Cheerleading is a fun but physically demanding sport. It can also be a very dangerous sport with high potential for catastrophic injuries due to the extreme skills performed at significant heights. It is crucial that the catchers and spotters have a high level of skill to reduce the risk of injury to the flyers, but it should be remembered that they too can be injured during a stunt.

Appropriate safety measures should always be in place until a skill is completely mastered and can be performed repetitively without fault.
