American Cheerleading Scholarships?
Cheerleading is a unique sport that relies less on recruiting and past performance but more on tryouts to determine not only who will make the squad but who will be up for scholarship opportunities. The sport is high-profile and demanding, despite a public perception that cheerleading is less athletic than other sports like basketball or soccer. Competition is most fierce at schools with well-known and high-performing cheerleading programs.
What its like to Cheerlead at college
Cheerleaders at the highest level are more marketable to big schools and the top cheerleaders must not only be stellar athletes with tumbling skills but have a presence that gets a response from the crowd. Most scholarships in the sport are awarded directly by the cheerleaders’ intended colleges, although if you look hard enough, cheer organizations and associations – such as the American Association of Cheerleading Coaches and Administrators (AACCA) and the National Council for Spirit Safety and Education (NCSSE) – also offer awards to athletes looking to pursue the sport on a college level. While there is less funding available to cheerleaders than football players, programs with established cheerleading programs that win competitions will be more likely to receive scholarships than schools without a cheerleading tradition.
