My daughter is 4 1/2 and starting cheerleading a few months ago with a local 4 & 5 year old cheer squad. Just wondering if anyone has any advice on training and getting her ready for the more advanced little league cheering. The little league cheer teams here are doing things you'd see a high school or college squad doing LOL We live on a tight budget since my husband is the only one working and we have 3 kids, mortgage, car note, etc so we don't have a ton of money to pay out for gymnastics/etc....any advice is appreciated! Thanks! ♥ Lisa

At 4, she should concentrate on having fun! At 4 she should try everything under the sun! Why have the lable of cheerleader at a pre-school age. My kids tried a million sports and found some that they liked, some they really didn't and some they love!!

If she shows interest make sure you give her tje best train ing and that you are allways candid with her especially if she does something wrong it will help her be a better person and it will teach her to strive for perfection

my daughter is almost 4 and i just put her in "show cheer" aka non competitive...i feel the same way...i wasnt aware she would be cheering with 6 year olds that have done this since they where 4 too! i dont want her to be the odd ball out, but i dont want to force anything on her at so young of age...i really just want her to have fun, but to also be able to keep up with her team... :/

At her age, just let her have fun. I help coach in our local cheer program, and the girls learn the stunts as they move up. If she's still interested over the next few years, look into a tumbling program at your local gymnastics center, or ask a cheer coach. Some of the classes we've done have been as little as $10/week. My daughter has been cheering since she was 5 for the local program, and this year is also in a competitive cheer program and loves it!
