HELLO FRIENDS OF WOMEN'S SOCCER
We are getting close to the kickoff of our 2017 season. We wanted to provide some updates to you all with what is happening with the soccer program!
We open up the 2017 season against our southern rivals, the University of Lethbridge. Kickoff is scheduled for 11:00am Saturday, September 9th @ MRU Stadium Field.
I would like to formally invite all Mt. Royal Alumni (MRC, MRU) to come and celebrate our 6th year of competition in U Sports.
I would like to have any alumni in attendance come and join the current squad in the new team room post-match for a friendly exchange. We kindly ask that any and all alumni update their contact her to ensure you are receiving the latest news from the program.
Update your alumni contact
The remaining home schedule can be found on the MRU Cougars Website! And if you didn't hear....we have a new LOGO! Along with the new logo, the school has aligned with Under Amour as our new gear supplier. Come support by stopping by a home match (Entry is still FREE!) and see our new match day kits. The days of the 3 stripes are in the past!
We've added some great recruits this season to continue to push this program forward. In the past 5 years the program has joined the University league we have found ways to lead in the classroom and improve each year. And for those of you in our ACAC days, we'll we can't forget the perfect 10-0 season!
For the second time in program history the team went down to the 🇺🇸 to play some preseason matches. This past month we just came back from playing University of Idaho and Gonzaga - both NCAA Division 1 programs.
To conclude the preseason - we had the program's past three captains come back and speak to the current squad about their experiences; what they learned by being in the program and what advice they had for the new players starting the program.
Thank you Janelle Carbert, Kristin Deeks, & Glenna Burrows for your generous time!
We'd like to welcome and thank our coaching staff for their time and efforts to continue to push this program forward. As of this summer, the program now has a full-time coach in Tino Fusco, who is entering his 9th year as leader of the program.
