TEAM WORK + TEAM SPIRIT = 
A Successful Season!

Copyright 2018 World of Writer Mom


A New Cheer Season is here! This post was inspired by my daughter, Bella, who is a Junior in High School this year. The past two seasons she worked hard to become a member of a team where it wasn't always easy to fit in. During her freshman year, Bella and her other freshman team mates struggled to gain acceptance and improve their performance skills. It taught my daughter and I a lot about competitiveness and the true meaning of becoming team players. She also learned that "cheer leading" comes with stereotypes and misconceptions. Competitive Cheer is a challenging sport! The training is extensive and involves specific technical components in addition to spirit building!

Stress Management ~ Training Tips


Last year was our first year to experience a state competition.  I saw how exhausting it can be to train hard and compete with so many other talented athletes.  The coaches were tough but fair. Both my daughter and I learned that while we may not have always understood the process and journey that lead to their victory, in the end the reward was well deserved and wonderfully sweet. 

This year is proving to be equally challenging in terms of getting to know and understand new coaching techniques, challenging personalities, and figuring out once again where we fit into the puzzle.  As a parent, I am coming to terms with when to back off and when to participate.  There's so much I'd like to contribute, but you can only offer.  Learning to let go is a process, so be gentle with yourself or your ego will take a hit.

I take my cues from my daughter, who has become an incredible advocate for herself and for others.  The truth is, there will always be challenges whether in sports, business, or personal life experiences.  Your ideas will not always be met with the enthusiasm you imagined or hoped to experience. Embracing all the variables that occur is part of our children's development, and our role is to listen and be supportive.  Will our children always experience fairness, mature interactions with other adults, and equal treatment among team mates?  No.  Will they learn to speak up for themselves and recognize their personal boundaries?  Absolutely!

Here are a few thoughts to take us into the next season. I encourage my children to ask themselves, "How will I be a team player and inspire others toward making positive changes?" These skills are incredibly important, because it will be necessary as our children grow into adults.  Whether in business or personal life, becoming a team member involves learning to collaborate with various personalities,  accepting accountability for our actions, and understanding how group dynamics can influences outcomes.

  2. Oh gosh, cheerleading is definitely tough. I never did it, but I realize it takes a lot of work and people do kind of look down on it sometimes as just waving pom-poms around. That's great your daughter is enjoying the team and learning to speak up for herself when needed.
