The National Safety Council was formed to raise awareness of cheerleading safety and education, address misconceptions about injuries, and provide data to ensure proper training of athletes. It is made up of representatives from all segments and disciplines of cheer, including the medical community, spirit industry leaders, biomechanical experts, administrators, coaches, athletes and parents.
