So when as a cheer community and consumers will we acknowledge the fact that the all star cheerleading industry is exploitative and their only goal is to make a profit? They see us, the cheerleaders, as a means in which they can make money. All the ‘exclusive’ competitions, ‘cheerlebrities’ promoting companies (bows, pumpup,etc), ‘cheerlebrities’ showing up as guests at camps? If you compare all star cheerleading to other club sports such as basketball, baseball, soccer, etc you will realize how ridiculous it all is. This industry is using well known KIDS and well known gyms to up their paychecks. Why is this okay? Why are we allowing this? Who decided that paying $50+ to go see a cheerleading competition (Majors) made sense?
