More About Coach Mollie

I have been training youth soccer players for the past 10 years. I have worked with male and female athletes from age 5-20, all skill levels. I have worked individually with athletes in North Carolina and Massachusetts. I run youth camps for high school and middle school players and regularly guest coach at club team training sessions. I have experience coaching and playing all positions except goalkeeper.
I am also a physical therapist at Upright Athlete and with a focus on injury prevention and rehabilitation.

Professional soccer player for the Boston Breakers in the NWSL (2014-2016). I also played professionally in the Champions League for Apollon FC ladies. I graduated from Duke University in 2014 where I was a four year starter and helped to lead the team to the NCAA finals and 3 elite eights. I have been a member of the US youth national team system since U14 and won U20 FIFA Women's World Cup in 2012 (also participated in U20 World Cup in 2010). I won National Gatorade Player of the Year in 2010.

I currently play left back but I have professional and collegiate experience at forward, midfield and defense.

I typically run hour long individual or small group sessions that are specifically catered to each client. The sessions begin with an agility warmup (agility ladder, rings, hurdles, etc). Then we typically build into individual technical work and ball skills. Agility and technical work are something that athletes of all levels should continually work on (we do everyday in professional practice). The rest of the session I focus on one or two aspects of the game (shooting, passing, first touch, long balls, defending, decision making etc) that the client(s) wants to improve on. I focus on proper form, decision making, speed of play and getting repetitions. I also give the clients drills to work on at home. I actively participate in the sessions demoing techniques, acting as an opponent, playing balls, and blocking shots.

Client Reviews

Mollie has worked with my daughter for two sessions and we couldn’t be happier. She was able to identify my daughter’s strengths and areas for improvement through well-designed drills and engagement. Mollie’s skills, experience, and professionalism have made such a difference for my daughter.

We had our first session and Coach Mollie yesterday. My son loves her already. He's 10 and was nervous; but she immediately got him comfortable. What I hoped for with private training was not just someone standing there pointing out mistakes; but the patience to give the individual attention needed to make corrections. And someone to actually play against him and physically challenge him to improve outside of team practices. Over time he developed some habits that needed changing (though we didn't know it at the time). She's already begun to tweak his footwork and he is gaining confidence in his left foot. We are looking forward to continuing to work with her.

Mollie has been great with my daughter. She's a very patient and thorough instructor, and very responsive in her communications.

Coach Mollie provided my daughter with a great session. She was able to share some drills for my daughter to work on at home and offered some excellent technical instruction.

Coach Mollie is the best coach! My son learned so much from the coaching session and he was able to apply them right away in team practices and games. Thank you Coach Mollie!

Absolutely fantastic first session with Mollie. As we anticipated after reading the previous reviews, she was very engaging and my daughter immediately clicked with her and responded to her style- jumping in and doing drills with her! As soon as the session was over there was a huge smile on my daughters face as she told me she wanted Mollie to be her coach - DAILY! I highly recommend Mollie if you are looking for that professional soccer player who really motivates and inspires. We are looking forward to a long relationship!

Mollie is an incredible coach. She is focused, smart and an incredible talent. My 12 year old has made tremendous strides in just 5 lessons. Mollie was able to figure out specific strengthens and weaknesses.

Great first meeting. I have already scheduled 5 more training sessions!

Mollie is an absolutely wonderful coach! I see so much improvement in my daughter’s soccer skills after only a handful of sessions. My daughter describes her experiences with Mollie as fun!

Our 15 year old daughter has been working with Mollie for about a year now. She looks forward to sessions with Mollie each week! She respects Mollie’s opinion and advice. She is more motivated outside of practice and has more confidence because of Mollie. Mollie coaches with a lot of positive support, emphasizing the progress made, with a “show you more than lecture you” process about where she needs to be working harder. Mollie provides a prompt written report of the training session and what to work on between sessions. Since working with Mollie, my daughter was named Rookie of the Year for her Varsity High School Team. She was voted All Conference and All Region. She moved up a team level in the Classic League after Tryouts in May. Several people have commented to me that they can see a distinct improvement in her performance over the last year. Since she started training with Mollie, multiple aspects of her game have improved! I wish every young player had the financial means to have the support of an expert and role model like Mollie to guide them through their sporting careers. Our family is so thankful for Mollie!!!

Coach Mollie was great with my 12 yo daughter who loved her! Mollie really focused on my daughter’s weaknesses and had specific recommendations, not provided by team coaches, changes only a one on one coach provides. For a first time session I was extremely impressed and look forward to seeing my daughter’s further development under Coach Mollie’s training

We just had our first session with Coach Mollie and our daughter loved it. She explained the drills in such a way that she was able to pick them up quickly. She showed how drills and moves can be practiced at home and applied in game situations. She was a professional, positive, and motivating. We will be booking more sessions with her.

Coach Mollie is the smartest investment we have made for our son. We could already see change after only the first two sessions, he was a very different player. He has 6 lessons under his belt and we will continue to work with Mollie for as long as she will let us :) We wish we found and booked with Mollie years ago! We have worked with other coaches from other countries for 2 years and nothing compares (not even close) to how Mollie reaches the student. All positive reinforcement! Her 1 hour lessons are packed full of activity and teaching how/when to apply, etc. I feel that our son gets more out of 1 hour of Mollie's training than he had ever gotten combining 2-3 hours of other coaches. Mollie is very active throughout the entire lesson. She is very thorough and easily understood in explaining moves/methods, plus she helps the student feel accomplished and proud of themselves. Mollie will also send you a full detailed summary of every lesson. Perfect for homework and for parents to have a full grasp of the training accomplished.

Our son is having fun on the game field and scoring goals, (...AND as a side note, school has also improved!). He is a happier person. We are so very grateful to have found Mollie!

We had our first session with Mollie and it was just what my daughter needed. What she liked most besides all of the drills is how Mollie explained how each drill applied to a real game situation and why the drill will help her play. We are already booking more sessions with her. Great trainer!

Mollie had great energy, connected with the kids instantly, awesome drills and motivated the kids. They didn’t want the session to end. We have already booked more sessions for our 2 kids.

Our daughter really enjoyed training with Coach Mollie. She is professional, but approachable and focused on what the player feels they need to work on. Definitely recommend working with her and we will continue to as well!

I am so glad that my parents found Ms. Mollie Pathman to help prepare me for College ID Camps. They did a lot of research and found her credentials to be very impressive, I thought so too. I have been playing soccer since 2nd grade and Coach Mollie is by far the most experienced, friendly, caring, knowledgeable coach that I have had the honor to work with.
She identified my strengths and weaknesses and came up with a plan of development to help improve my game play quickly and efficiently. My individual plan was developed and sent to me via email later that day. Each time we practiced, Coach Mollie didn’t just instruct, she demonstrated her knowledge by joining in and working with me on a level that other coaches could not. She has a warm inviting personality that made me enjoy training sessions, and I always looked forward to the challenge.
Training doesn’t end there. She provided me with lots of material to work on so that I can improve my college prospects.
So, if you are looking for a trainer with a great personality, excellent knowledge and experience of the game and a desire to improve a players’ ability, Coach Mollie is by far the best choice.

We had our first session with Mollie, and Mollie had my daughter doing drills she has had little to no experience with. I can tell after the first session, that is money well spent. My daughter really enjoyed her session with Mollie, and that is a plus too. Looking forward to further sessions.

Coach Mollie is great. My son, Josh, had first session last week from her. During his practice at home and a field after the lesson, I could tell that his foot skill and motivation were significantly improved. Coach Mollie seems very patient, analytic, focused, and motivated. Very happy to have her as Josh's coach.

Mollie is an amazing coach! She breaks things down to my daughter really well and I can see the improvement in her, just watching her it’s clearly evident that Mollie is a season coach.

Excellent tailored instruction to meet my young player's needs.

Coach Mollie has been great! We started of
booking one session, and booked another set of sessions immediately after. She evaluates the player and works on what she thinks needs improvement, including what the player would like to work on. After only a few sessions my foot skills and fluency with the ball have improved dramatically. Almost everything Coach Mollie gives the player, can be taken home and worked on, not matter what equipment you have. I highly recommend booking a session with Coach Mollie if you are wanting to improve as a player.

Coach Mollie is a great trainer! My 13 yr. old daughter enjoyed learning from Coach Mollie. She taught my daughter so much. Coach Mollie is seems to enjoy interacting with children and teaching them. She will push your child to do things they think they can't do, because she believes in them and wants them to believe in themselves.
As a parent, she was wonderful to work with as well.
Thank you!

Coach Mollie is outstanding. My daughter absolutely loved her session. Can’t wait for her next one!!

Mollie is 5 stars! She worked with my 10yr old Daughter, who loved the session! She is exactly what we were looking for to work on our Daughter's soccer skills and confidence. Molly is knowledgeable, reliable and incredibly easy to reach and communicate with. This has been a great experience and I recommend her highly.

Coach Molly is no non-sense and results focused. She values our time and demands effort.

Coach Mollie has been excellent for my daughters. They get some much out of the time they spend with her, and we're looking forward to continuing with Mollie regularly.

Coach Mollie had three sessions with my daughter, and did a fantastic job on agility, technical ball skills and 1 on 1 tactics. Her practices were well thought out; and she coached my daughter very well through challenging drills. I have coached Teams for several years; and can say she is one of the best individual coaches I have ever seen.

Coach Mollie was a great coach. My daughter immensely liked her training session. She was totally dedicated towards teaching the soccer skills to my daughter. She is also great in responding to emails with regards to appointment scheduling which makes us very much at ease. Since we travel almost sixty plus miles one way for her training session we feel every minute is very much worth the time and more. I feel totally blessed and privileged to have her as a soccer coach for my daughter.

Coach Mollie is amazing with my eight year old daughter. My daughter looks forward to her lessons and her confidence has significantly improved even after only 2 lessons. She looks forward to her lessons and is excited about what she has learned. We would highly recommend coach Mollie and look forward to many more lessons!

Jack really enjoyed working with Molly- she identified areas for improvement and offered techniques/drills he could do to continue his development. Jack is excited about working with Molly again.

Mollie is a fantastic coach. Her approach with our daughter was fantastic - small exercises that combine into larger ones which combine into game scenarios. Our daughter was engaged the entire time, and loved the session, saying "for sure" she wanted to work a lot more with Mollie.

Coach Mollie was professional, knowledgable, helpful, and positive. Great session to help my daughter refine her skills. We will be booking more time with Coach Mollie.

Mollie has been a great coach for my daughter. My daughter always looked forward to each session and has come away feeling more confident with the ball. Mollie was very professional and always on time and very flexible with her time.

Coach Mollie is GREAT! She has helped my daughter to learn new playing techniques and skills that she wouldn't have gotten anywhere else. I asked my daughter how she felt after the first session with Mollie, and she told me that she learned more in one hour than in all the time she has played club soccer. The one on one sessions allow Coach Mollie to address specific skills and weaknesses for each player. Mollie is just what my daughter needed to get to the next level of play!

Mollie is the perfect combination of a great coach with professional level skills. She's been a huge help to my daughter!

Mollie is amazing. Our 9 year old daughter was very apprehensive about meeting and working out with Mollie to learn new soccer skills and to work on her weaknesses. Mollie put our daughter at ease within 10 seconds. She spent a long while on foot skills and other aspects of soccer training. We wanted to focus on shooting skills and Mollie showed us somethings that we didn't even know or haven't seen watching soccer games. Mollie even spent several minutes after practice to answer all of our questions and to show us what to work on to improve and become a better soccer player. Our daughter asked the very morning after the workout session if she could do it again. I answered absolutely!!!

My daughter really enjoyed her training sessions with coach Mollie. Mollie was very professional and got right to work with her. She was able to assess her technical skills and showed her not only what she needed to improve upon but also how to improve. She also sent a detailed email which explained all they worked on in the sessions. It was great to get that feedback. I would recommend coach Mollie to anyone who wants to improve their game!

Coach Mollie is wonderful. After only the first session with Mollie my daughter started to play with more confidence on the field. I would highly recommend her to other players.

During my daughter's first session, it was apparent that Mollie assessed her skill level and then developed a plan to address and focus on her needs. At the end, my daughter felt very confident and was eager to work with Mollie again, the following week. The experience exceeded our expectations.

Mollie was invited to work with a group of young children who had never played soccer. She immediately bonded with the group and within a short period of time had the children developing skills essential for soccer. Parents and children all raved about Mollie's demeanor and skills. We look forward to having her work with our group again.

Mollie was great and really taught my daughter skills that she can now use in play.

Coach Mollie Was excellent.

Appreciate Mollie's willingness to schedule training sessions for our daughter. Mollie's sessions were balanced, efficient, and tailored to the skills our daughter wanted to polish. Our daughter thought Mollie was nice and that the sessions definitely helped improve her technique. Highly recommend Mollie to other players.

Great session!

Mollie coached 13 players from my daughter's U 13 Triangle United team. She did large group sessions and sessions with 3 to 5 players. Mollie exceeded our expectations. That is an understatement ! The parents loved her and were so impressed by her professionalism & skills. The girls are forever impacted. Their ball skill level and knowledge of the game has improved tremendously. Molly was always prompt we could always count on her. She was very organized and kept the practice moving with excellent drills that the girls absolutely loved! We all wish that we could have Mollie as our full-time coach because Triangle United /challenge and rainbow do not offer very good coaching. With the league they improved very slowly and minimally. But with Mollie there improvements were very noticeable and the learning curve was quicker. Her methods are very precise and technical. Mollie has become an inspiration for all of these girls and they all feel more positive & confident going into their next season. Mollie is a professional soccer player so we won't be able to continue our lessons with her when she is away competing. But all the parents are hopeful that we can continue through the year with Mollie ( when she's home ) even if it's just one time a month it's so worth it! Her Coaching is invaluable to us ! I am speaking for 13 sets of parents they were all blown away and very very happy ! Soccer needs more female coaches to inspire our daughters !!!! Molly is a perfect coach for both genders but if you have a daughter and really want to impact her life I would choose Mollie.

Coach Mollie was very professional and put my 12 yr boy at ease quickly. She put him through several drills to evaluate him on what he needs to work on during our first session. And she proceeded to work with him to improve those skills. After the session she gave him homework to work to improve those skills. She sent sent me detailed message on what she did and what he needed to do to at home with that drills that she sent him home with. I'm looking forward to more sessions with coach Mollie and what she can do to help my son be his best

We move around a lot as a military family, and our middle-school girls have played soccer in 4 states. They learned more in a couple sessions with Mollie than they have anywhere we've ever been. Mollie is a great coach for a few reasons: her significant on-field experience as a player; her amazing depth of knowledge about fundamentals, techniques, and drills; an instant ability to assess player strengths and weaknesses; and an impressive ability to translate her experience and knowledge to kids so they learn and grow as players. We're looking forward to the next sessions. Our kids had an awesome experience with Mollie---yours will too.

Coach Mollie has been a wonderful coach for my two daughters! She has given them many skill exercises they can easily practice at home. We are excited to continue working with her!

Coach Mollie has a very professional, yet caring attitude when coaching my daughter. The one hour sessions are efficiently run, incorporating numerous drills to improve my daughter's all around game. My daughter has responded very well to Coach Mollie and is very excited to have more training sessions in the future.

Coach Mollie is a fantastic coach and mentor. In only one session she has turned around my daughters drive and passion for soccer... She has re-energized her and she cannot wait to take what she has learned and use it in her game! Mollie is very knowledgeable and is a fantastic trainer!!!

Coach Mollie had been awesome. From the start, her communication and flexibility have been first rate. My 15 year old daughter has really enjoyed her sessions, and has come away with useful tips and suggestions she can use to transfer to her field play. We are excited to keep working with Coach Mollie!

We are thrilled we found Coach Mollie to work with our 10 year old son. In only two sessions she was able to give him multiple tips for him to work on and use in his games.

Mollie is friendly, engaging, and great with kids! We plan to continue working with Mollie and highly recommend her to other parents looking for a great coach.

Awesome experience. Coach Mollie was great. She had lots of great drills and worked on speed and agility too. We could see the results of the session on the field in our daughters quicker reaction to and creativity with the ball. Then there's the WOW factor, Coach Mollie has an impressive resume and is an active professional player. My daughter has made us promise to take her to see Coach Mollie play this spring. Can't wait for the next session.

Coach Mollie was an instant help to my son. He gained confidence immediately and picked up the fundamental drills quickly. Coach Mollie put him at ease right away and challenged him in a way that made him want to do more. She's great and is highly recommend.

Coach Mollie is an amazing coach and oroved to be a great resource for me this summer, while giving me tools I look forward to translating into my practices and games.

My 13 year old son loved his session with Coach Mollie. He was thrilled to tell me about the technical drills he did and how she helped him with his shooting on goal. Per his request we are attending the last Boston Breakers home game so he can cheer for Mollie! We've already bought more Coach Up sessions to continue working with her.

Coach Mollie is great with kids and put our daughter at ease immediately. She gave her just enough in the way of drills to help our daughter develop better ball control but didn't overwhelm her. We plan to buy more sessions with her this summer! We recommend her highly.
