Cheerleading Cheers for Kids

Inspiration

    Cheerleaders must inspire athletic teams and their fans onward to victory. Raising the spirits of team members and spectators can play a crucial role with a win or loss for any given match. Children cheerleaders are expected to know some basic cheers that encourage the success of their team. One cheer that is child friendly and serves the purpose of inspiration is named "More, More, More". This cheer goes like this: "One, we are the (school's name); two, we couldn't be prouder; three, a little bit louder; four, more, more, more, more". Another inspirational cheer for children is called "Hustle" and it's cheered like this: "To the G! To the O! Go (team name)Go!".

Taunts and Cheers

    Cheers and taunts are both used during sporting competitions and the major difference between the two is that cheers have a longer prose than taunts. Another goal of a cheerleading squad during a sporting event is to taunt the other team and cause them to lose spirit. Young cheerleaders can learn how to use taunts such as "Beat Em, Bust Em" in this manner: "Beat-um, B-U-S-T bust-um; beat-um, B-U-S-T bust-um; that's are custom now; it's time to re-udjust them go (Team Name). Another taunt is "Knock you Out" and it says: "Knock you out; I don't know what you talking about; but (Team Name) will knock you out."

Bragging

    Children who cheer must learn how to brag on the sports team that they represent and their cheerleading squad. Cheers such as "All Across the Nation" are used for boasting and pride. Keep in mind this tactic is done to cause an opponent and their fans to lose spirit. "All Across the nation; there's a (team name) sensation; one by one we beat; we'll knock you off you're feet; a little bit, hey, a little bit; can't you feel it; a little bit, hey, a little bit; can't you feel it!" Another cheer entitled "Step Back" is about team boasting and it goes: "Step back; step back; relax, cause you don't know us; we are the (Team Name) and we got it all".

Standard Cheers

    Young cheerleaders are expected to know at least some basic cheers that have been used by many squads for decades. Cheers such as "We Are Number 1" are a classic type that is familiar with many squads all over the country. "1, We are the (Team Name); 2, a little bit louder; 3, we still can't hear you; WE ARE NUMBER 1 (repeat chant 2x's). Another standard cheer that young cheerleaders should know is "Let's Go Team" and this particular cheer is performed in this manner: "Let's Go, team, Let's go (clap 3x's); Let's Go, team, Let's Go (stomp 3x's); Let's Go, team, Let's Go; and win this thing.
