Women’s Volleyball Head Coach Colin Kubinec is from Trochu, Alberta, and is an avid sports fan. Raised in the home of a phys. ed teacher, he grew up loving all sports, but pursued volleyball at the post-secondary level. He played all five of his years as a left side for the Briercrest Clippers in Caronport, SK, earning ACAC Silver medals in his 3rd and 4th years and an ACAC Gold Medal in his 5th year, which led to a CCAA National Bronze medal. This life-long learner also loved the books, earning Academic All-Canadian honours, and was the Valedictorian of his 2010 Graduating class when he received his BA in Biblical Studies. Kubinec also has a MA in Leadership and Management from Briercrest.
Following his playing career, he quickly got into coaching. Kubinec has his NCCP Level II Coaching Certification, and before Ambrose he coached Club U-18 girls, college men at St Mary’s University College, and at numerous camps. He's been coaching at Ambrose since 2012. Coach Kubinec seeks to create a “caring and daring” environment on his teams, to enjoy God’s gift of sport, and to surround himself with an excellent and like-minded coaching staff, believing in the power of collective wisdom and effort.
