Contrary to misleading headlines, cheerleading is getting safer. To prove it, we asked the experts from the USA Cheer Safety Council to answer questions from our readers and editors.
In February, USA Cheer launched the USA Cheer Safety Council to raise the awareness of cheerleading safety and education, address misconceptions about injuries, and provide data to ensure proper training of athletes. On hand to answer our safety questions were Dr. Jeffrey Dugas of the American Sports Medicine Institute (ASMI) and Bill Seely, executive director of USA Cheer, who give us the real deal when it comes to cheer safety.
