Alyssa is a born and raised San Diego native with a well rounded background in the volleyball game as a player, coach, scout and official. Her love and competitive career in the game began at an early age of 10 years old, sparked from her father whom was also a volleyball coach. As a Mission Hills Alumna, Alyssa went on to play for the Women’s (NCFV) Volleyball team at the California State University of San Marcos, where she earned her B.A. in Human Development: Children Services. Shortly after, she earned her M.A. at Concordia University Irvine in Athletic Administration and Coaching. During her graduate career, she became a College Volleyball Scout at National Scouting Report for the San Diego region. If she is not court side scouting, you can find her on the court coaching beach, indoor or even on the referee stand officiating matches/tournaments for both the girls and boys divisions of the Southern California Volleyball Association and the San Diego Federation Volleyball Officials Association.
She has coached girls high school volleyball all over the San Diego county and has assisted in guiding 5 varsity seasons to CIF playoffs, 2 CIF finals and 2 to State playoffs. Before moving to the South Bay, she was previously the Club Director for Ace VBC of North County and had coached at several North County High School’s including Escondido HS, Escondido Charter HS, Rancho Buena Vista HS, and Valley Center HS. Since moving down to the South Bay of San Diego, she has coached at Fury Beach VBC, Flash 619, Otay Ranch HS and is now currently coaching beach at Neptune Beach VBC, and indoor for Point Break VBC.
Feeling elated to now be a Jaguar, Alyssa states, “It is such an honor to be a part of a collegiate volleyball program and providing a platform that not only delivers opportunity for these student athletes; but is ultimately the bridge that can make their collegiate dreams possible in moving forward for their athletic and academic careers. I’m excited to continue on this journey strengthening our Women’s Volleyball program here at SWC, while passing on my love and passion for the game in the seasons to come. GO JAGS!”
