Am I too big to be a flyer?
Now I'm about 5'5 and I weigh about 127 or 126 pounds. I'm going to lose weight so I can be healthier. Right now I'm losing weight and stuff. I'm gonna lose about 13 or 12 pounds. I have alot of muscle, that's why I weigh that much, but I am a little chubby. Do you think that is too much for a flyer? I am also okay at being a base, but being a flyer is much easier for me. I'm going to try out for the middle school cheerleading team. Thanks.
if they are bigger than you, you'll prolly be the flyer.
if they're smaller than you, they'll prolly be the base.
but no, your not particularly too big to be the flyer. i've seen lots of different people be flyers. so it just depends on the others.
This one girl on my squad was extremely skinny but she was so tall that she was about to fall headfirst and the bases were practically crying from her weight.
If you're shorter, the bases have more control over you so they can do stunts.
Being heavier than the bases might hold you back but it really depends on how strong they are...
Oh yeah, and being heavy can be cancelled out by having better balance...Seriously it's easier for bases to hold a 160 dead straight girl than a 100 pound wiggling one...plus if you practice (do you have clinics?) as a flyer, you will have experience and you have more of a chance they will take you as a flyer.
