N.C. - The Charlotte 49ers women's soccer team will take the field for seven
matches this spring, including three on-campus, as it begins preparations for
its first season of Conference USA in the fall.
"I'm excited for our team this coming spring," head coach John Cullen said. "First and foremost, it's a chance to get back on the field and start playing once again, which is always the exciting portion of the spring season. As a coaching staff, we are eager to watch the newly appointed captains develop their leadership skills on and off the field.
"We have two main focus points this spring. Those are looking to see the team play with a higher tempo and defend higher up the field. That will take a great deal of communication and understanding, and that will be the part of the spring season where we will be looking for progress from one game to another. It takes time to develop new principles and we will be looking to see improvement from game to game.
"We have a high volume of games, and in some cases back-to-back games, which certainly will test our fitness levels, too.
So, there are lots of areas to evaluate throughout the spring, but more importantly, the opportunity to get the players back on the field playing once again is the real highlight of any spring season."
