Pineapple Cheerleaders Cheerology


(Cheer Terminology)

Sometimes it's hard to understand what a cheerleader is talking about, so if you find yourself thinking 'WTF' here's a guide to the Pineapple Cheerleader terminology, also known as Cheerology!


Let' s start with the basics.... Pineapple Cheerleader in cheer mode

IDC – I don’t care

CUNP - see you next practise

CFF’s – Cheerleading friends forever


Cheer Mode – state of being adopted by cheerleaders usually initiated by someone shouting ‘Ready’. You can spot when someone is in cheer mode by their exaggerated peppiness and reduced common sense. They are also unable to communicate in any way other than through the medium of cheer.

Cheer Factor – Indefinable quality which is found in all PC’s and stands them apart from other cheerleaders.

Cheer off – spontaneous, competitive demonstration of cheerleading skills often between one squad and another or even internally between squad members. The PC's often use cheer off's in training so we always Bring It!

Bring It - PC's always Bring it! If you don’t know what this means then even the Cheerology page can’t help you.
