Club Directors


Kim Brassor is the co-founder of Future Girls Soccer. Having started her soccer journey in Scarborough at the all-girls Scarborough United Soccer Club, she was coached by a steward of the women’s game in Ontario – Al Southard. Returning to the game as a parent coach after she had children, Kim’s passion for the positive impact sports and coaches could have on girls was rekindled.

Kim served on the Ontario Soccer Association Women’s Committee Executive, eventually serving as the committee’s chair in 2014- 15 and authored a book aimed at helping young female soccer players reach their soccer dreams called Reaching for the Rings: A Young Girls Guide to Growing her Game. In 2015 Kim launched Future Girls Soccer, a soccer development program for young girls led by an all-female coaching staff.  
 Having started with one program and 5 coaches led by Ex-CWNT Player Coach Michele, Future Girls now serves over 1,000 soccer girls annually and has almost 40 female coaches serving as exceptional role models across its many programs. With a degree from University of Toronto in Women’s’ Studies and 20 year business career with McDonald’s Restaurants of Canada, Kim’s entrepreneurial drive has seen Future Girls become a community leader – recognized yearly in local Reader’s Choice Awards, most notably winning best kid’s programs and best local sports business association.


Michele Houchen has been a coaching icon of girls grassroots soccer for more than three decades in the Greater Toronto Area. From 1986 – 1991, Coach Michelle was a striker for the Canadian Women’s National Team. Known for her intensity and fearlessness, her coaching tactics, work ethic and dedication to excellence have never wavered. This earned Houchen several appearances with Canada’s National Soccer Team, MVP status for the 1987-1989 CWNT tour team and 3 national championships, 5 provincial championships, 3 Most Valuable Player awards for Ontario and a gold medal at the World Masters Championships.  

Michele Houchen

Coach Michele was inducted into the Oakville Sports Hall of Fame in 2007 and was the first black female to be inducted. Michele’s ability to pass on her love for the game and dedication to inspiring others made her a natural fit to be the technical lead and head coach of Future Girls Soccer. Her commitment to developing the next generation of young aspiring female players has never wavered and is relentless.
  While she commonly refers to herself as the ‘bear,’ anybody who spends time on her field will tell you she is relentless in inspiring her every player in her midst to be the best version of themselves that they can be, on and off the field. Coach Michele was one of the first handful of female coaches in the province to ever earn a Provincial B License. She also won OYSL coach of the year and is a tremendous influence on the many young coaches at Future Girls Soccer. In the daytime Michele is an insurance broker in the Oakville area.


Shelby Steward has had soccer at the root of her existence her entire life. Shelby started playing in Brantford and when the family moved to Oakville she began her many successful years of competitive play with the Toronto Lady Lynx – where at the age of 15 she was selected by the Lynx to attend an Olympic Development Program training camp in Florida. She received scholarship offers from schools such as Brown University and Hawaii Pacific University, and she ultimately chose to play for Brock University to focus on earning a Bachelor of Physical Education and a Bachelor of Education.

After attending Brock, she went overseas to teach and play soccer with the Bedwell Rangers women’s team, which is an affiliate of Arsenal Ladies. Shelby has been an integral part of the success of Future Girls Soccer, using her educational background to develop the Parent and Tot program, the coaches training program and the players evaluation reports, to name but a few of her key business developments initiated at Future Girls. When not playing soccer or coaching Shelby is a Senior Learning Specialist with Telus.
