In my opinion, the role of a cheerleader is to cheer on their hometown team and get the crowd cheer for them as well. Perhaps it could be considered giving the team a little confident booster? They, in my opinion, are the team's external support system.
Im cheerleader and my coach makes sure that my team is involved with the school, spirit, fundraiseing, and keeping a clean conservative view to the school to show that we arnt the stereo typical stupid slutty cheerleaders
I think the role of a cheerleader is to be preppy, nice, looks beautiful, smiley, and even though she isn't a nerd she should have outstanding grades and be popular. With a douche as boyfriend
I think in schools it is only a way to get girls doing activities when the sports they do aren't going on... now out of school let's just say eye candy...
To get the crowed going and cheer there team on.
To lead the cheers. It's all in the name.
to cheer their teams on
