List of cheerleading stunts

Stunts are defined as building performances displaying a person's skill or dexterity. Stunting in cheerleading has been previously referred to as building pyramids. Stunts range from basic two-legged stunts, to one-legged extended stunts, and high flying basket tosses. There are numerous variations of each stunt, multiple entries and dismounts out of the stunt. Stunts vary at each level (level 1–6 according to the USASF). Each level increases the difficulty of the stunt. There are few recognized styles of stunting, coed, all-girl, and hybrid. Cheerleading teams are restricted to specific stunt rules based on the guidelines of certain associations and organizations; Therefore, some stunts may be permitted in certain divisions but illegal in others due to the different stunt regulations. The level of difficulty depends on where the teams stunt and practice as well as the organization they are a part of since cheer associations want to maintain the safety of the cheerleaders by restricting them to try stunts that are too advanced for their level.

Double liberty!!

stunting is one of the hardest aspects of cheerleading. In this video one man stunting is taking place. In order for the top girl to execute the stunts cleanly she must have body control. Any spinning stunts are initiated from the man but finished through the girls hips. Partner stunting is very difficult but as long as the top girl keeps her body in one piece, meaning all of her muscles are being squeezed and she is maintaining a hollow position while pulling up, the man on the bottom can control her.
