Bio from Richard J. Michelli
Vito Chiaravalloti II is the Athletic Director at CBA. A 1999 alumnus and athlete himself at the Academy, he took on the role of AD in 2014 after serving as assistant athletic director from 2010-2012.
In his student days at CBA, he was a very accomplished swimmer and baseball player. Prior to returning to CBA as an administrator, Vito was a professional baseball player for six seasons. Drafted in the 15th round by the Toronto Blue Jays, he played four seasons with the Jays, one with the Orioles, and three in the Atlantic League for the Somerset Patriots and Camden Riversharks.
As CBA Athletic Director, Vito is responsible for administrating 18 varsity sports, 65 coaches and more than 700 student-athletes. He’s embarked on innovative efforts, including the launch of the CBA Digital Network and CBA Corporate Partnership Program, which sold more than $100,000 in sponsorship ads in less than two years of start.
Vito Chiaravalloti is a highly respected and admired coach, mentor and motivational speaker. I encourage you to visit his website, listen to his podcasts and read his blog – where he shares inspirational thoughts to encourage you to be your very best in life, no matter what you do.
Vito Jr. has close Italian-American ties. His late father, Vito J. Chiaravalloti Sr., was born in San Vito, Italy. He came to the United States in 1955 and settled in Bayonne, New Jersey. He also lived in Jersey City before moving to Middletown, NJ. The elder Vito was a self employed barber who owned and operated Vito’s Bergen Point Hair Styling in Bayonne for 45 years before retiring in 2010.
