SeaLions players and coaches were on hand to talk with the girls about their experiences growing up with soccer, and gave advice on what it takes to succeed as a female soccer player at the highest level. The players signed autographs, took pictures, and even worked out with the U12-15 girls in the afternoon, putting the Wave players through their paces.
Wave’s very own Coach and San Diego SeaLion MICHELLE RAMIREZ was on hand, and was a huge hit with the girls.
Wave Director Of Coaching Steve Cowell: “We are very excited that the Sealions came out to meet our Wave players. In a sport where participation numbers are even between girls and boys, but the majority of coaches are male, it’s very important that the girls have positive female role models who are active in the game… We are especially proud of our very own Wave coach Michelle Ramirez, an impact player for the Sealions, and someone who is great to have in our club, to pass on her knowledge to our girls, and provide them with an excellent role model. We hope to see the Sealions here with the Wave again soon.”
The San Diego SeaLions return home to Cathedral Catholic High on July 8 to take on Beach FC at 2:00PM. This is the last regular season match for San Diego, and will determine whether or not they will advance to the playoffs. Come out and show your support for Women’s Soccer, and your very own Carlsbad Wave coach and SeaLions’ defender, Michele Ramirez. Let’s get your SeaLions to the playoffs!
Go Wave, and Go SeaLions!!
