Trinity hires new women’s soccer coach

July 8, 2013

Trinity Athletic Director Matt Koenigs is pleased to announce that Tim Colvin has been hired as the head women’s soccer coach for the Eagles.

Colvin is a Pacific Northwest native who has been involved with the game of soccer for over 40 years. Before coaching at Trinity, Colvin coached soccer at Everett Community College, where he was voted NWAAC coach of the year in 2007.

Colvin has also coached several high school programs in the area, including Liberty Bell High School, Lynnwood High School, Seattle Academy, Inglemoor High School and Lake Washington High School. Colvin currently serves as Athletic Director at Seattle Academy, where he also teaches fine arts.

“Tim comes to us with a long history as an area coach and athletics administrator, bringing more than 20 years of coaching experience with him to Trinity,” Koenigs said.

Colvin is the founder and director of Whidbey Soccer Academy’s Next Generation Camps, a program organized to promote soccer development for current select and club level players desiring a leap to premiere play. And from 1980 to 1993, he was assistant program director and coach for Northwest Soccer Camp. 

“While we’re excited to have found a very good coach, we’re even more excited because Tim is a great fit for us here at Trinity. He’s a man of strong faith who cares very much about his athletes, and that shows in the success he’s had as a coach.” Koenigs said.

Colvin holds a B.A. in Fine Arts from Seattle Pacific University and is a graduate of Edmonds High School, where he played on the varsity team. He played collegiate soccer at both Whitworth University and Seattle Pacific. He lives in Snohomish with his wife Rebecca and their two sons.

The college is fortunate to have found such a skilled and committed coach to lead its women’s soccer program into the future.
