We asked our athletes, coaches, and fans, “What do you love about STUNT?”
Kayla Renee Duffey, STUNT Coach – I absolutely love how STUNT has transformed the worlds perception of cheerleaders and the athleticism that it takes to tumble, jump and stunt! This is a huge step for women’s sports and I hope to bring it to my college as the cheer coach!!! I’m so excited to see how the sport evolves and expands once it is approved as an emerging sport!!!! ❤❤❤💪🏼💪🏼💪🏼💪🏼💪🏼🎊🎊🎊🎊🎊
Daneen Kosters Rainbow, STUNT Coach – I love that the routines are inclusive of every girl. There is always a way to have every girl on the mat at some point. Also the fact that both teams perform the same routines takes away the favoritism aspect of the sport.
Bailey Reiter, STUNT Coach – I love how STUNT takes all the elements of Cheerleading and highlights them so that each athlete can shine in their own way. It pushes athletes and team to achieve greatness. Since it is our teams first year competing for us STUNT is not about the points that earn it’s about the potential that are team does have and its about growing with each game we play
Maddy Smith, STUNT Athlete, Alma College – I love how STUNT gives cheerleaders the opportunity to play games. In competitive cheer there isn’t much strategy. Where in STUNT you have to not only know your own team well but also your opponent. But it’s still simple enough too for non-experts to understand. STUNT also gives the athletes who excel in one category a chance to thrive. If you are a great jump and tumbler but maybe not such a good stunter you have your chance to be on mat doing what you love. Stunt is the fastest growing sport in the college world and it’s easy to see why.
Brittany Chandler, STUNT Athlete – UT Tyler – I love how STUNT not only pushes you to be better but focuses on form and technique rather than just skill. Also how you go against someone doing the exact same routine makes it so much more competitive.
