What does it mean to hit 0 in cheer

In a routine, athletes are challenged with “hitting” their stunts, tumbling, jumps, dance, and performance. If a team does so successfully and is not given any deductions from the judging panel, then they have “HIT ZERO” – in other words, they have ZERO deductions.

How do you hit a zero in cheerleading?

?Hit zero? means a team executed a routine without any deductions at all. That means no stunts were dropped, no athlete messed up their tumbling, no safety rules were broken, and that no other deductions were given. Zero points were taken off the team’s score, resulting in a ?hit zero?
