Will I Be Able To Make The Cheer Leading Team? What Are The Requirements For A Flyer?

I'm 14 years old and in August i want to try out for my high school cheer team since i miss doing it and i love doing it. I'm rusty on tumbling and stunts so my mom's going to take me to private tumbling classes for the whole summer time. I'm also going to be doing stretches so i can do a split,run, do yoga for flexibility, and workout. I'm very perky and always smile(literally),can do tight moves and i can have a loud voice when i need to . I was wondering will i be able to make the cheer team and to be a good flyer. I was also wondering the requirements for a flyer.

Best Answer

given that standing fulls are being made illegal next year i wouldn't worry ab out them! plus the fact 99% of cheerleaders cant do them.
tumbling will obviously help your chances but it depends on the skill of the current team. If they are a good team then you're gonna need some big skills. if they suck and take anyone on then you're good to go as you are ;-)
