Cheers for cheerleading: best chants for football, basketball and volleyball

Motivating your team is essential during a match. There are several chants that can be used based on the moment in the game and how the team is performing. Let’s take a look at chants that you can use during the next match to push your team to victory. Some cheerleaders use a microphone so that their chants can clearly be heard by the audience. This allows them to repeat the chants and the whole arena can shout the same words. This lets the team know that you are thinking about them and wishing them well. There are also some chants that can put some more pressure on the team to do better. Just make sure that you don’t distract the team or become negative.

There are short cheers that can give a burst of energy to the team. Longer chants can inspire them to score more points or defend better. It is often possible to repeat short cheers multiple times in a row. You can also combine them to make longer cheers. You can shout these sheers during the match or after a player performed a spectacular move.

In this post, we shared some chants that you can use to push your team to their next victory. Always remain positive. There is always another match. Players often do their best and want to improve. Give them some time. Celebrate the wins and deal with the losses. You can start out with these chants and eventually create your own. Repetitions often work great as people can sing along. If the text is too complex, people won’t be able to remember it. Just keep it short and fun. Don’t make it personal as you can annoy other players too much and they might get angry and start playing better. This happened after a player teased  Michael Jordan. MJ became so angry that he scored a ton of points in a row. So be careful who you are teasing. 

Teams often enjoy cheers and during moments that you are struggling, the supporters should be there for them. Keep encouraging your team during these hard moments. You will be able to enjoy the wins even more afterwards.
