“I’m so thrilled for the opportunity to connect with people in the soccer community in Nova Scotia. I hope to share some of my experience and learnings but also connect with people at the grassroots level in soccer. Soccer has given me so much, it’s helped me with discipline, hard work, determination, but also helped me to learn about leadership, working well with others, self-worth, and recognizing that sport isn’t accessible or welcoming to everyone. I believe in collaboration and working together to create safe environments but also recognizing what barriers in sport exist.” said Erin McLeod
This event is open to everyone, regardless of gender, age, or sports background. Erin's message is one of hope, determination, and a powerful call to action. We invite you to be part of this inspiring experience and look forward to seeing you there.
