Allstar Cheerleading does not involve pom poms, chanting or horns. It involves pure athleticism, determination, teamwork, flipping, jumping, high energy dance, and lifting. Cheerleading is not as easy as it is made out to be, it is tough mentally and physically, holding girls in the air and perfecting tumbling skills. It is an incredibly fast-growing sport in Australia having more than 10,000 athletes compete at last year’s National Competition.
“All Star cheerleading is a competition sport that involves boys and girls performing a 2 minute and 30 second routine composed of tumbling, stunting, pyramids, dance, and jumps. This routine is performed and scored against other competitive teams at various local, regional, national, and worldwide competitions. When we refer to tumbling, we mean gymnastic type skills like cartwheels and back handsprings. Stunting refers to a group of two or more individuals that elevate another cheerleader in the air. This also includes co-ed stunting that may only include one base and one flyer. Pyramids are a form of stunting but are done as a large group and are interconnected. Dance is a portion of a routine that consists of choreographed high energy dance moves” (USASF Cheer Parents 101).
