About Ashley Cabral

Background:

Ashley is originally from Connecticut, where she was a 5 sport student-athlete at West Haven High School (Soccer, Basketball, Ice Hockey, Softball, Track & Field), who graduated with honors. She attended Greensboro College where she was a 4-year starter of the Women’s Soccer Team, captain her senior year, and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2018. Her senior year, she was second in the nation for goals and third for points, setting a Greensboro College single-season record for most goals, points, and game-winning goals, with 26 goals scored, 57 total points, and 6 game-winning goals in 19 games. She ended her career with 109 points (47 goals, 15 assists), which places her second all-time in the school’s record book. After several years of playing competitively (and non-competitively) as an adult, plus numerous injuries and a couple of surgeries, she now focuses her time on coaching and mentoring youth players.

Coaching Style:

Ashley is known for her enthusiasm as a “teacher,” technical training, and passion for soccer. Her philosophy is to develop all-around players and improve their individual technical, physical, and mental skills. She places high importance on developing player confidence, creativity, and vision. She is committed to her guiding principles: Attitude, Commitment, Effort, Sportsmanship. She uses a positive and motivational approach to coaching. Ashley is a very honest and direct coach, who will always tell you when you’re doing well and push you to consistently perform your very best. She will also help you acknowledge what needs to improve, then take the time to explain how to get better. Ashley incorporates different methods of teaching and never likes to run the same practice twice!
