Eric Sato

Known as the best defensive specialist in the world in the late 80’s and early 90’s while playing for the USA NAtional Team, Eric Sato is a two-time Olympic medalist (Gold ’88, Bronze ’92), and also owns gold medals from the 1986 World Championships and the 1987 Pan-Am Games, and bronze medals from the 1991 World Cup and the 1994 World Championships. Sato was also a member of two USA Volleyball Open national Championship teams, and was also named Defensive Player of the Year on the 4-man pro beach tour in 1997.

In his ten seasons at the helm of Francis Parker High School’s Varsity Girls Volleyball team, Sato guided his squads to the 2004 and 2005 CIF Division IV state championships and four CIF-San Diego Section D-IV titles (’02, ’04, ’05, 06), while making six straight CIF Finals appearances. His teams have also captured seven consecutive Coastal League South championships. He was named San Diego County and California State Coach of the Year for the 2004 girls’ season, and repeated as SD County Coach of the Year in 2005. The CIF San Diego Section named Sato 2005-2006 CIFSDS Coach of the Year.

Sato’s first boys’ team as head coach captured CIF D-IV and Western League championships in 2006, and as an assistant coach he also contributed to the previous six consecutive CIF & Western League titles earned by Parker boys’ volleyball teams since 2000. He also led the Parker boys’ JV squad to an undefeated season in his first season with the Lancers.

The head women’s coach at Grossmont College from 1998-2000, Sato led the Griffins to Pacific Coast Conference championships in 1999 and 2000, earning conference Coach of the Year honors both seasons. In 2003, he was honored by USA Volleyball as one of the members of USAV’s 75th Anniversary All-Era (1978-2002) Team. In 2011, Sato was selected as Volleyball Monthly top 35 all time greats. In 2016, Sato was selected USAV’s All-time great male player award. He is also a sought after coach for camps and private lessons.

Jason Sebastian

Described as a coach who is passionate, kind, and driven, Jason has spread the love for the game in each of his players. Having played on some of the top club teams in San Diego throughout his entire high school career, he uses his experiences as a player to help guide his coaching methodologies with his main goal being to be the coach that he himself would want to play for.

Jason specializes in teaching defense as he was the starting varsity libero at Mission Hills High School since his Sophomore Year receiving numerous Best Defensive Player of the Year accolades and made the Scripps Ranch Tournament All-American Team as Junior and Senior and First Team All League his Senior Year. Being a libero, he teaches technical soundness, discipline, and mental toughness, three aspects of the game that he believes are absolutely vital in the best players.

Jason attends college at the University of San Diego with a major in Biology and a minor in business.

Program details and tuition plans are outlined at socalvbc.com/tuition

The player and family chooses if they play on a Local or Travel Team. SoCal Coaching Director Aimee and her staff may offer suggestions to ensure you’re in a program that will give you the best experience.

Things to consider between the Local or Travel Program is player commitment and skill level. Local tournaments are more relaxed and the program emphasis leans towards camaraderie and friendly competition. Committed, competitive players are encouraged to join the Travel Program.

Placement within the Travel Program on a Regional, National or National PLUS team is determined by Aimee.
