Assistant coach Stoia assists U19 women's national team

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. - West Virginia University women’s soccer senior associate head coach Lisa Stoia is currently in Chula Vista, California, assisting with the United States’ U19 Women’s National Team Training Camp at Elite Athletic Training Center.

Camp opened May 5 and will run in conjunction with the U18 Women’s National Team Training Camp. Stoia, a member of the U.S. U21 Women’s National Team Pool in 2003, will assist head coach Keri Sarver at the eight-day camp, working primarily with the midfielders. In addition to aiding with the planning of camp sessions and game schematics, Stoia also will hold daily video session analysis with the midfielders.

“I am very thankful and excited for the opportunity to work within the U.S. Soccer organization and to assist with the U19 Women’s National Team Camp,” Stoia said. “I’m looking forward to continuing the development of these select players with head coach Keri Sarver and her staff.

“This is an incredible environment to be a part of, and I am surrounded by a remarkable group of players and staff. I’m excited to be a part of this process and to help contribute in all stages throughout the week.”

All 48 players invited to the U18 and U19 camps are age-eligible for the 2018 FIFA U20 Women’s World Cup.

Stoia recently completed her 11th season as an assistant coach at WVU, where she helped coach Nikki Izzo-Brown lead the Mountaineers to their 18th straight NCAA Tournament bid and third consecutive third-round appearance.
