Below is information about our coaching staff. While coaches are assigned
to individual teams, the group works collectively in assisting each other so that the girls get the benefit of the combined
experience and input of the coaching staff. All of our team coaches are licensed by the United States Soccer Federation
in order to provide the experience and abilities necessary to help our players achieve their individual and team goals.
