After a very successful 2010 campaign, UNLV Women's Soccer under the leadership of Head Coach Jennifer Klein is busy preparing for the fall season, which is just a few months away!

Klein, the youngest Head Coach in all of Division I Intercollegiate athletics, guided the team to its fastest start in history last season and garnered many notable achievements. The Rebels were 8-3 against non-conference foes with quality wins against Oregon, Colorado, and UC Riverside.

Additionally, the team performed admirably in the postseason Mountain West Tournament defeating rival Utah and battling NCAA tourney participant New Mexico in an epic double-overtime contest.

It should also be noted the UNLV Rebels received an NSCAA Team Academic Award, as 21 student-athletes were recognized for having a semester GPA of 3.0 or better, further emphasizing the importance of academic as well as athletic excellence.

One of the great aspects of UNLV's program is their connection with the community, and the opportunity for youngsters to be a part of a their great organization. At one time, all the ladies on the UNLV roster were aspiring young players just like you, so here's a great chance to interact with an outstanding coaching staff that truly cares.

Coach Klein and Men's Head Coach Rich Ryerson as well as their coaching staffs, will join forces for the 2011 Rebels Soccer Camps. Kids 5-13 are encouraged to participate. In addition to having fun and getting some great soccer instruction that will include basic fundamentals all the way up to skill-specific coaching and techniques, it's a fantastic opportunity to be a part of a nationally recognized program.
