Blazers Women's Soccer Make a Splash with New Head Coach

CMU Blazers Athletics is very pleased to announce the hiring of Jason Moist to the Women's Soccer program for the upcoming 2024/25 fall season. The Winnipeg native is a highly experienced technical coach with a very strong resume of past and current roles coaching in Manitoba.

The recently named 2023 Club Coach of the Year at Bonivital Soccer Club has a wealth of knowledge of the game, following more than thirty years of playing experience himself. He holds Certified National B, Youth, and Youth Goalkeeping licenses through the Canada Soccer Association, and is working on his US National B license as well as Canada National A license, just to name a few. His qualifications jump off the page as much as his resume of current and past coaching roles, which include positions as Technical Coach and Assistant Coach with the Manitoba Soccer Association's Major League Soccer Vancouver Whitecaps Residency/REX program, Technical Coach with Canadian Premier League Valour FC youth academy program, Assistant Coach with the University of Winnipeg Wesmen women's soccer program, and the aforementioned more than fifteen years of head coach experience with Bonivital Soccer Club.

Jason's coaching philosophy is to empower players with the knowledge and skills for a lifetime in the soccer industry through transformational coaching and the four "I's": Idealized influence, Inspirational motivation, Intellectual stimulation, and Individualized consideration, which Blazers Athletics knows will fit perfectly into the culture that the program has cultivated over the past number of seasons under current co-head coaches Cara Isaak and Lianna Bestvater. Isaak and Bestvater will still be involved with the program in associate coaching roles, alongside current goalkeeper coach Lydia Balsillie and recent addition for the futsal season Allison Kolly to create a superstar coaching staff with an incredible diversity and wealth of knowledge of the game.

Excited to make his mark on the MCAC, Jason has already met the team and has been involved in training with the current Blazers' futsal team, who have one more upcoming critical weekend of league play with a trip to the MCAC playoffs on the line in March at Brandon University's Healthy Living Centre. Looking forward to next year, Jason will be on the recruiting trail this spring with the hopes of making a splash in next fall's MCAC outdoor season!
