Leslie Cikra

Head Coach
Current Team
11 Leslie

Leslie enters the 2018 – 2019 season at Momentum for her first year. In her 6+ years of coaching and 14 years of playing, Leslie brings her experience playing professionally at the highest level, excitement for her players to improve and love for the game. She is a former professional volleyball player, Lady Volunteer, AVCA All American, and Southeastern Conference Champion.  She is also IMPACT certified and teaches Pilates and Yoga.

Leslie played in France, Greece and South Korea.  She was a 6x time MVP during her last season in Korea, and had a small stint with the USA National Team.

Leslie is a firm believer in helping to shape not only good volleyball players but good humans by helping develop skills that her players can take out into their life with them.  She creates an environment that is competitive, yet supportive, where players are encouraged to learn by making mistakes. Her top priorities are providing a positive space where her players work and compete really hard, but also have a lot of fun.

When not coaching, you can find Leslie…coaching! She is a pilates and yoga instructor and is so passionate about working with people to build confidence and gratitude for their body through movement.  In her spare time, she loves moving her body, snowboarding, traveling, and doing anything and everything outside with her pup, Mochi.
