Cameron Schmidt is a coach-in-training. His dad is the 1st Assistant Coach at UCSD with their men's team, and in 5 of the past 6 years has been a volunteer at USD with their women's program. Cameron has been around the sport of volleyball because of his father for years, but it wasn't until 5 years ago that he really took an interest in it. He currently coaches at Oceanside Beach Volleyball Club and Genuine Volleyball Club. He is also a certified referee with SCVA, SDFVOA, and (soon to be) lines with PAVO. He, also, works with both the men's and women's national teams when they practice in Anaheim.

Participating in My First Charlie Saikley 6-Man Beach Tourney (aka the Manhattan 6-Man)

Needless to say I’m still waiting for the pictures and will edit this post as soon as they arrive (hopefully soon). But because the event was almost a week ago and was extraordinarily fun I want to get this up now.
