ECP Executive DIrector Brian McCann said Coach Schamun will lead the club’s commitment to developing stronger setting skills among our players. “We want to make 2019 the Year of the Setter,” said Coach McCann. “We’ve seen time and time again that the strongest teams have consistently focused on strong setting skills and offensive technique with passers, middles, and outsides. We know Coach Schamun has the experience and skill to take our setters and team offense to the next level.”
Prior to joining Villanova, Coach Schamun worked as assistant coach for Tulane University and directed volleyball operations at University of Central Florida. Her club coaching experience is equally impressive with stints at Orlando Volleyball Academy and Club Prime in Irvine, Calif.
