    What is the name of the stunt in which the cheerleaders goes up to a full then folds herself in half and falls forward to be caught by her bases? I heard of "the plunge of death", but i dont think thats uits oficial name.

    I've heard a waterfall. But I've also heard was Senior Elite did in their 2nd stunts in 07-08 was a 'waterfall' too. So who knows. haha. I like death drop, all though it sounds a little disheartening.

    I seriously think my team made up our names. Because we did basically that same thing you were talking about, but we didn't call it a waterfall, we called it our "back walkover stunt."

    I've always heard the term "foldover" used. That's at multiple gyms, but there is like a million names for everything in cheerleading so I don't think their is an official name for it.
