The Huge Benefits Of Cheerleading Camps
Posted by Nancy on May 24, 2010
There are multitudes of camps out there for young men to hone their skills in a wide variety of sports. There are also a good number of camps available for young women to learn more about baseball, basketball, tennis, golf and numerous other sporting activities. In addition, there are some great camps available for young people who want to get involved in cheerleading or for those who are already involved but would like to improve their skills.
Such camps are a great way to meet new friends and to spend time in improving skills that will benefit the individual. Some organizations send their entire squads to summer cheerleading camps while for others that is not possible. Individuals can sign up to attend cheerleading camps where they can be exposed to new skills and techniques and can spend time with others who share their passion for cheerleading. Perhaps the most important benefit is that these camps tend to focus on safety and teach ways to perform routines that will reduce the likelihood of injury. This is something to be taken very seriously because statistics show that 65 percent of all catastrophic injuries that happen to young girls are a result of cheerleading mishaps. Estimates put the number of girls treated in emergency rooms each year from such accidents as high as 30 thousand. For this reason, it is imperative to learn the safety elements of cheerleading routines.
Cheerleading camps also provide a time for bonding with others who love the sport and will be practicing and performing the same skills. As with every other sport, there is competition involved so one learns to work well in this environment. Because the workout routines can be difficult and will require strength and self discipline, one should be in good physical shape before committing to attend one of these camps
