Oak Hills Christian College Athletic Director Jeremy Anderson is pleased to announce the hiring of Charlotte Snowden as Head Women’s Volleyball and Basketball Coach. Coach Snowden will begin her position in Mid-July. Anderson is quoted as saying “After a long and meticulous coaching search, I’m very excited to announce that we have found the right candidate for the job. Coach Snowden not only has the experience to immediately impact our women’s programs, but she has a heart for ministering to our female student-athletes which is a huge priority here at OHCC.”
Throughout her coaching career Coach Snowden has received numerous “Coach of the Year” awards within the NCCAA (National Christian College Athletic Association) DII levels in both volleyball and basketball. Her most recent “Coach if the Year” award was in 2015 for the Arkansas Christian Schools Association in high school volleyball. She was also awarded the NCCAA Meritorious Award for her years of service within the National Christian College Athletic Association.
Coach Snowden has served in several elected administrative positions within the NCCAA DII levels. She was elected as the National Vice Chair (Women’s Basketball) and went on to serve as the National Chair (Women’s Basketball). She has also served at the NCCAA DII regional levels by representing the following regions; Basketball Regional Chair (North and South Regions), and Volleyball Regional Chair (North and South Regions).
Coach Snowden has been coaching volleyball and basketball at the college level for over 18 years (and at the High School levels for over a decade). Her coaching has allowed her to serve the following institutes: Southeastern University (FL), Trinity Bible College (ND), Mid Continent University (KY), and Ecclesia College (AR). She has even taken her coaching career overseas, as she taught and coached in Israel. Her most recent position was serving as the Girls JH/HS Head Volleyball Coach at Lifeway Christian School in Arkansas.
Oak Hills has tasked Coach Snowden with reviving a volleyball program which has been idle the past two season and she will also endeavor to build our women’s basketball program which was launched last year. “We look forward to the relaunching of our women’s volleyball program and hope to build that along with our women’s basketball program through diligent recruiting efforts, game strategies and success on the court” states Athletic Director Jeremy Anderson.
Upon accepting the position, Coach Snowden commented, “I’m really blessed and excited to become part of the Wolfpack Coaching Staff as I’m a firm believer in Christian Education, and my life is a testimony of that belief. Coaching has always been my passion, impacting lives both on and off the court is what motivates me. I’m committed to serving at OHCC and am humbled to be given the opportunity of building both the women’s sport program’s at this time and pray the God will grant me favor and His wisdom in the process”.
