Gone are the days when all cheerleaders did was lead a few rah-rah sis boom bah's from the sidelines. Today, cheering is something of a sport itself, with squad leaders guiding their teams to ever more creative cheers, chants, and yells—and the moves to go with them—all designed to fire up the fans and inspire the players.

Cheerleaders from around the world submitted their favorites below. Just substitute the name of your school, team, and mascot—and go, go, go!
