FIERCE boasts one of the only predominantly female coaching staffs in the country. Most our cohorts have collegiate or semi-pro playing experience. Our entire staff will obtain USSF "D" licenses by January 2020, with FIERCE proud to be hosting one of the nation's first women's-only licensing pathways. Most importantly, all FIERCE staff coaches are successful professionals that serve as strong role models off the pitch as well.

We are proud to have attracted amazing vision- and culturally aligned leaders who are passionate about our mission. FIERCE Coaching Cohorts have leadership experience not only as collegiate and professional soccer players, but as business professionals that inspire our girls to do great things off the pitch as well.

Cohorts work in pairs to collaboratively cover training sessions and matches. They'll be supported by DOC and volunteer assistants and can coordinate as needed to cover match responsibilities. The goal is for FIERCE girls to view both coaches as their lead mentor. Cohorts will be eligible for the maximum stipend upon obtaining USSF "D" license and proving capable of leading matches and training independently.
