In 2011, USA Cheer , the national governing body for sport cheering in the United States, launched the sport of STUNT to create new opportunities for female athletes at the collegiate and high school levels while allowing traditional cheerleading to remain a vital and important part of a school’s spirit program. STUNT combines all of the athletic skills from cheerleading and puts them into 4 quarters of head-to-head competition, in a format that was developed to meet the requirements of a sport under Title IX. In the past few years, STUNT has become one of the fastest-growing sports in the nation.
