Welcome back to the club Gina. To reintroduce herself, Gina shared the following about her soccer experience. Please say hello to her when you see her!
Hi guys, my name is Gina Pacheco and I have been involved in soccer for many years, firstly as a player and now as a coach.
Soccer has and remains to be a passion in my life. As a youth player, I played for the Ottawa Fury youth academy and later returned to their W-League program for many years. From youth, I received a 4 year full scholarship to the University of South Florida, graduating with a degree in Health Sciences. Throughout my collegiate years, I was called to play for the U-20 Canadian National and was fortunate enough to travel to Guatemala for the World Cup qualifiers. From there I was selected to play for the Canadian National Team, earning my first cap in 2011. After University, I decided to hang my cleats up due to a hip injury…..which lead me to coaching.
