Are you looking for new ways to get your crowd on their feet? How about a new set of poms? Poms are a great way to create a visual for your fans to follow. Whether you are flashing your colors, or leading a fight song, poms grab attention and can be seen from afar.
Lawrence Herkimer, the grandaddy of cheerleading, created this mainstay back in the 1950’s. With the introduction of color TV, he wanted to figure out a way for fans tuning in at home to better follow the cheerleader’s routines. Before that, the classic baton had historically been the prop of choice. The original idea was to add colored streamers to the ends of the baton stick. Within a few short years, the pom concept eventually evolved into the rounded evenly cut shape we know and love today.
