A cheerleader is one who participates in the act of cheerleading. Such individuals, usually female, but sometimes male, are part of an organized group that promotes team spirit and effectiveness for a sponsored sports team. Cheerleaders rally both athletes and fans by intoning a set of spoken cheers, and performing a series of gymnastic achievements including tumbling, flips, etc.
