This book is great for cheerleading because it covers EVERYTHING.. not just how to jump and stunt, but also how to choreograph, get ready for camp and competition. Most other cheer books aren't as well rounded.

I am a cheerleader. Always have, always will. I thought my cheer skills were lagging, so I bought this book. I was always terrified to be the flyer. Unfortnutetly I was. But, this book totally helped me get over it! I am one of the high flyers now. I am perfectly okay with it!
