About Carmelina Moscato


Moscato made her Olympic Games debut for Team Canada in London 2012 and was a member of the bronze medal winning women’s team, playing in every minute of the tournament.


At just 16 years of age, Moscato made her Canadian U-19 National Team debut in 2001. She went on to capture a silver medal at the inaugural 2002 FIFA U-19 Women’s World Championship, playing all six matches, helping Canada reach the final before losing to the United States, and making the tournament all-star team.


Carmelina was a member of three FIFA Women’s World Cup teams (in 2003 and 2011, 2015).


At age 22, she accepted an assistant coaching position at the University of Louisville, but after two years she realized her playing days were not over and rejoined the Canadian National Team in 2009, under Carolina Morace.


She won a W-League title in 2004 with the Vancouver Whitecaps and made a return to the club in 2009 for one more season.


Her university playing days ended with four Big Ten titles and two appearances in the NCAA Final Four with Penn State University. She’s also played professionally for clubs in Italy and Sweden.


Moscato most recently, coached in the Australian National Premier League for the Illawarra Stingrays in New South Wales. She was the co-head coach of Canada's own U15 National Team in 2016 and U-20 National team in 2017. She also held the position as REX Talent Manager for Canada Soccer in 2017. 


From Carmelina...

“I am excited and honoured to be appointed the Technical Director of KNSC. As a proud Canadian who has represented my country, I have a deep sense of pride in working with and developing the next generation of youth players, both as footballers and young Canadians.


Having this role is a massive responsibility; one I take very seriously. We have an opportunity to help shape the lives of our youth both on, and more importantly, off the field, and this is a unique opportunity for that reason.


Together with the board, staff, and players at KNSC, we will continue to add beautiful moments and memories to its already impressive 25 year history. Alignment and connection with our national soccer identity and provincial soccer body will be of utmost importance as we plan to continue pushing standards and boundaries and take this club to new heights.”
