Shauna Williams – Soccer

“Often when people think of Maple Ridge or Ridge Meadows Soccer Club the first person that comes to mind is Shauna. Shauna has a long history of service to grassroots soccer in Ridge Meadows. Not only is she knowledgeable, hardworking, dependable and trustworthy, but she also takes the time out of her day to help others in need. She has dedicated over 25 years of service to community soccer and was involved as a player, volunteer coach, team manager, webmaster, and Board member with Ridge Meadows Soccer Club. BC Soccer is privileged and honoured to have Shauna in their corner this year during the BC Summer Games, and they couldn’t have asked for a better person, leader, or representative.”
