  1. That's why I love my school's cheerleader coach, because she always tells our cheerleaders before practice and after to stretch and stretch often. Because of that, everyone of our cheerleaders are extremely flexible

  2. Don't ascribe to racism that which can be better explained by incompetence. This man was a hack pure and simple. I believe he watched one too many martial arts films as a kid with all their brutal training montages and he probably thought he was making her better.

  3. we should go after some football coaches too for insisting on  three practices a day for freshmen in the Georgia summer heat and other southern states as well…there has to be limits placed on high school coaches! In Illinois we have track coaches making freshman run on icy roads in forty below windchill wearing shorts to get ahead of the competition in the spring!

  4. My mom comes from the old days. She is afraid of black people. This looks like a predominantly black school. So I'm guessing there would be president Bomma in there if it was white girls and boys forcing a poor colored girl into splits. Hm. I know I'm not wrong. And picketing and rioting. But since it's a white girl, nobody is going to riot, not going to picket, and the president won't get involved.

  5. My dance teacher would lightly push our shoulders until it was a stretch but would stop when we said stop he gave my foam blocks to do over splits because I'm flexible but that is not okay

  6. first of all why would they even allow men to coach girls. you know there's always gonna be something inappropriate happening sooner or later

  7. I did two years of gymnastics and we stretched into it over time i lost my flexibility but u learn over time this is horrible

  8. I have no idea how much pain these girls went through. My thighs hurt just from barely getting down with my legs at a 120 degree angle i can't imagine the amount of pain going straight into the splits. And being forced probably makes the pain so much worse. Unbelievable

  9. If anyone ever put their hands on my nieces or even my sister…..against her will, I'd rage against the authority committing this act of assault.

  10. She never studied gymnastics then how stupid of her to say that as a professional. Chinese gymnast do it all the time.

  11. The worst part is that the other cheerleaders had to hold her down while she screamed, knowing that they would also have to suffer soon.

  12. This is horrible my sister did cheer but she was not push to do it and now my freind is in cheer and my sister and my friend can't do splits but now forced when I saw this I started telling my friend to watch this and she said that now she is not in cheer because of this now she is so scared

  13. People are saying why did she sign up for cheer if she can't do the splits, well maybe she likes the sport. I believe you don't have to be necessary good at the sport to have fun

  14. When I tried out for soccer in high school, the coach forced us to run and wouldn't let us stop and one girl almost passed out and threw up. Coaches need to learn to back off a little.

  15. I remember when my martial arts instructor forced me into an elevated splits all the time. I'd cry. And the other students wouldn't show any sympathy at all because they all had to go through it too. The boys and the girls, they were all pushed passed their limit one ore more times since they had started training. And I trully feel distressed for these girls as I can recall the tears and cries that came from me when I went through a similar experience.

  16. oh boy. just saying but american schools really like to stur up drama that hits the news theirs videos of stalkerish teachers, students being pepper sprayed by teachers and this

  17. I JUST WANNA ENTER THIS SITUATION AND PUNCH AND KICK THOSE PEOPLE A MILLION TIMES WHEREEVER IT HURTS ON THEIR BODY LIKE YOU DON'T EVEN KNOW HOW INFURIATING THIS IS

  18. Admin leave for child abuse is unreal. Please put these people in jail. Any adult doing this should be in jail not on leave!

  19. I'm thinking the coach was ex-military or something. Dude went in there with the attitude "I'll make them all do a full split by the end of the day".

  20. wow, Im a dancer and we get split stretched all the time but not to this level, this is wrong there is a limit for this kind of stuff you can't push beyond the limit just because you want faster results stretching your body is something you have to ease into, he could have permanently injured those girl.

  21. 0:43–0:45 I think I'm just the only Kpop fan here…… when she said that I was singing GOT7's song Never Ever 😂
    But LIKE, I FEEL BAD FOR THE GIRL THO🙈😫

  22. …Just…Wha….Why?! How mentally sick to you have to be to actually think doing this type of things is a good idea?! Wtf?!

  23. I've been a cheerleader for a while now and I still don't have my splits since none of my coaches really bugged me about getting them

  24. How he pulled her away😠 He is hurting this kids/teenagers and has still his job? Or did he lose it ? Someone knows it?

  25. This is crazy but I remember when I was younger I remember my friend told me that when they were taking gymnastics it was NORMAL for the teacher to push you into a split. Wow crazy crazy.

  26. This was beyond dangerous I've been cheering since I was 4 and I'm in highschool so this pissed me off she could've of had a even worse Muscles and nerve damage that could've been permanent he should never be near kids again cus that was harassment and should go to
    Jail omfg

  27. I would have freaking kicked, punched, and went ballistic on all of them. That just seems like a certain type of rape. That's how I feel. What has this world come to?

  28. This is BS this happens to me all the time, ever since I was little…. but my previous gymnastics gyms have been kicked out of USA gymnastics so….

  29. it freaking takes TIME to do the splits you can't freaking do it right off the bat, today, right now and be like no pain no gain! When I was little I asked my cousin how she did the splits and she literally said each day do these exercises to your legs until you are able to do it. She didn't tell me just get on the floor right now and push yourself to just do them today even if it's painful. This is absolutely disgusting and wrong.

  30. Ok on one side there's the fact that this is literally abhorrent and on the other. Do you really think tearing someones ligiments in 1 day is gonna make them able to do the splits?

  31. I understand that she probably didn't know what to do in the situation but I would have been throwing punches and biting him so he would get his hands off of me

  32. Everyone keeps going off on the coach. I can understand that from lack of experience. I've been doing competition cheerleading for 8 years now and this is normal kinda. It is true that over time you will become more flexible. When the girl was being "forced" into the split, she kept resisting them. One of the coaches even said that stop resisting or you'll make it hurt even more. Yet she kept resisting them. She brought all the pain upon herself. I understand that it was wrong for the coach to force her into a all out split. The coach was trying to push her to her full potential instead of giving up on her. The damaged tissues, muscles, and ligaments is also normal for a cheerleader. Heck right now I have shin splits. Also remember she decided to go to that cheer camp.

  33. I used to dance. Dancing requires even more stamina and flexibility than cheerleading. But never in all my years of dancing has anyone forced a child into a split they could not do. Use, they help stretch us past our limit so we could improve on our flexibility and feel a deeper stretch, but never to the point where we could be injured or in pain. This is outrageous.

  34. I would love to hear where he supposedly is from, and where he was taught that, that was what you do? what a piece of s***

  35. In gymnastics, we would do over splits and my coach would also push down in order to stretch us but if we were in pain, she would stop or if we tell her to stop she would she wouldn't dismiss what we say, she would even ask often if we need her to stop or the pain was unbearable. That's why seeing this just makes me mad, this is absurd, he should have a harder punishment because what he did was wrong and in my eyes it's counted abuse

  36. Is it too late for a 13 yr old to start cheer or gymnastics bc I just started being interested like a few months ago

  37. Wow what lack of understanding. For anyone who has trained in any competitive sport knows "No Pain No Glory". I am a man who trained in Ballet with Mikhail Baryshnikov. We went through way more pain and grueling training than this. If you couldn't take it you just bowed out but you never complained because it was a privileged to even be in his class. At 13 these girls should already be able to do the slits easily.

  38. Whaaaa in gymnastics our coach would get panel matts and force us to do oversplits. All but one girl had it, so she sat on her using her weight completely. And she was crying worse than her but no one did anything. Plus she did it all the time

  39. There racis ….noticed there was all black people holding her down and only one white in the back that was barley touching her

  40. If I was a cheerleader there I would I kicked him in then nuts and hit him in the knock out spot on the neck to just Stop him and help the girl up, get her somewhere safe to help her and call 911

  41. I CANNOT BELIEVE THAT THERE ARE ACTUALLY WOMEN WHO ARE SAYING THAT THESE GIRLS SHOULD BE ABLE TO DO THE SPLITS IF THEY WANT IN THE CHEERLEADING GAME !!! ARE U SERIOUS ?? " WELL, IF THEY CAN'T EVEN DO THE SPLITS….." THOSE WERE NOT SPLITS, THOSE WERE COMPARABLE TO BRAKING THE WISHBONE AFTER EATING A CHICKEN !!!!

  42. This makes me really upset. Picking on a 13 year old like that and having other kids hold her down. What a punk. Also the other kids, WHAT THE FRICK! How can they go along with the coach and do someone like that? For real. Bunch of jokers. I would suspend the kids who held her down too and make sure they can't cheer no more. Learn right from wrong.

  43. She has a reason to say this because the girls ligaments from the video busted even though he said he was pushing her up it's still no the right thing to do because not everyone can go that extra limit

  44. I’ve done gymnastics and cheerleading and have done this? If you’re a serious athlete you accept the pain and learn to live with it. People that are saying you don’t need to have flat splits in cheerleading are a joke. This is being thrown out of proportion and lost someone their job. Poor coach. 💔
