Cheerleading is an activity where girls root and cheer for their school team. Maybe they have special uniforms and maybe not but thats it. Thats what cheerleading was meant to be like and nothing more. For the other things that these girls do today like competitions and such we have a different name for and that is called gymnancing which is a combination between gymnastics and dancing. This shall be used when talking about a competition. The activity "cheerleading" would not be valid when talking about a competition but only when talking about a football game or basketball game. Cheerleading is an activity not a sport but gymnancing is indeed a sport. From now on no gymnancer shall be irritated by someone sayind "cheerleading is not a sport" because that person is absolutely right!
