White to Helm Championship
Football Team

Los Angeles Valley College is proud to announce Matthew White as their new head football coach and full-time member of the Kinesiology department!

White, 27, was the assistant head coach/special teams Matt Whitecoordinator under Robert Tucker the last two seasons, helping them through a 9-2 bowl season and a perfect 11-0 bowl championship season.  Matt worked with Team USA men’s national team under head coach Dan Hawkins in 2015.  Matt also worked with linebackers at West Hills Community College in 2015 (under Robert Tucker) and coached the defensive line and secondary at Montana Tech University under Chuck Morrell (2013-15).  Matt has had a major presence in the strength and conditioning of our Monarch athletes as the head football strength coach, while working at UCLA as a strength coach and adjunct instructor.  He previously worked as the head strength and conditioning coach at Montana Tech University.

White has been the interim coach at LA Valley since Tucker left in December, responsible for running the daily football operation, strength and conditioning, and recruiting, before being hired this month.  His district official start date is July 1st, 2017. He is currently putting his staff together that will include some coaches from last season.

White is a native of Montana and attended community college in Iowa before finishing his playing career at the University of Sioux Falls.  He began his coaching career at Montana Tech University.  Tucker brought Matt with him from West Hills to handle the strength program and run the special teams.  Matt also has been known as a tireless worker in recruiting.

“This is a win-win for Valley College,” says athletic director, Jim Fenwick. “This will benefit both our student-athletes and our Kinesiology department. Matt has demonstrated his ability to work hard, care for the kids, and coach many phases of the game of football, efficiently. 

I want to thank President Endrijonas, Dean Jermain Pipkin, V.P. Karen Daar and the hiring committee for allowing this search to transition through the process.   

 

Softball Names New coach

Greg will take over the head softball position immediately.

A Message From the Athletic Director

Welcome to a new spring of Monarch Athletics.  There is a renewed energy and spirit that comes along with the beginning of our spring season.  We have had an amazing adventure through the 2016/17 school-year.  Our football team went undefeated (11-0) and won the American Division Championship Bowl and our Men’s Water Polo won the Western State Conference, in back to back, stunning style!  Our women’s basketball team won their conference and went to the Postseason!

In addition, our women’s basketball team has been selected as a California Community College Athletic Association Scholar Team Recipient for 2016/17!

I can promise that our coaches and staff will continue to work hard to create an environment that creates excellence and expects success at the highest level.

It is great to see the hard work and dedication by coaches, staff and student-athletes, payoff in their recognized success.  The athletic department is a machine with many moving parts, and the collaboration of those parts is what makes the success so incredible.  The staff is devoted to the success of our students and I appreciate their efforts. 

I am looking forward to the spring sports success and the rebuilding of our programs through recruiting.  If you are an athlete interested in playing any of our sports, please make sure to contact us!

On behalf of our coaches, staff, and alumni, we welcome you to LA Valley and thank you for your support.  Through our combined efforts, we will continue to generate the resources necessary for success within our athletic department. 

 

With Valley Pride!

Sincerely,

Jim Fenwick, Athletic Director

The Zone"

Our student athletes refer to our new computer lab, as “The Zone”, or the endzone that gets them where they want to go!

 

 

 









The new state of the art, satellite computer lab that was recently completed, within the new Community

Service Building, next to the Monarch Athletic Center. The "Zone" is funded and supported by the Equity Grant on campus.

This facility is available to all student athletes from 9am to 2pm daily! English and Math tutors are provided every Tuesday and Wednesday.  The computer center is the home of our athletic counselor, Reggie Reed (pictured on the right). Reggie is available to meet with all student athletes regarding their counseling needs. Full supervision is provided by John Fonua (pictured on the left).  As the supervising monitor, John collaborates with head coaches of all sports to ensure their teams study hall goals are met.

We are fortunate for the Equity Grant funding and proud of what we have to offer our student athletes to stay committed to their academic goals.
