Editorial Reviews

Canadian Review of Materials
"Goals and Dreams is sure to score big with soccer fans, especially girls who play the sport themselves... The athletes featured in Goals and Dreams will impress readers as extremely likeable, animated, hard-working, caring women who value family, friends, and sportsmanship. Canadians have every right to celebrate them!"
- Julie Chychota, CM Magazine

Meet the Author

Shel Brødsgaard is Canada's national goalkeeping coach and the author of Soccer--Guarding the Goal. He has worked with the Canadian women's team for the past four years.

Award-winning North Vancouver journalist Bob Mackin's Olympic journey began in the fall of 1998 when he attended the news conference at BC Place Stadium announcing Vancouver's bid to become Canada's candidate for the 2010 Winter Olympics. Almost twelve years later, he was among the last people to leave the stadium after the Games closed. He even donned a pair of red mittens to carry the Olympic torch in Edmonton. Bob spent ten years as a sports columnist with the Vancouver Courier and reported for six years for 24 Hours Vancouver and the Sun Media chain. He is the author of three books on baseball trivia and one on soccer.
