If you noticed a new face in the gym, it was most likely Sara Scheirman, CAL Sports Academy’s new Volleyball Coach & Instructor.
“I am excited most about getting to come into the gym and do what I love; and that’s working with young athletes,” Coach Sara said. “Being able to be a mentor and help them develop into the best player they can be, while really understanding what it means to be a competitive player and have passion for the game.”
Coach Sara comes to CAL as both a highly touted and experienced player and coach. She is a 2013 graduate of Duquesne University where she was a full scholarship volleyball student-athlete.
During her years at Duquesne, she was named to the Atlantic 10 Conference All-Rookie Team, Second-Team All-Conference, and Honorable Mention. She was also only the seventh player in program history to record 1,000 career kills and digs.
While playing for the Division 1 team, Sara found her true passion: coaching.
During her senior year, she started coaching a 14-year-old team in Pittsburgh. After graduation, she became a Graduate Assistant Volleyball Coach at Temple University where she perfected her skills managing and coaching a Division 1 program for two years.
Coach Sara joins CAL Sports Academy looking to continue her passion for working with high school and younger athletes. She has played and coached at all levels, and sees the true value in CAL Sports Academy’s familial approach.
“The staff creates a comfortable and fun atmosphere, yet still pushes the athletes to reach their highest potential no matter what sports program or camp they are in,” Coach Sara said. “You can always count on a CAL Coach to communicate with each family and really try and create a strong relationship with each and every one.”
You can find Coach Sara in the gym coaching classes, clinics, camps and is a vital part in Club Volleyball. To learn more and register, check out all of our Volleyball programs.
“People choose CAL over others because CAL really looks to bring out the passion and joy the kids have of sports,” Coach Sara said. “CAL creates all types of camps and clinics so that kids can really learn the mechanics and become well rounded, developed players.”
