Coach Samantha Schmidt – Head Coach

Volleyball has always been a part of my life. My mom was a player and a coach and got me hooked. I am from Arizona and recently moved to California last year after I married my college sweetheart. I was a player for about 13 years, starting when I was young and through high school, club, and college and I have been a coach for the past 7 years. I have coached many teams from 5th grade through 12th grade.
