The moms are demanding and the kids are talented, so what sets TLC’s new series Cheer Perfection apart from the cable network’s hit Toddlers & Tiaras? Pageants could never classify as a sport.

When the cast visited Celebuzz’s Hollywood studio, these moms and kids insist that this pep club isn’t just a pastime.

“Hopefully this show will show the world that cheerleading is a sport,” says mom and coach Alisha Dunlap.

“These kids have to have so much strength, flexibility, agility, determination. There’s so much involved in the all-star cheerleading world that I wish more people took it serious and really knew how hard these kids worked.

Cheer Perfection premieres Wednesday at 10PM on TLC.
