I am in eighth grade , all three years of middle school I have done cross country. In sixth grade, I LOVED cross country , in seventh grade I had fun, but I kind of started to wonder about other sports, in eighth grade I still had fun just being in a sport, but I didn't have fun participating. It was something where I dreaded going ot practices and meets.
I wanted to try out for cheerleading this year, but I couldn't because I had already signed up for cross country and had a meet the days of the clinics and tryouts. So I didn't.
I REALLY want to do cheerleading next year, but the tryouts are this spring. My mom is dissapointed because I want to do cheer. Cross country was her sport, and all. But I really want to try out for cheerleading.
My cousin is one year older than me, and she is in her freshman year right now, she made VARSITY cheer, her freshman year! Her and so me other girls and guys from the varsity cheer team, from a different high school than I'll be going to, offered to take me to open gyms and work on my stunting so I will make the team.
I've been thinking about this ALOT and when it all comes down to it, cheer is what I really want to do. But I'm afraid of three things, I'll my family down, I'll miss cross country, and my mom will be dissappointed.
-I would really appreciate opinions on which one you would pick and why. (Please not biased because it's your sport, just honest based on my information!)
Thanks so much ! (:
