About Coach Carlos

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 fourth season at The Academy.

Carlos is currently the Varsity Head Coach at Fishers (Ind.) High School. In 2014, he took the lead in restarting a boys program at the school, and in just three seasons, the team captured a Regional Championship to earn a spot in the State Tournament Finals weekend. Carlos plans to continue coaching and leading the program for the foreseeable future.

In 2015, Carlos received the CYO Monsignor Albert Busald Service Award in recognition to his volunteer contributions to CYO Boys Volleyball. 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 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 was the Boys Junior Varsity Head Coach for Indianapolis' Cathedral High School during the 2011 and 2012 seasons.

Carlos was born and raised in Puerto Rico, where volleyball is a very popular sport. Carlos 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.
