Head Coach Julie Maxwell Bio

“The game of basketball has always been a part of my life. Growing up I played basketball all year round, including school basketball, league basketball, and travel basketball. Once I graduated high school and went to college, I decided I wanted to help girls learn the game of basketball since there were not many supporters of girls basketball when I grew up. I was recently named head coach of the Orchard Park JV team and have coached the girls Maryvale modified basketball team for 7 years. This past summer, I helped coach the girls basketball camp through Healthy Buffalo. I continue to play myself as well in the Healthy Buffalo Women’s League. I am very passionate toward supporting and teaching young girls this game and the life lessons that come along with it.”
