Jenna Rubin is joining Walker’s in her first season as the head varsity volleyball coach. Coach Rubin played at Smith College for the 2014 and 2015 seasons before transferring to UConn and played on the women’s club team. Rubin specialized as a middle while at Smith, gaining recognition within the New England Women’s and Men’s Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) as one of the top five blockers in both of her two years in the conference. While at UConn, she competed in the 2017 National Collegiate Volleyball Federation (NCVF) Club National Championships in Kansas City, MO. Prior to college, Rubin played on high performance teams with Husky Volleyball Club (CT) for two years.
Coach Rubin said, “I am so excited for the opportunity to coach volleyball at Walker’s. When I was starting to play volleyball in high school, my coaches were my greatest supporters and challenged me to push myself on and off the court. Without those experiences, I wouldn’t have tried out for a local club team or continued to play in college. I hope to help foster that kind of commitment and passion in some of the athletes here. I can’t wait for the season to start and to see how this team comes together, especially after a year away from competition.”
Coach Rubin graduated from UConn in 2019, where she studied English and Creative Writing. She continues to write as a hobby and read in her free time. She loves traveling and recently moved back to Connecticut from California with her puppy, Dunkin.
