THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT OF OUR ATHLETIC PROGRAM.
Prospective Student-Athletes and Parents,
Westmont Women’s Soccer is proud to host Prospect Camps for potential high school or college transfer student-athletes. These camps are designed to integrate instruction, evaluation and live game competition while exposing prospective student athletes to the Westmont College community.
Attending camp will provide prospective student-athletes with the opportunity to display their skills in front of our entire coaching staff, meet and play alongside some of our current players, tour Westmont’s beautiful campus, and leave with more knowledge about Westmont’s athletic and academic programs. Additionally, overnight camps will allow student athletes to stay in the dorms for an even further experience.
Our goal is to identify talent, provide a competitive and enjoyable playing atmosphere, and supply players with tools to improve their overall game. We look forward to getting to know you through this process.

Jenny Jaggard, Head Coach
Westmont has named Jenny Jaggard as the next head coach of the Westmont women's soccer program. She has served for the past five years as an assistant coach at Chico State.
"From a large field of applicants, Jenny rose to the top for several reasons," said Athletic Director Dave Odell. "I was drawn to her experience with winning programs. Both as a championship high school coach and as a collegiate assistant at Chico State. In particular, she has had the opportunity to work with legendary coach Kim Sutton at Chico State. That went a long way with me.
"Jenny's commitment and experience leading student-athletes as they face the bigger questions of life is also an important factor in her selection. Her interest in academia will help her undertand our academic rigor and how athletic participation fits into the whole educational experience of our students."
Jaggard holds a Master of Science in sport and recreation science from Ohio University and a Bachelor of Arts in biblical studies from Southwest Baptist University. Her coaching experience includes serving as the girls' soccer head coach at Douglas High School in Minden, Nevada.
"I am very excited to partner with Westmont College in its mission to provide the highest quality, Christian, liberal arts education possible to my student-athletes," said Jaggard. "Westmont's values, beliefs and educational philosophy are in perfect alignment with my personal life mission.
"I believe that my faith and background in biblical studies, coupled with my coaching education and experience, will allow me to thrive and make a positive impact on the lives of others. I view coaching soccer as a vehicle for teaching and preparing student-athletes for life and helping them to grow into their potential.
"My core team values are family, integrity, teamwork, hard work, enthusiasm, leadership, accountability, commitment to growth, respect and service to others. As a coach, I would describe myself as positive, demanding, instructive, encouraging, competitive and passionate about the game and people."
Jaggard becomes the women's soccer program's 12th head coach as it heads into its 38th season. She will be taking over a program that has produced five NAIA national championships, nine Golden State Athletic Conference championships and 55 NAIA All-Americans.

Are all camps located on the Westmont Campus?
Yes! All camps are on the Westmont Campus and will utilize both Lovik and Thorrington fields. Single Day Camps may only be on one field.
What happens if my child is injured or sick during camp?
Qualified trainers will be on duty for the duration of all camps to care for minor injuries and illness. Parents or guardians will be contacted immediately if there is a serious injury or a child needs to leave camp early for a medical reason. Please make a notation on the application form if there is any medical condition we should be aware of in advance of the camper¹s attendance to our soccer academies. Our athletic trainer will be available for questions on the first day of each camp and throughout the week.
What happens if my child is sick or injured and cannot attend camp? Do I get a cash refund?
Cancellations must be requested in writing in order to potentially receive a refund. Your email request must be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org. There will be no refunds allowed within 6 weeks of the event.
