Complete Cheerleading PDF
EbookIn the past decade, cheerleading has lit up the sidelines and become an activity all its own. Attendance at summer camps has grown to more than 500,000 participants annually, and tens of thousands train for regional and national competitions each year, with championships and even college scholarships on the line. As cheerleading continues to grow, so too does the need for a source of information that covers the range of skills, stunts, and moves. Complete Cheerleading provides all the information participants need in order to excel in this highly athletic and increasingly competitive activity.
Top cheerleading coaches and judges lend their expert instruction on such crucial topics as body position and movement, voice control, jumps and tumbling, stunt technique, and choreography. There are chapters dedicated solely to games and pep rallies, camps and competition, and practices and conditioning, in addition to XX stunts for all levels of cheer squads.
Teaming Justin Carrier, National Cheerleading Association (NCA) director of curriculum, and Donna McKay, cheer coach in Iowa and national judge, this book combines success at the national level, long-term coaching expertise at the high school level, and judging experience at every level. Complete Cheerleading is the all-in-one authoritative source that cheerleaders, coaches, and advisors will turn to from one spirited season to the next.
