Jodie Snowbarger


Jodie Snowbarger grew up in year round competitive traveling sports. Immersed in United States Swimming for the age of 4, she began soccer at the age of 8 and was immediately hooked. By the time she was 15 she was playing year round club soccer, qualified for junior nationals in swimming, and was selected to play on an international travel soccer team who traveled one summer to play tournaments in Austria, Germany, and Denmark. Her love of both sports made it a tough choice when college came around, and family roots pulled deep. She teamed up with her sister, who also swam, and competed NCAA Division I swimming through college. After college she jumped immediately back into soccer and played adult league soccer in Arizona and California. Her lengthy and diverse athletic background supports her strong understanding of commitment, endurance, and resilience. It also provides her with a diverse insight into different coaching styles having played and swam under varying coaches. She is mindful of the individual and developmental stages teams take. She is happy to be a new and contributing member of Legacy 805 FC as a coach to our young developing teams.

Roni Hinson


Roni Hinson has played soccer for 13 years, seven of those years have been spent playing club soccer at different levels of play, all of which she has been able to learn and grow from and form not only into the player she is today but as well as a coach that has been in her sights since the beginning. Hinson’s primary position is goalkeeper. When you do not find Hinson playing soccer out on the field, you will find her playing indoor at Wall-2-Wall. Over the last 2 years Hinson has been doing personal soccer trainings and it has only validated the love for coaching. Hinson looks forward to the opportunity to coach at a higher level of play and continue to learn more from her fellow coaching staff.
