We do lots of conditioning at cheer practice and my coach told me to drink 32oz of water a day, eat an orange a day, & stretch. Any other advice?

In brief: Cheerleading

Sounds like a good start.
Just make sure that besides aerobic/cardiac conditioning you spend time lifting some weights for the demands of a cheerleader.

Eating three healthy meals a day plus 2-3 healthy snacks. Limit your caffeine intake. Also, make sure you having fun!
