Manel already boasts an impressive start to her soccer career. This summer she was one of 30 coaches who organized the FIFA Live Your Goals Event 2014. As part of the lead-up to the FIFA  U-20 Women’s World Cup Canada 2014, the event gave 200 girls the opportunity to play soccer games, take part in skills challenges and meet Canadian soccer stars.

Manel was selected for the Ontario Soccer Association Female Mentorship Program. Coaches were selected based on experience, potential and recommendations. The nine-month program will help prepare coaches to excel in the coaching leadership role as they aspire to attain their Provincial B and National level Licenses.

The Hotspurs are happy to have Manel with us as she works towards her OSA Provincial Pre-B license and other soccer endeavours. With her current referee soccer certificate she is also looking forward to upgrading to a regional referee next summer.

Thank you Manel for all of your contributions! We’re excited to follow and support you in all of your achievements.
