Vranis, Pam
Pam attended Winston Churchill High School where she was honored with an All-American title her senior year.  She was a 4-year starting center midfielder for the ’92 Maryland ODP team which was twice ranked 3rd nationally and titled 3x regional champions.  Pam grew up playing for the Bethesda Soccer Club from which she was recruited to play for the Johns Hopkins University.  At Hopkins, Pam had the honor of being a 3x NCAA Elite 8 finalist and a captain during her sophomore, junior and senior years.  During the college off-season, she played with the local WPSL teams Maryland Pride and then with the Chesapeake Charge.  She feels fortunate for the opportunities soccer gave her to travel internationally to Brazil, Morocco, Spain and Portugal to compete in games, learn about the cultures and experience the varying playing styles of other countries.

While currently residing in Baltimore to attend dental school, Pam decided to coach in parallel.  During the spring 2017 season, Pam became the assistant coach for the U11 and U17 Pipeline Red girl teams.  Pam has assisted in coaching teams in the past and has individually trained young players since high school.  Her passion for soccer and its team aspect shapes her coaching style, and she hopes to continue learning and sharing the game with the next generation.
