@tends2dogs   I was a closet cheerleader... practiced all the time in my room infront of the mirror..... always wanted to be one! BUT, Only the popularSUPER RICH  girls were ever Cheerleaders in my schools, same for homecoming queen etc.  They were always   the  "click" girls who never talked to anyone not in their circle..... they had the boobs, the clothes, the hair..... the boys on the football team after them.....

 

 I grew up in a rich part of  town....  Many doctors, lawyers and such( Bill Gates area)  In my school there was the super popular GROUP .... then  the mid crowd GROUP( me) and then the dregs of society GROUP Who no one acknowledged or spoke to.  So cruel and unfair... JUST LIKE LIFE IS IN THE REAL WORLD.  


Ah yes, the clicks.  I remember them well.  I fear it was a common phenomenon, maybe still is??  I am sure many young girls were queens, cheerleaders, singers, etc in front of the mirror in their bedrooms.  Today they are most likely on Youtube LOL! 

 

BTW, good seeing you Smiley Wink.

For the three years preceding my senior year in HS, the captain of each cheerleading squad had had to leave school before graduating for experiencing difficulties presumably caused by some member of the football team.

 

I had learned twirling as a little girl and did some exhibitions, but I had joined the band in junior high, so twirling was over.

 

Most of the girls in my class were encouraged to join the marching band and graduated. No, no, and no. 


@violann  difficulties caused by some member of the football team ??  How PC of you!  LOL!  That is one way of putting it. Smiley Wink.

i thought it would be fun and made the drill team one year . the uniform was a very short  dress with gold braided trim and epaulets. it was heavy and scratchy and we had to sit in the bleachers for the entire football games. so i only participated for that one season.

 

i had serious anxiety as a teen. i was in art classes and wanted to audition for school plays but i had a fear of just speaking in class.  i turned 10 shades of red and would melt into a puddle.   so funny how your entire world is just HS students and teachers and the class superlatives ran everything. and how insignificant those years were in the big picture.


Right on, @CatsyCline.  Well said.

When I was a freshman at Cornell University, I was encouraged to enter the local beauty contest. I just couldn't get into it. I did show up but did not don the sexy outfit or make-up associated with such competitions. Needless to say, I did not win. Ironically, it came as a relief.

Re: SO TELL US, WERE YOU A HOMECOMING QUEEN, CHEERLEADER, MAJORETTE???

I went to high school in Canada and we did not have cheerleaders or prom queens.I was a very shy and nervous geeky girl who kept my head turned when I passed by people for fear that they might feel they had to acknowledge me and would prefer not to do so.I didn't find out until a few yearsafter graduation(which I didn't attend) that I was one of the most talked about girls.The guy voted me the most beautiful but stuck up girl in school.I worked with a few of them after high school and they told me that I had become a much nicer person.so my answer to the questions would be never even if there was the opportunity.

This is a great thread!

I was active in after school sports!  I played basketball, softball, and soccer!  After a couple of years of participation we would earn a letter and were called "Letter Girls"  We wore white long sweaters with our letter proudly displayed on it" 

I always dreamed about being a cheerleader but really I was not the type and also too shy to be popular as those girls were!  Also I was not the homecoming queen type either!!  I did attend dances and proms! Woman Wink


Thanks @Newgate.  It is interesting to hear what others did in high school.  Our high school also had letters for the athletes, girls and boys, both.  I attended dances and proms, too.  They were always fun, but then again, I wasn't in the spotlight.
