Alverno Heights Academy Welcomes New Head Volleyball Coach
Alverno Heights Academy is thrilled to welcome Ivy Chew as the Varsity Volleyball Coach for the 2017-2018 school year.
Coach Chew brings over a decade of coaching experience to Alverno having worked with various levels of athletes in both the school and club settings. She previously served as the Club Director and Head Volleyball Coach for Tandem Volleyball Club as well as the Head Volleyball Coach for Cantwell Sacred Heart of Mary High School, both in Montebello. In addition to her position at Alverno Heights Academy, Coach Chew is currently the Head Volleyball Coach for Starlings City of Los Angeles Volleyball Club and the Head Volleyball Coach for boys’ volleyball at South Pasadena High School.
Coach Chew has extensive experience with leading teams to the play-offs and is particularly attuned and well-prepared to train student-athletes to reach their full potential on and off the court. Her club experience has offered her opportunities to train and prepare athletes for the college recruitment process and she looks forward to bringing those experiences and training techniques to the varsity volleyball program at Alverno Heights Academy.
“As a coach, I not only want to teach my athletes the love of the game but also the experience of playing a high school sport, which includes teaching them the true meaning of unity as a team and learning to be a true student-athlete,” Coach Chew said. “When you show athletes how to be an outstanding student, it reflects in their actions on the court and field.”
“Alverno Heights Academy is thrilled to welcome Ivy Chew as our new Varsity Volleyball Coach,” said Head of School, Julia V. Fanara. “She has an exciting and experienced background and is joining a dynamic athletics department committed to providing our young women the opportunity to grow not only as student-athletes, but as individuals as well. We look forward to the season ahead as well as the years to come in this exciting new direction for our athletics program.”
