March recognizes National Cheerleading Safety Month. During the month, take the opportunity to review safety protocols with your cheer team. It’s also an excellent time to brush up on first aid practices and update certifications.
Just like any other sport, cheerleaders risk injury especially if they don’t follow safety protocols. Even when they do, an injury is inherent to the event. Knees twist, muscles strain, and joints become dislocated. Athletes need to be aware of the risks an respond accordingly. National Cheerleading Safety Month addresses these risks and how to reduce the impact on the participants.
