We are excited to announce Harry Bitzberger as the new Division lead for our East Coast Power Volleyball West division. Concurrently with his upcoming leadership at our ECP West Division, Harry serves as the Head Coach at West Chester Rustin High School and Assistant Coach of the Women’s Volleyball team at Eastern University.
Coach Harry comes with an array of experience that started with his introduction to volleyball while stationed at Vandenberg AFB California as a young officer in the USAF. From there he was a volunteer coach across the country while his passion for the game grew. Following his travels, he moved back to Pennsylvania and rooted into the greater Philadelphia area where he began building and directing reputable programs, starting with youth volleyball in the Media & West Chester area. “It’s all about the kids! It’s my responsibility to hold the vision for them, to challenge them to face and overcome adversity; to learn the many lifelong benefits they’ll garner from playing volleyball” said Coach Bitzberger.
Harry proves his coaching philosophy through the numerous coaching positions that he has held concurrently over the years. "We welcome Harry and his long time experience and dedication to growing youth sports and club volleyball in our area,” said Brian McCann, Executive Director of East Coast Power Volleyball. Coach Harry became the head coach of West Chester Rustin High School in 2016 after just one season as the varsity assistant and JV head coach at Bishop Shanahan. He has attended numerous high level coaching workshops while earning both CAP I and CAP II certifications. He continues to put his coaching education to practice and in just four seasons has created a winning program for the WC Rustin Golden Knights, leading them deep into the District 1 playoffs and a record of 75-29. In addition to the winning record and district competition appearance, Coach Harry has led his high school program to an American Conference Championship (’17,’18) and 2018 PA State Tournament appearance.
