Metro Warrior Volleyball Coaches 2018
Jessica Miszuk – Head Coach – Varsity – Jessica Miszuk is one of our own Warrior alumni. She graduated from Calvary Bible College with a bachelor’s degree in Biblical Counseling where she also played volleyball. Although she primarily played Middle Blocker, she finished her senior year at Calvary as an Outside Hitter and the captain of her team. After she graduated from college she returned home to coach her old high school team, the Omaha Metro Warriors. She has coached a total of 5 years for the Metro Warriors and 2 years at Calvary. Her passion as a coach is to help athletes see the value of bringing God into every practice and game. One of her favorite scenarios is when a team is not only at the top of their competitive ability but is able to give all credit (glory) to the Lord Jesus Christ. Jessica’s goal is to encourage her players to work their hardest for the glory of God, while still having fun and learning more about living life in community (teamwork). Reminding each of them that “whatever you do, do it HEARTILY, as to the Lord and not to men” (Colossians 3:23). She is excited to coach each girl the Lord brings her way. Not only in the game of volleyball but also through the practical lessons of life that arise during their daily walk with their Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
