AMA Officially Designates Cheerleading a Sport

USA Today published AMA Officially Designates Cheerleading a Sport, stating the American Medical Associations new position on our activity.

The nation’s largest doctors’ group adopted that as policy Monday at its annual meeting in Chicago. AMA members say cheerleading is as rigorous as many other activities that high schools and the NCAA consider sports. Adding it to the list would mean more safety measures for cheerleaders and proper training for their coaches.
