UHH selects Beddingfield as Women’s Soccer Coach

Unity Beddingfield

  Vulcan Press Release: University of Hawaii at Hilo Athletic Director Dexter Irvin today announced the selection of Unity Beddingfield as the women’s soccer coach, effective April 16, 2012.
 
Beddingfield takes over the UH Hilo program after a year as the assistant coach at San Bernardino Valley College where the team finished 15-6-3. Six months earlier she was an assistant coach of former UH Hilo and current California State University San Bernardino Head Coach Travis Clarke.
 
“She works very hard on-and-off the field, is a great leader and mentor to younger student athletes,” said Clarke. “She is a driven young woman and stepped up to any challenge I have seen in front of her as a player, student, person and coach.
 
“She will do very well in her new role.”
 
The Vulcans finished the 2011 season 5-9-2 overall and seventh in the Pacific West Conference at 3-7-2 with a roster that included two seniors, four juniors, six sophomores and 15 freshmen.
 
“This is the biggest step I’ve taken and a great opportunity in a great atmosphere,” said Beddingfield. “I’m hoping to bring a different dynamic and atmosphere to help the program grow.
 
“I feel like a kid in a candy store. I have so many aspirations for the girls that I’m really excited. And when I talk to them, they get excited. So I’m thinking I need to do everything that I can for them.”
 
Beddingfield, a 2011 graduate of CSU San Bernardino, has played soccer for over 21 years. She was a two-year starting forward for the Coyotes before joining the Claremont Stars of the Women’s Premier Soccer League. Beddingfield hoped to take her talents overseas before a career-ending injury derailed her efforts.
 
A year after graduating from high school, she started her coaching career by joining the Arroyo Valley High School coaching staff while also playing collegiate soccer. By 2007, she became the head coach.
 
Fitness remains a crucial point in her life. With her bachelors in Kinesiology and Exercise Science/Pedagogy, Beddingfield is a certified personal trainer.
