Baltimore Celtic Announces Hiring Of Christie Pearce Rampone As Girls Technical Director and Mental Conditioning Director
Baltimore Celtic is pleased to announce the hiring of our new Girls Technical Director and Mental Conditioning Director, Christie Pearce Rampone.
Christie is one of the most decorated female soccer players in history with the 2nd most international caps, 5 World Cups, 2 World Cup Championships, 3 Olympic Gold Medals, and former USWNT Captain and former pro player and pro coach.
“I have known Christie a few years and like many, have enjoyed watching her play at the highest levels. I reached out to share the news about our partnership with Coppermine and The Girls Academy and asked if she would be interested in helping us build the best curriculum for girls,” said Carl Delmont, Baltimore Celtic President.
Christie will attend Baltimore Celtic tryouts, work with our players on and off the field, help players with mental conditioning, and more. In addition, she will help to mentor some of our female coaches.
“When I acquired Celtic, it was primarily a boys club and under 20 teams but consistently winning National Championships. I wanted to offer Celtic to more families, so we expanded in other counties” adds Delmont. “I also wanted the girls to grow and to enjoy the success earned on the boys side. Adding Christie to our Club is a natural progression towards that goal.”
Pearce Rampone was the captain of the U.S. WNT during two gold medal runs and one FIFA Women’s World Cup title. She played in 19 total Women’s World Cup matches, tied for sixth best all-time, and played in 22 Olympic matches, more than any U.S. player. During her tenure with the U.S. WNT, Pearce Rampone captained the USA on 113 occasions.
Christie said she is “excited for this opportunity and looks forward to tryouts and meeting the coaches and players!”
