Coach Alice Fontana- Instructional Soccer League Director
Coach Alice has worked for Vetta Sports Soccerdome since 2013 and we are thrilled to have her join our Manchester team! Alice started playing soccer in 1st grade and she hasn't stopped. Some of her favorite soccer memories include- "Qualifying and competing in the NCAA division III women's soccer tournament 3 out of my 4 years of college- and my college team's soccer trip to England are memories that definitely top the list." Soccer is definitely Alice's passion, she's been playing since she was 7 years old and played through college. Outside of coaching at Vetta, she enjoys coaching her 2005 girls Lou Fusz team and playing in several adult leagues at Vetta. When asked who her favorite soccer player was, Alice says: "I am a die-hard USWNT fan. It's fun to follow all of those players, but Megan Rapinoe is my favorite. I love her play-making ability and creativity on the pitch. Off the field, she exudes positivity and seems to have such a fun personality. Tobin Heath, Lauren Holiday, and Ali Krieger are up there as well."
When asked why she coaches children, Alice says: “There is something so special about getting to pass your love of the game onto the next generation.”
