Liam Stanley was named the Canadian para-soccer player of the year in 2013 and 2014. Stanley is known for his dedication and determination to improve as a player both on and off the field.

At the 2014 America Cup, his defensive abilities were instrumental in helping the team secure a fourth place finish and a berth at the 2015 World Championships.  Stanley was also a member of the world’s team that placed 10th in England.

Stanley made his Team Canada debut in 2011 at age 14 in a 4-2 victory over the U.S. He participated in several sports as a youngster and was five years old when he started playing soccer for Bays United.

Canadian national team coach Drew Ferguson says he is impressed with Stanley’s ability to handle big game pressure.  “He’s able to read the game and get the tackles that win back the ball to help transition into the attack,” said Ferguson.
