Chilliwack’s Jordyn Huitema signs with Wasserman sports agency

The teenager has opted to pursue professional soccer opportunities rather than go to university.

Chilliwack’s Jordyn Huitema is saying no to university and yes to professional soccer.

The 17 year old has signed with the Wasserman sports agency. Wasserman will now represent the Canadian national teamer in all of her on and off field pursuits.

“We are thrilled to have Jordyn join our group of exceptional athletes at TeamWass,” said Spencer Wadsworth, Wasserman’s Vice President of Global Soccer. “We’re looking forward to helping Jordyn navigate through her professional career and are excited to support her goals both on and off the field.”

Huitema is one of the most highly-regarded young players in the world and should be a key player for the Canadian national women’s team for a long time to come.

The teenager has represented Canada’s top team 11 times already in her young career.

She earned the Golden Boot as top goal scorer at last year’s CONCACAF U-20 Women’s Championship and helped Canada qualify for the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup in France. She’s expected to join the senior squad in Portugal next month to potentially play in the Algarve Cup.

Huitema has already dipped her toes into the pro pool, playing twice for Paris Saint-Germain at the 2018 International Champions Cup.

“I couldn’t be more excited to begin this next chapter and start my professional career with Wasserman,” Huitema said. “This is the first step in what I hope to be a successful and long career, and I can’t wait to get started.”

Wasserman’s stable of female soccer clients includes Alex Morgan, Megan Rapinoe, Tobin Heath, Lindsey Horan and Mallory Pugh, as well as retired soccer legends Mia Hamm and Abby Wambach.
