Jennifer Turnek, U16, has been playing for Northwest United FC since she was a U11 player. Turnek was offered an opportunity to fly to Manila, the capitol of the Philippines, to start an intensive 3-week closed training camp that leads to the Women's National Team. This opportunity will, in the long run, lead them to prepare for the Word Cup qualifiers and Olympic Qualifiers in the next few years. Turnek's hard work paid off - she not only made it on to the Philippines' Women's National Team, she made it on to the starting 11. A huge congratulations to you, Jennifer!
Her U16 coach, Kristian Powell (DOC of Northwest United), says "It's been a pleasure coaching such an unbelievably motivated athlete. I'm very proud as we have watched her grow into a fantastic player here at the club..."
