Team Picture


Who Are We?

 

Glen Shields 2004 girl’s rep team started out over five years ago, when coaches Dmitri Ovtchinnikov and Tiffany Cafaro took a core group of players to form a new team.

The early philosophy was to cut no one, as players develop at a different pace; the girls’ commitment and bond has remained strong as nine of those players are still with the team today.

The attention, since the beginning, has been to promote an intelligent and attractive brand of soccer, with an emphasis on ball control, playing from the back, taking on opponents 1 vs. 1, and a focus on tactical play. This approach will bode well long-term, as players aspire to higher levels of play, college/university, and beyond.

“Every team I coach I set the next goal higher than before, but [I make the goals] realistic to achieve. The goal was always to compete at the highest level possible, playing an intelligent and attractive brand of soccer based on ball control, allowing players to develop individually as intelligent football players …”

- Coach, Dmitri Ovtchinnikov

“My focus is identifying strengths and weakness in players both individually and when they are working as a team. I like to focus on the positive and push the girls to be confident and optimistic no matter who they play. It is not always about winning, but I want players to give 100% every time they go on the field.”
