Assitant Coach
Sam Johnson

Sam Johnson is in her first year coaching with the CT Spirit. Sam is a Simsbury native and graduated from Simsbury High School where she played soccer, basketball and ran track. She attended Hofstra University in Long Island, NY where she had a successful basketball career, making the WNIT tournament twice and joining the 1,000 point club.

Sam honed her basketball skills going through the Connecticut AAU circuit from the time she was 10 years old until she graduated high school. She enjoys giving back to girls’ basketball in Connecticut by doing various camps and clinics as well as being the assistant coach at Simsbury High School. She loves working with young players to help them develop their skills and to encourage them to step outside their comfort zone. Basketball helped to mold her into the person she is today and she strives to do the same for the young players she coaches.
