Best Answer

Organized Cheerleading was officially founded on November 2nd, 1898 at the University of Minnesota. A student by the name of Johnny Campbell led the crowd at the football game that day in an organized cheer. Cheerleading would be a male led activity up until 1923 when females began join. At this point gymnastic tumbling and megaphones were incorporated into cheers.

Modern athletic cheerleading would start developing later during the 1980's.
