Amanda - Redding, CA Store Manager

Amanda is the store Manager for our Redding location. She has been playing soccer since 1992; She started out playing at the recreation level and soon moved up to Division 1. It was a great experience to be on the first Missfit team, where Steve Hoxie and Mark Starr were able to train and assist her developing her soccer skills so she could continue to move onto the college level. Amanda received a scholarship and was recruited to play for Simpson University for two years. Next she traveled internationally which included the opportunity to spent time in Germany. Sadly, due to timing issues Amanda just barely missed the opportunity to watch the Woman's World Cup, before she moved back to the Redding. She enthusiastically continued to be part of the soccer world by coaching local junior and high school teams. It is very exiting to Amanda when she hears about local young athletes being scouted. Amanda stays connected with her soccer community by helping the Missfit club and playing in adult leagues every week. Soccer is a part vital part of Amanda’s life and she genuinely loves the Sport.
