imgres A little over a month ago the Jamaican Women’s Football team advanced in the Women’s Caribbean Football Union (CFU) tournament, advancing them to the CONCACAF stage of World Cup qualifying. In doing so, Head Coach, Merron Gordon, set out to improve his staff to be the first Jamaican Women’s team to qualify for the World Cup. SSP affiliate, Hue Menzies – Executive Director of FKK, was appointed Technical Coach of the team. Among Coach Gordon’s requests, was that for a Physical Trainer/Fitness Coach. Menzies quickly brought in SSP’s, Will Hitzelberger.

Hitzelberger leaves with the team on October 7th, to continue camp in a climate closer to that of the games.
