Coach Jon Shogan brings a life-long passion for the game of basketball to Bay City.
He has been the Boys Varsity Basketball Coach at Jewish Community High School (JCHS) in San Francisco for the last six seasons. Previously, he was the assistant for two seasons before becoming Head Coach in 2013.
Shogan quickly rebuilt the program and has amassed a 52-23 record in the last three seasons and has reached the postseason four straight years.
The 2017-2018 season was the most successful in school history. After joining a new league, JCHS advanced to the BCL championship in their first season. The team also qualified for the North Coast Section Division 6 Playoffs, earning a four seed, the school's highest ever. By winning two games in sectionals, the Wolves qualified for the CIF NorCal State Playoff, continuing their postseason run with a top-eight finish for all Division 6 schools in Northern California.
The 2016-2017 team also reached the postseason and finished 15-9.
The 2015-2016 Wolves tied a school record with 19 wins and narrowly lost in the league playoff championship. That season Jon was voted by the 15 league coaches as the PSAL Coach of the Year.
Shogan has also coached high school volleyball in the Bay Area and has worked as a basketball and volleyball referee for various age groups, including high school competition. He definitely prefers coaching basketball, though.
He grew up in the Bay Area and started playing competitive basketball at a young age. He attended Acalanes High School in Lafayette, and then attended Bucknell University, where he majored in Business Administration.
At Bucknell, Shogan played on the Men’s Volleyball Team for four years, serving as team captain for two seasons. He was also a student-assistant for the Bucknell Women’s Volleyball team.
Coach Shogan is in his 6th year with Bay City and is the Chief Operations Officer.
