Woodard, who led TSC’s 18 and under girls team to a national title last year, also serves as TSC’s Director of Business Operations. She traveled to Los Angeles earlier this year to be recognized at the 2017 NSCAA Convention.

“I am so humbled to have received these awards. I am so proud of the accomplishments of this team and consider myself so lucky to have been part of this amazing journey,” says Woodard. “It has been an honor to work with this group of talented young women, they are true trailblazers in Tennessee youth soccer. It is my hope that the young female soccer players in our state can see that setting a high goal, and making the necessary personal sacrifices can translate into winning the national championship.”

“We are very proud of Ronnie and her achievement as not only the girls’ Regional Coach of the Year, but the girls’ NSCAA National Coach of the Year,” says TSC Executive Director, Stuart Brown. “Her dedication and love of soccer shows every day. Ronnie worked hard to lead our U18 girls team to the national championship last year and she is most deserving of this recognition.”

“A special thanks to all of the Tennessee Soccer Club coaches and staff, to the families of each player, Tennessee Youth Soccer and our local community for all of the support as these girls competed for the national championship,” adds Woodard.
