  • A new mentorship program initiated with the help and collaboration of Golivegirl and Sports Bridge to provide mentorship for girls in middle school and high school

  • Increased number of high school junior coaches to serve our younger girls as mentors, welcome to our newest Junior Coach- Grace Nesmith (Freshman at Urban High School and Soccer player for SF Elite Club)

  • University women’s teams relationship building and team mentoring by nurturing our new relationships with Stanford and UC Berkeley as a club we plan to watch these two teams play as much as possible this year and soak up all their stories and knowledge

  • Professional development for our executive staff and coaches that includes mentorship from high level women coaches/executives like Tracy Hamm (SF State University Women’s Head Coach) and Ann Kletz (Goal 5 CEO)

  • More content to share with our community members about our girls, coaches, programs, and impact

  • A new fundraising ambassador program for girls, parents, friends near and far to utilize crowdfunding as a way to raise funding and awareness about our free after school program

  • Continued international reach- we miss our sisters in Costa Rica and want to continue to provide an impact and opportunity for the girls in Puntarenas by funding a summer girls soccer program for the girls in the Puntarenas Orphanage

Girls Leading Girls Awarded 2018 Sports 4 Life Grant

Girls Leading Girls Awarded 2018 Sports 4 Life Grant by Women’s Sports Foundation and espnW

Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. Foundation joins the effort to empower young girls of color through sports

[San Francisco, CA] – The Women’s Sports Foundation and espnW, in partnership with the Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. Foundation, announced Girls Leading Girls as a 2018 recipient of the Sports 4 Life initiative, a national effort to increase the participation and retention of African-American and Hispanic girls in youth sports programs.

Sports 4 Life, cofounded by the Women’s Sports Foundation and espnW, and supported by the Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. Foundation in regions including Southeast Michigan and Western New York, supports programs that help girls in four foundational areas – leadership, self-esteem, confidence and perseverance – with the expectation that growth in these areas will also support girls’ physical and emotional health and academic success.

“Our vision is that one day, all girls will have the opportunity to reach their full potential through the transformative experience of sports,” said Deborah Antoine, CEO of the Women’s Sports Foundation. “Even more than we believe in the power of sports, the Women’s Sports Foundation believes that all girls – regardless of race, ethnicity, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, ability, zip code or family income – deserve equitable access to the lifelong benefits of sports. We’re proud to partner with espnW and the Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. Foundation to make that vision a reality.”

“In a few short years of commitment and focused attention, we have seen the tangible positive results that Sports 4 Life has brought to lives of girls of color across the country,” said Laura Gentile, ESPN senior vice president, espnW and ESPN Business Operations & Content Strategy. “This program demonstrates the universal value and appeal of sports, and it is an integral piece of the espnW mission. We look forward to continuing to empower girls to realize their full potential through sports.”

Since the initiative’s inception in 2014, Sports 4 Life has nearly 200 grants totaling $1.1 million, reaching more than 50,000 girls nationally. With WSF’s support, Girls Leading Girls and other community and regional partners have been particularly successful in increasing opportunities for girls of color: more than 85% percent of girl participants identify as African-American or Hispanic.

Meet all the 2018 Sport 4 Life grant recipients and learn more about them here.

Community service through soccer in Costa Rica

Originally we were planning to return to Nicaragua, our usual destination for our summer international service trip. But due to the political unrest that began just two months before our departure we had to think fast and change course, slightly south, to Costa Rica. There we spent 5 days in a small town on the coast called Puntarenas. We coordinated logistics with a partner organization called Woza, they conduct soccer service trips in Costa Rica, Peru, Malawi every summer for high school aged groups and teams. Upon arrival we quickly jumped into the rampant soccer culture and played a night pick up game on the outdoor basketball court. The next day we began our service at the Roble elementary school nearby. There we worked with about 40 children, boys and girls ages 7-14. These children we worked with are orphans from local families that were unable to provide for them. They live in an orphanage nearby and attend this school everyday.


“Personally, I was in an orphanage before I got adopted so I wanted to be able to see these kids and just bring them joy and love. I enjoyed seeing a different culture, meeting new friendly people, and seeing people so passionate about soccer- something I love too.” - Natasha Scott, 14 years old, San Francisco, CA

Our girls- junior coaches ages 12-14, jumped in emphatically to start playing with the kids and learning about their lives. The two groups attached to each other seamlessly. We played soccer for a few hours with them and then swam in the beach, played pick up beach soccer with some locals and then played indoor soccer with some of the older very skilled boys in the community. Using our Spanish to communicate proved challenging but also humorous. Their English was pretty good so we were able to get by.

“This trip was so valuable because a lot of the soccer we played was against boys. It feels like there is always a higher bar for girls and women playing sports and so I find myself constantly having to prove myself when playing soccer, but I think us participating in this trip helped us earn respect for all girls/women from the boys we played against. We had the opportunity to show them we were real competitors on the field." -Lucie Bacho, 14 years old, San Francisco, CA

The next few days were similar with the exception of the second day. We noticed the girls were not playing that much and saw the reason was that the boys were not passing to them and often taking the ball from them even when they were on the same team. So we separated the boys from the girls and found the girls to be very interested, excited, and wanting to play more! Some of the girls had exceptional skills and athleticism.

“When we told the girls we were going to play separately from the boys their faces lit up with smiles. I think most of them hadn’t played much in the past because of fear of judgement and not being worthy of playing with boys.” - Hannah Merickel, 14 years old, San Francisco, CA

The girls were happy and that made us happy in return, to make them smile and let them know we support them.


“While we were playing buddy soccer (holding hands with a local girl while playing) my partner didn’t speak any English. But when I helped her get the ball on defense she was smiling as wide as she could and gave me a high five!” -Sophie Merickel, 12 years old, San Francisco, CA

On our last day we were able to visit the soccer academy run by a local professional soccer player named Roberto. He had a group of about 45 boys and 2 girls participating in the academy session that was run by another professional player at the local soccer stadium. The session was impressively very collegiate in its drills and style of play.

“This trip was important to me because I wanted to make a difference in an area where girls don’t generally play soccer. It was inspiring to me to see the girls smiling and having so much fun playing soccer with us. It seemed like their confidence was boosted and I hope they saw that girls are not lower than boys in sports.”- Maia Arriola, 14 years old, San Francisco, CA

After four days of coaching and playing endless amounts of soccer we had a day off to swing in the beautiful Costa Rica lush forest for some zip lining. We left Costa Rica wishing we could spend another week there- feeling grateful, accomplished, closer, and our hearts full.

“It is always good to me to learn about other cultures and their everyday lives. It was interesting to see how grateful we should be for everything we have because others in the world may not be as lucky. My favorite part of the trip was going to the school to play with the kids that are orphans because they were always very excited to see us and we all enjoyed playing together.” - Sarah Nasoni, 13 years old, San Francisco, CA

We plan to return and also remain connected with the local community partners, Roberto and Karol, to start a girls summer soccer program just like our Nicaragua program to get more girls playing and to provide the resources they need to do so.

If you want to help by either donating soccer cleats & clothes or by donating towards the $3,000 summer program cost here we know the girls will be extremely grateful!


“My favorite part of the trip was meeting the local people, getting to play soccer against the boys my age because they were really skilled, and seeing all the girls at the school play soccer and really enjoy it!” -Ella Plotinsky, 12 years old, San Francisco, CA


Meet Coach Karli!

Meet Coach Karli Jonasen

Karli is originally from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. She joined Girls Leading Girls in 2017 as a head coach and SF Sol program manager. Karli recently joined our 03/04 SF Sol Travel team to Gothenburg, Sweden for the Gothia Cup over the summer. Karli attended Loras College in Dubuque, IA where she majored in International Studies and Politics. In 2010-2011, Karli played soccer for Loras College, where they were conference Champions and made it to the second round of the NCAA tournament.  She ended her soccer career after the season due to multiple ACL/meniscus surgeries. However, she then played lacrosse for Loras in 2013 and 2014. She was captain and was awarded Most Inspirational Player after the 2013 season.


What do you love most about coaching?

The best part of coaching is connecting with the girls. Helping them on the field is awesome and watching them improve and succeed on the field is great. But the even more rewarding part is helping them become better versions of themselves. Helping them see that they are stronger than they think, that they can push themselves farther than they think they can go, and learning that they are leaders in their own way is the most rewarding.

I have had my fair share of bad coaches, and I know that I do not want other girls to have to have coaches who will make them hate the game. I still love the game because of the couple great coaches I did have. I learned what kind of coach I wanted to be which is a positive and encouraging coach. And at the same time I am serious about helping them become better players.

What does coaching mean to you?

Coaching is so much more than just the game. It is about their future. Teaching these girls healthy habits, how to play the game safely, how to do technical skills properly, teaching them good sportsmanship, teaching them how to be a good teammate is so important to me. Helping them grow is the best part about coaching.

What motivated you to play collegiate soccer?

I wanted to be the best athlete I possibly could be. I pushed myself harder than anyone else. I was my toughest critic. Since I was 13 years old, I have had 6 different knee tears and 4 surgeries. I learned how hard it was to be on the sidelines. Whenever I was healthy I never took anytime I had on the field for granted because I knew what it was like to not be able to play the game that I loved. I lost a total of about four years due to the injuries, surgeries, and recovery times. So when I made it to college, I did not take anything for granted. I not only had regular two hour practices a day, but I also did weightlifting, conditioning sessions with my athletic trainer, and then pre- and post- sessions with the athletic training in order to keep myself and my injuries healthy.  I did not want to let myself down and I definitely did not want to let my teammates down.

What helped you stay disciplined as a student athlete?

Part of being a student athlete is the academics. Academics should be just as important as the sport you are playing. So as much time I spent working on my game, I also spent the same amount, if not more on my studies. I worked extremely hard in college. I made the Dean’s list every year. I also participated in missions trips and social justice trips domestically and internationally. I was just as hard on myself when it came to academics.

What is your biggest fear?

One of my biggest fears is not fulfilling my potential. I never wanted to squander my academics or athletics because I did not waste any of my potential. I continue to push myself every day so I can reach my full potential!

What do you hope to change about the world?

I hope to change people’s attitudes with one smile at a time. I am a positive person who wants to believe the best in people and in the world. I know I cannot clean all the oceans of the world alone. I know I cannot solve world hunger alone. I know I cannot stop all the wars and fighting alone. But maybe by sharing my positivity with the people around me, I can change people’s thinking. Help us care for one another no matter what religion, ethnicity, economic background, gender, or sexuality. Because when we all feel important, then we all feel like we can make a difference. And together, we are stronger. With one smile, you can turn someone’s day around. Simple acts of kindness, is how I choose to try to change the world every single day. Those little acts can help make a great difference when enough people have been touched by kindness.

More About Karli

Karli has coached at the Julie Foudy Sports Leadership Academy (JFSLA) in New Jersey, Illinois, Georgia, and California every summer since 2011. She has worked with girls ages 9-18. At JFSLA, the coaches focus on teaching the girls soccer skills, but also teaching them about leadership on and off the soccer field. Throughout the years, Karli has had the opportunity and privilege to learn under former national players, current professional players, college coaches, and club coaches.

In 2016, Karli was chosen along with nine other JFSLA alumni to represent the United States and the Julie Foudy Sports Leadership Academy in India. This opportunity was funded by the State Department. They were teamed up with Magic Bus, an organization that works with boys and girls in the slums across India. Abroad the JFSLA alumni had the chance to learn more about Magic Bus, visit the slums, and work with boys and girls on and off the soccer field.

“Our coach, Karli, was outstanding. The proof is in the incredible turnaround of our team, which prior to this season had not won a single game!” - SF Sol parent

Shout outs are something that Sol does as a team at the end of each practice and game. It is when all the players have a chance to compliment their team mates about their hard work. I think that shout outs are a great way to notice everyone's hard work and effort. Because games and practices can leave the team disappointed and frustrated at times, it can be hard to channel that in a positive way. Shout outs are a way to do that though and be encouraging to your team mates. When you notice and comment on your team mate's effort and hard work they are giving to the team, it can mean a lot. When I joined Sol 2 seasons ago I thought one of the coolest things were shout outs and the type of environment it makes. Everyone is so kind, fun, and positive toward one another. The soccer team I came from before Sol was a great team but honestly not very kind toward each other. So I thought this was so amazing and a super smart idea. For this reason I told my basketball coach at my school what shout outs were and suggested that the basketball team do it at the end of each practice and game too. She loved the idea and now we do it at basketball all the time. I truly do think that it has brought the team together more and made everyone a little more kind. With shout outs no one leaves the field (or court) mad at each other. Instead we remember how hard we all worked and that any mistakes made will help us in the future. Shout outs have changed the way I play soccer, and I think I could easily say it has changed many of my team mates.
