Mike Schall

Staff Member Since: 
2011

 

Schall, originally from Pennsylvania, joined Triangle in June 2011 as associate director. He remained in that position until March, 2018 when he assumed the first assistant coaching responsibilities for the UNC-Chapel Hill Women's volleyball team.

Schall began his coaching career as a member of Russ Rose’s staff at Penn State serving as assistant coach for the Nittany Lions. While at Penn State, Schall was involved in every area of the program including recruiting, practice planning and implementation, scouting and match preparation, and individual player development. 

At Triangle, Schall coached 18 Black during both the 2012 and 2013 seasons where he led the team to qualify in Open for USAV Junior Nationals. In 2015 he led 16 Black to a T-13 finish in the Open Division at AAU Junior Nationals. In 2016 he coached 16 Black to a T-5 finish in Open at AAU Junior Nationals. For the 2017 season, under Schall's direction, 16 Black achieved top 10 finishes in the Open Division at the Big South Qualifier [T5], Northeast Qualifier [7th], and Northern Lights Qualifier [T5]. The finish at Northern Lights earned the team an Open bid to USAV Junior Nationals, becoming the first 16s team to qualify in Open in Triangle and Carolina Region history.

Schall graduated from Penn State in 1994 with a bachelor's degree in exercise and sports science. As a four-year member and two-time co-captain of the Penn State men’s volleyball team, Schall helped Penn State achieve three EIVA titles and three national semifinal appearances.

Schall and his wife live in Apex with their four children: Belle, Sam, Andrew, and Mia.
