Mike Bossom Returns as Head Coach for the Columbia Volleyball Club


July 1, 2014 – Columbia, MD – The Columbia Volleyball Club is pleased to announce that Mike Bossom has joined the 30 year-old volleyball organization as Head Coach for the 2014-15 season. Bossom is returning to CVC after leaving the head coaching position at Goucher College where he led the Division III women’s volleyball program from 2006 through 2014. During his tenure, the Gophers accomplished winning records in three of Bossom’s first five seasons, which helped him become the second-winningest coach in the history of Goucher’s volleyball program.

Bossom is no stranger to CVC, as he coached previously with the club, including his tenure as Co-Head Coach with the legendary Greg “Gio” Giovanazzi. “We are really excited to have Mike back; he is really going to help us take this club to the next level as we get ready to celebrate our 30th year.” said CVC President, Dave Kelley. “Mike’s coaching experience at the high school, club and college level is going to be huge for CVC. I know that our players, parents and coaches are thrilled to have him back.” added Kelley.

Bossom, one of the most successful high school volleyball coaches in Maryland, will also be returning as head varsity coach for Centennial High School where he guided the Eagles to 214 wins and eight state championships during his 12 seasons there, including five consecutive state titles starting in 1996.

Bossom was recognized twice during his run at Centennial as All-Met Coach of the Year by both The (Baltimore)Sun and Washington Post, and more than two dozen of the players he coached there went on to play the sport at the collegiate level. Earlier this year, Bossom was named to the Howard County Women’s Athletics Hall of Fame.

In addition to his local successes, Bossom spent more than two years as the head coach of the U.S. Men’s Standing Disabled Team, which under his direction placed fourth at the 2000 Paralympics in Sydney, Australia.
