Assistant Coach

Tim Rosenfeld is in his seventh year as an associate coach with the Wisconsin women's soccer program.

Rosenfeld joined the Badgers in 2007 after six years as an assistant at Penn State. He works primarily with the Badgers goalkeepers and strikers, as well as handling scheduling, recruiting, travel and youth camps.

"Tim has been an amazing asset to every program he has been involved in," said Wisconsin head coach Paula Wilkins. "Whether he is aiding in player development on the field or in player growth off the field, Tim is passionate about his players and is truly one of the best goalkeeper coaches in the country. His track record speaks volumes to that."

Rosenfeld was instrumental in the development of the program's goalkeepers at Penn State, most recently two-time All-American and Canadian national team member Erin McLeod. He also coached three-time All-American Emily Oleksiuk, who was drafted in the 2001 WUSA draft by Carolina Courage, and Amanda Brown, who played on the 2006 Canada Senior National Team.

Rosenfeld, who holds a Canadian Soccer Association "B" coaching license, first arrived at Penn State as an assistant coach for the Nittany Lion men's team during the 1996 season. After spending three years at St. Francis, he returned to Penn State as an assistant with the women's program in 2001. He also served as an instructor in the university's department of kinesiology for four years.

Before arriving in Happy Valley for a second time, Rosenfeld was the head women's coach at St. Francis (Pa.) from 1998-2000.

Prior to first joining the Penn State staff, Rosenfeld coached at the Canadian Soccer Academy for two years and coached at his alma mater for two seasons.

A Thunder Bay, Ontario, native, Rosenfeld received a bachelor's degree in physical education from the University of Toronto in 1994. As a collegiate player, Rosenfeld, a goalkeeper, captained the squad as a senior and was a member of the provincial and national team programs from 1986-90. Upon graduation, he played professionally for 10 seasons in the Canadian Soccer League.

Rosenfeld and his wife, Tracey, have two daughters, Jaime (11) and Jordan (6).
