Coach Gretchen Fischer is a homegrown product of Cincinnati, Ohio, matriculating at Sycamore High School and graduating with her undergraduate and graduate degree from Xavier University, where she played soccer collegiately.

Gretchen played soccer at every level from youth, club, high school, and collegiately and still actively participates in co-ed adult leagues around town.

Gretchen is a student of the game, actively looking for any opportunity to give back and stay connected.

Since 2018, she's worked closely with my community recreational soccer league, GSSA, acting as a board member, coach (ages U4 - U18), referee, and Level Coordinator for the Boys and Girls U8-U9 Level. "2022 is my second year at the helm of the soccer programs at DPCR. I am excited to continue growing our soccer programs, especially this year with a focus on leading the Lady Bruins to a fun, empowering, and fulfilling soccer season."
