The girls go through a lot of struggles trying to get people to recognize cheerleading as a legitimate sport. The football team at school, in particular, loves to make fun of them. There is boy drama as well. Nicole, one of the cheerleaders, as a boyfriend that she is completely committed too but her best friend doesn't like him.

One of the cheerleaders has to spend a lot of time taking care of her baby sister and she finds it hard to juggle the demands of full time cheerleading. Another girl is eagerly getting into all the makeup and short skirts aspects of cheerleading and her mother ends up worried about whether or not she is growing up too fast. Another cheerleader is struggling with keeping her grades up and may get kicked off the team if she is unable to.

They even hold a dance at the school and sell tickets to raise some money. In the past, the Dunbar cheerleaders have won two national championships and the team faces a lot of pressure to win a third. Their routine at Nationals is only two minutes long and one mistake could ruin a entire year of training. The pressure is definitely on.
