Jones to lead youth soccer league

La Jolla Youth Soccer League has hired Kristin Jones as its new Director of Coaching for both its recreational and competitive programs.

A two-time national champion and All-American at UCSD, Jones has proven herself as a player and a coach over the last decade. After a year of working as director of the girls program for Impact, she has shown great potential in leading the league in a positive direction.

“Our community is so lucky to have Kristin as our new director of coaching. She is the perfect role model for our children. She has succeeded both academically and athletically at the college level.

“As our children have grown older, around 15 or 16, we have consistently lost players, and subsequently teams, at an age when players and their families are in need of guidance to apply to college and pick the right college that will allow them to continue to play soccer at the appropriate level. Jones has that ‘next level’ experience that will ultimately help our players achieve their soccer goals, whatever they may be,” said Fred Borrelli, president of La Jolla Youth Soccer League.

After 11 years with the Nomads Soccer Club as the assistant director of the girls program, Jones felt it was the right time to make the move. “This opportunity presented itself at the perfect time. I am excited to work with the youth teams and provide a good learning environment for the La Jolla soccer community,” she said.

In addition to her position with La Jolla Youth Soccer, Jones is in her ninth season as the head assistant coach for the UCSD Women’s Soccer program and the head coach of La Jolla High Girls Varsity Soccer. She’s been an integral part of both programs’ success, leading LJHS to four CIF finals in the past five years. This has also resulted in two CIF championships and two So Cal Regional Runner-up positions. Her UCSD Women’s team is ranked in the top 10 nationally, and fights for a national championship year after year.
