is sooo deadly u can die from falling from the pirimids they do and other stunts too

Should cheerleading be a sport to most people?

No, because you stand on each other and do dancy stuff. Another Opinion: I definitely believe cheerleading should be perceived as a sport. Cheerleading has become so much more than just standing on the sideline with pom pons and doing "dancy stuff" Cheerleaders nowadays (both school and All Star) train for 5-12 hours each weak. They practice advanced tumbling moves much like a gymnast, jumps, and complicated and dangerous stunts. All this takes a great ammount of physical strength and stamina, not to mention the extra flexibility and agility cheerleaders have to have. There's really no good reason why people say that cheerleading isn't a sport, other than they don't really know what it is, or they're stuck in a stereotype
