The first month of summer has already come and gone, and hopefully the last two
months won’t fly by so quick! Over the last month, you’ve probably been
enjoying the company of your friends and family, doing all the prime summertime
activities. You only get a limited time to have fun in the sun! Summer is a
great time for cheerleaders, too, since it’s time to assimilate to your new
team after tryouts, head to camp to sharpen your cheer skills, and get on top
of your physical fitness while away from school. Plus, it’s time for personal
hobbies, social events, and community service! There’s always something to do.
While you’re staying busy, there’s been a lot happening in the cheer world as
well! Here is a recap of the June news you don’t want to miss.
To all the high school graduates, congratulations! You’ve made it! As you
celebrate, you may be wondering how you will continue cheering now that you’ve
aged out. Don’t stress, you have options! CheerLiving® Magazine dedicated a
whole episode of their web series to cheerleaders facing this tough dilemma!
Know that you don’t have to hang up your cheer shoes for good, because there
are ways to cheer after high school. Watch “Cheering After High School” here.
Summer is spent primarily outdoors, which is a good thing! However, with
outside practices, cheerleaders are subject to the danger of high temperatures
while they workout. To stay safe, cheerleaders have to take certain precautions
in order to avoid heatstroke and stay healthy. There are many ways to beat the
heat in the summertime, but sometimes, you have to just endure it. Read this
guide on “How to Avoid Heat Stroke When Practicing Outdoors” before it gets too
hot out there!

manage, but also usually include freebies and free shipping! Most cheer
retailers offer packages for their gear, but we have officially took it one
step further: you now can order customizable team packages online–without
having to call it in!! Talk about saving time on your team order… Complete your
entire order online for practice wear, uniform, accessories, warmups, and

Let’s hear it for cheer dads! Father’s Day has come and went, but cheer dads
need appreciation more than just one day a year. They contribute to cheer teams
all year long, and most face a lot of inaccurate stereotypes as they do. It’s
not a surprise that the cheerleading world is predominantly female, so cheer
dads get the short end of the stick when it comes to things like team decisions
or getting their little cheerleader competition-ready. It’s time we spread the
word that “There Are More Dads Involved in Cheerleading Than You Think”!
