A CHEERLEADING group in Gibraltar is challenging common perceptions of the discipline in order to attract more boys.

The Gibraltar Cheerleading Association is putting together a mixed team of boys and girls to perform ‘Street Cheer’ routines.

Street Cheer fuses several dance genres and helps develop skills including balance, flexibility and team work.

  1. The whole point of “Cheerleaders” is to distract the onlookers from the fact that American football is mind-numbingly boring and goes on for hours. Which is why young nubile women prancing around in bikinis fit the bill, to an extent, but boys don’t, I hope !

  2. Dear Nick – I side with PM’s point of view. I’ve seen my Brother in NY dance in a short skirt ….. I prefer the girls!
    On “American Football” – definitely one of the dumbest, time consuming, least action/hr of any sport I’ve seen .. except sleeping after a beer & half time snack
