We want to congratulate our former Northern Lions player Jaspreet Chuhan on her recent success with the Conestoga College Womans Soccer Program. A year removed from soccer, Jaspreet approached Northern Lions looking to make a return, by making her College soccer team. She constantly asked Northern Lions coaches to push her, often staying back after training. She went above and beyond the goals she set by not only making the team, but also making multiple appearances in the starting lineup.
We are proud to announce that two of our players Amar Dhindsa and Colby Rogers are currently playing for Sigma FC (our affiliate club). Amar and Colby are currently being scouted by top colleges/universities in North America. Sigma FC recruits top talent and our goal is to get more players to that level so they can be in position to play for a top college/university or professionally.
