The B09 Orange team is completing its 4th full year of competition. The team is coached by Katie Manly (Head Coach) and James Terris (Assistant Coach). The B09 Orange players finished the fall season as Champs of the Warren County Cincy Challenge and are looking forward to an exciting spring season.
Head Coach: Katie Manly
Katie grew up in the Boston area playing club and on the MA state ODP team. She then went on to play D1 soccer at Miami University, co-captaining the team her last two years.
Katie has been coaching for over 10 years at different age levels. She started her coaching career in college, coaching soccer camps in the summer back East. She also coached youth league teams at Miami University in the off season. While teaching in the Wyoming school system, she coached four seasons at the high school level, helping guide the 2002 girls’ soccer team to the state finals. At the same time she had her first stint coaching at the club level in the Cincinnati Classics club system.
In 2016, after taking a break to raise her four kids to be fairly self-sufficient, she got back into coaching in the Loveland Storm system, training 2005, 2008 and 2010 girls’ teams. In 2019 Katie began coaching the boys 2007 team as the assistant coach, and is now also the head coach for the boys 2009 team.
Katie is a big proponent of free play and pick-up games, and can be found playing soccer with her family most sunny days. She is also a big fan of Storm’s philosophy of having fun, working hard and serving others.
Assistant Coach: James Terris
