I don't know if it's a sport or not, but it sure is a lot of work and exercise. I guess some people think that sports involve competing, so that's why they say it's not a sport. But, whatever it is, it's great exercise.

Cheerleading is a lot of work. Not just something that anyone can do. You truly do get a lot of Excercise when you are a Cheerleader, and it is not an Easy task. I personally give my hats off to people who do this. I think it is a Great way for a person to stay in shape.

Heck yea, cheerleading is a sport. As amtter of fact, a recent article came out that said cheerleading is now the most dangerous sport. There are more injuries in cheerleading than football, boxing, basketball, or any other sport. I was a cheerleader too and it was a lot of work and athletic ability. You had to be pretty in shape to participate.
