How to Prepare for a Cheer Competition
The Day Before
Eat dinner.Don't starve yourself right before a competition, or you run the risk of feeling faint and passing out the next day. Eat a dinner that will give you energy for the next day (think carbohydrates like pasta).
Take a shower.You want to ensure that you're clean. Taking a shower the night before will ensure that you'll look fresh, even if you accidentally wake up late.
Collect everything that you will be taking into a bag.This includes cell phone, camera, extra socks, hairspray, bobby pins, toothbrush or whatever else you'll be taking!
Double check that you have all parts of your uniform.If it doesn't fit, make sure that you let the coach know.
Put on your uniform and make-up in a place where you can find it.
Stretch.Make sure that you know your routines. Don't over-exert yourself, though, or you won't perform your best at the competition.
Know where you're going.Get directions to your competition and make sure that you have a ride there.
Go to bed early.Get a good night's sleep to ensure that you're energetic on the day of the competition.
The Day Of
Wake up early so that you don't have to rush around.
Put on your makeup, do your hair, and everything else you need to get ready.Make sure your makeup is the proper colors (usually team colors, unless your coach specifies otherwise). If you have a zit use a small amount of concealer to cover it.
Eat a good breakfast.Make sure to get protein. Drink a glass of juice or water with your food so that you are hydrated.
Grab your bag and everything else you'll need for the competition.
Breathe.If you're feeling really nervous you might just want to sit down and breathe for a couple minutes.
Try to do some simple stretching before you leave so that you don't feel rushed to stretch once you are at the competition.
