Coaching Staff Head Coach Kwame Lloyd Kwame Lloyd was hired as Wittenberg’s women’s soccer head coach in July 2011. Lloyd came to Wittenberg after a brief time as an assistant coach at Gardner Webb University, where he was responsible for coordinating recruiting activities and evaluating prospective student-athletes. He also managed team travel and acted as the program’s liaison to the compliance and academic services directors. In his first season on the Wittenberg sidelines, Lloyd led the Tigers to records of 8-9-1 overall and 3-5 in the challenging North Coast Athletic Conference. Lloyd was named Most Outstanding Freshman in 1988 at Lincoln University before transferring to Susquehanna University and earning three letters in both soccer and track & field. He was the soccer team’s Most Valuable Player in 1990 and he served as team captain for the track team in 1992 and 1993. After earning his bachelor’s degree in political science from Susquehanna, he played one year with the Harrisburg Heat of the National Professional Soccer League. Lloyd returned to his alma mater to begin his coaching career, serving as head coach of the women’s soccer team and assistant

coach of the women’s lacrosse team from 1994-97. From there, he went to Whittier College for four years as director of soccer and women’s lacrosse coach. He oversaw all management and administration for the men’s and women’s soccer and women’s lacrosse programs, served as an NCAA Regional Committee member, taught a fitness and wellness course and directed an annual soccer camp. From 2001-08, Lloyd served as head coach of both the women’s soccer and women’s lacrosse teams at Christopher Newport University. He led the soccer team to four USA South Athletic Conference regular season titles, three USA South Tournament crowns and three appearances in the NCAA Division III Tournament, including a national quarterfinal finish in 2004. His lacrosse teams won three regular season and two tournament titles in conference play and advanced to the NCAA Division III Tournament twice. Along the way, Lloyd earned four USA South women’s soccer Coach of the Year designations and three USA women’s lacrosse Coach of the Year awards. He also was named VaSID All-State Coach of the Year in 2004. Lloyd’s last head coaching stop prior to Wittenberg came at the University of Vermont between 2008 and 2010. He and his wife, Julie, have two children, a son named Kijana and daughter named Jada.

Assistant Coach Jamie Tipton Jamie Tipton joined the Tiger coaching staff prior to the 2011 season. A native of Key West, Fla., Tipton played collegiate soccer for Embry-Riddle University, helping the Eagles to a Florida Sun Conference championship, a Region XIV title, and a national tournament appearance as the team consistently ranked in the top 25 nationally.

Tipton served as an assistant coach at Archbishop Alter High

School in nearby Kettering from 2008-10 and also assisted with the Northeastern High School program in 2011.

Wittenberg Athletics Facilities The Wittenberg athletic facilities, a unique blend of old and new, provide opportunities for a wide variety of recreational and fitness activities. The Health, Physical Education and Recreation Center (HPERC) is the centerpiece of athletic activity. The main unit can be converted to three full-sized basketball courts, three volleyball courts or three tennis courts. It seats 3,000 spectators for intercollegiate athletic events, and 4,300 for concerts and other public events. A second unit houses six raquetball courts with an upper balcony for instruction and a 25-meter by 25-yard swimming pool with one- and three-meter diving boards, and a spectator viewing area. An athletic training room, locker rooms and team rooms are also located in the HPERC, which connects to the Wittenberg Field House, home of the Tigers since 1929, which houses offices and a state-of-the-art weight training facility. A 4,622-square-foot extension off the front of the HPERC opened in August 2005. The Bob Rosencrans Hall of Honor Fitness Center includes a wide range of weight training and cardiovascular equipment.

Statement of Responsibility for Balance Between Academics & Athletics

Wittenberg Athletics Philosophy

Student-athletes are primarily responsible for balancing academics and athletics. However, recognizing the pressure that studentathletes face from competing time demands placed upon them by both professors and coaches, we establish the following statement of responsibility. The statement assumes that the student’s primary responsibility is to academic coursework and that practice sessions are always subordinate to class attendance. Students should work with advisers to schedule courses so that practices and contests are not in conflict with academic courses. Student-athletes are expected to contact professors in advance in order to resolve conflicts between class attendance and participation in athletic contests. It is recommended that student-athletes miss not more than four sessions of any class in a semester for regular season athletic contests. Permission of a Faculty Athletic Representative is required before additional excused absences will be permitted. Coaches will, as necessary, establish and maintain communications with the professors of team athletes regarding academic progress. Professors should feel free to contact coaches regarding the academic responsibilities of student-athletes.

The Wittenberg Athletic Department is an integral part of the university that strives to achieve the same standards of excellence that exist within various academic disciplines at the university. Further, the athletic department embraces the concept that the student-athletes are first and foremost students, possessing individual rights, academic abilities, personal interests and ambitions comparable to those of other members of the general student body. Wittenberg University is committed to the principles and practices of amateurism, student-athlete welfare, gender equity, sportsmanship and fair play, cultural diversity and overall athletics excellence, and this commitment shall reflect in every aspect of the athletics departmental operations.

The North Coast Athletic Conference and Wittenberg University work together to encourage good sportsmanship on the court, on the field and in the stands. The Wittenberg Athletics Department expects all competitors and spectators to help maintain an open, accepting and competitive environment in order to promote positive, enjoyable experiences for all involved with Division III athletics.
