Hope and Health is honoured to put forward Scarlett Sparrow-Felix, a member of Musqueam, as the Vancouver Whitecaps FC Kid Captain in recognition of her personal and team leadership on and off the pitch. Scarlett dedicated personal time throughout the global pandemic to coach and mentor youth, inspiring them through her calm and caring presence and stand out soccer skills and abilities. Scarlett is the granddaughter of the first ever North American Professional Indigenous Soccer player Terry Felix, Terry is a proud Whitecaps FC & Canada men's national team alum and Scarlett is very proud to be playing soccer and following in her grandfather's footsteps.
Scarlett is an amazing role model in terms of her dedication and work ethic, consistently putting in the work to achieve her path of greatness and achieve her dreams. She has displayed a passion for soccer from her early years, starting at six-years-old with Kerrisdale, Vancouver United then moving over to Fusion FC for the past five years, all the while privately training one-on-one with a personal trainer and personal soccer coach. Her hard work and determination never cease to amaze those around her. Scarlett is an inspiration off the field as well, she loves to play the guitar and take weekly lessons and just this past year was an intern on Rock 101, working directly with radio host Robin LaRose on the Robin LaRose show. Scarlett inspires others around her to dream big and work hard; a powerful display of youth leadership in action!
