Jessy Roy

Assistant Coach, Lynn University
Boca Raton, FL
NCAA Division II 

 

In her third season at Lynn University, Jessy Roy helped lead the Fighting Knights to a 24-14 record, a third-place tie in the very competitive Sunshine State Conference, and a second-consecutive appearance in the NCAA Division II Tournament.

A graduate of Metropolitan State College of Denver in 2004 with a B.A. in Human Performance and Sports, Roy has been a physical education teacher in the U.S. and her native Canada. She came to Lynn after serving as head coach at Cégep Beauce-Appalaches in St. Georges, Québec, where she guided the team to third place at the Provincial Tournament.

"I started coaching club volleyball and working summer volleyball camps when I began my college career as a volleyball player," she said. "Although I was a full-time student-athlete in college, I managed to find time to coach club because I enjoyed coaching and I felt like I had some kind of knowledge about volleyball from my college coaches that young athletes could benefit from."

After choosing coaching over teaching because "this is what I enjoyed the most," she looked for a graduate assistant position somewhere in the United States.

"The first position I applied for was at Lynn University," she said. "After an interview, head coach Lynze Roos offered me the GA position, which I took without hesitation. I now have a master's degree in business administration from Lynn and I am a full-time assistant coach, everything I was hoping for."
