Assistant Coach, Manager, Sharon Verley
Sharon has loved the sport since she was small kicking the football on many pitches in the UK. Since moving to Canada as a young girl she contiuned her love for the sport. Sharon played for her highschool and university soccer teams in her late teen and early twenties. Her positions were strong midfield and defense. She has coached her son's house league teams over the years and enjoyed every minute. Her son Ethan started to excel and was recruited for the u8 All Star team. It was very hard for her to stay on the sidelines and be quiet. So she decided to get involved. Most recently she was head coach of the u10C and u11B competitive teams for Kitchener Youth Soccer. She loves Chelsea FC and Arsenal FC. She lives in Cambridge with her husband and son.
