Why Commitment Is The Key To Success

By  |  0 Comments

Commitment is one of the most important components in cheerleading. Each cheerleader is expected to commit to the season, gym, team and even themselves with each new season. However, it is not just the cheerleaders that have to commit. The gym owners, coaches and parents have to take part in the commitment as well. When everyone works together and commits 100% the end result is a successful program and season.

When cheerleaders commit to their new team they not only have to live up to the commitment to themselves but also to their entire team. Many cheerleaders practice at least 2 to 3 times a weeks, attend additional tumbling classes, flying lessons and even private lessons, and take time at home to practice. For many, there is never really an off season either. Teams practice throughout the summer to improve their skills for the upcoming season. If just one cheerleader does not live up to their commitment, the entire team will suffer.

Parents also have to commit to their child’s cheerleading season. Parents are committing to get their child to practice on time, travel during the competitions, committing financially and committing to encourage your athlete to do their best, be a leader and a team player. Some may not realize it, but having supportive parents makes all the difference for cheerleaders and their team.

To be successful you need the support of the cheerleaders, coaches, and parents. Cheerleading is a team sport just as much as any other, and without each member and supporter you are less likely to have a great season.

Commitment to a team will mean making some sacrifices, but in the long run, the payoff is one to remember for a life time. The accomplishments that you make as a cheerleader will give you the confidence to pursue your goals later on in life.
