The Daytona Beach Shores, Florida native comes to the Warriors after three highly successful seasons as the head men basketball coach and assistant athletic director at Peninsula College in Port Angeles, Washington.

In his first season at the helm of the Pirates, Von Vogt led Peninsula College to their first NWAACC Championship in forty-one years. Von Vogt was honored as the NWAACC Coach of the Year as the Pirates went 22-7. Heading into his second year, the Pirates started out the year ranked #1 in the NWAACC and earned their first national ranking in school history. The Pirates finished 25-6 overall and 13-3 in conference before falling in the final four of the NWAACC tournament. Last season, the Pirates finished the season 18-12. In three seasons, Von Vogt has coached one NWAACC MVP, four All-NWAACC, six All-North Division and five All-Academic players. In addition to coaching, he served as the athletic development coordinator for the Pirate Athletic Association.
Prior to his arrival at Peninsula, Von Vogt spent the previous four seasons as the lead assistant men's basketball coach and recruiting coordinator at Arizona Western College in Yuma, Arizona. During his time at AWC, he helped guide the Matadors to three Arizona Community College Athletic Conference championships and two NJCAA Region XVIII championships as they went 103-24 over Von Vogt’s four-year tenure. Von Vogt recruited and developed four All-Americans, seven All-Region and ten All-Conference players.
Before arriving at AWC in 2006, he was the assistant at Eastern Kentucky University where the Division I Colonels placed fourth in the Ohio Valley Conference. Prior to that, he was the head coach at Oxford College of Emory University, where he led the Eagles to a pair of playoff appearances. His three years are the three most successful seasons in the history of the program earning two playoff appearances which were the first in the program’s history. In his third season, Oxford College of Emory University recorded a school-record 22 wins, regional and inter-regional championships and a spot in the NJCAA Top 10, which earned Von Vogt the 2004-05 Region Coach of the Year honors.
Von Vogt's first coaching experience came under the legendary coach Lefty Driesell. Von Vogt served as the director of basketball operations at Georgia State under Driesell from 2000 through 2002. During that time, the Panthers earned a trip to the 2001 NCAA Tournament and advanced to the second round with a win over Wisconsin. Georgia State followed with it’s first-ever trip to the NIT in 2002. Von Vogt also worked as a graduate assistant for Georgia Tech for two seasons.
Von Vogt earned a Master’s Degree in Sports Administration from Georgia State and a Bachelor's Degree in Mass Communications from the University of South Florida.
This program is intended to help players develop athletically. The individual camp is a great opportunity for young basketball players looking to develop and refine their fundamental basketball skills. This program also includes a curriculum for intermediate/advanced players looking to enhance their skill set at the post, wing or guard position. Emphasis is placed on fundamental development, shooting, offensive moves, defense, rebounding, team play, and more.

We cannot offer scholarships due to NCAA regulations. Our affiliation with NCAA coaches and schools puts us in a position where any scholarship money can be seen as an inducement to a future collegiate athlete. This puts our coaches and our host universities in jeopardy of damaging their status with the NCAA and incurring penalties at the hands of their organizing body.
