Chris Sandro is the head men's tennis coach at Alma College, a position he assumed following the 2005 season.
Sandro, a 1999 graduate of Hope College, works as a counselor at Alma Middle School, a position he has held since 2001. In addition to his duties as counselor, he has also been actively involved in coaching activities, including coaching boys golf in the fall. Prior to taking over as head men's tennis coach at Alma College, he has coached freshmen football, freshmen basketball and junior varsity tennis.
This is a great opportunity and presents a new challenge for me," said Sandro. "Coaching at the collegiate level has been a long-term goal. I'm anticipating great things as we build an off-season training program and begin to recruit talented tennis players and students."
Sandro played two years of competitive tennis for the Flying Dutchmen and looks to build a competitive program at Alma College.
"Chris is a welcome addition to the athletic department staff," said Director of Athletics Ellen Curtis. "His knowledge of the game, paired with his experience as a student-athlete in the MIAA will be a great benefit in recruiting and coaching Alma College students."
Sandro earned his Masters degree in Counseling from Central Michigan University. He currently resides in Alma.
