Sting Star is Born



The Sting's very own Sami has found herself signing autographs after her recent appearance in Nike's latest commercial featuring the USA Women's National team. She is featured throughout the commercial including an appearance on the team bus.

At first the coaches didnt recognize her on the bus as she was so quiet as the Sami we are used to on bus trips is not portrayed as shown............. Well done kid you looked awesome!!

Sting Working Out



The Sting were asked to participate in the 2015 Pacific Coaching Conference at the Fortius Centre in Burnaby last Sunday. The players were showing off their skills to assorted coaches from across North America who had gathered for the event. On hand for this were also numerous University & College coaches so it was great to see all eyes on the players.

The first session was led by Ron Smith, former Technical Director for the Australian National team. Ron led a session on "creating Good Habits in Players" In the attached picture Ron is seen here showing the players some drill she wants them to perform ahead of the session.

The second session was led by Dick Bate, current FIFA Technical Director and former Technical Director for England's U-17 to U-20 National program. The session he put on was "Developing Possession" and he challenged the players in some good drills. To have a coach of his standing and knowledge run the sesions was a pretty special treat for the players and as he told the coaches on hand he was most impressed with the Sting.
