The Role of the Cheerleader
"The role of the cheerleader demands that he/she be able to 'lead'. This leadership is displayed not only on the sideline but also in the classroom and community. The coach should strive to develop good leadership skills in all the cheerleaders on his/her team. This personal development takes much time and effort, but the results will be evident. Cheerleading is a fantastic way for young people to develop skills that will last a lifetime."
