 Welcome to my website and thank you for reading it. Since we began 1st March 2006, we have received 227, 500 hits, and we are aiming for 250,000 so there's a real need for National Women's team soccer news. This site is now the longest running WNT players' blog in Canada with over 2,000 written entries.

 

I started playing soccer at 5 years old, and I have been fortunate to play for, and against, some of the world's best teams and players. As women's soccer continues to grow, many young women have set their sights on the game at the highest level. My site will provide regular news, not just about Canadian soccer matches, but insights into what it means to be a woman player. I will post background stories about my Clubs, my travels, my teams, FIFA World Cups, Tournaments, test matches and the Olympic Games

COACHES CONFERENCE IN OTTAWA   30th March 2014

                           

It  has been a while since I last wrote a journal. After the Cyprus Cup, I visited friends and family in England and Wales and I did not finally arrive home in Canada until Thursday evening. ... I was not home in Quebec for long though. I left Montreal at noon on Friday to travel to Ottawa. A couple of months ago I had been invited by the Canadian Soccer Association to represent my sport at a weekend conference for the Coaching Association of Canada. I was asked to speak at a panel held by the Women in coaching branch. READ MORE

THOUGHTS FROM THE CYPRUS CUP  16th March 2014

Every year, for the past seven years, I have traveled home from the Cyprus Cup Tournament through England and Wales. The stop on my way home to Canada allows me to visit family and friends, but the diversion provides a good way to decompress and unwind after a tough few weeks of soccer.  READ MORE

 IRELAND MATCH IS TEST OF CHARACTER

12 March 2014  From CanadaSoccer.com

But with the unique structure of the 2014 Cyprus Cup, Canada's Women's National Team played the Republic of Ireland for fifth place on Wednesday afternoon at the GSP Stadium in Nicosia. The match was a real test of character. READ MORE

 7th March 2014   From SoccerCanada.com

        

They have some bumps and bruises to show for it,  but Canada’s Women’s National Team is just one point away from another Cyprus Cup final. They were expecting plenty of physical play from Italy and the Italians didn’t disappoint. As the game wound down, Italy saw one player sent off for two yellow cards and another caution given out. Canada hit Italy where it hurts most. They scored the first three goals in a 3:1 win.  READ MORE

 CANADA MAKES GOOD START IN CYPRUS TOURNAMENT  6 March 2014 ;From CanadaSoccer.com

 

In Cyprus, Canada is off to a good start with a 3-0 victory over Finland. However, there is little room for complacency before the second Tournament match on Friday against Italy. Canada is keen to keep their victory in perspective. “We know a lot about Italy, says coach John Herdman and they’ve been changing their formation recently and it’s going to be a tough game. We know that. They’ll get right up for this.” READ MORE

 CANADA DOMINATES FINLAND  5th March 2014

From CanadaSoccer.com

 

Canada's Women's National Team last faced Finland just over a year ago at the 2013 Cyprus Cup.  On that occasion, Canada went down early, but fought back through Jonelle Filigno and Christine Sinclair to record a 2:1 victory. In the 2014 tournament Canada's Women's National Team could not have put together a more confident and dominant start as they scored twice in the first half and once in the second to pick up the 3:0 win over Finland.

SOCCER NO. 1 PARTICIPANT SPORT 5th March 2014


Most sports fans are aware that soccer (football to the rest of the world) is the No. 1 participant sport. With 270 million registered players around the world, soccer is by far the most popular sport to play and also the most viewed game by spectators. But did you know that more people play soccer in Canada than any other sport? Most Canadians think hockey is number one, but in 2012, Canada had 845,313 registered soccer players. It is estimated, if trends continue, that the 1-million player mark will be reached in a few years.  READ MORE
