Boys on the squad. . .

My son is one, and his older sister is on a Mini's team. I want to put my son on the squad when he's old enough because I think it will help him and his sister bond while teaching him about team work, however my ex is completely against it because he thinks it'll "teach him to be fruity". What I want to know is how many of the women in this group have boys on cheer squads.

I don't have a boy on the squad but a girl, I've been to some competions with both boys and girls.The boys were on the football teams in the fall and came on the squads in the spring. The way I see it, It take gutts, strength, hard work, and they learn a different type of leadership. It's not "fruity" And where else can you make friends that are girls.
Its nice that you'd like you son and daughter to bond this way, Ibut make sure he feels comfortable with it as well with it.
I'd like to see Dad try to do some of those moves that those kids do, there not as easy as they look!

My son (11) decided to join cheer this year. His sister (10) has been cheering since age 4. They used to have nothing in common and fought like crazy. My son liked, hunting, fishing, football,etc. My daughter baby dolls and makeup, etc. Since he joined cheer they are closer than ever, he taught her to play video games and fish and she taught him what she does. I couldnt be prouder. (my son also continues to play "boy" sports as well.)

My daughter loves that the boys are on the squad. They have more strength and do not drop the girls when they fly. My daughter Loves that they don't cause drama and Have gossip issues like the girls do.
