Marcella Shorty is entering into her first year as Athletic Trainer for Tamalpais High School for the 2019-2020 school year.




As noted by University of South Carolina: 

With now 19 years of experience as an NCAA Division I women’s basketball athletic trainer, Marcella Shorty joined the South Carolina staff in July 2015. The move reunited Shorty with Gamecock head coach Dawn Staley, with whom she worked at Temple.

Prior to coming to South Carolina, Shorty spent 13 seasons at Stanford working with its women’s basketball program. During that time, she saw the Cardinal reach two NCAA championship games, four NCAA Final Fours, three Elite Eights and two Sweet 16s. Shorty coordinated the team’s total health care with a team physician, nutritionist, performance coach, physical therapist and message therapist. In addition to her work with women’s basketball, Shorty was a co-director of the Advanced Athletic Training Fellowship Program and coordinated the NCAA Drug Testing program on campus.

After earning her master’s degree from Temple in August 1997, Shorty was named assistant athletic trainer at the university. She worked with the Owls’ women’s basketball program for five seasons, including the first two seasons of Staley’s tenure. Shorty also worked with men’s and women’s soccer, baseball and softball during her time at Temple and served as an adjunct professor as well.

Shorty is a certified member of the National Athletic Trainers Association along with being certified by the American Red Cross in CPR/AED. She earned her bachelor’s degree in athletic training from the University of New Mexico in 1990.
