Month 9. Anti-Bullying Campaign.

Make a difference & take a stand to spread the message that bullying is a serious problem & has no place in our Cheer & Dance World!

Stay tuned all month long as we share video and stories of athletes whose lives have been impacted by the affects of bullying. To purchase a Bully FREE ZONE window decal for your gym or business, visit our web store here.

The cheerleading and dance community is one of the most accepting and unified groups in the sports world. And yet, in our world, bullying is still a problem. It takes many forms and can happen through text messages or on the web, in person, anywhere. When it comes to being bullied, your age, gender or education level does not matter. Bullying hurts people, and it is not a joke.
