Many people think that cheerleading is a sport that only includes choreographed dances and pom poms. This, however, is really not the case. At UM Cheerleading we do competitive cheerleading which is quite different. Competitive cheerleading, as opposed to the side-line cheerleading as described above, is a combination of acrobatics, gymnastics and performance arts. Our routines includer a variety of tricks and stunts from these disciplines for which we have to work together really well in order to pull them off. Because we need such good coordination to perform our stunts, this sport is considered to be a very social one. To make sure everybody can understand what is going on during our practise we all speak English since we have many international members.
We currently have two teams at UM Cheerleading; the Legends team and the Heroes team. Between these teams there is a difference in emphasis on specific parts of cheerleading. The Legends team is more focussed on tumbling and short routines that mostly include stunts whereas the Heroes teams is more focussed on longer routines that includes parts such as dancing.
