    Could I Realistically Do Cheer In College

    I have been cheering for 2 seasons in high school and I am a senior. I have no real tumbling skills. The most impressive thing I can do is a one-handed cartwheel. Aside from that I can only do the extreme basics that practically every girl can do- forward and backward rolls, cartwheels...

    Trembling In Extension

    For some background, I am new at cheering and never cheered as a kid or go to a private gym. I am a flyer and it is my second season cheering for my high school team, and today I got up into an extension for the first time. I had tried before with other less experienced bases, but the stunt...

    All-Star Nfinity Flyte Shoes

    So I had been stretching my splits daily for about a week, I stretched a lot bc I wanted to get them quickly. About 5 days ago, I slid into my side splits and got a weird pain in my butt/upper inner thigh at the back of my thigh. It's like an uncomfortable pain, not unbearable or severe but it...

    Try outs are in 2.5 months and one of the coaches just said that having a Bow and Arrow is an important skill. I just wanted to know if I should be focusing on my middle splits or side splits mainly and which I should be over-stretching. Along with what stretches will help achieve it faster. If...

    All-Star Help Not Turning Out In Splits? Needle Help!

    CP has both splits all the way down working oversplits on both legs. However, when her right leg is in front she struggles with keeping her hips in place to essentially not fall out. This proves to be quite upsetting for her when she tries to reach back into the "needle split." At the gym ...

    Camp Woodward??

    Newbie to all-star cheer (and this place lol) My cp has heard about Camp Woodward through her gymnast friends and her older cheer friends who used to be on Worlds teams. Sadly they're all for the most part off in college now so if we sent her she would probably be alone, and much lower level...

    Is This Normal?

    Daughter recently just joined a Sr1 team. She's very small for her age (15) at 4'10 and 80 lbs. The way her gym chose stunt positions for her team was by putting the girls in a line from tallest to shortest and having the shortest half as flyers and the taller half as bases. Is this a normal way...

    High School Male Flyers

    I noticed that it is pretty common to see a male cheerleader fly in a basket toss at the NCA Nationals (Texas Tech, for example had a guy fly in a x-out full basket toss in the Nationals routine) but never at the UCA Nationals. How common are male cheerleaders who fly in baskets and stunts?
