Summer Stunt Tip Tuesday

with Kenny La from Australia

Hey everyone! Today we’re talking about failure. I’ve previously posted about the topic of failure but today I’m going to condense it down to 3 main reasons why I personally think it is so important.

FAILURE = EXPERIENCE

The only way to build and gain experience is to be consistent and studious. There is no doubt that while you build that experience you will fail many times. The failure is essential because it creates a deeper understanding of your craft and allows us to self-reflect which in turn opens the path to continual improvement. I have personally failed at many competitions. I’ve also done very well at some too. But the experience gained through failure has taught me that the successful comps were made possible because of the unsuccessful ones. Continue Reading

Summer Stunt Tip Tuesday!

🚴‍♂️
The phrase “how you train is how you compete” is absolutely true. Since there is no substitute for a competitive environment in most gyms, athletes have to place themselves in that environment. Visualising the gym as a comp venue and placing artificial pressure on yourself can help you adapt to the high pressure of competition environments. What you put in is what you get out!!

Summer Stunt Tip Tuesday: Extra Activities

with Kenny La from Australia

Hey everyone! On today’s edition of Stunt Tip Tuesday, we’re having a look at sports or activities outside of cheer that can improve your stunting. The following 3 activities are what I personally believe can help you greatly with your stunting

.

🏀 BALL SPORTS 🎾

The quick reflexes, fast-twitch movements, and precision required in sports such as basketball, tennis, rugby & AFL are all required for stunting. The ability to catch and throw balls efficiently can significantly improve your hand-eye coordination and furthermore your hand speed. These abilities can lead to enhancements in your stunting technique – the faster we can react with precision, the sooner we can get onto a flyer’s foot and therefore hit the stunt. Continue Reading

Love, Mom*

My daughter decided it was time to leave all-star cheerleading behind, and I wasn’t ready.

For years, all-star cheerleading has been our common ground. When I didn’t understand that she had to cross the road to catch a critter on Pokémon Go, or why one type of notebook was no longer cool, at least I understood cheerleading. I knew which brand of shoe she loved, I knew how to do her hair and makeup flawlessly—even after she was old enough to do it herself. I knew which bows needed to go on her cheer bag for competition luck, and exactly how many pixie-stix her stunt group needed to get them from meet-time to the mat. In a time where everything was pulling my teenage daughter away from me, all-star cheer kept us close. Continue Reading
