Here's you a little something to chew on for a while... although KHSAA does not consider cheerleading a "sport" it does govern bi-laws and criteria that cheerleading has to follow. In other words, cheerleading has rules to follow just like every other "sport" KHSAA governs, yet they are not considered a sport. THIS is addition to, both boys and girls cheer and Title IX would not be a factor for debate. Cheerleading offers scholarships (rather good ones may I add), cheerleaders are generally more athletic than particpants of some other sports, and cheerleaders DO have a "dead period" like other sports governed by KHSAA. So, with that being said.... I personally feel this is a double standard aimed directly at the SPORT of cheerleading.... You have told us all your opinon, now here is some FACTS for you to ponder on!!!
