Coach Maddie Maxwell. 
Welcome back to Coach Maxwell! We are excited to have Coach Maxwell back. Her enthusiasm carried the Freshmen team through an awesome year!  She comes to Rocklin High School from Leland High School in the Bay Area and All-Star Cheerleading. She cheered and competed with Leland High School and began coaching all-star cheerleading when she was 13. She was also a competitive gymnast for 8 years and a tumbling coach.  After the Cheer season- Coach Maxwell is also coaching our outstanding STUNT team.

“Cheerleading and gymnastics have always been in my life and I was lucky enough to be able to pass along my passions through coaching. I cheered at Leland High School for 4 years and began coaching all-star cheer at Almaden Spirit Athletics with my old cheer coach when I was 13 years old. I was able to coach kids as young as 5 years old up to 18, and it was so inspiring to watch them grow. I am excited to be a part of the Rocklin program and I am looking forward to the time to come!”    Coach Maxwell

I cheered all four years varsity at Los Altos high school in the Bay Area. Also competed with Gold Star AllStars on their hip-hop dance team earning nationally ranked titles. Then moved on to join the Sierra college cheer team for three wonderful years. Competed two years with Sierra's show cheer team as well as two years with STUNT. Coached the Varsity and STUNT team at Lincoln high school this past 2014/15 season. Super excited to join the Rocklin family can't wait to see where this year takes us!! Go Rocklin!"
