It is no secret at all that in order to be an amazing cheerleader, you really need to know a wide array of stunts, jumps and moves. Whether you are trying out for a cheerleading squad for the very first time or you are already on a team and looking for the best routine to put together, you might want to try and master a couple of incredible jumps that are sure to get you the attention that you desire.
When it comes to many of the teams that are out there today, there will be a minimum requirement that they expect from all of the cheerleaders who are on the squad. If you do not know any jumps or stunts, then you might just find that you will have to wait until you learn in order to become a part of the team. Basically, the minimum requirements that are found with the majority of cheerleading squads will include proficiency in tumbling, a good grasp on round-offs and cartwheels, and much more. For the schools who are really into competitive cheerleading, it is not unusual for them to require that everyone trying out for the squad knows how to do more involved jumps and tricks including back tucks, back hand springs and more.
The nice thing about cheerleading today is that it really does provide a nice way for girls and guys to compete in a healthy environment. In addition to the aspects of the competition, cheerleading is a wonderful way for young cheerleaders to learn to follow a routine, enjoy a feeling of comradery and also get an amazing amount of exercise, which can be beneficial to their health in later years. In addition to that, many parents will become very involved, helping their children by being supporting and even helping them to master their jumps and other tricks.
In terms of various jumps that mostly all cheerleading squads will like to use for their routines at games and even competitions, there are several important ones that should be learned. Most coaches will make sure that their group will be able to master certain jumps including the toe-touch, spread eagle, right or left herkie and front hurdler. Most coaches and squad helpers will generally have experience with these kinds of jumps and will be very helpful when it comes to teach the squad how to hone their skills in the various jumps that need to be mastered as a group.
