I have decided to try my youngest daughter in a cheerleading club in the fall. They cheer for a local rugby club. I have had her on the waitlist for gymnastics at the local leisure center for some time and thought this might be a good second option. Supposedly, cheerleading is one of the fastest growing 'sports' in the U.K. We have a handful of university squads in our area and a few dance schools offer it up as well. There however seems to be some controversy on whether cheerleading is actually considered a sport though. It's unique combination of dance, gymnastics and drama doesn't equate to sport in
some peoples mind. I look forward to my daughter learning the positive cheers,
tumbles, splits and dance routines.
