B.S. Biology, Central Washington University
Head Coach Matt Mills returns to CBC for his 11th season as the Head Women's Soccer Coach. In 2008, Mills led the Hawks' women's soccer program to an NWAACC Championship and was named the NWAACC Coach of the Year. In 2009, Mills again led his squad back to the championship game where the Hawks finished as runners-up after another successful campaign.
An Eastern Washington native, Mills attended Central Washington University where he graduated with a B.S. in Biology and a Chemistry minor. His last year of college was spent abroad in England where he played for the University of Hull in East Yorkshire. With 13 years of coaching experience at the club and high school level, Mills came to the CBC program in 2002 as the men's assistant coach. In 2003, Mills took over the women's program after serving one season with the men. He holds a National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) National Diploma.
Mills looks to recruit local talent stating, "The Tri-Cities and the Northwest is filled with quality high school programs and talented young ladies willing to compete at the college level. For me, going into my 11th season as the women's soccer coach at Columbia Basin it is to provide a structured, exciting program that affords ladies around the Northwest the best opportunity to achieve their educational and soccer goals. The Northwest is full of soccer talent, so to develop a program that can showcase future university players and fulfill ladies' playing ambitions is my aspiration."
Coach Wade returns for his ninth season as an assistant coach, working primarily with goal keepers.

Wade holds a U.S. Soccer Federation National D License. He looks forward to maintaining CBC as the premier program for soccer and goalie training.
