Creekside High School is excited to announce that Melissa Canaan will join the coaching staff to lead the Knights Cheerleading Program.

Coach Mel began cheering at the All-Star and school level when she was just five years old and has been coaching cheer teams for ten years. At 19, she took her first high school team to UCA Nationals to claim the school’s first finals finish, placing in the top five. Outside of school teams, Coach Mel coached teams to win Jamfest Super Nationals, Cheersport, and many other state titles. She has taken teams to Summit, qualifying for finals the past four years. Coach Mel is excited to be a part of the Creekside community. Her goal is for the athletes to progress and feel successful in creating a long-lasting love of cheerleading.

All Creekside students interested in trying out for the 2022-2023 Cheerleading team should attend an interest meeting after school Friday, April 8th, in the small cafeteria.

All incoming 9th-grade athletes (zoned for Creekside) interested in trying out for the team should attend an interest meeting on April 8th at 4:45 in the small cafeteria.
