A Message from the Coach Welcome to JMU women’s soccer. As the program’s first and only head coach, I am extremely proud of the history, tradition and reputation we have built here. Our players excel in the classroom, on the field and ultimately in the real world. Our schedule is always among the toughest because good players deserve to test their talents against the best. JMU women’s soccer continues to be one of the top programs in Virginia, in the CAA, the Mid-Atlantic region and in the nation… that is always our goal. Nestled in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley, JMU boasts tranquility, safety and a community that is committed to JMU athletics. The university has established itself with national rankings in many academic categories and is always evolving to chase its goal of being the best undergraduate university in the nation. This is a very dynamic time to be associated with JMU women’s soccer. I hope you will join us for an exciting season of soccer. Sincerely yours,
Dave Lombardo Head Soccer Coach

The Essence of JMU Soccer • Watch “Bridesmaids” and popular YouTube videos and you’ll fit in! Becky Sparks (‘14) • Before each game, after the coaches give us a pregame talk, all the girls come together and say a chant that gets us pumped up for the game and reminds us that we are a team and a family. - Ellen Forrest (‘15) • We have a team donkey that the coach gives to the player who has done or said the dumbest thing. The donkey is passed around throughout the season and sometimes the coach is even the donkey recipient. Stephanie Hamilton (‘15) • We sing and play funny games to get us through the 10-15 minute freezing cold ice baths required in preseason. - Olivia Tomoff (‘14) • We make many hilarious team videos. -- Sam Lofton (‘12)
