So today marks the last day of cheerleading for the year which is always sad however this may be my last day of cheerleading ever. I am 21 now and my body is starting to break a lot more easily, I have a recurring dislocating knee which really needs surgery to be fixed and as I’m a flyer (Top person) there is a lot of strain on my knee which isn’t ideal. Another reason is that I’m moving to the South Island which for Americans would be the equivalent of moving out of state which means that I’d have to join another cheerleading team. This is definitely an option I’m keeping in mind because there is actually a University team where I’m moving to and they are a level 4 team which means they are pretty decent. It would also be really nice to be able to cheer with people my age and size because although I’m by no means heavy (43ish kg’s or around 95lbs) I’m heavy compared to the 12-14 year old flyers.
It would be awesome to be able to continue to cheer because once my knee is fully healed I can start tumbling again and my stunting will improve drastically but I guess I won’t know until I move. I’m looking to move around mid-late February as studying closer to the campus would be a lot easier due to having block courses. I’m studying via correspondence which I did this year also, however this year there were block courses where I live but next year the only one is in the South Island and so living closer would make it more feasible to go to them.
Anyway I’m a bit sad about tonight, I’ve been with this club since they started although I did have a two year break due to studying but I’ve been training with this gym since 2009/2010 which is a long time! Anyway I better get ready now though as I have to leave soon..
