Ask if the coach is trained, if there are trained medical trainers available during practices in case an injury does occur and take a look at the area your daughter will be practicing in. Make sure that the coach is qualified to be training the types of gymnastic moves that are now routinely used and that there is some sort of qualification system in place where cheerleaders must prove proficiency in one stunt before moving on to something more complicated. Making sure that the environment your daughter will be cheering in is safe will help to reduce the possibility of serious injury.
