It is the goal of Sistas In Soccer to provide a place for women of all ages
to play the game of soccer in a fun and recreational setting, to meet new
people, to get some exercise and to do it in a manner that is both kind and
cordial to all other members of the league. Our mission is not to
fundraise, create a competitive atmosphere, to cause harm or to undermine other
players or leagues.
In the spring of 2003, Christine Penny & Erin Weston, (who are sisters-in-law), tried to find a
women's recreational soccer league in the city of London, Ontario. Alas, there was no such league. So with some quick phone calls, some late nights and a great contact with the Nor'West Optimist Club, Sistas In Soccer
Our first season was a huge hit. Over 200 women registered to play this "just for fun" league and we had a blast. Most of our players have little or no soccer experience. All that is required of any "sista" is a great team spirit, a desire to play the game and a fabulous sense of humour. We often burn more calories laughing than playing soccer.
Since it's inception in 2003, Sistas in Soccer has grown to over 1000 women playing in London and has branched out to 4 cities. We are excited to welcome Kitchener and Byron to the Sista-hood!
Sistas In Soccer is not for anyone looking to play competitive soccer, however it is for EVERYONE looking to play soccer, have a lot of fun and meet new people.
