Park began her coaching career at Yeoju University in 2016 after playing for Seoul City Hall in the WK League, Chungbuk Sports (now Sejong Sports) and Albirex Niigata in Japan. After coaching her alma mater, Pohang Women’s High School, she became a full-time coach at the Korea Football Association in 2019, where she coached the women’s U-17 and U-20 national teams and already experienced the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup in 2022.

Since December of last year, she has been the head coach of the Women’s A team, led by Colleen Bell, which competed at the 2023 Women’s World Cup in Australia and New Zealand. She will continue to serve as both the U-20 and A team coach.

With Park’s appointment, the Women’s U-20 team will be reorganized with the goal of qualifying for the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup in Colombia next September. To qualify for the World Cup, the team will need to finish in the top three at the AFC U-20 Women’s Asian Cup in Uzbekistan next March. Park will be assisted by former Korea Football Association coaches Ko Hyun-bok, Kim Dae-hwan, goalkeeping coach, and Lee Ji-sung, physical coach.

The women’s U-20 team will hold its first call-up training at Paju NFC from June 6 to 9. The first call-up roster included 31 players under the age of 19, including Bae Ye-bin (Widok University), who was named to the final roster for the 2023 Women’s World Cup, and Kim Se-yeon (Chungju Yesung Girls’ High School), who recently participated in the Paris Olympic Qualifiers.

The squad was reduced to 22 players and reconvened on Nov. 24 and will train in Uzbekistan until Dec. 4. The team will also play two friendly matches against the Uzbekistan Women’s U-20 National Team on Nov. 30 and Dec. 3.
