My name is Melissa Schupp. This is my third year coaching at Aspire, and my 8th year coaching volleyball. I have coached boys and girls ages 3-18 in camps, clinics, and seasons. The thing I love most about coaching is sharing the joy, passion, and knowledge I have for the game with so many girls and seeing their amazing growth. Last club season I, along with my co-coach Michella Harvey, added an accomplishment to our coaching books by earning Aspire's first bid to Junior Nationals with our 17-1 team. Outside of volleyball I am a 2nd grade teacher at Arlington Heights Elementary school. I got married in the summer of 2015 and last year my husband and I bought our first house. Although it is a lot of time, I love coaching and I look forward to another great season!
