Camp Director Julie Woodward
Head Women's Soccer Coach 18 Seasons - Seattle U ‘93. "Every year, I look forward to our Nike Soccer Camps. We strive to make every week the greatest, so that our campers enjoy learning and competing, and are inspired to continue playing the beautiful game!"View Julie 's Bio ⟩
Julie Woodward has earned the respect of her peers with her style of coaching, which has led to 16 winning seasons. She finishes her 18th season at the helm of the Redhawk women's soccer program in 2014. With such an accomplished coaching resume, Woodward continues to establish herself as the winningest coach in SU women's soccer history with a 247-95-33 overall record (prior to the 2015 season)
Prior to the 2015 season, she was T38th on the winningest Division I head coaches list (by wins) and 22nd by winning percentage.
Woodward led the Redhawks to their second straight WAC Regular Season and Tournament titles in 2014, again defeating Kansas City for the championship and automatic berth to the NCAA Tournament. The team took their postseason success a step further with a 2-1 2OT victory at No. 23 Washington State in the First Round of the NCAA Tournament. Academically, Woodward helped lead the Redhawks to their fourth straight NSCAA Team Academic Award for 2013-14 (announced in November 2014). She also coached one of the program's most successful student-athletes in Stephanie Verdoia, who earned Senior CLASS Award and Capital One Academic All-America of the Year honors, among many others.
Our staff consists of outstanding collegiate coaches and student-athletes who are committed to providing the most fun and inspiring learning experience possible!
Seattle University's former two-time NAIA All-American soccer player came home to her alma mater as the head coach of the Redhawks women's soccer program over a decade ago. A native of Seattle, Woodward took over the program after serving three years as an assistant women's soccer coach at the University of Montana.
While the women's soccer program at Seattle University has always been a successful one, Woodward has clearly taken it to a new level in her time as the leader of the Redhawks. Not only has she compiled the program's all-time best coaching record, she has guided the Redhawks to the NAIA regional championship match in five straight seasons before making the move up to the NCAA Division II level.

Schreiner has helped veteran head coach Julie Woodward lead the Redhawks to five 12-win seasons in his past seven years including their highest Division I win total (17-3-2) in 2013. In 2011, his final year before promotion to associate head coach, Schreiner helped the Redhawks earn one of the biggest victories in program history, defeating then-No. 8 Portland. In 2013 and 2014, he was a key part of Seattle U’s undefeated conference season (2013) and first NCAA Division I Tournament appearance in program history (2013) as well as first DI tournament win (2014). He was a major contributor in the team’s transition to Division I and has been key in their success since the transition.
Prior to joining the SU women's soccer program, Schreiner spent two years as the assistant coach at Saint Bonaventure University.
Before going to Saint Bonaventure, Schreiner spent two years as an assistant coach at Gustavus Adolphus College, assisting with on-the-field training, organization of practice and game plans, strength training, recruiting and travel planning. He started his coaching career as an assistant at Carroll College in 2003.
Schreiner has also been an instructor at various soccer camps throughout the country, including the Region I Olympic Development Program camp in Providence, R.I., and the Texas A&M women's soccer camp in College Station, Tex. Originally from Indianapolis, Ind., he earned his bachelor's degree in psychology in 2003 from DePauw University, where he was a four-year letterwinner on the men's soccer team.

Highlight of the summer
Daughter had a blast at camp as she said Best Soccer Camp EVER! It was the highlight of her summer and wasn't ready to come home. Definitely will be back next year!
— Erica L., Parent 2016
Best in the country
This might be the best girls soccer camp in the country. The girls worked hard and had a ton of fun, real skills and the awesome feeling of working with professional people.
— Sarah P., Parent 2016
This is my daughter's highlight of summer! She got to have a college experience, hang with her friends, and learn how to improve her soccer skills and overall game. She came home tired, hoarse, and on "Cloud 9" from her experience!
— Ben B., Parent 2015
It was great that Julie was there and interacted with the kids, and that the staff included college soccer players. The facilities were unbeleivable and the instruction was top notch. My daughter came home more confident, and excited to continue working on her game.
— Jack M., Parent 2015
Pushed me to reach my goals
Everything about my experience was awesome, I even loved the food! I like that they made me set goals for myself, and pushed me to reach them. I really enjoyed applying what I learned earlier in the day during the nightly scrimmages. I hope to return next summer.
— Jared B., Camper 2015
My girls had a wonderful week at soccer camp. It exceeded my expectations and was very fun and engaging for them.
— Wes B., Parent 2015
Highly recommend this camp
I would highly recommend this camp for anyone. It gives you an idea of what the college level will be and you have an amazing time. Not only do you get an idea of what the level is but you also get an idea of what the coaches are like, and what the environment is like.
— Shannon N., Camper 2014
Coaches were great
Camp was great for our daughter, coaches were great, team players were very helpful in understanding the program, how the recruiting process worked.
— Bill C., Parent 2014
Taste of the college experience
It was great to bond with other girls who love the same thing I do. Getting a taste of the college experience. My daughter can't wait to go again next year.
— Lisa C., Parent 2014
Coaches push you hard
This camp is very well run and filled with great, experienced coaches that push you hard throughout the week and teach you a lot of things that you can use in the game. I highly recommend it.
— Melissa H., Camper 2014
Coaches are wonderful
Excellent camp! Coaches are wonderful and players will learn and have fun. I will definitely come back next year!
— Brett B., Camper 2014
Will absolutely be back
This was our daughter's first summer sports camp experience. I was very pleased with the tone of the sports camps and the positive reinforcement that the coaches gave. We will absolutely be back.
— Chuck C., Parent 2014
More attention to new attendees
it would be nice to see the commuters/newbies get a little extra attention at check in, it is hard to get past "everyone knows each other but me"
— Callie J., Camper 2016
Definitely signing up again
My son loved this camp, he learned a lot and had fun. He is excited to go see the women's Seattle Univeristy soccer team play this year. We will definitely sign up for this camp and a few other Nike camps next summer!
— Mary C., Parent 2016
coaches were outstanding
This was my 11 YO daughter's 1st overnight camp for more than 1 night. She loved it and can't wait to return. The coaches and everyone involved in the program were outstanding and my daughter learned many new soccer skills. Thank you for the perfect experience.
— Darrian C., Parent 2016
Needed more information on activities
Advance notice of schedules and overall camp organization. For example, upon registering I was sent the wrong camp information. One day of the camp the field was double-booked with the boys camp. The initial camp information led parents to believe the camp was full 4 day program when in reality the camp was 2 half days and 2 full days.
