Becky Kirkham appointed as Lakewood Soccer Girl's Technical Lead

Becky started coaching when she was in University and since then, has coached every age group from Kinder soccer through to High School soccer. In the spring of 2023 she coached four   teams; Aurora U17 girls, Astra U9 development, Adelaide Park U9 Boys and Adelaide Park U9 Girls community teams.

Becky has been heavily involved in soccer in the grassroots programs with both girls teams and boys teams in Adelaide Park and South Nutana Park for the last five years. Her core group of girls are all aging out of community and heading into zone for U11 this fall. She has had the opportunity to coach along-side Tony Pham, a former Huskie soccer player.

Becky has completed all certifications up to and including the C-Licence training course, with expected C-License completion in the fall of 2023.

Becky began playing soccer at the age of 13. She was immediately picked up to play with SUFC (now SUSC) under the guidance of Huw Morris for years in her youth as a Keeper. She also played for Tom LaPointe and played alongside some of the greats as they attended a staggering five consecutive National Championships. Becky played on the Provincial Team spanning through the age groups of U15-U19. She attended and medalled as the starting Keeper for Team Sask at the 2001 Canada Games under the guidance of Colin Melnyk.

Becky attended University of Saskatchewan and played on scholarship with the Huskies as the starting Keeper for the full five seasons from the fall of 2001 to the fall of 2005. She trained for a short time with the National team in 2002 and made the CIS All Star team twice in her five years with the University. 

After graduating with a Bachelor of Education and Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology, Becky became a Physical Education teacher with Saskatoon Public Schools. During this time, she was able to assist in teaching and running the Soccer Academy for nine years from 2006-2015 alongside Bryce Chapman. She has played soccer (as well as basketball and baseball) on and off for her own enjoyment throughout her adult years.

Becky considers her coaching philosophy to be similar to her teaching philosophy which is to "help create kind, caring, compassionate, contributing members of our community". As a coach Becky would hope "to help each athlete reach their full potential as I help shape kind, caring, passionate, competitive soccer players and instill a lifelong love of the game."

Outside of soccer, Becky is a teacher at Walter Murray. Becky and her husband have a busy family with four heavily involved children, where the parents try to be involved when they can to ensure they have a positive experience and to give back to the sports that brought them so much joy in their youth.
