Sport or not, Cheerleaders need to ******* get over themselves.

There are cheerleading competitions... so it is a sport whether you like it or not. If it involves physical activity and there are winners and losers than it is a sport. Plus if this is counted as a sport than so is cheerleading.

Alright, I'm seeing a lot of people go on about how "Cheer isn't a real sport, they just cheer for real sports." From my experience, the majority of teams are competition teams, both private clubs and school teams. It is rare to see a pure performance team anymore, as they usually compete to. Most teams do not, in fact, cheer for another team.
Cheer leading technically fits every prerequisite for a sport: It's pretty damn tough, especially at the higher levels in terms of physical exertion. There's competitions largely everywhere, and I know the Americans are particularly hardcore when it comes to it.
tl;dr: Cheer is a sport by definition

You can say that cheerleading is a sport, but don't try to pretend that it's some impossibly hard challenge that takes uncanny ability. My girlfriend was a cheerleader back in 9th grade and hated it because nobody did anything besides a couple of cartwheels and learning the chants. Almost all of the cheerleaders at my school were overweight because they thought they were so athletic and ate almost everything in their view.

Weird... when I go to pro American Football games all the cheerleaders do is get in a couple of rows in the endzones and dance slutty. No flips or anything.

Cheer leading can be considered a sport since there are competitions for it...Not like there are competitions for sex. And no I'm not a cheer leader, but I love watching them sexy girls.

There's worldwide beard competitions, I don't think anyone would classify growing a beard as a sport.

Cheerleading is like a showy, obnoxious gymnastics.

I'd know.

i'm a gymnast.
User avatar #118 to #95 - bokkos (11/23/2012) [-]
Gymnastics is just frilly men leaping around in leotards, alone.

I'd know.

I'm a cheerleader.

Sports have ******* goals to achieve. They have tournaments in which various sports teams compete for an honor. Cheerleading is slutty dancing in front of a football crowd.

I'd say it's more of a performing art than a sport

High school cheerleaders are not athletes, professional cheerleaders are not athletes, they're both glorified dancers and/or models. College and competition cheerleaders are athletes.

Dancing is a sport, therefore cheer-leading, as a subset of dancing, would be a sport.
Yet cheer-leading is more of a hybrid exercise, a cross between yoga, gymnastics and dancing.

silly human beings, cheer leading isn't competitive so it isn't a sport, what I find interesting is that people give a **** whether cheer leading is classified as a sport or not or think that because something is dangerous it there fore makes it more of a sport

I can't tell if you're trolling, or just a ******* moron.

Cheer Leading has multinational competitions. Most cheer-leadering squads use their cheer-leading in games as practice. There's dozens upon dozens of competitions most schools require students to go to.

Now, Why I think you are a ******* moron: Cheer-leading is so ******* dangerous BECAUSE it's not considered a sport. You ever fell into Pavement from 20 feet up? There are more major injuries in Cheer Leading than in any other high school level sport. Gymnastics is considered a sport, and they are essentially the same things - except gymnastics has fewer competitions. For a gymnast to perform, they must lay out this gigantic foam and rubber mat about 6 inches - 1 foot thick, All areas to surrounding, for roughly 10 feet, are completely surrounded in this stuff.

Now, Cheerleaders occasionally use mats in practice - not always. In competitions not only do they not use mats - they CAN'T use mats. Using mats automatically disqualifies you. So, performing more dangerous stunts, they get to practice on - rarely- mats, more commonly on asphalt, Concrete, or occasionally grass. They aren't allowed to wear any protective equipment, aren't allowed practice safely, and even in cases of potential serious injury - no one trained to handle it is required to be there.
