Katie Addison is in her first year as the Assistant Coach of UC Davis Aggies Women's Soccer. Coach Kaufman brought her on board because "Katie is an unbelievable role model for our players and is a living example of perseverance, character and hope." Addison began her collegiate career at Stanford, earning significant playing time in 2006 as a true freshman. She started 12 games that season as the Cardinal advanced to the NCAA Tournament. Severe knee injuries prevented her from playing the next two seasons but she remained a part of the program. After receiving her undergraduate degree at Stanford, Addison conducted behavioral science research and coached locally before moving to Tallahassee, FL for graduate school. She transferred to Florida State for the 2011 season and found immediate success with the Seminoles. She picked up four assists-two of them game winners-and played in all 25 games as Florida State won 18 and advanced to the College Cup. At Davis, Addison assists the Aggie soccer program in conditioning, training sessions, game management and academic affairs.
Twila Kaufman is in her first year as the Head Coach of UC Davis Aggies Women's Soccer. Prior to that she was associate head coach for the Pepperdine Waves Women's Soccer team that advanced to four NCAA Tournaments including a Sweet 16 appearance during her 10-year tenure. She was also head coach of the Los Angeles Legends women's soccer team and was a team captain during her four-year career as a starter at the University of Arizona. According to the Aggies' website, Kaufman "was integral in all areas of the Waves' program, including practice planning, academics, conditioning and game management. She also served as recruiting coordinator, annually bringing freshman classes that were nationally ranked by Soccer Buzz. Kaufman is known for recruiting balanced classes that feature highly touted players as well as hidden gems."
