Basic Cheerleading Techniques & Tips : How to Do a Defense Cheerleading Cheer


Next, we’re going to be doing our defense
cheer. Defense when we want our team to grab that ball back. Their team now has the ball
and we want it so we can score again. This is our defense cheer. We’re going to start
out by saying the words. Take it away, go big D, defense take it away. Got that? Great.
Let’s now do the motions. The first motion is that K we learned. We’re going to be doing
that left K that we did. Left arm straight up and that’s take it. We do take it. On away,
you’re going to swing that arm up. Your right goes up into E that we learned, and your left
arm make sure comes straight down by your side. Let’s do it from the top. Here we go.
Take it away. On go big D, you’re going to swing that right arm in front of you and you’re
going to do a squatting position. Go big D. You’re going to go up to that cone that we
learned earlier, and you’re going to go on your toes and kick your legs together. On
defense, you’re going to squat down in front of you. This will be called a lunge. Both
your arms go right down in front of you in that low V we also learned earlier. On take
it you’re going to go up. Your right leg goes up and your arms go right behind your head.
I’ll just turn around for you. Your arms go right there back behind your head. On a way
you’re going to step right back out, make sure right leg goes out and your arms hit
that high V. Once again, make sure your cheer is super tight. Okay. Now, let’s say it all
together with the motions. Here we go. Take it away, go big D, defense, take it away,
take it away, go big D, defense take it away, take it away, go big D, defense take it away,
last time, take it away, go big D, defense take it away, yeah. Another thing as a side
note is you can add yeah at some of the end of your cheers to make it just one little
extra punch to the end. That was our defense cheer.
