Broncos College women’s soccer announces Edmonton area recruiting class

The Olds College Broncos women's soccer coaching staff has been busy over the winter months with recruitment as the program has seen key players graduate from Olds College, including the Flett sisters (Jasmine, Jamie and Jessie) who will now be transitioning to compete in U SPORTS. The coaching staff have signed nine new recruits for this upcoming season to join six returning players and are still in the process of adding a few more signing to the roster in upcoming months.

 "I am really excited for this year's incoming recruits," said Olds Broncos Soccer Head Coach Macky Singh. "We have added a lot of speed to the team in all positions and plenty of goal scoring options. As we look to qualify for the ACAC Women's Soccer Conference Championships for the third straight year, the addition of these nine recruits will give significant depth to the program which we lacked in the past two seasons. With two European players with a lot of experience along with a blend of seven top quality Albertans in the mix, I am really looking forward to the start of training camp in mid-August."
