    For those of you who were a little interested in my foray into tabulating "statistics" for my cheer team. As a group we accomplished the following this year:

    Statistic total Average per game
    Chants 2604 62
    Tumbling skills 1612 38.4
    Sign usage 365 8.7
    Jumps 3325 79.2
    Stunts app 500 11.9


    Difficult to determine exactly how many stunts we performed at our 42 games this year, because I gave each individual athlete credit for participating when one went up in the air. So the actual total that my program gives me includes the number of kids who participated in shoulder sits (2 kids per stunt), 2-man stunts (3 including the back), and group stunts (4).

    I can't decide if the numbers were higher or lower than I expected. One girl pulled 1200 chants by herself. We actually recognized her effort with a PA announcement at a basketball game, and she got quite the applause from the crowd in attendance.

    Just a fun way to give the kids something to work for and track their performance.

    Teamsnap has a feature that lets me custom build them.

    I later entered them into Excel just because it allowed me to manipulate the data to my liking more easily.

    mmmm data!
    I asked because it would be cool to see the games charted on a line graph to see good games and bad games. Not for me, but the kids! Visual learners don't love data like us haha.

    All other variables being equal, I would agree with you, but some of our better games had lower numbers. Took me a little while to realize that it was because our basketball teams are pretty fundamentally sound and when we play our rivals, the refs let things go. The end result is a game that takes 75 minutes instead of 90+ (clock time not game time), fewer timeouts, and fewer opportunities.

    The spikes would be very telling for kids who were padding the numbers. We experimented with soccer games this year (disaster, stupid soccer parents). I had one girl who stood over in the corner one game and did a backhandspring after every chant. Like bunting for a hit when the game is out of reach.

    I think I’m going to buy some perpetual plaques and put our top ten all time career leaders in each category up outside my office door at the school.

    We are back at it again.

    First football game last night. Our team ahead with a Running clock starting midway through the 3rd quarter.

    47 more chants than last years opening game (same opponent, same running clock)

    111 more jumps

    13 more tumbling skills.

    4 administrators praising our efforts to keep the girls entertaining until the very end.

    ETA: I think it’s important to note it was an away game with a pretty abysmal crowd. Our first home game is in 3 weeks. I can’t wait to see how that works out.

    I seriously want you to record a game (heck, even one quarter) to show my team. They look at me like I'm crazy when I say we should be doing double the amount of cheers we currently do.

    Do it live from your Team's Instagram/Twitter for a 5-10 min duration. It should allow you to keep it as an archive afterwards too.

    The issue isn’t figuring out how to make it work, it’s finding someone to do it.

    One of my assistants is 68 and not tech-savvy, and the other does our stat-keeping. I stand on the sideline and coach the kids, calling “offense,” “defense,” “first down,” etc...and maybe being a little too involved in the officiating. LOL

    I’ll get it done though.

    No running clock. Defensive battle that put the girls to sleep in the second quarter. Then the second half, we scored to go ahead, and the girls did a great job cheering the guys on as they made huge defensive stops to hang on tontye lead. Every reporter in our area had our game predicted as a 20+ point loss, and we won 17-10. Fun fun fun night. Love watching my kids WORK big game situations.
