Biography:

Motivational Speaker Sydney Leroux is a talented soccer player who plays professionally for the Western New York Flash in the National Women’s Soccer League. In 2012, Sydney scored an astounding 5 goals in a CONCACAF Olympic qualifying match for the United States Women’s National team. The brilliant performance catapulted Sydney to superstardom and tied the record for most goals scored by a USWNT member in a single game. That year she was the youngest member of the USWNT that won the Gold Medal at the Olympic Games in London. Sydney is touted as a clever goal scorer able to find the net as a starter or off the bench. In September of 2014, she became the first female brand ambassador for BODYARMOR SuperDrink. Syndey was a member of the USWNT that won the 2015 FIFA World Cup title, the third World Cup title in USWNT history.

Motivational Speaker Sydney Leroux holds duel citizenship in both the U.S. and Canada. She was born in Canada and lived there until she was 15. In 2005, she played professionally for the Vancouver Whitecaps in the W-League. Following the seasons, Sydney moved to Arizona to pursue her dreams of playing for the USWNT. She lived with host families during her junior and senior year of high school before earning a scholarship to play soccer at UCLA. Sydney had to grow up fast and learned valuable lessons while living apart from her beloved family.

At UCLA, Sydney played under future USWNT head coach Jill Ellis for the first 2 years of her college career. She lead the team in scoring 3 straight seasons from 2009-2011 and recorded 23 game-winning goals during her college career. After college she returned to the Vancouver Whitecaps a little older and a lot wiser. The team made a deep run into the W-League playoffs thanks to Sydney’s goal scoring abilities. She was later named W-League Rookie of the Year for the 2011 season.

After her Gold Medal run with the USWNT in 2012, Motivational Speaker Sydney Leroux returned to the States to play in the newly created National Women’s Soccer League for the Boston Breakers. She spent the 2014 season with the Seattle Reign FC before being traded to the Western New York Flash in early 2015.

Off the pitch, Sydney has been equally busy. She was the focus of a special ESPN feature entitled Living Her Dream, which profiled her evolution as an international soccer player. In October 2013, she was interviewed for the ESPNW short feature, Q&A With Sydney Leroux and was profiled in Fox Soccer Exclusive: Sydney Leroux for Fox Soccer Channel. Her lovable personality and athletic ability has afforded her endorsements from top companies including Nike, Beats by Dre and Nestle Nesquik.
