What major safety precautions are taken during practices? There are several safety precautions observed during practice. Below is a list of the major items.

  1. Cheerleaders are directly supervised.
  2. Practices are held in a suitable location for the activities of the cheerleaders. Appropriate mats are supplied.
  3. Skills progression is practiced in order to ensure that cheerleaders build upon mastered technique when learning more difficult and advanced stunts or tumbling. Spotters are responsible for assisting or catching the top person in a stunt, with a priority to protect the head, neck, and shoulders of the top person coming off a stunt. 
  4. Cheerleaders will not be allowed to perform skills at events unless technique is mastered.

Cheerleading is an activity that builds self-confidence, leadership, and communication skills. Safety begins with these, especially leadership. Instilling these qualities in cheerleaders helps prevent accidents since all cheerleaders hold safety as a priority.
