As much as you may not be able to imagine not being a cheerleader, that’s not the case for everyone. For some, they may discover that cheerleading isn’t for them. Whether it’s a personal issue or just a loss of interest in the sport, quitting the team should be a mature and thought out decision and should be handled with care. If you’ve decided that cheer isn’t for you, follow our tips for quitting your team.
First, as cheer enthusiasts, we must ask: have you thought out your decision? Think about why you want to quit. Do you not like your teammates? Are you struggling learning the routines? Do you moan and groan when you’re at practice and games? If you’re just upset about not catching on, that’s not a good reason to quit! Everyone struggles in the beginning and some people don’t learn as quickly as others. If you’re having trouble learning (or even having an issue with a teammate), talk with your coach first. If you share your concerns, your coach may find a solution!
