School’s back in session, love is in the air, and we are officially headed
towards springtime. There’s something about February that is exciting (mainly,
how the weather is improving!), and cheerleaders know that feeling all too
well. Basketball sideline season is underway, competitions are happening right
and left, and tryouts are right around the corner. You may be too busy to even
catch your breath! Because of this, we want to highlight what you may have
missed in cheer news over the last month–and it was a lot, considering how
short February is!

you talk about this month? Share your stories in the comments below.
- We’ve released a new eBook! Omni Cheer University has made
an entire eBook dedicated to helping cheerleaders not only make attainable
personal and professional goals, but also included instructions on how to make
those goals happen. We focused on potential setbacks along the way to the
finish line, whether those problems are coming from external sources or inside
your own head. Here’s how you can get your free copy of The Ultimate Guide to Achieving Cheer Goals.
- Tryouts are coming up fast! Do you know if you’re ready?
There are several things that cheerleaders should be doing this time of year in
order to be prepared for tryouts, and CheerLiving
Magazine® released a new episode to tell you all about it! In the latest
episode of their cheerleading web series entitled “How to Build a Solid
Foundation for Tryouts”, CheerLiving
expands on all the elements of getting fit and breaks them down as a visual
guide for cheerleaders to know exactly what to do. And it’s not just about
working out! The video points out lifestyle habits that help with overall
wellbeing. So, what are you waiting for? Get to watching before it’s too late!

- Do you know if your heart truly beats in eight counts? We
asked cheerleaders to hypothetically head to the mall and see if they identify
with certain cheer-related scenarios while out in public. We also paired them
to GIFs for visual aides. This quiz does not require a doctor’s visit and these
10 GIFs couldn’t be more perfect!
- We are very proud to announce our spring line of cheer gear
coming soon to digital outlets on March 1st! Our print catalogs are
to follow later in the month, so watch out for our mailers when they arrive at
your door. In the meantime, you are fully able to shop our new arrivals online
all March long.
- Are your routines getting a little stale? Do you need some
added pizzazz and extra sparkle, but just can’t quite figure out what’s
missing? One cheer expert revealed in February how to use poms to their full
potential and really get the crowd going! Poms are great props to use, and
there really is no limit to their versatility. Just in case you need some ideas
to get you going, click here to learn “Five Ways to Incorporate Poms into Your
Routines”. Your audience will thank you!
