We’re smack dab in the middle of summer, and the last thing you want to think
about is August starting… with school to follow! Can’t it just be friends, and
fun, and cheer camp forever?? As you attend camp and return home, remember to
bask in the glory of one more summer month and enjoy every last minute of it!
The end is near! Before we burst your summer bubble with thoughts of heading
back to school, let’s reminisce about July a little more in the top
cheerleading news of the month! Summer months are busy times for most people,
so just in case you’ve been caught up livin’ it up on the beach or by the pool,
here is the news you need to know:
- Have you been jet-setting around with your family on vacation lately? It’s
great to get out and see the world, but the last thing a cheerleader needs is
to let go of fitness goals as they travel–especially after working hard all
cheer season long to get in such peak condition! Luckily, CheerLiving® Magazine
recognizes this conundrum in their latest episode “How To Stay Fit on
Vacation”, even detailing ways cheerleaders can “accidentally exercise” while
away from home. Talk about some fitness hacks!
- Parents–do you sometimes question the credentials of your child’s cheer coach?
Coaches have to be qualified in order to lead a team successfully, but what
exactly makes or breaks a cheer coach? With so many bases to cover, does a
cheer coach need actual cheerleading experience? What about a college degree or
a background in sports medicine? A coach embodying all of these elements would
be ideal, but the question is, should these things be mandatory? We present you
with information, now it’s up to you to decide.
- Cheerleading is hard. Due to its difficulty, cheerleaders walk away from it
with a wide range of skills–character traits that can be applied to all areas
of life! You might not even notice it, but cheerleading teaches you a lot more
than just how to jump, and tuck, and tumble. One cheerleader recently revealed
The Most Important Life Lesson You Learn in Cheerleading, and by acquiring it,
what this one particular lesson can do for you and your future goals. What do
you think it is??
- OK, so we said above that the last thing you want to do right
now is entertain the thought of heading back to school… but you unfortunately
have to face the music at some point. Since school represents the official
death of summer (so sad, we know), we made it a little easier for you to swallow
with an explanation of how to go about it in GIFs. Don’t be sad: Gearing Up for
School After Summer Break doesn’t mean that it won’t be fun! Who knows? You
might just realize, deep down, that you’ve really been missing school this
whole time. Maybe. Just maybe.
