Parents rock their daughters’ cheerleading competition

It brings your father to work day for these cheerleaders.

These Utah dads were invited to compete in Cedar High’s first “Cheer Dad Jump Off Competition” after the girls’ coaches noticed that the dads were their biggest cheerleaders.

Coach Danielle Lasson and her assistant coach created the jump as a way to get dads in and out of the sidelines.

“It’s great to hear the girls prepare their parents for the competition, and some even teach them all the tricks and moves to get a good jump,” Lasson told USA Today.

The hilarious video of the end of the jump has now gone viral, garnering over a million views on TikTok.

Instead of doing little jumps or taps, the coaches actually got the dads to do the routine – the same thing their daughters do to get the crowd going.

Some fathers came dressed to impress – pompoms and all – while others brought their expertise.

“A lot of [people] are happy that most of us can jump well,” the father said in an episode of Good Morning America.

Although Vaughn Cottam, the father of the new cheerleader, won the crown, the parents were happy to participate.

“I know we’re going to be famous on TikTok at some point in our lives,” said one of the parents.

The TikTok has been shared more than 11,000 times and has more than 253,000 likes, while users vote for their favorite leader in the comments.

“The white shirt didn’t come to compete, it came to win,” said one man.

“White shirt & black pants he’s been training his whole life at this point,” another wrote.
