Miner Volleyball Camps
Head Volleyball Coach
Halaz was named the Head Volleyball Coach at Missouri S&T in January 2018. He has coached in the GLVC as an assistant at Rockhurst University – where he earned his bachelor's degree from in 2008 – for four seasons and during that time was involved in several aspects of the program, including scouting, initiating practice plans and assisting with game strategy and instruction. During those four seasons, the Hawks posted a record of 103-34 and reached the NCAA Division II Tournament in each of those years.
Rockhurst had the best regular season record in its final season as a member of the Heartland Conference in 2004, then posted the top mark in its inaugural season in the GLVC a year later. The Hawks won at least 22 games in each of the four seasons Halaz was assisting the program, including a 29-win campaign in 2005.
Halaz left Rockhurst following the 2007 season to become the assistant coach and director of volleyball operations at Saint Louis University, where he spent the next two seasons handling similar duties as he had at Rockhurst as well as working with alumni, social outreach events and fundraising for the program.
In both seasons at Saint Louis, the Billikens won at least a share of the Atlantic 10 Conference regular season championship and made the NCAA Tournament field in both years, advancing to the second round in 2008. The Billikens had a record of 53-13 over those two seasons. Halaz would return to the Saint Louis program in 2015 as a volunteer assistant coach.
Following the 2009 season, Halaz moved on to Georgetown University in Washington, D.C., where he was the lead court trainer for the Hoyas and also coordinated the team's summer camps, fundraisers and service projects. In addition, he was the Big East Conference's assistant coach liaison to the American Volleyball Coaches Association.
While at Georgetown, Halaz also became a program coach with USA Volleyball, where he coached A1 and A2 teams at camps and the High Performance Championships. He also coached the Youth National Team Prospects winter training program in 2015.
Since 2014, Halaz has served as the director of marketing and the outdoor director for High Performance STL Volleyball Club in St. Louis, where he has coached one of the club's top teams and has organized the outdoor training program. He has also handled the communication duties with the program's alumni as well as the club's website and social media outlets.
