Two members of coaching staff of the UBC Okanagan Heat women’s soccer team are taking over the coaching duties for the Thompson Okanagan Football Club U18 girls’ program.
Ashlee Davison and Carmen Lindsay will join TOFC this season, taking over the duties from Gary Graham, who is stepping side as head coach.
Davison has served as an assistant to UBCO head coach Claire Paterson for the last six seasons, including 2014, the Heat’s first campaign in Canada West.
Lindsay, who was born in Kelowna, is coming off her first season as an assistant with the Heat.
Both Davison and Lindsay have five seasons of CIS playing experience.
The two newest TOFC coaches are excited to be working with the best young players in the region and look forward to helping them prepare for the next stages of their soccer careers.
“The coaches bring an understanding of the level needed for players to meet the university standard,” said TOFC chairman Brian Dewar. “The addition of these coaches provides a great transition for this group.”
