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.

So, is speed walking a sport? Physical activity, winners, losers...Everything you said. Is Xbox Kinect a sport? Physicality is involved, winning and losing.

Don't forget Wii sports. That **** gets physical too.

Well if it invovles a sanctioning body overseeing a physical competition than yes it is a sport.

So, you're saying if a certain amount of people say it's a sport, it is? Hmm...

Steps to making a sport -

1) physical
2) winners, losers
3) supporters

It's time to make gaming a sport. Oh wait, it already is..

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

Well I myself have never been interested in sports of any kind lol. But I can see where you're coming from. I think when people think cheer leading they thing 5th graders with pom-poms ding jumping jacks. I can at least respect the ones who work hard and do special tricks and stuff. Gymnastics is pretty much running cheer leading lol.

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.

You were saying that if there's a competition for it (and I assume you mean actual professional competition) then it's a sport. I'm merely saying that your logic on that is flawed.

Well I was mostly comparing it to sex in that aspect. But a sport is something that requires some type of skill or physical prowess, and be competitive. Cheer leading has all these. Yes my logic was flawed for some things like beards, I won't deny that.

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.

When I said dancers, I meant doing little drills and such. Most high school cheerleaders clap a bit, do a little chant, and wave their pompoms. Professional cheerleaders just shake their asses and occasionally their pompoms.

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.

You live in a very different area than I do; Mats are a required safety protocol for all competitions; 5 mats for performance, 2 extra for safety.
Where do you live, generally?

Florida, It's not federally required to use mats - in fact most practice happens at games, generally cheering in the track field that surrounds the football field, unless you're in a school that has it's own football field away from the track - in which case they cheer on the grass there.

It must be way more recognized in Alberta; coaches are approved through the school, and most teams have 3-4 practices a week plus"open gym", which is just practice with your stunt group. I've never had to perform at a game
