    Ten years ago, if someone had told me that I would be a cheerleader at the collegiate level, I would most likely have laughed in their face. Now as I sit here getting ready for practice, I find it comical thinking about how I entered the world of cheerleading. Going into my freshman year of high school, my mother told me I had to try out for cheerleading. Naturally, I cried. There was no way I would be associated with the ditzy girls in short skirts with excessive amounts of makeup on. But as they say, mothers know best. Growing up, I participated in every sport imaginable; gymnastics, basketball, track, lacrosse, and even golf. Changing activities became familiar to me, as I would get bored quite quickly. After I had decided to take up cheerleading full time, I felt like I was downgrading. I felt I was too athletic for a sport that held so many “non-athletic” stereotypes. My theory was quickly proven wrong.…

    "Let's go generals let's go!" What do you think of cheerleading not being a sport? Then get your Pom Poms and come along. They keep the crowd going, I would definitely not enjoy football games without them. The first cheer squad started in 1898. The university of Minnesota had the honor to be the first school. I think that cheerleading is not a sport because it's not athletic and it has not been in the Olympics for that long. A lot of cheerleaders only call it a sport because they do…

    My movie shows the struggle of pushing cheerleading to become recognized as a sport, and lists the reasons of why it should be. As a cheerleader, many times, I have had to have this argument with other athletes in order to prove the hard work, passion, and dedication that is required of this sport. This is why I chose to make it into a movie, so that I could persuade others into agreeing with me. The audience that I am reaching to with this method of justification will be mostly children and…

    I walk into cheerleading tryouts (confidence radiates from my smile) this is moment of truth for my seventh-grade year. I’ve seen every “Bring it on” ever made, so I am pretty much a cheerleading professional. Everyone is beginning to warm-up and stretch, so I begin to follow what everyone else is doing. But after the first few minutes I soonly realise that I should have watched a few less “Bring it on” movies and maybe just the high school cheer squad. Despite being completely wrong about…
