Have you ever seen a cheerleader practice their stunts on the side of a couch, or maybe even on a can?
Standing on Coke cans – yes you read that correctly. It’s a cheap method to work on stunts, but also extremely dangerous and it wasn’t very effective.
From there, Stunt Stand was born out of necessity to create a safer alternative to practice cheer.
My name is Willis Yehl, and I was a collegiate cheerleader. After testing many prototypes with my partner, we were able to create the Stunt Stand® training device.
We used a mold of my hands in the shape of how I would hold a foot in the air. Then after some trial and error, our device was ready for my teammates.
