Alumna & Director of Coaching

We hope to empower girls and young women to want more, expect more and achieve more in soccer and life. From a soccer perspective, we believe in setting a high standard for our players. We want our girls to continue to push to reach and raise that bar on a daily basis. 

We look forward to creating an environment that challenges our players both mentally and physically while never losing sight of the importance of positive character traits. We aim to guide young girls to be on a path to becoming perseverant, dedicated, intelligent, respectful, strong women.

“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
