Best Answer

You are still considered a cheerleader if your an alternate, even if you do not cheer at games, or are not competing. If you practice with the team and have enthusiasm towards Cheerleading, then you are considered a cheerleader. Alternates are so very important in cheerleading and can be so helpful if someone was to become sick/injured.
