So far I have not seen a place to discuss 'older' athletes learning new cheer skills. I'm hoping I'm not alone in this world... I'm 20 years old and have been cheering since I was 13. I cheer on an Open 4.2 team in Canada. I have level 4ish skills all around except for tumbling. When I first started cheer my parents did not have the extra funds to put me in tumbling classes or privates of any sort. Now, being an independent adult I decided to give it a go with a "it's never too late" attitude. Let me tell you though... the shame of doing handstand drills and learning how to front/back walkover is so real. I'm surrounded by little kids pulling tucks and here I am this adult learning how to be a level 1 athlete. From when I first started cheering I had big dreams of being a high level athlete with high level tumbling and etc... I guess those dreams never died. Thus, I am hoping that there are others in the same boat as me so we can share struggles, ideas, tips, and advice.
