Manisha is extremely knowledgeable within the game, but brings a different unique element to her coaching approach with her education background and expertise. All at the club recognise her patience, tolerance and genuine passion and love for not only the game, but for all her young players. The work she is doing in our community club, at grass roots, as well as our local community in engaging hard to reach families and children into being active, is phenomenal.
“Manisha was amazing in her delivery of how racism impacts football and in society, the students were engaged and felt that they had a real understanding of the issues that Black people face in many areas of life. She also give a motivation work shop to the girls football team and despite the sexism that may hamper their progress she gave them tools to overcome the negativity they faced and how to keep moving forward, and allowing their game (football) to speak for them. I would highly recommend Manisha for PSHE and motivational workshops in your school.”
Senthamarai Macdonald, PSHE lead teacher, Clacton County High School
“I can’t say enough about the excellent work that Manisha has done and achieved in promoting women’s football and coaching. Manisha is inspiring to all with her bubbly personality a great role model to so many young people looking to pursue a career in football. Manisha was invited as a guest speaker at our diversity conference for Kent Police, the audience found her to be very interactive and engaging throughout her presentation. This allowed healthy discussion around the topic matter of perceptions”
Suki Randhawa Kent Police, Diversity Training Team
“Southwest United Soccer Club was pleased to have Manisha Tailor and Cosmo Soccer host our soccer camp. Our girls program makes up over sixty percent of our membership. Unfortunately, in Edmonton there are very few elite level female trainers. It was a pleasure to have Manisha, for the players, coaches and parents. Manisha was involved, engaged, and enthusiastic about coaching and took a genuine interest in the players. Her teaching and coaching skills were obvious from the beginning. Players benefited greatly from her coaching style. The feedback over the past couple weeks since the camp has been overwhelmingly positive, we would not hesitate to have Manisha and Cosmo Soccer attend our Southwest United Camp in the future”.
Stan Wongus, Vice President, Southwest United Soccer – Canada
“The session with Manisha was pivotal in enhancing my understanding of the fundamental pillars governing football coaching.”

“The session made me realise that I need to start asking more questions. For example, before moving onto the next drills ask the players what they gained from it and how they could improve themselves”
