Jen Zelinski Moore brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the Cochise College soccer program. Better known as Z, Moore grew up in the greater Salt Lake City and Atlanta areas where she fell in love with soccer at the age of nine. After a successful high school career, where she helped lead her team to the state finals in both her junior and senior years, Moore continued her career on scholarship at Fort Lewis College in Durango, Colorado. As a Skyhawk, she started all four years as a center back, captained her team as a junior and a senior, and was voted MVP as a sophomore.
Moore’s competitive spirit, combined with her passion for the game, has kept her regularly involved in the sport. Before moving into coaching, she played semi-professional soccer with the Albuquerque Asylum in 2007. She still competes in both indoor and outdoor adult leagues and stays involved with the game at every opportunity.
Moore was the head girls soccer coach at Bayfield High School in Bayfield, Colorado for the last 12 years, where she immediately turned around the program into a consistent, perennial contender at the state level. She earned the Southwest Soccer Leagues Coach of the Year award on three separate occasions. Her overall coaching record at the high school level is 116-68-15. She was also an assistant boys soccer coach for three seasons and has coached club soccer for 21 years.
