Founder and Technical Director
I want to share with you some information about me. I started to play soccer professionally at an early age at @wehdat and @alahli clubs in Jordan. Coaching was one of my interests when I was 18, so I started my career coaching different teams and I established few soccer academies. I am a teacher since 2010 and became a certified teacher in Alberta, Canada in 2020. Besides my degree of Bachelor of Education and Bachelor of Arts, I have a certificate and a licence of a Certified Principal from the Ministery of Education and the University of Alberta. I have a wide and various experience in coaching in Edmonton such as Africa Center, Big Brothers and Big Sisters, Edmonton Public Schools, MAC School, Dunluce, Lorelei, South Clareview, Huda Soccer Academy, AL Mustafa Academy, Dar Sunnah and Action for Healthy Communities. I work in Free Play for Kids as one of the soccer coaches for the 3rd year. I work also in a company that is organized to scout players in Dubai. Besides that I have several connection with many professional players, clubs, coaches, agencies around the world. I coached thousands of boys and girls players over the years of my career and I'm still learning as I'm a life long learner. I have the B Diploma and the C Licence from Canada Soccer and I'm looking forward to obtain more along the way to keep developing my skills to serve better in my position as a Founder and Technical Director at Royal Edmonton Soccer Club. I'll share my expertise with RESC SC to give the chance for players to play with the top league in Edmonton, provide an opportunity for coaches to grow in their career and for parents to help their kids find their way in sport to be professional players in the future (playing in top teams when they grow or play in a university and get scholarship). I'm happy and glad to meet and greet any player at RESC SC and we'll work closely to develop skills and build confidence.

Hello! My name is Nimrat, this will be my first year helping for RESC SC! I’ve played various levels of soccer for 7 years. Having experience with community and club. I’ve coached for around 2 years with EMSA, working with younger age groups. I hope that I can gain more experience and learn more with this new opportunity! As a very social person, I love being in control and leading. Growing up in leadership and public speaking has always been a strong point for me. I have no problems voicing my concerns and what I stand for. But as far as being serious when it comes to playing, I enjoy having fun and make practices more engaging when it comes to having fun and learning. I believe that having a strong mentor is a big part in the player you can become. Academically, I’ve been in the cogito program since kindergarten and I take my studies very seriously. I’ve ran a wide majority of clubs at my previous school. I started a debate club, ran the news and announcements team, and was student advocate. I also achieved a major award in my last year at my junior high school, the Edith Rogers award and the citizenship award. Leaning towards my athletic side, I’ve been engaged in a variety of sports in my junior high time. Playing soccer has always been in my life, however I also play volleyball, basketball, and recently, flag football. For me it’s very important to keep a balance between social, academic, and athletic life.
