The Step-Lock is the most basic cheerleading stunt. It is important to master this technique before continuing on to other stunts.
Base: Lunge to side, creating a good "pocket" for the flyer to step into, keeping the other leg locked out and straight. With your left hand hold the top of flyer's foot. Wrap the other hand around the flyer's calf just below the knee, pulling into your body. Remember to keep your shoulders forward.
Flyer: Place your foot into the base's "pocket" while placing your hands on the base's shoulders. On a 1-2, down-up count, push off the bases shoulders while locking out your knee and straightening your upper body to stand up position.
Backspot: Begin with your hands on the flyer's waist/hips. On the count, dip and assist the flyer up, continuing to hold onto the flyer's waist/hips.
NOTE: Bases can lunge on either leg. Flyers will also need switch feet accordingly
Flyer: Step back reaching down to hold onto the base's shoulders.
Backspot: Continuing to hold onto the flyer's waist/hips, resist flyer's weight down to the ground.
