Numerous individuals and agencies agree that an activity becomes a sport when it involves competition. Although cheerleaders do not compete against each other as they cheer for their assigned team, they do have the option to compete against other cheer squads at local, state, and national levels.

Cheer competitions are often televised on ESPN and similar channels.
