USA W: Stacy Sykora wants to be the best coach she can be

With a desire to share her knowledge of volleyball to the next generation of Olympic Games hopefuls, three-time U.S. Olympian Stacy Sykora continues her transition from elite international libero into a goal to be the best coach she can be.

Sykora and Kiraly


She is attending the USA Volleyball High Performance Coaches’ Clinic at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs. The annual clinic has drawn 230 of the best coaches in the nation and around the world. The presenters include U.S. women’s national team head coach Karch Kiraly and his staff, Argentina men’s coach Julio Velasco and France men’s coach Laurent Tillie.

This clinic is teaching me so much,” Sykora said. “I have been a sponge here, writing down everything. My goal as a player was to be the best. That was always my goal. Now I have a different goal, I want to be the best coach.”

“I would say Karch Kiraly is my No. 1 mentor,” Sykora said. “He went from being one of the best players in the world winning gold to one of the best coaches in the world winning gold, and that is kind of where I want to go. Was I ever a gold medalist, no. But I think you can learn from a player turned coach. That is what I am. So I would say No. 1 on my mentor list is Karch Kiraly.”
