Coach LaParis James-Basketball Cheer

Hello! 

I'm Coach James, the Head Basketball Cheer Coach for Journey Middle School. This will be my third year taking on a coaching role for Basketball Cheer. I started my coaching career as an assistant coach. During this time, I had the opportunity to learn and take in so much information. The following year, I took on the role of head coach for Basketball Cheer. I loved every minute of it! I've enjoyed getting to meet so many young ladies and helping them by strengthening or teaching them new skills. I look forward to helping young girls grow confidence in themselves, as well as make new friends by creating a welcoming culture and the best basketball game atmosphere for our school. I'm so excited to be a part of the Journey team and can not wait to see what basketball season holds! Go Jags!
