16DS Assistant Coach
This will be Coach Nicole Junell’s (aka Coach J) 2nd season at FORCE and her 17th year coaching volleyball. While being a native to Texas and coaching here for 7 years, she also coached in Colorado for 7 years, and in New York for 2 years. Her experience has been with a wide range of age groups, both coaching club and school volleyball, and has given her the opportunity to lead camps, clinics, and sand, which has allowed her to develop a well-rounded coaching perspective.
This love of coaching and the game of volleyball started for Coach J while playing volleyball at Fredericksburg High School, continued on through at the University of Northern Colorado, league play in Germany, tournament play on grass in Vail, Colorado, in the sand on Long Island, New York, and continues now in adult competitive indoor and sand leagues around Texas.
Last season at FORCE, Coach J assisted 18 Nationals, 16 Darkside, and head coached 14 White. This summer and into the preseason she helped with camps, clinics, and lessons for the players of FORCE. Coach J can’t wait to start another great season of volleyball and is looking forward to bringing her love and experience of the game to drive and motivate two more teams of girls to their highest potential!
