Welcoming New Coaches to the Team in Armenia

We are so excited to introduce you to all of our amazing soccer coaches in Armenia! In partnership with Girls of Armenia Leadership Soccer (GOALS) and the Aurora Humanitarian Initiative, we hired four new soccer coaches on our trip in April to join our three original coaches hired in July 2021. This team of coaches is dedicated to creating safe and fun spaces for children to play and experience joy through sports. We can’t wait to watch the program thrive under their leadership!

Anush is a talented soccer player and an energetic coach! She plays on a professional team in Armenia, and, like coach Mariam, splits her time between two towns. As a result, she hosts an Academy in Goris and one in Vayk. She feels proud to offer a safe and fun space for children in each community and hopes to inspire more girls to play competitively.
