So as it always happens--something goes wrong right before an activity!
Last night my 4.5yo DD was skating around the house (yes, inside the house- we dont have wood floors) and fell on her wrist..
This morning she says her wrist doesn't hurt unless she moves it.
Well tonight we where going to take her during their practice to sign DD up for cheerleading (Coach said last weekend to bring her to practice to sign her up)
Im sure when we go they will throw dd in to get her started.
What would you do?

Being a Sports Med professional working in HS/ Youth Athletics I personally would NOT put her in Cheerleading this young for way more reasons that I care to write at the moment, maybe gymnastics but not cheer leading!
Other then that it sounds like a sprian, your Doc can tell you for sure. If she must cheer then I'd put an ace wrap on the wrist for the day, take her to the sign ups, and just tell the coach no tumbling or lifts for her until the wrist heals!!
