March is National Cheerleading Safety Month. It is an opportunity each year to spread the word about cheerleading safety and make sure your cheer program follows recognized progressions and safety rules.
Throughout the month, CheerSafe.org provides important tools, trainings and updates to give athletes, coaches and parents the latest information about cheerleading safety. We work with our partners – including USA Cheer and the American Association of Cheerleading Coaches and Administrators – to publicize National Cheerleading Safety Month.
Here are some simple steps you can take during National Cheerleading Safety Month to improve cheer safety:
- Take the iCheerSafe Pledge to cheer safely
- Update your certifications
- Review your Emergency Action Plan
- Spread the word about CheerSafe.org!
March is also National Athletic Training Month. It’s a great opportunity to thank the athletic trainers who keep all of us safe.
