“How Do I Balance My Team and My Personal Life?”

“How Do I Balance My Team and My Personal Life?”

This is a question that so many young girls have!  When you are deciding whether or not to try out for a cheer, pom or dance team, or when you have just recently made a team, you start to ask yourself how you are going to balance your new life!  Suddenly you have to think about time management, keeping a clean calendar, and staying organized.

Scheduling is hard, finding the energy is tough, and you want to make sure to give everything in your life enough time!  Most every cheerleader or dancer goes through this at some point in their life. You are not alone! Remember, you have friends and family who love you and understand your commitment, so don’t feel bad if you need a night to rest!  You will eventually have time for ALL the things you love.


Keep a good, organized calendar.

Prioritize the important things first.

Use your downtime to take care of little tasks, chores, and errands. (Get it out of the way!)

Make sure you get plenty of rest.

Drink lot of water, and stay healthy. (Feed your body like a machine!)

Don’t forget to make time for yourself!
