5th entry for May'12 VoM

The 5th video entry for May VoM is by Danny Jumari and tagged by Jay. This is a video of the performance put up by NYP Grizzlers Cheerleading Team for NYP Club Crawl. Grizzlers had impressed me many times in their short span of formation of less than a year. I have seen previous videos of their camps and some performances and I can really see them improving as they moved along. Great job by their coaches Fairul and Jay too, you guys really brought lots of joy and value to the cheerleading community in Singapore.

BPoM 2nd entry for May'12

2nd Blog Post of the Month May is a post by Elvie Na. This is a post about her experiences and thoughts on SNCC 2012.

Some words from the Elvie Na:

"still, it the process that counts. and honestly, i really love this team alot, loved all that we've been through. i love this routine because it gave me many opportunities and challenged me a lot. i am proud of what we've accomplished. deep down in our hearts, we know what we really deserved, the spirit of champions.
i wouldn't want any other team but kr steppers.
it's been an awesome and remarkable journey, whether this is my closing chapter or not, at least i know, that we made it this far. i've made it this far.
- Elvie Na

Everyone is a winner in their own rights. To have the blessing to be able to stand on the blue mats amd perform your routine for 2.30mins is already to me the most wonderful moment of one's life. My 2.30 mins had so far been the most memorable 2.30mins of my life so far that I could still remember.

BPoM 1st entry for May'12

The 1st entry of BPOM May is by Ochi. In this post Ochi is discussing about Pareto's Principle aka as the 80/20 rule. Ochi's aim is whereby we can all create a 100/200 rule, whereby 100% of your organization generates more than 200% of your output.

A little abstract from the post.

"The wisdom of chop sticks say that if you guys stick together, its hard to be broken. As we have seen or know, a bunch of chopsticks all made of wood would still be far stronger than a bunch of chopsticks comprised of gold, stone and wood. Why is that so, because a structure of different densities is definitely weaker than a structure that is homogeneous." - Ochi

3rd entry for May'12 VoM

A video by Zhaoming for our 3rd entry for May VoM. Zhaoming, current coach of NP and SMU cheerleading and also the coach of Team Lions (CAIO 2012). A awesome player himself and then becoming a even greater coach to impart all his experiences, knowledge and techniques to the new generation of cheerleaders. Great video taken of the double toe touch 1-1-1 which Magnum did during SNCC 2012 which left many people mouths wide open. You think possible to do triple next year? hmm. lol. Continue to support VoM.

2nd entry for May'12 VoM

2nd entry for May VoM is by Kahau. Another 1 of my favorite cheerleader out there. Toss cupie, full around,liberty tick tock low high. I first met Kahau almost 5-6 years ago, say short time but also not so short, and he told me his dream back then; and currently he is definitely living his dreams and much more. Kahau is another great example of never giving up and working hard for your dreams. I cannot wait to see your partner stunt routine in Nationals 2013. Jiayou, I will be your supporter.

1st entry for May'12 VoM

The 1st entry for May VoM is by Clement from Wildcards. Toss to extension, hands left cupie, pop over with Joline. This might be quite a common stunt nowadays, but you have to look back to where Clement came from to realise how amazing this achievement is not only to him and also to the whole cheer community. Clement used to be small sized and not at all the strongest around; but he now showed everyone that with hard work, gyming almost everyday, you can still change everything around. Clement had really showed to the whole cheer community in Singapore that size does not matter but heart does. As long as you have the heart, anything is achievable. Jiayou Clement, you will achieve so much more in future, and you must always remember where you came from and how you started cheerleading. Cheers

Matthew's Blog Post: After thoughts from SNCC 2012

Comments by Chaang:

As Mathew has rightfully pointed out,

Cheerleading requires you to reach the level that you depend on your teammates with your life.

''You entrust your safety in them, have complete faith in them, and depend on them to bring back the trophy with you. I have not seen any other sport that compensates your other players in order to move the team forward. ''

I define compensation as a form of sacrifice. Be it your safety for the sake of others' or your time that could have been otherwise spent with your loved ones, - cheerleading is a sport that requires such compensation in order for EVERYONE to move forward.

It is important, however, to understand that you should not be compensating in the form of wrong techniques. For example, you choose to muscle a flyer upwards because she is not jumping. Or a flyer chooses to execute her twist earlier because her bases are not giving her sufficient pop. This is a wrong form of compensation.

The chain is only as strong as the weakest link. When the situation allows, we may compensate time/effort to strengthen this weakest link. When time is running short, however, compensation is no longer possible and the team themselves must decide if they want to take a risk with the weakest link, or have the weakest link replaced with a stronger one. There is no right or wrong answer. There is only a desired or undesired outcome to the decision that you have made!


Senior Vice- Chairman
Wildcards Cheerleading Team, Singapore"

Congratulations once again to Matthew for winning $50

BPoM 4th entry for April'12

The 4th BPoM entry for April - Dont4get2fly by Jennifer.

Great post about the lessons cheerleading had taught her. How to pick yourself up each time I fall, how to grit you teeth and continue no matter how tough it is. And many more lessons that cheerleading taught about life. Continue to read the post many more life lessons.

A little abstract from the post.

"Even as we stop training and moved away from cheer, we should not forget about the spirit behind it and not forget to fly in every other aspect of our life. To continue to fly in our own way be it in love, relationships, friends, work & family." - Jennifer

BPoM 3rd entry for April'12

The 3rd entry of BPOM January is by Perle and tagged by Ochi for another post on NUS Alpha Verve Road to Nationals 2012.

A little abstract from the post.

"Cliche as it sounds (do pardon me here), the journey to this Nationals definitely wasn't easy. Sweat, tears, pain and blood were shed and shared as we encountered many obstacles and suffered countless injuries along the way. However, the team spirit, joy, laughter and experiences shared together and the bond formed between us definitely made everything worthwhile. I would say that almost all of us gained something out of this journey - we've mastered more stunts, became physically fitter and more importantly, emerged mentally stronger as Cheerleaders and individuals.

Also, super proud of the achievements we've attained!"
- Perle
