For years, Carlos Capo has been a driving force behind the development of boys volleyball in the Indianapolis area, and he will be back for his sixth season at The Academy.
Carlos is currently the Varsity Head Coach at Fishers (Ind.) High School. In 2014, he restarted the boys program at the school, and just five seasons later, the team captured the 2019 State Championship with an in-state record of 36-0. Carlos was named Indiana Coach of the Year in 2019, and Conference Coach of the Year in 2017 and 2019. Other team achievements include three consecutive Regional Championships (2017-19), a conference championship (2019), and Indy Metro Tournament Champions (2019).
In 2021, the Tigers of Fishers repeated as State Champions only dropping one match the entire year. They also kept their active regional, metro, and conference championship streak alive.
In 2010 and 2011, Carlos ran a boys league, and that league has grown into an official CYO program since the 2012 season. He was the original Boys Volleyball Coordinator and a coach at St. Pius Catholic School in Indianapolis and served in those capacities for six years. In 2015, Carlos received the CYO Monsignor Albert Busald Service Award in recognition to his volunteer contributions to CYO Boys Volleyball. In 2013, he led the 5th/6th A Team to an undefeated season and the school’s first City Championship. He also captured another City Championship in 2015 with St. Pius’ Cadet A team. Prior to developing boys volleyball in the area, he coached a St. Pius 7th/8th grade girls team for three years.
Additionally, Carlos helped with Irish Juniors during the 2011 and 2012 seasons.
Carlos was born and raised in Puerto Rico, where volleyball is a very popular sport. He started playing the sport in seventh grade and eventually played for the Purdue Men’s Club Volleyball Team, for which he was a two-year captain. He continues to play in indoor and outdoor competitive leagues and tournaments.
Carlos earned his bachelor’s from Purdue University in hospitality management before obtaining his MBA from The University of South Florida. When not involved with volleyball, he enjoys spending time with his wife and two sons, golfing and playing basketball.
