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!
