Cheerleader Competition


First, I would like to thank everyone (especially my Facebook friends) for your help with suggestions about our proposed pro cheerleader competition. As you will note in the last paragraph below titled: Cheerleader competitions, the first "Battle of the NFL Cheerleaders was held in Hollywood, Florida in 1979. At this 1979 cheerleader competition, two cheerleaders from each team competed in various athletic events. Many of you had a problem with this two cheerleaders per team format, especially since most teams now have over two dozen cheerleaders. Many also suggested that instead of the 100 yard dash, obstacle courses, and other events, we use the college cheerleader competition which is a three to five minute dance format with from ten to fifteen cheerleaders per team.

Another great suggestion which we had not even considered: including the NBA cheerleaders. We had not considered the NBA cheerleaders because our original plan was to have this event here in Houston, TX, after the February Super Bowl.. This would not have been a good time for NBA cheerleaders.

So here is what we are going to do. We plan to have this event in early July of this year; this will be after the NBA finals are over and before the NFL exhibition games begin. This will be a three of four day event. Each competing  team will have 12 to fifteen members. These teams will compete on stage and be judged by a panel of 7 to 9 celebrity judges. The eight teams with the highest scores will compete on the final evening to determine the top three times.

Another (I'm reluctant to call it a problem) situation that many of you were "concerned" about was our plan to have this event sponsored by a foreign based adult beverage company. We will find domestic sponsors. Now the hunt begins for a city to host this early July 2017 event.
 

 

 

National Football League Cheerleading

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
 

National Football League Cheerleading, or simply NFL Cheerleading, is a professional cheerleading organization in the United States. 26 of the 32 NFL teams include a cheerleading squad in their franchise. Cheerleaders are a popular attraction that can give a team more coverage/airtime, popular local support, and increased media image. In 1954, the Baltimore Colts became the first NFL team to have cheerleaders. They were part of the Baltimore Colts Marching Band.

Most NFL cheerleading squads are a part-time job. Often, cheerleaders have completed or are attending a university, and continue on to other careers after cheering for one to four seasons. The members participate in practice, training camp, games, appearances, photo shoots, and charity events. Apart from their main duties of cheering during the football games, the cheerleaders have many other responsibilities. Nearly every team member is available for appearances at schools, events, conferences, etc., for a set fee.

An anticipated annual event is the release of each squad's calendar, featuring members for each month in swimsuits, lingerie, or uniforms.

As well as being a mainstay of American football culture, the cheerleaders are one of the biggest entertainment groups to regularly perform for the United States Armed Forces overseas with performances and tours being enlisted by the USO. Teams send their variety show, an elite group of their best members, to perform combination shows of dance, music, baton twirling, acrobatics, gymnastics, and more. In February 2007, the Buffalo Bills even sent a squad of eight along with their choreographer into the war zone of Iraq. In 1996, the San Francisco 49ers Cheerleaders and their director helicoptered into the war inflicted country of Bosnia with the USO and the U.S. Army. The U.S. troops in Korea have been entertained during the holiday season with the USO's Bob Hope Tour. Over the years, the tour has featured NFL cheerleaders from the Dallas Cowboys and the San Francisco 49ers.

 

Cheerleader competitions[edit]

The first "Battle of the NFL Cheerleaders" was held in 1979 in Hollywood, Florida. Two cheerleaders from each cheerleading team compete against other mini-teams in various athletic events. The events include kayaking, 100 yard dash, obstacle courses, and other events. The Minnesota Vikings Cheerleaders took home the title in 1979. In 1980, it was held in Atlantic City, New Jersey and the Washington Redskinettes were the champions. The winners were Shiona Baum and Jeannie Fritz, and each received a car as the grand prize. The competition was resurrected in 2006 by the NFL Network, and was called NFL Cheerleader Playoffs. The playoffs were taped between July 17 and July 21, 2006 at Six Flags New England in Agawam, Massachusetts. Two-person teams of cheerleaders from 25 of the NFL's 32 teams participated in a four-event series of competitions. The first two events tested the cheerleaders' athletic abilities in events like the 100-yard dash, kayaking, tandem cycling, and the obstacle course. The third event was a trivia challenge called "Know Your NFL." The final competition was a one-minute dance routine, similar to what they normally perform on NFL sidelines. The San Diego Chargers team (Casie and Shantel) defeated the Atlanta Falcons and St. Louis Rams squads to win the overall championship. The 3 teams finished in a three-way tie, with 210 points. The Chargers were declared the winners based on winning the dance competition.
