Alyssa Batty

Alyssa Batty will begin her fourth season as head women's lacrosse coach at Chatham University in 2020-21.

Batty comes to Chatham after previously spending two seasons as an assistant coach at Illinois Wesleyan University. During her time at IWU, Batty helped the Titans reach their first ever conference championship, and improve an overall record of 7-9 in their first season as a program to 15-4 this past year.

Before Batty landed at IWU, she spent one season as a volunteer assistant coach at Division I Delaware State University. Currently, Batty also works with Quaker City Lacrosse Club which is originally out of Philadelphia.

Before Batty began her coaching career, she had an outstanding career as a player. Alyssa was a four-year starting goalie at Wesley College in Delaware, and upon graduation she had broken the school records for most saves in a season and most saves in a career. Entering her senior season, the NCAA recognized Alyssa has one of the top five returning Division III players in the nation. During her 2013 season, she would earn Second-Team All-Capital Conference.

Alyssa has many goals for the new women's lacrosse program at Chatham, but the ultimate goal is to provide a positive and comfortable learning environment where her student-athletes can strive on and off the field. "On the field, Chatham Women's Lacrosse will become a dominate team within the Ohio River Lacrosse Conference within the first few years, and off the field our program will make academics, community service, and school pride a major priority."

It has been extremely helpful in allowing me to locate schools in a certain geography or division. Having information about the coaches and lacrosse program gave me added background without hours of research!
