Starting since I was in second grade I was involved in the sport cheerleading. When I first started I was introduced to school cheerleading. Then in the third grade my aunt opened up a gym for select/all star cheerleading. Now, at the age of 15 I have done school cheer for eight years and all star cheer for seven. They are both very similar and different in several ways that some people just would not understand if they don’t understand cheer.
All-star cheer and High school cheerleading have a lot of major differences and as someone who has competed in both I have a lot to share about them. The biggest difference between the two would have to be the motive. High school cheerleading is about school/team sprit whereas all star cheerleading is about determination to win and all about the competition. In case you haven’t heard of all star cheerleading it takes a little bit of high school cheerleading’s focuses but magnifies them with a breakdown of about twenty-five percent worth of stunting, twenty- five percent worth of dance, and seventy-five percent worth of stunting. Whereas high school cheerleading’s target is composed of only

During the summer of 1992, the NBA took center stage as the world watched the greatest team in sports ever assembled joke, pose, and finally play its way to the gold medal at the summer Olympic games. The team was named the "Dream Team" and it featured eleven of the NBA's best players. Names like Michael Jordan, Earvin "Magic" Johnson, and Larry Bird headlined the games and the play of Scottie Pippen and "Sir" Charles Barkley stole the show. After only eight games, the world of USA basketball would never be the same. Since 1992 two more teams called themselves the "Dream Team" and two were simply labeled as "Team USA" but one thing is for certain, International basketball has taken a step in the right direction
Because of the physical demand, skill set needed, and the rules set to tumble, stunt, and jump, competitive cheerleading should be considered an official sport. Yet cheerleading has rules, guidelines, training, and many other things other sports also include. It also is definitely a physical and contact sport which has caused countless injuries throughout the years of the sports existance. But, most people only know cheerleading as sideline (school) cheerleading and have not had a glimpse into the world of competitive (All Star) cheerleading.

Jr. Walker, born Autry Dealt Mixon in Blytheville, Arkansas on June 14, 1931, was a sensational saxophone player, as well as vocalist. Jr. started playing in high school, though he did not meet his All Stars until the late 50’s. In his mid-teens, he formed his first instrumental group, the Jumping Jacks, and adopted the stage name Junior Walker after a childhood nickname. After a move to Michigan, the band was rebranded as Jr. Walker and the All Stars.
The case study in question relates to a proposed dress code for the players in the National Basketball League (NBL). Dress code requirements must not discriminate against members of protected groups as outlined in Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. In order to adequately analyze this issue, we must look at possible areas of discrimination including religious, racial, gender and disability discrimination. In this particular case the players are claiming racial discrimination against the NBL and its commissioner.
As fantasy baseball team owners navigate their way through the arduous dog days of summer, now is the time to tweak MLB lineups to make a run for the league playoffs. If your team has a few pitching gaps, low scoring hurlers that might make the difference between post season appearance and not, there are still some players with low ownership percentages available. Some haven’t met expectations in 2017, but there are prospects on the horizon who may have slipped off the waiver wire radar.
Collegiate athletics has experienced rapid financial gain over the last twenty years. With that known, student-athletes have demanded a larger piece of the pie due to the fact that without the athletes no one would be making any of this money. At the point this suit was filed in 2009 the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) had refused to adopt policies that would allow for players to be compensated.
Bobby Joe wanted to make the a All star team. There were 3 all star teams in his region, Region 1. He was on the B All-Star team. Each season, Bobby Joe would do his best to impress the coaches and the parents. He wasn't big, but he could run really fast. He also had good skills. Bobby didn't know his rating though. He thought that it would be 750 /1000. He was right, but he underscored himself. His rating was 949, in a group of some of the highest ratings in his league. Bobby Joe was discouraged though, he would do better every year, but he would never reach his goal. He didn't know about his rating, and that didn't help him one bit. Bobby Joe would pray every night to be on the A All-Star Team, he was tired of being degraded
I use to work for a high-performance establishment when I live in the San Francisco Bay Area. The easiest way to describe Sports Basement is to compare it to the “Costco” of sporting goods. Sports Basement motto is “Providing high end apparel at basement prices.” (Sports Basement) Four friends who had previously started their success from the dot-com era in Silicon Valley established the company first in San Francisco then opened up more location throughout the Bay Area. I was the marketing associate for the swim and triathlon department for all the stores. As one of the marketing associates for the company, I was coordinating with each department and store managers. Sports Basement has ten departments, which include running, bike, camp-hike, yoga, swim-triathlon, team sports, snow, men, women and kids. (Sports Basement) I got to witness first hand that I was working for a high-performance organization.
Star Athletica’s assertion is based in the belief that a cheerleader’s uniform inherently consists of utilitarian functions. Part of the alleged function of uniforms is to identify cheerleaders as members of a specific team. “Thus, a cheerleader uniform fails the “identified-separately” requirement because the uniform’s stripes, chevrons, zigzags, and color blocks cannot be recognized apart from a cheerleader uniform’s utilitarian aspects but are essential to the uniform’s use or purpose” (Fang). Star Athletica also argues that most designs are inseparable from function because designs can change the way the wearer is perceived. For example, stripes are considered a design element, but the way stripes are applied to the body can serve different functions. Horizontal
Lee Iacocca once said “If you want to make good use of your time, you've got to know what's most important and then give it all you've got.” There are many brilliant organizations such as Black Girls Code and Girls Who Code that are devoted to bridging the gender gap between women and the tech industry. But there aren’t many organizations dedicated to closing the gap between males or males of color and the tech field. All Star Code is a unique organization attempting to fix the diversity gap where males of color are underrepresented. I believe that joining the All Star Code team is important because it is an organization whose vison is to build and encourage young men of color, especially those from low and middle income families. There are
