The Michigan Wolverines women's soccer team is the women's intercollegiate soccer program representing the University of Michigan. The school competes in the Big Ten Conference in Division I of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA). The Michigan women's soccer team plays its home games at the U-M Soccer Stadium on the university campus in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Michigan has won two Big Ten tournaments and has advanced as far as the quarterfinals in the NCAA Division I Women's Soccer Championship since the creation of the program in 1994.
Women's soccer has been a varsity sport at the University of Michigan since 1994, and the team has played in the Big Ten Conference since its formation. The team has won the Big Ten conference tournament twice, in 1997 and 1999, although it has never won a regular season conference title: the best it has finished is second place, which it has done on four separate occasions. Michigan's best result in the NCAA Division I Women's Soccer Championship was a quarterfinal appearance in 2002. All of these achievements came during the tenure of Debbie Rademacher (née Belkin), who coached the team from its inception in 1994 until 2007. Since the 2008 season, the team has been coached by Greg Ryan, who was previously the head coach of the United States women's national soccer team. Under Ryan, the team has qualified for three berths in the NCAA Division I Women's Soccer Championship, although it has not won any Big Ten titles. On January 25,2018, it was announced that the University of Michigan and coach Greg Ryan decided to part ways after a 6-6-6 last season, 3-5-3 in Big Ten Play. Ryan was 103-64-36 in his time at Michigan.
