Basic Cheerleading Stunting : Cheerleading Moves from a Prep Position


In this stunt, the girls are going to perform
a ground up liberty at prep level to a prep and then the dismount will be a pop cradle.
When back basing a ground up liberty, it’s important for the back base to have one hand
on the ankle and the other hand underneath the rear of the flier so that they can really
push her up. And as we always say, safety first. Make sure you have mats the first time
you practice any stunts and that you have people spotting you. Ready. Here we go. Ready
one two,
up, prep, pop cradle, ready one two. In this stunt, the girls will be performing a prep
to a hitch, back to a prep and then the dismount will be a pop cradle. For the flier, it’s
important to remember that she puts her weight on the foot that the main base is holding
when the hitch is called out. Now you should also remember that safety comes first. Make
sure you have mats the first time you practice any new stunts and that you have proper spots.
Ready, five six seven eight. One two three four five six seven eight, one two. Hitch,
ready one two, down, pop cradle, ready one two.

  1. every time the flyer was cradled she was way to stiff she needs to relax a bit or she will hit the bases in the head and i know that from experience

  2. she didnt lock her knees enough. you need spring boards not matts! and she didnt point her toes enough. wow i mean youd think theyd finde the best when makinga teaching video.

  3. I'm usually on the base, and it's really important that the flier isn't unsteady or wobbly. Also, she needs to point her toes when doing the pop cradle.

  4. I can do it without the cradle. I just jump off and land on my feet. I didn't know it was dangerous until my coach told me.

  5. okay that chick in the back didn't have her hand on her rear… i've done that but since when does anyone go straight into the liberty?!?!?!?!

  6. i'm always very nervous bout doing stunts, this girl is like completely relaxed with it, she probably trusts her bases (i don't) =)…

  7. wish i could do that! In the uk there really isn't much cheerleading around the south especilly!!! i wish i lived in the US! x 🙁

  8. they dont have a front spotter and im a front spotter and they r talking about safty always first but they dont have a front spotter about if the flyer falls

  10. OMG shut up noone cares who you cheer for or what all you can do i mean seriously some people maybe just starting out so just shut up and quit bragging gosh 🙂

  11. I wish everyone would use the same name for everything, like on my middle school team a prep was a half and a set was a smoosh, but when i went into high school it was compleatly different, i was confused until our first comp

  12. y don't all of u "supposed" girls stop being haters. u obviously clicked on the video and felt the need to comment. even tho it's horrible the way ur disrespectful. ur not cheerleaders ur hating lil girls SAD! no confidence or love, much less cheer. u should be ashamed of ur foul mouths. That attitude will not land u a scholarship to a college and u prob wont get in with ur intelligence if u talk this way! drop the hating and learn that ur way isn't the only way. all done!

  13. i haven't seen anyone start a stunt like that? its pretty cool, we start our preps in a load in postion. but this is great(:

  14. @JASCheer101 Easier than it looks, specially for them because at the beginning of the count, she already has a leg up. Usually the flyer jumps in.

  15. Im tired of girls being like thats wrong, ohmigod, im so much better than her. SHUT THE HELL UP. I'm a flyer and you dont hear me bragging. But you aren't supposed to clap in front of your face. (:

  16. my school calls the " prep" a half and she makes it seem like its gonna be so much more complicated lol just say were gonna do a half(or prep whatever you call it) then cradle
