This Will Be The First Official Player and Personal Development
NWSLPA members Katherine Reynolds and Rachel Hill join the USYS team to gain first-hand business experience.
US Youth Soccer (USYS) is kicking off the first official player and personal development relationship with the National Women’s Soccer League Players Association. Two NWSLPA members, Katherine Reynolds and Rachel Hill, will join the USYS team during their off-season.
Katherine and Rachel will be joining the USYS team in Frisco, Texas, where they will receive first-hand experiences in both marketing and operations. While with USYS, they will learn new skills, develop capabilities and interact with staff, personnel and young players throughout their experience on-site and live at the USYA Fall/Winter events.
Katherine Reynolds plays with the Portland Thorns and won an NWSL Championship with them in 2017. Rachel Hill plays with the Orlando Pride and previously played with Perth Glory (Australia) in 2017/2018 and 2018/2019.
The USYS + NWSLPA partnership is aimed at developing programs focused on growing the game of soccer and increasing awareness of the National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) and its players while cultivating the personal development of participating NWSL players. Through this first-of-its-kind relationship between a youth and professional soccer organization, will create opportunities to further connect professional female soccer players via networking opportunities, USYS events, clinics, camps, and speaking engagements. Participating players from the NWSLPA will continue serving as positive role models within their communities as they encourage younger players.
