10A Head Coach
The Lady Ducks are so proud to welcome back one of our top development coaches and former Chinese Olympian, Coach Vicky, to the LD program. As our ADM 10u coordinator and 10A team head coach, Vicky will bring player development at this level to the highest level. Vicky came onto the scene as a key defenseman for Team China, battling Team USA’s Cammi Granato in front of the net on many occasions. Vicky began with the Lady Ducks in the early 2000s after retiring from Team China in 2001, after the World Championships and moving to California. Vicky was an integral part of our player development from 2002-2007, culminating as an assistant coach on the National Championship 12AAA Lady Ducks team.
Vicky continued with the Lady Ducks through 16aaa level, after which she began a hiatus after marrying her husband, Juan and starting a family. Vicky will raise the bar at the 10u age level, to introduce training and development of fundamentals and create an environment where players learn to push themselves. We are very excited to have Coach Vicky back with the LD and look forward to growth and success at this level!
