Bevill State Community College (BSCC) is excited to announce the appointment of Charlotte Beasley as the new Head Coach of the Women’s Volleyball Team. Beasley has more than 30 years of experience coaching volleyball and is currently a physical education teacher at Winfield City High School.
Beasley is a graduate of Marion County High School in Guin, Alabama where she played volleyball and basketball. She continued her basketball career at Freed-Hardeman College on scholarship for four years while earning a bachelor’s degree in Health and Physical Education K-12.
Beasley began her coaching career at Berry High School in Berry, Alabama where she was the head varsity volleyball and softball coach and junior high boys’ basketball coach. After four years, Beasley transitioned to Curry High School where she was the head varsity volleyball, basketball, and softball coach. At Curry, her teams won many conference and county championships as well as a final four appearance in volleyball. After four years, Beasley moved to Hamilton High School where she started the volleyball program after a 15-year hiatus. During her seven-year tenure, along with starting the volleyball program, she transitioned slow-pitch softball to fast-pitch. Currently, Beasley is going into her 18th year at Winfield City High School where she teaches physical education at the elementary, middle, and high schools. During her time at Winfield, she has been the head varsity volleyball coach and previously the assistant girls’ basketball and softball coach. Beasley was also a part of the group that developed the new Physical Education Course of Study for the State of Alabama.
Bevill State Athletic Director, Max Weaver, stated, “Coach Beasley brings a great deal of coaching experience and expertise to Bevill State as the new Head Coach of our Volleyball Team. Moreover, she has a strong commitment to the success of our student-athletes on the court and in the classroom as well, which are both essential components of the mission and goals of Bevill State Athletics. I believe the future of our volleyball program is in excellent hands under her leadership. I look forward to an exciting 2022 season!”
“Volleyball is my love. In high school, I thought basketball would be my sport of choice, but once I began coaching volleyball and watching my athletes excel at the game, volleyball has been the sport I enjoy coaching the most. It is very exciting to see young players begin the game of volleyball in seventh grade and continue to grow until they are seniors becoming passionate about the game as they progress,” stated Coach Charlotte Beasley. “Coaching young ladies and watching them learn the game of volleyball is rewarding, but watching female student-athletes grow into young women with great character and work ethic is an even greater joy.”
“My husband, Doug Beasley, and I are excited about the opportunity to be a part of the Bevill State family and the Fayette community. I am looking forward to being the volleyball coach and growing the game of volleyball at Bevill State. My goal is to not only teach and coach the game of volleyball but to help student-athletes excel in the classroom and grow as young adults,” continued Beasley.
Beasley resides in Winfield, Alabama with her husband Doug Beasley. She also has a daughter, Brooke Beasley, who coaches volleyball at Wallace State Community College - Hanceville.
“Charlotte Beasley brings a high level of positive energy and enthusiasm to her new head coaching position with Bevill State Volleyball,” said Dr. Joel Hagood, President of Bevill State Community College. “Coach Beasley has a background of competitive success and academic excellence. We look forward to seeing our volleyball program grow and are confident this will happen under her leadership. Go Bears!”
