NFHS Responds to the American Academy of Pediatrics Statement on Cheerleading Injuries

NFHS LogoThe NFHS published a response to the AAP’s suggestions.

The National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) agrees with many of the recommendations and, in fact, has worked for more than 20 years to minimize risk for high school cheerleaders. In 1988, the NFHS published its first guidelines for sideline cheerleading. Those guidelines became the basis for the NFHS Spirit Rules Book, which was first published in 1992.
