John Senchak

Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania


Coach Senchak is currently the head volleyball coach at Penn State University at Shenangto.  He recently completed his fourth year as head coach of the Loudoun County High School Varsity volleyball program, leading the LCHS VB team to four consecutive state titles.  Previously, he led the Tuscarora High School program for two seasons, earning a state championship in his second season with the program.  He also led the Dominion High School Volleyball program for five years, taking a nondescript program and leading the Titans to the first Conference championship in the school's history.  John has also coached with several clubs in Northern Virginia throughout the past nine years. Realizing that most clubs were not properly focused on the development of athletes as both players and young adults, Coach Senchak and Coach Ingersoll established Tier One Volleyball Club as an option for players committed to growth as leaders and athletes.  Coach Senchak began playing two-man volleyball on the beaches of the Mediterranean while assigned to Athens, Greece, and has played competitively for more than 15 years. He has also coached youth hockey, baseball, and football.  Coach Senchak is a retired U.S. Army First Sergeant, having served with Intelligence and Special Operations Commands; he recently departed service to the Central Intelligence Agency to spend more time with his family and focus on coaching volleyball.
