How I started cheerleading - Eric Gibson - Marshall University Cheerleader 2000
        Why are you so concerned about the science of cheerleading?
I became a college cheerleader in 2000. What’s the big deal about that? Well, I had never before cheered: not in high school, not in middle school, not in youth league. Never. In fact, I had never really understood what demands that cheering would place upon me as a student and as an athlete. I prepared mybody for the physicality of the sport, and I met those challenges, but I discovered that the one part of cheerleading that few can imagine is the mental discipline that is required.
Most of the top individuals in the sport are incredibly creative, and I have been blessed with an analytical brain. Yes, I can "feel" the kinesthetic movements involved in developing the necessary skill, but I always needed to know how these movements came to be and how to utilize the science of the movements to both perfect them and to make them safe. In other words, the cheerleader needs to be both an athlete and a scientist.
I will to present to the cheerleading community some of the biomechanical processes involved in stunting, tumbling, and jumping. Too often coaches, instructors, and cheerleaders focus on the wrong causes for a fallen stunt or missed tumbling pass. The blame is sometimes placed on the wrong person or maybe the incorrect timing of the movement. My goal is to pass along some of my discoveries to provide you with evidence-based science to help you improve your cheerleading skill level and/or teaching ability.
