Charmaine Hooper: Soccer


Charmaine Hooper, Captain of the Canadian Women's Soccer Team has seen the growth of women's soccer first hand. From playing with boys in Zambia as a child, to being part of one of the first organized girl's team in Ottawa, Charmaine has proven to be one of Canada's greatest ambassadors of the game. At 34, she still leads Team Canada in career goals and is holding her own with women nearly 20 years her junior. Charmaine splits her time between the national team and her professional American team the Atlanta Beat, and is at a place in her life where she never would have dreamed - making a living player soccer.
