    what are your views on the drama between high school cheerleaders and all stars cheerleaders? is equal amount of work being put in on both teams in your opinion?

    I think that it depends on how hard you work. I have done all star and high school and I find them both very hard in their own ways.

    It just depends on the school and level of cheering! I think high school cheer is harder on your body because of the hard floor, but Allstar can do the same damage. Some high school teams are better than Allstar teams! But then again that just depends on your team.

    I also think it depends on your school & it's coaches. I personally had terrible school coaches (they were raised as dancers but couldn't get the dance coach position so they assumed cheer would be easier. :rolleyes:) These coaches believed allstar cheerleading was the worst thing to happen to our planet. I.could.not.take.it. They couldn't stop telling me and my friend who cheered at my gym "I just don't like allstar cheerleaders." But if your school is closely related to allstar...it's a different story. But mine was awful.

    I think it depends on the level of competition for HS squads, you have some squads that do not compete, in that case you may want to do AS; however, if your HS is very competitive, I like HS.....at least according to my daughter

    A lot of AS cheerleaders say that HS cheer isn't as hard, and all we do is say "Go Team Go". But it's veryyy different. I've done both, but I think HS cheer is a little harder because we don't really get "levels" to work our way up. It's just we start stunting and when the coach wants to teach us something new, they teach it. I love doing bothh. :)

    it totally depends on the school. some schools are doing full ups to lib and giddy ups and some can't even hold a prep.
    my rival school dropped a thighstand at their last assembly :(

    Okay. I believe that all competition cheerleading is a sport. No matter the level. Sideline cheer is so difficult, but does not necessarily meet the criteria of a "sport", as you don't compete with anyone. Allstar cheerleaders who constantly belittle highschool cheer is my absolute pet peeve. Cheer is cheer. How do we expect others to respect our sport if we don't respect the different types? Excuse me for pulling a race card out, but that's like Asians hating the Indians. They're both Asian, just a different type.

    I've seen it once, but it was with 3rd graders, and their coaches weren't watching or telling them how to do it properly...

    It depends on what type of program either has. Check out what they have done at compitions.
