Melanie Tracey

Head Coach

My name is Melanie Tracey, and I am a 4th-year student at Penn State University. I have been passionately playing volleyball for the past ten years. I played throughout my high school career and countless summers of competitive doubles beach volleyball. I was recruited to play on Penn State Mont Alto's women’s volleyball team in 2018. By 2019 I became their starting libero, was named team captain, and was ranked third libero in the entire USCAA. I also was awarded the John Fritz Sportsmanship award, several semesters of Academic All-Conference, earned honorable mention accolades for All American, and was nominated for the 2020-2021 All-Senior Team. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, my colligate career just like many other sports seasons was cut short and restricted and I wasn't able to achieve the final climax of my decade-long sports journey. However, I am extremely thankful for my time at Penn State Mont Alto. In the winter and spring of 2021, I began my coaching chapter by helping assist a 14-year-old girls' team for the Ballyhoo Volleyball Club in York, PA. As I continue to grow within my next athletic chapter that is coaching, my only hope is that I can share my passion for the sport with the next generation of phenomenal athletes. My goal as a coach is that all the players I interact with leave the gym with skills further than volleyball, life skills such as teamwork, leadership, and respect. I can’t wait to work with the Happy Volley Academy this upcoming club season!  


“What keeps me going is not winning, but the quest for reaching potential in myself as a coach and my kids as fearless athletes. It’s the pursuit of excellence.”

I started playing rec league volleyball when I as in 6th grade in Virginia. I then moved to playing travel when I was 13 and played with several different clubs through high school. I played libero and setter, served as co captain on two of my travel teams, played in the Girls Junior National Championship in New Orleans with my 13s team, and lettered in varsity volleyball for three years with my high school in York, PA. I am currently a student at Penn State pursuing an Accounting degree. I'm really excited to be a part of HVA and look forward to helping others love it as much as I do.
