As president of The North Bay Selects Soccer Club I am proud to announce that Leesa Church has been named the club head coach. Her main responsibility will be for the overall development and implementation of the coach/player development program in conjunction with the new Canadian Soccer Association's Long Term Player Development Strategy. We want to improve player skills and abilities and Leesa is more than qualified to assist the club coaches in reaching these goals.
Leesa began her completive soccer at the age of nine and travelled to many tournaments including the Schwan's USA Cup in 1996 and 2005. She also played for the Sudbury Canadians that played competitively in the Ontario Youth Soccer League and she also represented NorthEastern Ontario while playing for the Northern Regional team. Her skills were evident as she was requested to try out for the Ontario Provincial team.
Her post-secondary years found her playing for two university teams, first for Graceland University in the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics League and later for Nipissing University in the Ontario University Athletics League. Leesa was recognized for her abilities as she was given the honour of offensive player of the year and also was on three different all star teams. She was also recognized by the North Bay soccer community and North Bay Sports Hall of Fame by being the recipient of the Dedication to Soccer award in 2011.
She believes in giving back to the community and can be found assisting with youth soccer camps and co-coaching Widdifield varsity and also North Bay Selects soccer.
Leesa feels that her playing and coaching skills give her a solid foundation not only in developing better soccer players but to help these individuals to develop their character as resourceful and responsible members of their community.
