Coach Barbara Cohen Bio

Coach Barbara Cohen was a member of the original D.C. Divas squad in 2001, where she played as a defensive back. She came to the Divas with impressive athletic credentials, having competed at the U.S. Powerlifting Collegiate Nationals in college. Cohen was a personal fitness trainer and an assistant strength and conditioning coach at American University.

After one season wearing the Divas uniform, Coach Cohen remained on the Divas’ sidelines, serving as the strength and conditioning coach under head coach Ezra Cooper in 2003 and 2004. Cohen was the first female coach in Divas history and the first to serve in the role of team strength and conditioning coach.
