And local cheerleaders are glad that their sport is being highlighted
The definition of a sport is "An activity involving physical exertion and skill in which an individual or team competes against each other for entertainment."
And they absolutely compete…2 and a half minute routine with cheers, jumps, stunts, tumbling and a dance.
Like Navarro, many high schools teams in Florida cheer on other teams while balancing the competitive cheer season.
