Coaching Staff

Kelsey Kearney
Assistant Coach

Kelsey Kearney enters her third season as an assistant women’s soccer coach at VCU.

Since joining the Rams, VCU has become one of the best defensive units in the Atlantic 10. For four-consecutive years, the Black & Gold have earned a trip to the conference tournament.

In 2014, the Rams posted a 0.47 GAA in conference play, which was second-best in the league. Kearney coached goalkeeper Emma Kruse to five consecutive shutouts. The junior had ten shutouts overall, which led the A10. Kruse earned All-Atlantic 10 Second Team honors for the second straight year.

During her first year, the Black & Gold posted a league-best 0.93 GAA in conference play.

The Durham, N.C. native joined the Black & Gold after a stellar four-year playing career at Southern Conference powerhouse UNC Greensboro.

After graduating Summa Cum Laude from UNCG in May, Kearney spent the 2012 season at Gardner-Webb University as the graduate assistant for the women’s soccer team. During her time there, she worked primarily with the goalkeepers along with recruiting, day to day operations and travel.

Kearney was a four-year varsity letter winner for the Spartans and a two-time team captain. She led UNCG to three straight regular season SoCon Championships, an NCAA Tournament appearance and a SoCon Tournament Championship.

Kearney finished her career as arguably the best keeper in UNCG history. She graduated as the Spartans’ all-time leader in career goals against average, shutouts and minutes played. She turned in three of the top four single-season GAAs in school history. Kearney matched the single season school record with 12 shutouts in 2010, when she helped the Spartans to a top-10 national ranking. She earned all-region honors and was a third-team NSCAA Scholar All-American. In 2011 Kearney was nominated for the Lowes Senior Class award as well as a recipient of the Southern Conference Coleman Lew Leadership Award.

While at Gardner-Webb University, Kearney coached the goalkeepers for the Greater Cleveland County Soccer Association. She has continued her involvement with youth soccer as a staff member for the North Carolina ODP 01 girl’s team.
