Soccer Honors

In 2007, our high school senior girl’s soccer team won City Championships in Division 2.  My position was on the starting line-up playing as a left-outside defender. Our record for the entire season was 7-1 with 27 goals for, and 10 goals against. As this season only has 5 senior returning players, using our leadership skills was important for leading the new team into another season. Our 2008 season ended with a Silver medal. We made it all the way into the City Championship and lost 1-0 due to a late goal. It was mostly a rebuilding season for all the junior players, however it was a huge accomplishment in order to reach the city finals! This season I was chosen to play in a High School All-star soccer team, in which all the high schools in North Calgary play against the South schools. (The link for this can be found at http://www.canada.com/calgaryherald/features/highschoolsports/story.html?id=b5791624-3256-462c-96b6-77b65e1f1066) 

With my club team, I have been to provincials twice, and won various medals with the team. Even though our outdoor season for 2008 was not as impressive, I was chosen over the rest of my teammates to participate in the Tier 2 All-star/Select team. I had the opportunity to play with the best players from all the teams in Tier 2. The All-star team played against Mount Royal College, University of Calgary Dinosaurs, and other Division 1 U-18 teams from British Columbia, and other cities in Alberta. Being able to play against high level teams not only helped me improve individually as a player, but also allowed myself to gain confidence in that I have what it takes to play side-by-side with most of these other experienced players. I am now currently playing in the Calgary Womens Soccer Association (CWSA) under Juventus Chieftians in Division 1.

I have been invited to numerous ID camps and other soccer events to organizations including the University of Alberta, where I got a chance to be exposed to the level and lifestyle of a university soccer player, and meet a handful of great coaches and encouraging team mates.
My Feedback from this camp is as follows:
"Ginelle demonstrates a good understanding of many advanced defending and attacking componets. She did well to push herself into the attack as an outside back. Your techincal ability and speed of play gave success with these attacks. Her determination to get into the attack and to regain the ball as the situation needed demonstrates the attitude many programs would find valuable. She demonstrates qualities that many college coaches would be fortunate to add to their program."

Personal Highlights

 My most recent volunteer work has been part of the Mike Metcalfe 30-hour soccer marathon in which a 30 hour soccer game took place in order to raise money for cancer! I was there for 13 hours throughout the night and morning hours meeting new people, and helping for a great cause! Also I've put my time toward volunteering with the Schizopherenia Society of Alberta to help plan and prepare their Christmas dinner/party for this past holiday season!
