Basic Moves for Cheerleading Routines : How to Do a Touchdown Cheer in Cheerleading


Hi! I’m Mandy Butler on behalf of Expert Village
and I’m going to talk to you today about cheerleading motions. Now I’m going to show you the touchdown.
Sometimes you might hear this called a punch, but most commonly, it’s called a touchdown.
I’m going to take my arms, they’re going to be nice and tight, elbows locked extended
above my head. Again, if I look up, I can see my wrists right in front. They’re not
back too far. My chest isn’t forward. They’re nice and tight. You see how I have them just
as I had my high V, I’ve got these nice and forward, so I look a lot cleaner than if I
had them back too far. My hands, again, I tell my little ones, they’re facing each other.
That keeps them for rotating them incorrectly. Now, you’ll notice in the high V, my big doughnut
holes are showing. In the touchdown, my little doughnut holes are showing. This part of my
hand is what is always facing forward in the touchdown. You may do a right touchdown or
a left touchdown. When you’ve got both of them up there together, that’s touchdown position.
