Question by Princess: What can I do to make a great cheerleading captain and show my authority, but still come of as nice and fun?
I am one of 3 captains on our cheerleading squad. I want to show the new girls that cheer is a serious sport and that they need to behave, etc. during practice so that no one gets hurt during stunting and we learn more skills.

Try not to get frustrated.
Trade out negative words for positive.
Instead of “Face the front it looks sloppy”. Try “Remember the crowd wants to see your pretty faces”.
