Cheerleading is a contact sport.
So says the Wisconsin Supreme Court. So, what does this mean for teenage girls across Wisconsin? Well, you can’t sue another cheerleader if you are injured in the act of leading cheers.
This decision was the first of its kind. It came not too long after a study that says that cheerleading is the most dangerous sport.
So, what does this mean for those injured in the same manner as Brittany Noffke? Parents make sure you have good health insurance, discuss the risks with your child and have good long talk with the coach about safety during practice.
