Judith Withington


Judith was known for her grace, humility, humor and determinism. Judy’s involvement in soccer began through her 5 children, leading to her becoming Director of Dedham Youth Soccer Club. At the time, the girls’ soccer program was not affiliated with the State or National Association and therefore could not compete in tournaments or national cup competitions. Judy helped to create the Greater Boston Soccer league, and continued to pioneer opportunities for the growth of girls’ soccer by becoming the Director of the Girl’s ODP. Judy was instrumental in bringing International soccer to Harvard Stadium for the 1984 Olympics, and her role in the formation of club teams led to Massachusetts Youth Soccer becoming one of the most respected soccer associations in the USA. Additionally, Judy formed the Greater Boston Girls Soccer Club, and developed the National Challenge Cup where she became the competitions commissioner. Judy’s Greater Boston Girls teams were frequent state representatives to the Region 1 championships winning 4 State Cup finals.
