Head Coach Landon Moore

Landon Moore joined Coach O’Keeffe when she was named head coach in 2007. Moore graduated from Hampden-Sydney College, which he refers to as "a male version of Hollins." He contributed to one of the best four-year periods in H-SC’s soccer history, from 1999 to 2002, winning 49 games during that span. Moore was named to the All-ODAC Academic Team and was selected to participate in the college’s prestigious Society of '93 leadership program.

Moore has been involved with coaching soccer at all levels, beginning at Fuqua School in Farmville, Virginia, during his senior year of college. He has been a head coach in the Virginia Olympic Development Program, with Roanoke Star Soccer Club, and with Valley AFC Arsenal. He was director of Roanoke Star Academy during 2007-08. Moore holds licenses from the National Soccer Coaches Association of America and the United States Soccer Federation, the highest of which is the NSCAA Advanced National Diploma.

Moore engineered the growth of the soccer program at William Fleming High School. He transformed the program from one that had not won a single game in a five-year span into a program that won ten games and reached the quarterfinals of regional playoffs two years later. Under his leadership, the soccer program has grown from one coed team to four teams (JV and varsity teams for girls and boys). Moore credits the growth of soccer at the Roanoke City high school to diversity—he has coached players from more than 35 countries at Fleming.

Through his involvement with the soccer program at William Fleming, Moore formed the Star City Soccer Foundation in 2009. SCSF is a nonprofit organization that provides refugees and immigrants with opportunities in education, leadership, and assimilation. After-school programs, educational summer camps, and involvement with local soccer organizations are all key components to the SCSF mission.

In April 2014, Moore was one of seven winners from around the country of the 2014 National Student-Athlete Day Giant Steps Award, presented by the National Consortium for Academics and Sports (NCAS). The Giant Steps Award is given to individuals who have overcome adversity while still succeeding in life, who use sport as a vehicle for positive social change, who break down barriers to provide opportunities for those who follow them, and who inspire people to do great things using the positive aspects of sport. The NCAS is recognizing Moore for his civic leadership and work with the Star City Soccer Foundation.

Moore is the director of the Carrie O’Keeffe Championship Soccer Camp, which got its start in summer 2010. The camp is named for O’Keeffe’s championship experiences at the youth, collegiate, and professional levels. COCSC features day camps for young local players and residential camps for players who are serious about improving their game.

Carrie Moore O'Keeffe

Assistant Coach Carrie Moore O’Keeffe

Coach Carrie Moore O'Keeffe came to Hollins from Washington, D.C., where she played professionally with the Washington Freedom as a defender for all three years of the WUSA’s existence. During that time, O’Keeffe’s primary responsibility was man marking the most dangerous attacker on the opposing team. Following Carrie’s second season, she was named a WUSA All-Star, playing with and against the best players in the world in the All-Star game. With teammates Mia Hamm and Abby Wambach, O'Keeffe played a vital role at center back on the Freedom team that won the 2003 WUSA Championship. Carrie played in every minute of every game that season.

On July 1, 2010, O'Keefe was named as one of five finalists for induction into the Washington Freedom's "Hall of Freedom." The Hall of Freedom is the highest honor that the Washington Freedom women's professional soccer club bestows upon its former players and personnel, with membership extended in recognition of exceptional achievements, dedication and service to the club.

Before turning pro, O'Keeffe starred at the College of William and Mary as a central midfielder from 1996-1999. During her collegiate career she led the Tribe to four straight conference championships while earning all conference awards in all four seasons. In August of 2009, O’Keeffe was named to the Colonial Athletic Association’s Silver Anniversary team as one of the top 25 players to play in the league’s 25-year history.

Although O’Keeffe grew up playing for the Roanoke Star Soccer Club (playing on the boys team when there was no girls team), she played her final two years of club soccer with the McLean Zephyr, helping the team capture the USYSA National Club Championship in 1995.

In 2004, Carrie participated in the United States U19 Women's National Team camp as an overage player before the world championship in Thailand. O'Keeffe’s coaching experience includes time at Harvard University and with the Washington Freedom Soccer Club.

Carrie and her husband, Jay, have two children, Caroline and Jack.
