Jeff Liker — Boys Chair (elected Sept. 2017)
Jeff Liker is currently serving on the board as the boys representative. In addition to this, he is the founder and director of Spike Milwaukee Volleyball Club (formerly Trojan Volleyball Club). He started Spike Milwaukee in 2005 with the intent of giving players a way to play volleyball to further their skills in an economical and family friendly atmosphere.
Additionally, Liker helped start the Junior Trojan Volleyball club in Wauwatosa in 2014. He currently is the Board President of the club. In four years time, the club has grown to eight teams. Similarly to Spike Milwaukee, Junior Trojan prides itself in giving student athletes as many opportunities as possible to learn the game, to eventually contribute to their high school teams and/or to develop a lifelong passion for volleyball.
Prior to the various club leadership positions in volleyball, Liker was the head coach for the boys’ varsity volleyball team at Wauwatosa West (his alma mater) for five years. During his time at West, Liker helped lead the Trojans to back-to-back state tournament appearances, including one state-runner up. Additionally, Liker coached one year of freshman girls volleyball at Wauwatosa West.
In addition to volleyball, Liker is married and has two daughters (one volleyball player and one soccer player). He is also a science teacher at Whitman Middle School in Wauwatosa since 2000.
