Cheerleading Basket Toss

Basket Tosses must be performed correctly in order to avoid injury. This stunt requires true teamwork and concentration. Katrina and Sloane stop by Cheerforce and get first hand instruction on how the Cheerleading Basket Toss is done properly.

First the main base and side base place their hands together in a basket form. The "Top" or "Flyer" then climbs into the basket. The trick is for the flyer to support their weight mainly with their arms and not by standing on the basket. The flyer's posture should be straight with straight arms. The bases then use arms and legs together and launch the flyer with arms extending all the way up.

The catch is done by forming a cradle. The spotter must remember to throw straight and not forward. The flyer rides the basket with arms near her ears until she starts going down and then falls into cradle position. There are several levels of this advanced stunt, this is level 1. Don't try this unless you have proper training as cheerleading injuries can easily occur especially on the untrained.

Being a base is actually more difficult in many ways than being a flyer! The spotter calls the stunt and no other talking happens at that point so that all members of the squad are on the same page.
