Most people see the cheerleaders at the football games cheering on the sidelines but there's a whole other world of competitive cheerleading out there. From November to March, competitive cheerleaders spend their weekends traveling all over the state and sometimes out of the state to competitions. I cheer for my school and my school also has a competition team which I also participate in. We go to camp in the summer and put together our routine; this includes choreographing a dance, putting together stunt sequences and a pyramid, coming up with a cheer, and adding tumbling where needed. A routine has to have all these elements and has to be about two minutes long. Two minutes, I know that seems like a lot of work for a two minute performance but in those two minutes you are constantly moving, flipping, dancing, jumping, cheering, and stunting. Once you have this routine down, you start competing.
