Jo Anne Mallay-Jones – Creston North Marystown, Newfoundland
Category: Coach/Official/Sport
Administrator Sport: Soccer
Supported by: The Canadian Soccer Association
President and coach of the Creston North Marystown Soccer Association Jo Anne Mallay-Jones is determined to get young girls involved in soccer. By creating a developmental soccer camp designed specifically for girls aged 6-9, Jo Anne hopes to teach the girls about the sport while increasing their self-esteem, team building skills and self-empowerment. The camp also involves parents and caregivers through monthly challenges. Participants who complete the challenges will be awarded a badge that they can proudly display on their jerseys. Through the use of the WISE Fund, the cost of the badges and jerseys labelled with “Play like a girl” will be offered to the each girl. Jo Anne is confident that some of her teen girl participants will serve as great role models and coaches to the younger budding stars.
