The Texas University Scholastic League (UIL) has approved a one year pilot program for game day cheer competition! Meaning cheer squads will compete for a state title like any other sport. This is big in the cheer world in Texas and I am excited about the recognition and the opportunity to it will give these kids. Cheerleaders are more than just girls in bows and short skirts. They are athletes, who work as hard on their sport as any other sports team. I do have questions though and can't wait to see what guidelines they put in place. The competition will start the 2015-16 school year.
