years cheerleaders were men only. Women were not cheerleaders until 1930. Today cheerleaders work in teams. They practise special shouts, dances, and athletic shows. Often the women work separately from the men. But cheerleaders are most exciting when men and women work together. The men throw the women high in the air and catch them. The team members climb on each other's shoulders to make a human pyramid. They yell and dance too. It is like human fireworks. Cheerleaders now have their own contests. Every year there are local, state and national contests for cheerleaders. The best teams make new, faster, and more exciting shows to be the best. And the crowd shouts. They want their cheerleaders to win.
