SMS Spartans Volleyball

Craig Makufka - Head Coach
  • Welcome to the SMS Spartans Volleyball Program.  I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself to our SMS volleyball community. I am Craig Makufka - SMS Volleyball Head Coach. I moved to the area in May 2020, so I am a relative newcomer. This is my first year teaching at SMS, I am the 7th Grade Life Science teacher. Originally, I grew up in western Pennsylvania and graduated from Clarion University (in PA) with my B.S. in Biology. I have been playing since I was 12 years old, starting with recreational adult volleyball leagues with my family. I then transitioned into high school varsity volleyball, which continued into playing at Clarion University for the inter-collegiate team. I have a couple of seasons as an assistant coach at the girls high school level. Sports (I played baseball, volleyball, football, and bowling) have taught me a lot about myself, teamwork, success and failures, as well as life in general. Those experiences and lessons have helped me develop into who I am today. As a coach, I am determined to provide those learning experience opportunities to the players.
