The University of Winnipeg Wesmen have named Amy Anderson as the women’s soccer coach for the upcoming 2014 Canada West season.
Anderson, 36, was an assistant coach with the Wesmen last season and has a wealth of experience to her résumé.
She was an assistant coach with the Manitoba Provincial Girls’ Soccer team (2008-present). In 2011-2012 she was an assistant coach with the University of Manitoba Women’s Soccer program, and is currently coaching the Provincial U14 team and is a key instructor at the Portage Trails Soccer Academy.
“She has competitiveness about her that I have seen before in some of other successful coaches in our programs,” said U of W athletic director Doran Reid. “She seems to have a knack of being able to connect to the players and knows what it takes to be successful in a student athlete scenario.”
