KC Athletics is proud to announce the addition of former Mizzou standout Melanie Donaldson to its 2019-2020 coaching staff. Donaldson, who is originally from Florissant, MO, was named as All-SEC first team player while at Mizzou. “I am very excited about this opportunity to work with KC Athletics for the upcoming 2019/2020 season. Soccer has always been a passion of mine, and I am looking forward to developing my experience through coaching with some of the best!” she states.
KC Athletics identified a need to add high quality female coaches to its current coaching staff. “I think our club has a ton of outstanding coaches, but we simply do not have enough female coaches. The Midwest has been developing high level players for a long time. Many of those players are now at the age to become role models for young athletes,” said Club Executive Director Huw Williams.
Donaldson has been helping with the Futures and young player programs within the club for the past season but will be assigned a full time team for the fall 2019 season.
A full list of the 2019-2020 KC Athletics coaching assignments will be made available very soon.
