Meet Wildcats Director of Coaching Lisa Pittaro

By Michele Angermiller

At the age of 11, Lisa Gmitter Pittaro  played her very first soccer game – and scored the first of many goals in her storied career.

Pittaro remembers it well. The game was at Nottingham High School, her coach was “Mrs. Abbott,” and she shared the field with her sister and best friend.

“I believe I scored three goals my very first game,” she remembers. “I knew soccer was the sport for me. It became my life, love and greatest passion in life from that day on.”

That passion drove Pittaro to glory as a member of the US National Team where she played with Michelle Akers, Mia Hamm, Kristine Lilly and Brandi Chastain.

As one of New Jersey’s all-time leading scorers with 177 career goals at Steinert High School, Lisa’s name shines brightly in the Steinert Hall of Fame as well as the Mercer County Soccer Hall of Fame.

Her collegiate career was equally impressive. During her four year tenure at George Mason University, she led her school to the 1985 NCAA championship. That same year, she was named Collegiate Player of the Year.

Handpicked as one of the top 11 New Jersey high school female soccer players in the history of New Jersey girls soccer by the Star-Ledger, she rose to prominence with the honor of being recognized as one of the top 11 women's collegiate players of all time at the 2006 NCAA Womens' Soccer Championships.

In August 2007, she participated in the US Soccer Hall of Fame ceremonies when Julie Foudy and Mia Hamm become the first women inducted into the hall.

Pittaro brings that competitive spirit leading the youth of tomorrow as the Hamilton Wildcats Director of coaching. She patterns her coaching style after her “first female role model,” Geri Kurlander, who she said “made a very big impact in my life.”

“What I bring to the Wildcats is my passion to give back all my playing, coaching experience and knowledge of the game to all the young girls in Hamilton,” she said. “I want to inspire them that if they have a dream the opportunity is there for them.”

She credits the club’s “great training program” and “excellent coaching staff” and executive board, as well as President Tom Slater, for making Hamilton “one of the top clubs in the Central / South Jersey.”

“I believe our club in the next few years to be one of the top soccer clubs in the State of NJ,” she said. “We have programs for all levels and will continue to strive to develop top, players at all levels and top teams at all levels. We will be a dynasty.”

Hamilton Girls Soccer Club announces affiliation with NJ Rush

NJ Rush welcomes the Hamilton Girls Soccer Club and Hamilton Wildcats FC to our NJ Rush Family.

Following the lead of Rush International, NJ Rush has a goal of spreading the “Rush Way” philosophy of coaching and training throughout New Jersey through key affiliations throughout the State. 

“New Jersey is a hotbed for soccer on the East Coast and we want New Jersey Rush to be the epicenter for soccer development in the State.  We believe strongly in the Rush Way training and coaching methodologies and we feel that the best way to help players reach their full potential is to introduce them to the highest level of training and development at the earliest ages,” says Sandeep Mehtani, Executive Director of New Jersey Rush.

New Jersey Rush is taking a true grassroots approach to influencing player development.

The traditional “Academy” model employed by the majority of premier clubs in New Jersey fails to address the fundamental principles of youth development.  In the traditional academy model, players come up through the township/local club and then are recruited to “advance” and join the “Academy” when they are old enough (typically 10-11 years old.)  Under this model, only a select few players are impacted by the Academy level of training and development.

“Our focus is different,” says Sandeep Mehtani, “cognitive and physical development together are happening rapidly at ages 5 through 8.  Kids at these ages are like sponges, they absorb everything.  Unfortunately, most Academy programs ignore these ages.  We aim to change that!  By affiliating directly with select local clubs in various regions of the State, we can influence player development and education on a grassroots level at much younger ages and continue that advanced development progression through the formative years.  This is why affiliating with Hamilton Girls Soccer Club and Hamilton Wildcats was a top priority for us.”

“Hamilton Girls Soccer Club is pleased to enter this partnership with NJ Rush as it will enhance our already comprehensive soccer program,” said Tom Slater, Hamilton Girls Soccer Club president. “This partnership will allow us to offer a well-rounded robust player development system for our entry level recreation player to our highest level of competitive player and everyone in between.”
 
“As the club enters its 41st year and the Hamilton Wildcats enter their 10th year of existence, we are proud our program that has resulted in dozens of high school players, state level and regional level players and our first State Cup championship. This partnership with NJ Rush will make our club the premier girls soccer club in Central Jersey.”
 
Ron Celestin, Assistant Women’s Coach at Princeton University, has been named Technical Director of New Jersey Rush Hamilton.  Lisa Gmitter-Pittaro, former US Women’s National Team player, has been named as the Director of Coaching for New Jersey Rush Hamilton.
 
 “I am so happy to have the Hamilton Girls Soccer Club and the Hamilton Wildcats FC join the New Jersey Rush family.  With a great centralized location, and with Ron Celestin and Lisa Pittaro leading the way, Hamilton Girls Soccer Club will be a fantastic hub for our New Jersey Rush girls soccer program in Central New Jersey,” said Greg Wiesmore, President of New Jersey Rush.
