Coach Stephanie Magruder
Stephanie has been with All Star for over 18 years! “When I began coaching at 16, I had no idea the opportunity of the impact that I would have on these young athletes. 18 years later, I realize that coaching is more than just a job; it is a passion for me on so many levels. I have a love for the sport, and there is no denying that watching teams succeed and win is so rewarding. But the fundamentals these athletes are taking away with them is more valuable than I could have ever imagined, especially as I watch so many of these girls grow and mature to become great leaders in the gym. Coaching them as they gain confidence in themselves while mastering skills and seeing their dedication and work ethic evolve validates exactly why I do what I do. It’s more than a win to me – it’s the impact and the experience these athletes have and what they take with them that is so important to me. I am so thankful to be part of All Star where I have the opportunity of playing a role in these athletes’ lives, whether it’s real-world lessons and advice or just a safe, fun place to make memories. I am truly blessed to be part of the Patriots family!”
Stephanie currently coaches the Senior 2 and Senior 3 competitive cheerleading teams. Both of her teams have qualified for D2 Summit bids the last two years! Stephanie has been married to Richard for 14 years, and together they have two little boys, Ryker and Rhett.
