Our new Sport Development Coordinator, Jamie Booth!

Yesterday we welcomed our new Sport Development Coordinator, Mr. Jamie Booth, and we’re very happy to have him join our team. Jamie has developed quite a background of sports over his many years of being a youth coach. Here is what he had to say about himself:

 

I have played “real football,” or soccer since I was five years old. I grew up in Langley and played in the local community program until my early 20’s. I attended Douglas College and played for the Men’s team, then transferred to UBC and played Junior Varsity where I sustained a serious injury and made the decision to start coaching youth.

I worked for a private soccer academy and then at various club and team coaching positions in Vancouver, Langley, Aldergrove, and currently with the Richmond Youth Soccer Association. I have also spent time at the British Columbia Soccer Association Provincial All Star program.

I am certified at the CSA National B Level and will be pursuing my National A License in the near future.

I have had the opportunity to work with girls and boys alike, as well as youth with a wide range of skill abilities. I consider myself fortunate to have had excellent mentorship opportunities and look forward to working with the SportAbility team and its dedicated and tireless volunteers.
