Coach Taylor
Coach Benjamin
U16/A U16/B
Taylor has been playing football for 13 years, ranging from co-ed flag, boy's tackle football, women's touch, women's tackle football, and to women's flag with Ottawa Women's Football. Her passion for football stems from the community that surrounds the sport and a love for the game. However, oftentimes football can be exclusive and intimidating for women. Coach Taylor is determined to create more spaces for women in football, and to help foster a better, more inclusive environment for women of all ages to develop as players and to have the opportunity to compete at an elite level.
I'm 25 years old and football is my passion. It's something that I really enjoy, and I have gained a lot of experience that I'm sure will be useful for the team. I am very grateful for the opportunity and excited to start this project. I trust my teammates, athletes, and the process. I am sure it will be a great season full of learning and good times.

Selina is a competitive football player who excels at motivating her team-mates and leading by example. Her focus lies in empowering young women, fostering a sense of community, and aiding athletes in their personal growth both on and off the field. 

Selina has represented Canada on multiple occasions on the world stage, where she won six gold medals in karate. She is dedicated to giving back to her community by sharing her knowledge and experience. "When I'm not coaching or competing — I'm cheering my beloved boys in silver and blue. Go Cowboys!’ 
I am a dedicated and passionate member of the football community, with over 15 years of experience in football as both a player and coach. As an athlete, playing hockey at the university level has engrained the importance of teamwork, discipline, and perseverance in achieving success. As a coach, and lifelong football enthusiast, I am excited to share my football knowledge and experience with the team and am committed to giving back to the next generation of athletes instilling in them the values of sportsmanship and hard work.

Coach Marie-Noel
Coach Daniel
U16/B U16/A

Football has been my passion since I was 30 years old. I have played Touch, Flag, and even tried Tackle Football. I love playing, watching, and now coaching. I wanted to be part of an amazing organization where I could share my knowledge and passion. I'm so happy to join OWF and be the Head Coach of U16B. Besides football, I enjoy playing Softball and Volleyball. I also travel a lot and am always looking for the next destination.

My name is Daniel Gonzalez. I'm 25 years old. I started practicing football when I was 7, and I continued with college football at one of the most prestigious universities in Mexico. Throughout my sports life, I have had the opportunity to participate in different flag football tournaments as a player and coach.

My passion for the sport was born during my early years as a child when I learned about the discipline and character that this sport develops in a person. I consider it as one of the most complete sports, not only generating great athletes but also individuals with integrity and success in every aspect of their lives.

So, I'm super excited to share with the team what this sport has taught me during my life, and I believe that success is the result of love and hard work in whatever you do.
