Founder of Power West
Having played multiple sports growing up in Manitoba, Schick got his first experience playing post secondary volleyball at the University of Saskatchewan (’91). After a couple years of travelling throughout Europe, Schick continued his education and athletic career at Red Deer College where he helped the Kings win back-to-back CCAA National Championships (‘95/’96) and was named a CCAA All Canadian both years. The following year saw Schick move on to the University of Alberta where the Canada West All-Star helped the Golden Bears to a CIAU National Championship (’97). The following year was spent playing and teaching English in Japan until a return to Edmonton to finish up his Education Degree and play his final year with the Golden Bears. A bronze medal at the ’99 National Championships led to a contract offer to play more professional volleyball, this time in the German Bundesliga with DTV Duren (‘00/’01).
Coach Schick holds an Education Degree (English/Physical Education) from the University of Alberta. He has received NCCP certification in the sports of volleyball, basketball and soccer and actively coaches youth soccer and little league baseball in his community.
Coach Schick currently resides in Vancouver with his wife and 2 young children.
