Former Camel standout Kayla Schanback was named assistant coach at Campbell University in September 2020. A two-time all-conference performer during her playing days, Schanback returned to Buies Creek after coaching stops at Virginia Tech and Eastern Kentucky.
I am ecstatic that Kayla has decided to come back to the Creek and continue to help develop our team and round out our strong staff, said Goral, who is in his ninth season in charge of the program. She was a huge component in the foundation of this program as an athlete and has several years experience as an assistant coach to now provide quality leadership to our young players.
Her first calendar year with the Camels saw two full seasons completed, with the 2020 season postponed to spring 2021, and then the traditional 2021 fall season. Schanback was part of the staff that helped the Camels finish second place during each regular season.
Schanback helped lead the 2021 team to its first-ever NCAA Tournament appearance after a record-setting 21-10 season and 14-2 conference slate, marking a program record for conference wins in a season. The Camels then faced No. 10 Nebraska in the first round in front of a crowd of 7,884, the largest ever for a Campbell match.
Working primarily with serve receive and defense, she helped turn the unit into one of the best in the nation, finishing the season with the 12th best opponent hitting percentage at .152. She has helped libero Claranne Fechter to a pair of all-Big South nods, making the second-team in 2020 and honorable mention in 2021.
Schanback returned to her alma mater after spending the 2019 season on the staff at Eastern Kentucky. In her position at Campbell, she assists with recruiting, training, scouting, match preparation, team travel, marketing, social media and overseeing summer camps.
What stands out about Kayla is her passion for Campbell volleyball as well as coaching the sport at an elite level, said Goral. This university and program are forever part of Kayla and that appreciation shows in how she approaches every day. She has been relentless in her professional development so that she has the tools to be successful on the court, out recruiting, as well as in the office. She also excels at building relationships and knows firsthand how I train and develop athletes; how we operate in a first class manner and the atmosphere and culture we are striving for. But most of all, I look forward to working with someone who truly loves her profession and another truly dedicated person who loves this place and this program.
While at Eastern Kentucky, Schanbacks responsibilities included serving as the program's camp director, managing travel and game-day operations, establishing the defense/defensive philosophy, scouting, assisting with all recruiting efforts, and supervising social media platforms.
During her time as volunteer assistant coach at Virginia Tech, Schanback managed on court and video work with players, scouted opposing teams, supported recruiting, assisted with game day operations, and coordinated equipment.
One of the most decorated defensive players in school history, Schanback ranks third in school history in career (1457) and single-season (566) digs, and eighth in career sets played (446). Her 35-dig performance against Gardner-Webb during the 2016 season is tied for the eighth-most digs in a match in the program record books.
A native of Casselberry, Fla., Schanback helped the Camels reach the 2015 Big South tournament final. In addition, Schanback played a key role in the 2017 squad that won 20 matches and earned the programs first-ever post-season berth (NIVC). She was named to the All-Big South Conference second team twice.
I am ecstatic about the opportunity to coach at Campbell. I want to thank Coach Goral for giving me the chance to return home, said Schanback. I believe strongly as a Campbell alumna that my passion for the sport, program, and University will be transparent in my everyday work as a member of our staff. Campbell Volleyball has proven to be a competitor in the Big South and with the talent, commitment, and positive team culture, I have no doubt we will make history again soon. I am excited to, not only work with everyone, but to make an impact that will help our student-athletes achieve their goals on and off the court.
Following graduation, Schanback was a student assistant at Campbell, where she helped coach the freshman defensive players, and organized the recruiting matrix.
A three-time member of the Big South Conference Presidential Honor Roll, Schanback earned her bachelor's of business administration degree with a minor in sport management in 2018.

See what people are saying about EXACT!
This is a great opportunity to showcase your talents in front of top tier college coaches at the next level, it not only allows you to showcase your strengths but also helps you improve upon your weaknesses due to the direct feedback from college coaches. I feel like a better volleyball player after this one day camp!
Your showcase opened my daughter's eyes that she needs to start preparing now to fulfill her dream of being on a collegiate volleyball team. Her attitude is now focused on what she needs to do to achieve her goal. The college coaches were outstanding, and were very informative about what they expect, and do with their teams. It was our first EXACT showcase, but definitely not our last one we will attend in the upcoming future. Our overall experience exceeded our expectations. Thank you for everything, and connecting us to valuable college coaches.
I was actually so nervous going into the camp, but once I got the to camp all of my nervousness went away. The coaches were all very nice and the camp was a comfortable place with everyone being very supportive. Not only was it enjoyable, I was able to talk to the coaches one-on-one, and get honest and thoughtful feedback to improve my athletic abilities and talents.
Before attending the EXACT Camp, I was very uneducated about college sports and didn't have a set school I was interested in, but this camp helped me have a better understanding of what to look for in the future.
I thought the EXACT Camp really gave me the extra push I needed to become a recruited college athlete. Being able to talk face to face with college coaches made me feel in control of the process. I loved the competition and I think I improved as a player over the course of the days. It was definitely the best camp I attended all summer.
The EXACT camp allowed me to gain valuable college exposure, talk to college coaches, and receive advice about becoming a student athlete. From this camp, I feel more confident in myself because of the positive feedback I received from the coaches, and encouragement from the girls I was with. The 1-on-1 evaluation from a college coach was extremely beneficial and will help me improve to become a more dynamic player!
I went into this camp not knowing what to expect. I came out, and I loved it. I loved the environment, direct exposure to the coaching staff, and learning new techniques from a variety of different coaches. Everyone here was very positive, and made sure to include everyone.I would definitely recommend the EXACT camp and hope attend one in the near future!
The EXACT Camp is my second exposure camp and it was way bigger and better than my first! It was amazing to be around girls with the same aspirations as me, hopefully I’ll compete against them in the future at the collegiate level. My experience with EXACT has been invaluable and extremely informative. It's definitely the easiest and best way to be exposed to college coaches. Thanks so much EXACT!!
Everyone was amazing and helpful, I enjoyed the exposure to college coaches! I learned so much more during this one day camp than I did during a 3 day camp I attended last year. I would definitely recommend EXACT, it helped me to become a better player overall!
As a parent of a student athlete, this program surpassed all expectations. The staff went beyond our goal of giving not just physical but mental training. They encouraged and critiqued those skills need to make our athlete even better than when she arrived. We all loved attending, and our daughter looks forward to next year or attending another one soon. Thank you for a great experience!
I really enjoyed how I was able to meet one on one with every coach, and I was able to show my skills in front of them. I also loved how informational the coaches were about recruiting process, and how I was able to see and experience the different coaching styles. I also enjoyed how there was a coach from every division including NAIA.
