For Kicks Podcast, Episode 33: CANWNT vs. USWNT friendlies

This past week we became more Canadian than ever before when we travelled to Vancouver to see Canada take on their fiercest foes, U.S.A. We had so much fun as part of that record-setting crowd. So, if our voices sound strained, it’s because we were yelling. A lot.

In this episode, we talk about the two-game friendly series between Canada and the US. Listen to our retelling of the epic match we attended in Vancouver and lament the match we watched from home.

For Kicks Podcast, Episode 32: Chat with Desiree Scott and Melissa Tancredi

Desiree Scott and Melissa Tancredi were recently in Edmonton for FC Edmonton’s Girls in Soccer II night and Pro-Connect event. While they were in town, we had a chance to chat with them about the upcoming international friendlies vs. USA, the importance of girls in soccer nights, their hometowns and more. They were an absolute delight to talk to and it was so great to see them share their stories, inspire and celebrate with girls in soccer.

Desiree Scott made her debut with the Canadian national team in 2010 and since then, she’s been an unstoppable force also known as “the Destroyer.” Scott is a two-time Olympic gold medal winner, supporter of KidSport and all around badass who doesn’t plan to slow down any time soon.

Melissa Tancredi made her debut with the Canadian national team in 2004 and until her retirement from the team early this year, she had 125 appearances and 27 goals. Also a two-time Olympic bronze medalist, “Tanc” helped Canada make history with a pair of goals that resulted in the team’s first ever win against Germany at the 2016 Olympics.

Thanks to both Desiree and Melissa for taking the time to talk to us!

For Kicks Podcast, Episode 12: CANWNT and USWNT at the Rio Olympics, a chat with RJ Allen of Backline Soccer

Canada has reached the podium for the second Olympics in a row and will leave Rio with a hard-fought bronze medal! From the bottom of our little Canada-soccer-loving hearts, we could not possibly be more proud. In our next podcast we’ll be getting into the nitty gritty of Canada’s final days in the tournament, but until then…

In our latest episode, we talk to RJ Allen, editor-in-chief at Backline Soccer, co-host of the Scouting Report podcast and writer for Sounder At Heart. We discuss our thoughts about the US’s early exit from the Rio Olympic tournament, what we expect the impact on the NWSL and negotiations with USSF to be, and, of course, Canada’s bronze medal win.

We wrap things up with a quick look at the U-15 Championship in Florida, where Canada went home with silver.
