366 C-H-E-E-R Spells Stunt?

Thursday, April 25, 2013: 11:45 AM-12:45 PM
Convention Center: 210AB
Speaker: Christi S. DeWaele, Winthrop University, Rock Hill, SC
The purpose of this session is to familiarize the participant with one of the NCAA's emerging sports: STUNT. Twenty-one universities in 2011 and twenty-three universities in 2012 committed to instituting Stunt as a spring sport, and Stunt has since completed their second competitive season. The sport of Stunt is the result of intercollegiate competitive cheer squads not being recognized as a sport in a landmark case involving Quinnipiac University's Athletic Department.
