There are three things we consider when looking for point flyers
- Do they stretch on a regular basis?
- Are they flexible and strong?
- Can they pull air positions while maintaining rock-solid stability?
If you have 2 out of 3, don’t be surprised if your stunt group isn’t chosen to be up at the front.
Realistically speaking, if you have your sights set on taking flight, you MUST focus on these three areas before you will be seriously considered for any flyer spot.
That’s because there are 3x as many positions for bases/backspots as there are for flyers.
Until your air positions look picture-perfect, you are in no position to demand or expect a place in the air. If you want something, you’ve got to work for it — especially when the odds are against you!
You must also be realistic. Many flyers outgrow the position after several years of cheer, and the best cheerleaders accept their new position with grace, give it 100% effort, and use their previous flying experience to help their teammates soar to new heights.
That’s called being a TEAM player, and we place a very high value on that here at CheerCore.
I also wanted to give a shout out to one of our athletes — Clover 🍀 for constantly working on her air positions, and for providing us with a strong example of what all flyers should strive for!
Take a look at some examples below!
