Coach Shane Chamberlin
COACH FOR GLASS CITY FURY
SHANE CHAMBERLIN is a graduate of Delta High School in 1994 where he was a 4 year varsity letter winner. During Shane’s senior year he was the starting point guard for Delta and led the team the School’s first every Regional appearance. After high school Shane looked to continue his playing career at Defiance College. At Defiance College, during the ’94/’95 season, Shane earned and maintained a spot on the varsity roster. After his freshman season, Shane decided to turn his focus to academics and brought his playing career to an end. Shane graduated from Defiance College in 1998. Since 1998 Shane has been employed as the Chief Probation Officer for the Fulton County Adult Probation Department. Along with his wife and 2 children, Shane resides in Wauseon, Ohio.
Shane’s passion for coaching youth was evident even during his time in high school assisting with the elementary basketball programs as a high school athlete. Coach Chamberlin spent time as a Varsity Assistant Coach at Delta High School. He then ventured into the basketball officiating world for 10+ years always with the thought of returning to the coaching ranks. Shane’s daughter, Macy, developed an interest in hoops and this was a perfect time for him to return to the bench. Shane coached 3rd and 4th grade girl’s teams for the Wauseon Recreation Program in 2014 and 2015. Last year Shane was brought on board with the Glass City Fury program and coached 5th grade girls teams during the Fall and Winter of 2016. This season Shane returns to the Fury and will be coaching 4th, 5th, and 6th grade girls during the Fall and Winter.
Coach Chamberlin brings forth a high energy approach during practices and games, asking each player to give 100% whether it be during practice or game. Much of what Shane teaches not only applies to the basketball court but also to life in general. Many times you will hear Coach urge his players, “don’t cheat the cone” and during breaks he ties the theory of not cutting corners to everyday life for youngsters whether it be in the classroom or at home. Coach Shane looks forward to working with Glass City Fury for years to come as the principle of G.E.T. (Gratitude, Encouragement, and Thanks) rings very true to him.
