Brown has been selected as Shipley's next Varsity and Junior Varsity coach.  After an extensive local search, Shipley is delighted to have Craig take the helm of the Volleyball program. Craig brings a lifelong passion for Volleyball and experience as a player and coach to Shipley.

A lifelong multi-sport athlete and coach in volleyball, baseball, and basketball, Craig comes to Shipley after being a Professional Beach Volleyball player on the AVP Professional Beach Volleyball Tour, 10 years coaching USAV and AAU Indoor Club Volleyball, and five years as a Certified AVP America Beach Coach.

Craig is currently a Head Coach at East Coast Power Volley Club in King of Prussia. Before moving to the area, he also coached at the Absolute Volleyball Academy and Houston Juniors Volleyball in Houston, Texas.  His daughter attends Lower Merion High School and is a member of the Volleyball program.

Coach Brown stated “I can’t tell you how excited I am to be part of the Shipley Family this coming season. Coming from some of the top Volleyball Clubs in the US, I’m excited to bring a level of volleyball that I believe both Shipley and you should expect.  Coaching young people is my lifelong passion. Passing on that passion with my players hopefully instills a love of the game and utilizes sport to assist in giving young people the life skills they will need for a successful life via sport. I’m sincerely looking forward to this Season with you and the years ahead.”
