Top Picks for Cheerleading Shoes, from your About Cheerleading Guide



Prep Grip

2017-03-13T11:58:53Z

The prep grip is the grip used in most two-legged stunts once the stunt has hit. In the prep grip, the base turns her hands away from each other so that one hand cradles the front portion of the foot (the ball of the foot and toes) and the other hand cradles the back portion of the foot (under and at the back of the heel). The inside of the base’s wrists will be facing each other under the foot. In this grip, aim to cover as much of the bottom of the foot as possible with your hands, while still being able to grip the toe and heel.



Toe , or Toeing

2017-03-13T11:58:53Z

To toe means to place your weight in your toe during a stunt. This will cause you to point your toe, forcing it downward and placing additional weight and strain on your bases’ front hands and may cause the stunt to fall forward. Correct this by shifting your weight into the center of your foot, directly below your ankle.

2017-03-13T11:58:53Z

Proper body alignment, or keeping a straight line from your head to the ankle(s) of your supporting foot or feet, is vital for success in stunting. It prevents heeling and toeing and makes you much easier to control in the air. This is especially important when performing extended stunts, where there is naturally a smaller base of support under the stunt.
