Assistant Coach Victoria Sandoval

Assistant Volleyball Coach at Hill College

Victoria Sandoval enters her first season as the assistant coach for Hill College after serving as a student manager for Baylor University Women’s Volleyball for three years.

The roles of being a student manager at Baylor are very extensive from being in the office on a regular basis to taking statistics during every match and practice. Being part of the Baylor Volleyball staff for three years has really allowed Victoria to grow as both a coach and a former player.

Prior to joining both Hill College, Sandoval played on the Baylor Women’s Club team for two seasons. She lined up as the starting setter both years and as a captain her final year of playing. Prior to attending Baylor University for academics, Sandoval played for Madfrog Volleyball out of Plano, Texas, for six years and then followed that by coaching Madfrog for 2 years afterwards. There she was also a setter, but later on she was the Assistant Coach for the 11’s Elite team. During her time coaching 11’s for two years, the team had the best finish for a third 11’s team for consecutive years.

She has extensive camp coaching experiences, working all Madfrog summer camps from 2013-2015, coaching summer series from 2013-2015. She also worked the high demand Madfrog College Coach summer camps where the club brought in coaches from all conferences to train the players in the North Texas Region.

On a separate occasion, Sandoval also attended a private coaching clinic that Terry Liskevych held for the Madfrog coaches in the summer of 2014. Terry Liskevych spent 12 years as the head coach of the United States National Team, but most recently was the co-founder of The Art of Coaching Volleyball. Learning from Liskevych really helped Victoria Sandoval solidify her philosophy and foundations as a coach.
