    If it makes anyone feel better on my university all-girl team I'm one of the shortest flyers at 5ft4 but I'm naturally more stocky in the 110lbs - 120lbs range. The flyers on my team tend to be tall (around 5ft5+) but slim. Meanwhile I'm always in a battle to not put on too much muscle. Different strokes for different folks!

    My daughter is 4' 11 and weights 80 pounds. Is she on the small side or in the middle for college flyers on coed??

    If you read the original post you can compare flyer examples. She's the same size as the smaller example.

    She is definitely in the small child/cheer baby (lol) category

    Mine is 5'2 and weighs 80 pounds. She's all legs. She still has a couple years to grow too. Not sure how this will translate to college cheer....
