High school volleyball coach Randy Supak sees his coaching career as a way to give back to his community and help educate youth about sports. Since the start of his career in 1998, he has felt it was his duty to teach his players all he knows about volleyball.
Q: How are you currently involved with coaching volleyball?
A: I coach a senior girls’ volleyball team in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Canada. I have been with this school for 5 years and we are currently the Northern Ontario Champions at the B level and have been so for the past 3 years.
Q: What does it mean to you to be a coach?
A: It gives me the utmost satisfaction to see our youth learning to build confidence and friendships and see smiles on their faces when they achieve a goal.
Q: How does your team feel about their new UltraFuse™ sublimated uniforms from GTM Sportswear?
A: When we received the uniforms the girls almost fell to the floor with excitement. We are a small school so new anything means a lot, but these uniforms were above and beyond our expectations. They look absolutely fantastic and the girls only have praise for the comfort and feel of the jerseys. One of the best things about the UltraFuse uniforms is that they wash up so great, no wrinkles and air dry time is super-fast.
Q: What do your new uniforms mean to your team?
A: New uniforms gave the girls a presence on the floor, I could see it from the first time they wore them. It was like our game went to a different place. I guess it gave them pride and respect.
Q: What makes you come back to GTM year after year?
A: Great salespeople who respect what you are trying to buy and not pushing items on you. They work to get you the best deal and clothing for your budget. I have dealt with GTM for quite some time and will continue to do so. I absolutely love their stuff. We have purchased a lot of stuff and have received a lot of deals. It’s the place to shop for teams with a budget.
Q: What do you love about coaching? Why do you do it?
A: The smile on the youth’s face, the shy person coming to tryouts and finding a voice inside her to never give up. Seeing someone achieve something they never thought they were capable of doing. Players play, coaches coach, but it should always be about the players.
