I coach at Xtreme Cheer and Dance in Langley and we're the only studio in the lower mainland to offer both competitive cheerleading and dance programs. I would check our website and give the studio manager Karen Hall a call (info under contacts at www.xtremecheeranddance.com) to see if cheer would be a good fit for you. Also, in regards to the 'bouncing around with Pom Poms for boys' comment, All-Star cheerleading involves a routine combining dance, stunts, gymnastics and showmanship performed with the goal of winning competitions. No poms or boys involved, just a group of positive, fit and team orientated girls. Hope this info helps!

Cheerleading is an extremely athletic activity, Andrea, and there's absolutely nothing wrong with it.

If Chauney's daughter is interested in either or both, I say go for it! Most teens would rather be sitting in front of a telly, absorbed in a video game.

Chauney, I'm glad to hear you've found a dance studio. I also just heard about extracurricular cheer teams from a friend of mine, but (not having girls myself) have not a clue how to find one, but I'd ask at the dance studio...they may have an idea.

I would pick a different activity besides cheerleading. I wouldn't want my daughter waving pom poms for some boy to get a scholarship to colege

I'm new to this and thought that's what I did, LOL!! Thanks so much for the information. I have contacted a dance studio in my area and waiting for them to call me back.

Your best bet would be to check into groups in your area. An online search of such groups should at least get you started.

And, just so you know, most people won't respond at all to a post like this, or will respond fairly sarcastically, because it's a fairly ambiguous post.

Maybe try again with the heading "cheerleading and dance", and then for the body, say something like "I'm looking for how to get started with my daughter in either or both of these activities, does anyone have any advice where to start?"

Hopefully that would bring out more info... ;-)

can both be considered sports.

What about them?
