Coach Michelle Strack
Year 8 as Head Coach
I grew up in Coon Rapids, MN and enjoyed living in a state that offered year round activities. Once graduated from high school, I travelled to Northwest Missouri State University on a volleyball scholarship. At NWMSU I completed my Bachelor in Physical Education and Minored in Health. I continued at NWMSU as a graduate assistant in the Recreation Department to receive my Masters in Physical Education, emphasizing in Athletic Administration. I am married and have 3 wonderful children.
I started teaching in the NKCSD in 2005, starting at Maple Park Middle School, working my way to Winnetonka, and now have arrived at North Kansas City High School. I have been coaching volleyball for 10+ years in the NKCHS district.
The NKC volleyball program has grown significantly throughout the years that I have been here. We are proud of the culture that has been created to enhance academics, character, and competing. We strive to help athletes reach full potential through their years in our program.
