Chuck Shoemaker enters his fourth season as assistant coach with the North Carolina Wesleyan volleyball program. He joined the Battling Bishops after a two-year stint at Indiana University of Pennsylvania.
While at IUP, Shoemaker worked primarily with blockers, coaching one player to First Team All-PSAC honors in his first season. He also organized day-to-day team operations and served as director of the Crimson Hawks' volleyball camps.
Prior to joining the Hawks, Shoemaker completed a graduate assistantship at the University of Cumberlands in 2012. There, he helped lead the Patriots to a 36-22 record over two seasons, while also serving as head coach of UC's junior varsity squad. Additionally, his Cumberlands tenure allowed the Pittsburgh, Pa. native to assist in all aspects of skills training and recruiting.
Shoemaker's other experience includes one season as assistant men’s volleyball coach for Deer Lakes High School, where he helped lead DLHS to the 2011 PIAA State Championship. He has also offered his services at several camps and clinics, while most recently, he posted a 37-27 record with the Pittsburgh Elite Volleyball Association, including two tournament wins and a fourth place finish in the Keystone Regional Bid tournament.
Shoemaker is 2011 graduate of Clarion University with a degree in secondary education and minor in coaching. He spent four seasons as the Golden Eagles' women’s volleyball manager, and during his 2010 senior season, Clarion advanced to the Elite Eight of the 2010 NCAA Division II Championships. He later earned his M.A. Ed. from Cumberlands in 2012.
In addition to his coaching duties, Shoemaker assists with the Battling Bishops' Student-Athlete Advisory Committee.
