“Over the last five years of having the opportunity to lead the U of S Women’s Soccer Program we have achieved many program firsts and I have had the opportunity to work along the way with some fantastic coaches and student athletes. What motivates me and excites me about the future of our Program and this new initiative is the opportunity to prove that Saskatchewan has talented athletes that can succeed at the University level through hard work, perseverance and enjoyment of the process of becoming the best that you can be as a student, an athlete and above all an individual. This program is a very important stepping stone for us to connect and create a synergy from our current varsity program to the up and coming future athletes which we hope one day aspire to play for the green and white!
