Hi! I’m Lucy Spain on behalf of Expert Village.
I’m going to show you some cheerleading squad cheers today. We’re going to talk about chants
and I’m going to demonstrate some that you can take to your squad. First of all, before
we can get started cheering, each squad is going to acquire a bank of cheers. You’re
going to want about 30-50 cheers because you don’t want to bore your crowd doing the same
cheer over and over again. We certainly don’t want to repeat cheers within the duration
of one basketball game or one football game. As a cheerleader, you’re going to be expected
to bring about 5 cheers to your squad. It’s okay to take these cheers from squads that
you’ve formally been on as long as you get the permission of the coach. It’s also appropriate
to look through books and the internet to get cheer words. You can make up your own
motions, or you can also create your own cheer entirely. Once you have the 5 cheers you’d
like to teach, you’re going to have to make sure the rest of your squad members can master
this cheer. The best way to teach cheers is to face back to the girls you’re teaching
them so we don’t get our right and left confused. For example, right V, left V, step, turn.
You’re going to want to make sure that you’re ready to do them this way. You can also teach
them mirrored, but that means you’re going to be in charge of reversing all the movement
yourself. Go ahead and get these cheers ready so you can bring them in and teach the rest
of your squad.
