Lenore Chenard was born in Edmonton, Alberta Canada and moved to Orlando in 2009. While living in Orlando Lenore played competitive volleyball for 7 years (7 years of school ball and 6 years of club). Lenore was on a court for 300/365 days a year. Through volleyball she traveled to over a half a dozen states, won a handful of medals, played on live tv, came 2nd place in the US nationals and 1st in the 2015 Canadian Nationals. Lenore was coached by her father- Lucian Chenard (Assistant to the head coach of UCF’s Volleyball team) and Semei Tello (Former volunteer assistant coach at UCF & statistics manager for team Florida). Her playing career ended her senior year of high school after receiving her 3rd concussion, but her love of the game was too strong to give it up entirely, so she began coaching full time. Volleyball is a large factor in who Lenore is today (and continues to be). In grade 8 she realized the impact sports and coaches can have on a child (positive and negative). She wanted to impact athletes in the same way coaches did for her. Lenore volunteer coached for the YMCA from 2011-2015 as well as club volleyball as an assistant coach 2013-2016. In August of 2016 she moved back to Edmonton to attend the University of Alberta to get her Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology. While in Canada Lenore head coached a U14 team with FOG Volleyball Club. She brought the girls from dead last, to second in the province and then won gold at Canadian Nationals in May of 2017. Lenore then Moved back to Florida and was the assistant coach for both the boy’s and girl’s middle school programs at Timber Springs Middle School. Also, in the Fall of 2017 Lenore began as the Assistant Coach for The Master’s Academy Varsity volleyball program. Along with Marisela Brown, they were able to bring the girls to regional Semifinals for the first time in 17 years. Lenore is currently coaching her second Season with Master’s Academy. Lenore is excited to be back with the MBS family and it is her goal that all the athletes she works with learn more than just volleyball skills. She is very competitive and will teach the skills of volleyball, but Lenore also recognizes that volleyball can be used for a bigger purpose. In addition to teaching volleyball skills, Lenore will teach athletes life lessons and share experiences through volleyball that will last a lifetime and impact their future. She couldn’t tell you how many games or medals she's won and lost, but the countless life developing moments and lessons learned are priceless, and to her that is what volleyball is about. The sport of volleyball is a tool to teach responsibility, grow friendships and instill confidence in young athletes. Teaching them to become leaders in their community.
