Coach Michele Ramirez has accepted a 6 month contract to play professional soccer for Ostersunds DFF of Sweden, who are in the 2nd Division.
Coach Michele, who currently plays for the San Diego Sea Lions has been quoted as saying she is “ecstatic” with the deal which allows her to fulfill her lifelong dream of playing Professional Soccer.
Michele joined the Wave 2 years ago to begin her career in coaching. As a dedicated coach she was in charge of the GU14 and GU10 teams, Michele also help run our Spring League and Wave Summer Camps. Although her career as a coach was going from strength to strength, Coach Michele was offered the chance to play full time pro soccer in Sweden a little over a week ago. After a turbulent few days Michele knew the offer was too good to turn down and accepted a 6 month deal.
Obviously we are sad to have lost an important member of staff and also a great person but we couldn’t be more pleased for Coach Michele and wish her the very best of luck! There will be hundreds of fans here at the Wave supporting her all the way and as a club would always welcome her back…after a glittering career in Europe of course!
