Fall is ending and winter is just around the corner. This means winter sports are starting soon. Winter cheer is one of those many sports. In this sport, teammates perform a two minute routine showing off their best skills. They compete with other teams to win the title. When interviewing several students from the team, many of them expressed how winter and fall cheer are two very different sports. After interviewing sophomore Kiley Sweeney she stated,

Are you excited to go into the season? What are you excited about?

“Yes I’m excited and I am excited for the new members to join and see where we go this season.”

What do you plan to achieve during this season?

“Hitting all the stunts everytime we compete.”

In your opinion, what is different between winter and fall cheer? 

“For fall we stand on the side lines and cheer on the football team where for competition we compete with other teams for the first place trophy.”

In your opinion, what do you believe is the hardest aspect of winter cheer?

“Stunting for hours to perfect the stunt.”

Marissa Eng, another sophomore on the cheer team also stated, 

Are you excited to go into the season? What are you excited about?

“Yes I am very excited. I’m excited to perform at many competitions and show people what we can do.”

What do you plan to achieve during this season?

“I plan on achieving differents skills and stunts.”

In your opinion, what is different between winter and fall cheer? 

“Fall cheer is just cheering at football games and competitions are more competitive and serious. It’s a lot of hard work and dedication.”

In your opinion, what do you believe is the hardest aspect of winter cheer?

“The hardest part in my opinion is dealing with all the nerves before performing.”

In closing, even though it’s the same school and most of the girls on the team are the same as fall cheer, winter cheer feels like a completely different sport. In fall cheer, cheerleaders are on the side lines, they’re supporting the football players and engaging the crowd so that they can support the team as well. It is all about team spirit and teamwork. Alternatively, winter cheer is all about competition, showcasing the teams best skills while working together as a team. Both winter and fall cheers are fulfilling, but for very different reasons.
