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

Summer Stunt Tip Tuesday: Rolling Out!

with Kenny La from Australia

 

Hey guys! Today’s episode of Stunt Tip Tuesdays is Rolling Out 🎾

.

Stunting takes a toll on the body especially on the joints and the connecting muscles. Taking time to roll out is essentially giving yourself a deep tissue massage that breaks up adhesions & scar tissue that may have formed during stunting. This can help speed up the healing process of those muscles and can also help prevent potential future injuries

Queer Eyes Big Hearts

One of the most binge-worthy shows on Netflix right now is Queer Eye. I mean, what’s not to love about 5 gay guys with so much love in their hearts on their journey to help other men find their self-worth, confidence and body-positivity?! If there’s anything negative you could say, it’s that they make us question our friends and why they don’t hype us up on IG like these guys love on each other.

Celebrate National Olympic Day 2018!!

Olympic Day is celebrated on June 23 every year all over the world!

The worldwide celebration aims to promote fitness, well-being, culture and education, while also observing the Olympic values of excellence, friendship and respect.  The Olympic Day pillars – move, learn and discover – are promoted in every corner of the globe. Olympic Day creates opportunities for people to participate in sport across the globe regardless of age, gender or athletic ability.

In 2016, the ICU received provisional recognition for the sport of cheerleading from the IOC, opening the path to one day seeing cheer in the summer games. In 2017, USA Cheer—the governing body for cheerleading in the USA—had the opportunity to showcase the sport of cheer at the Pyeongchang Winter games, alongside representatives from Canada, Norway and Germany.

We’re hoping we could see our sport hit the Olympic stage in 2028 in Los Angeles, what do you think?!
