Brianna Krekoski joined the Soccer Chelsea Technical Staff team in 2016. She is currently the head coach for the Female U15 AA team and Soccer Chelsea's summer camps. Growing up in northern Alberta, Bri's first season playing soccer was not unlike most kids'- picking dandelions with her cousin while her uncle (coach) tried desperately to motivate the "flower pickers" from the sidelines. Eventually, she grew to love the actual game of soccer, moving away from home as a young teenager to play elite level soccer in Edmonton. She played in several provincial, national, and international level tours in her youth, and played premier & major league soccer in Alberta and Ontario before retiring her boots. Bri takes a special interest in the development of female athletes and in the promotion of the women's game. She has coached a range of age and skill levels over the past 10 years and now continues to share her passion for the beautiful game, here, at Soccer Chelsea.
Melissa Pesant has been on the soccer fields playing at a competitive level for over 15 years. She played in the Outaouais area for several years, initially with the Hull soccer club (ASH), then AAA with FC Outaouais and then played with the Ottawa Fury. She also played with the University of Moncton for 2 years and in Albi, France in division 2. She is currently the goalkeeper for the Gee-Gees at the University of Ottawa. Last season they finished 3rd in the country! Melissa has been coaching for many years and enjoys spending time on the pitch with young players. She hopes to share her passion and engage the players in having fun while doing it.
