The club joined United Women’s Soccer earlier this month and will also play in the same division as Calgary Foothills WFC.

The St. Albert Soccer Association announced some big signings this week.

Brittany Kindzierski will join the Impact after the club announced earlier this month they would take part in the United Women’s Soccer League.

“It’s so exciting. I just want to play more soccer and the fact that it’s professional-amateur soccer where I grew up, it’s an incredible opportunity.”

Kindzierski previously served as captain of the UTEP Miners in the U.S. and is a two-time CSA national champion and Champions League qualifier.

Following her signing, Edmontonians Tanya Boychuk and Erika Vecchio also joined the team this week. Boychuk previously served as captain for the University of Memphis and the Canadian U20 squad, while Vecchio was captain of the MacEwan Griffins and a CCAA All-Canadian/National Champion and MVP.

Kindzierski believes fans in the area will flock to the field to see them take on different teams from across North America, including Calgary Foothills WFC.

“Those will definitely be our hardest battles. I have quite a few friends on that team so it will be friendly before, feisty during, and friendly after.”

Along with Calgary, the Western portion of UWS also includes teams from Kaysville, Utah as well as Santa Clarita & Fresno California.

Last year’s UWS Championship in Calgary drew 1700 fans.
