TOWSON, Md. – In an announcement made by Towson University director of athletics Tim Leonard on Wednesday, Katherine Vettori has been named as the next head coach for the women’s soccer program.

Vettori becomes the sixth head coach since the program was founded for the 1993 season.

“I would like to thank Tim Leonard and Tricia Turley Brandenburg for giving me this opportunity to be part of the Towson University athletics family,” said Vettori. “I am thrilled to lead the Towson women’s soccer program and work with such exceptional student-athletes. The future is very bright!”

“We are very excited to welcome Coach Vettori to Towson University to usher in a new era in women’s soccer,” Leonard said. “She brings strong credentials, on and off the field, to Towson and with her knowledge of local soccer clubs, it won’t take long for her to bring in quality student-athletes.”

Since 2014 Vettori has served as the director for the Vettori Elite Soccer Academy (VESA) in the Towson area. VESA provides individual training, small group training and team training for area clubs. VESA also handles college placement and manages camps, as well as winter leagues for regional youth teams.

Simultaneously, Vettori was the director of coaching and player development with Towson United Girls’ Soccer team. In a two-year span, the youth travel program has more than doubled from seven teams to 18. Towson United competes against other high-level clubs as a result of technical and tactical training methods. Several Towson United players have been enrolled in the Olympic Development Program (ODP) while attracting top players from the Greater Baltimore area.
