20 Cringey Pics These Cheerleaders Want Buried

Pro cheerleaders surely have lots of pep. They’re always cheerful and ready to roar…it’s all part of the program. Whether they cheer at the college level or are rooting on some of the world’s best ballplayers, these gals (and a couple of guys) are in it to win it. They shake their stuff, jump, and holler, and do all they can to let the team know that they’re on their side.

Fans can’t get enough of the energetic fun. They love watching these women do their thing, especially since the outfits are so skimpy. But of course, there’s the athleticism, along with those mega-watt smiles that keep those in the crowd just as happy.

Here are 20 pics of cheerleaders. But they are not necessarily the pics they’d put out there on their own. Consider them cringeworthy, if you will. Perhaps you’ll still love them, but you may also get a laugh.

20 Flexible Is An Understatement

Let’s hope this gal has good balance. That crazy kick is a mile high, proving cheerleaders are super flexible. With a sky-high kick like this, this confident cheerleader would make any squad.

She is showing off her stellar skills on the field, something the team surely appreciates. Although, she may feel sore come sunset!

19 Hairy Situation

These cheerleaders are certainly well-coordinated. While their outfits vary, one thing is the same. Their high-flying hairdos are well-choreographed, down to the strand.

Perhaps it is a requirement to have long hair in order to be part of this routine. Pixie cuts just can’t catch the wind the same way.

18 Right Back At Ya

Via: youtube.com

These gals are bending over backward to show their commitment to the team. One slip and they’ll fall, so this move takes muscles. It takes strength to stay in such a position, so it is evident that these ladies keep in shape.

It’s not only the players who have to keep their bodies in fine form.

17 Bird’s Eye View

This move takes practice, but usually, the warm-ups are done when there are no crowds watching. Come game time, there are lots of folks in the stadium to see the cheerleaders and players.

This crowd got more than they bargained for with this “Peeping Tom” position. Hopefully, this cheerleader had something on underneath her uniform.

16 A Leg Up

Via: yougabsports.com

These gals have perfected this pose, but the one in the middle is in something of a compromising position. While her form is fantastic, this angle is not exactly something she would want on full display.

From the stands, it’s remarkable, but up close, this pic is a tad too much.

15 Let’s Hope They Caught Her

Getting tossed ten feet in the air is quite a fun experience, but the trip back down is bound to be a disaster if the crew doesn’t have any coordination.

Things look fine at this moment, but if the team isn’t paying total attention, the whole thing could fall apart. Ouch!

14 A Little Too Enthusiastic

Via: star-telegram.com

Part of what cheerleaders must do to keep things energetic is to smile, shout, and shake up the crowd. But this overly enthusiastic gal is going a tad overboard.

Her perkiness is at level 10, making us think she may have one cup of coffee too many pre-game. She could stand to take it down a notch.

13 The Biggest Bows

Via: saintfranciscougars.com

We all know that cheerleaders must match, but these big white bows are not part of the usual uniform. A small hair tie would do the trick, but this squad is making a style statement.

The guys got out of wearing them, but the ladies are flaunting their bows big time.

12 Ride ‘Em Cowgirls

Via: thesidelinereport.com

A Western theme is always popular, and these blonde bombshells are showing the fans why cowgirls make the best cheerleaders. Their flannel shirts and Daisy Dukes are not usual uniform attire, but these cheerleaders may be starting a trend.

Who needs the typical uniform when this look goes from work to play in a snap?

11 Human Swan

Via: pinterest.com

This cheerleader is plenty bendable; it’s hard to believe she has bones. As she shows off her flexibility, the crowd was surely in awe of her athleticism.

The other members of the squad certainly have a lot to live up to, but it would be hard to compete with this swan-like lady.

10 Tryouts

These four ladies are hoping for a spot on the squad. They are parading around for the judges to prove they’ve got what it takes to be part of the team. Surely, lots of girls want to be cheerleaders, so the competition is fierce.

They must give it their all or else they won’t be selected.

9 Santa’s Helpers

Via: wncx.radio.com

If Mrs. Claus looked like these ladies, Santa would never leave the North Pole. These holiday-ready cheerleaders are decked out in Christmas costumes, but they’d be plenty cold if they lived with Santa’s helpers.

No matter the weather, these ladies show the fans that they’re in good spirits. “Merry” is their mood.

8 Overdressed

Via: sportingnews.com

It must be cold outside if these cheerleaders are so covered up. The usual look is belly-baring, with plenty of leg showing and not much material.

But these gals must cheer on the team even when the temps drop, so they have to keep warm so they don’t catch a cold.

7 Trick Or Treat

Via: Twitter.com

Halloween has made its way to the field. These happy cheerleaders are ready for the holiday, all dressed in costume to get the fans riled up. Their looks are creative and fun, giving them a chance to break away from the usual matching outfits.

Perhaps after the game, they can go trick or treating. They’ll burn off the extra calories in no time.

6 Too Much Hairspray?

Via: nola.com

All this hair up in the air is quite the sight to see. This blonde cheerleader has hair that’s defying gravity, and it seems like it’s blocking her view in the process.

Perhaps a ponytail would be more professional, but part of the excitement is seeing all that hair whip wildly. She’s obviously used to the distraction.

5 Throwback

Via: businessinsider.my

Cheerleaders have been around for a long time, and over the years, the looks have changed. This gal is pumped up with her pom-poms and she’s ready to get the crowd going.

Her hair is almost as big as her pom poms, but she owns the look with confidence. Wonder what she’s up to now?

4 Five Alarm

Via: germanpascual.com

This cheerleader is dressed like a firefighter, but something tells us she wouldn’t be much help in the case of a real emergency. She’s certainly causing the temperature to rise, but that has more to do with her outfit than any actual flames.

The guys on the team must be distracted, but it’s her duty to do her job.

3 Practice Makes Perfect

Via: shawnhubbardphoto.com

Before the big game, the girls must work on their routines time and time again. They can’t simply go on the field and do their stunts for the first time. In order for the squad to be sensational, they must practice plenty.

This particular cheerleader is getting her jump on point, and she looks like she’s ready for game time.

2 Defying Gravity

Via: ultimatecheerleaders.com

Either it is super windy or this woman has hair that is unexplainable. Her ‘do is two feet high, probably because she just jumped or a gust of wind worked its way into her hair.

She seems unfazed, but once she saw this photo, she must have been as amazed as the rest of us.

1 Let’s Try This Again

Via: slydor.com

Something clearly went wrong with this routine. Girls are falling everywhere and the plan has gone to pieces. Perhaps this pic was simply snapped at an unfortunate time, but this situation does not look good.

Let’s hope the team won the game anyhow because this squad didn’t do much to make it happen.
