For Kicks Podcast, Episode 25: An interview with Foothills WFC coach Troye Flannery

Currently, Foothills WFC is the highest level of women’s soccer being played in Canada and we’re thrilled that their club is so close to home in Alberta. We’re even more thrilled, however, that head coach Troye Flannery took the time to talk to us about the team and the beautiful game. This is an episode we’re very excited and proud to share.

In this episode we:

  • interview Troye Flannery, head coach of Foothills WFC
  • provide a quick update on the UWCL (spoiler: it’s gonna be Buchanan vs. Lawrence in the final!)
  • can’t help but gush about the Boston Breakers victory over the Seattle Reign on April 29

Be sure to check out our new Foothills WFC page on our site for their schedule, roster and more. We encourage everyone to support Foothills WFC and help women’s soccer grow in Alberta and across Canada.

Our next episode is going to be all NWSL and we want listener questions! So send us your questions by May 27 and we’ll use them in our next show.

For Kicks Podcast, Episode 23: The Algarve Cup

Canada arrived in Portugal for this year’s Algarve Cup as reigning champions and left with the second place prize. It was a performance we feel pretty good about considering the number of new young players on the tournament roster this year.

Streams for the games were scant but luckily, our European correspondent Janine was there for the final vs. Spain and was able to talk about how the game looked field-side.

In this episode we talk about:

  • CANWNT news
  • The Algarve Cup, including our chat with Janine (there is an echo on our chat with Janine so if it’s too much for your ears you can skip from 30:45 – 42:17 to avoid some echo in your ear)
  • Our on-again/off-again relationship with Canada Soccer
  • The weather, because we’re that Canadian (spoiler: snow in Edmonton!)

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.
