Coach Kristi Nelson-Hitz

Coach Kristi played collegiate volleyball at the University of Nebraska at Omaha. She has been coaching for 40 years and has been a part of the Nebraska Juniors family for 5. One of her favorite volleyball memories is when she competed in the Final Four during her senior year at UNO. What she loves most about coaching at Jr’s is “ the quality and integrity of our coaches. Our program walks the talk in regards to encouraging and supporting our players to be multi-sport athletes.”

Fun Facts/Misc Info
Kristi’s favorite athlete growing up was Flo Hyman and these days it is Tobin Heath. Her favorite activities outside of volleyball include family time, golf and pickleball. If she were stranded on an island and could only bring 3 things they would be ice cream, a volleyball and a weight room. She considers her newfound best talent to be being a grandma!
