  • Great volleyball:  every player at the HP Individual Camp is a great player, so the level of skill in drills and scrimmages will be higher than almost any other camp you have ever been to.
  • And if you're attending an overnight camp:  Great sleep!  You will play a LOT of volleyball every day, so you will be tired!
  • Great friends:  the connections and friendships developed between players and coaches will last for years to come!
  • Great ratio:  the coach to player ratio at camp is around 1:4.

Tom Hogan

2008 Olympic Coach!

Career Highlights:

Tom Hogan is now in his third season as an assistant at the University of Colorado.

Prior to joining the Buffs, Hogan was a part of the USA Women's Volleyball National Team coaching staff by helping the U.S. to a silver medal at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing. He was with the program for four seasons.

The U.S. reached the Olympic Games gold-medal match in 2008 for the first time since 1984 and ended up winning the silver medal. The U.S. handed winner Brazil its only set loss of the entire Olympics. During the 2008 Olympics Games, Team USA picked up victories over second-ranked Italy, third-ranked Cuba, fifth-ranked Japan and host seventh-ranked China.

Hogan has coached a slew of talented athletes as a member of the USA Volleyball staff including Stacy Sykora and Robyn Ah Mow-Santos. Both are three-time Olympians and won the silver medal in 2008 under Hogan's leadership. They were two-time AVCA All-Americans during their collegiate careers.

As an assistant, Hogan proved valuable to the program. In 2005, he helped Team USA to a gold medal at the 2005 NORCECA Championships and a silver medal at the World Grand Champions Cup. After a disappointing 2006 season, Team USA won 26 of 37 matches in 2007 and earned 2008 Olympic Games qualification at the FIVB World Cup. Hogan was named the USOC Coach of the Month in September of 2007. He served as the head coach for Team USA at the 2008 Pan American Cup in Mexico, which resulted in the U.S. receiving a berth into the 2009 FIVB World Grand Prix and fifth-place finish with a young team.

Prior to his role with the women's national team, Hogan served as an assistant coach with the USA Junior National Team in 2004, and was a member of the 2005 JNT team that traveled to Ankara, Turkey, for the 2005 World Championships. The squad won the gold medal at the NORCECA Championships. He also worked with the USA Youth National A2 Team. Hogan started his USA Volleyball coaching career as an apprentice coach in 2003 working with the USA National Team, the USA National Training Team and the USA Youth National Training Team.

Hogan served as the head coach of the Miami University (Ohio) women's volleyball club team, which won the national championship in 2002 and was a national championship finalist in 2001. He also served as a student assistant with the Miami University women's varsity team.

Hogan graduated from Miami University (Ohio) in 2002 with a bachelor's of arts degree in management information systems and a minor in marketing. He graduated summa cum laude from Xavier University's (Ohio) sports management graduate program in 2004. Hogan married Lindsay DeWall Hogan on July 4, 2009. DeWall Hogan currently works at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs in the media relations department.
