Contact Coach Estrada
Tina Estrada was promoted to full-time assistant coach in May of 2010 as DePaul upgraded both its women's and men's soccer coaching staffs.
In the summer of 2013, Estrada was chosen for the NSCAA's (National Soccer Coaches Association of America) first 30-Under-30 program as part of a nationally select group of young coaches who want to lead the way in developing soccer players and enhancing the game.
The 30-Under-30 program is a year-long education and mentorship opportunity for a select few up-and-comers who have made soccer coaching their career of choice. The program was created to support promising young coaches and foster their growth at a crucial point in their vocation.
Estrada had joined the DePaul women's soccer program in 2008 as a graduate assistant. She concluded her collegiate career in 2007 as a four-time All-West Coast Conference honoree at Santa Clara University where she played for now-DePaul head coach Erin Chastain who was an assistant coach with the Broncos.
The Fremont, Calif., native finished her career with 31 goals in four seasons while compiling 15 assists for 77 career points. She led the Broncos to four NCAA Tournament appearances and four West Coast Conference Championships.Estrada topped the Broncos in scoring as a sophomore and junior before a knee injury forced her to sit out a season. She came back in 2007 as a senior with 11 points on five goals and an assist. She was second on the team with 42 shots and third in goals and points.
Estrada graduated from Santa Clara with a Communications degree. In high school, she was named a Parade All-American in 2002 and 2003 and played for the U17 National Team prior to her collegiate career.
