Football Ontario Announces Joshuah Brown as Head Coach and Jamie Le as General Manager for Team Ontario Black

Hamilton, Ontario – Football Ontario, the provincial governing body for football in Ontario, is proud to announce the hiring of Joshuah Brown and Jamie Le, Head Coach and General Manager for Team Ontario U18 Women’s Tackle – Team Black. 

For the second year in a row, Football Ontario is entering two teams into the U18 Women’s Tackle National Championship, Team Red and Team Black. This provides 44 athletes and 20 coaches the opportunity to compete in a National Championship, develop their athletic talents among the top athletes in the country, and forge a path for other women and girls in sport. 

Joshuah Brown is currently the Team Ontario U14 Men’s Tackle Defensive Coordinator. He played football at the University of Waterloo, and was invited to the CFL Regional Combine in 2020. As a graduate student at St. Francis-Xavier University, he was a Graduate Assistant Coach and Assistant Defensive Line Coach from 2022-2023. He is currently a teacher and the Special Teams Coordinator at Trinity College School, as well as the Founder of Dream Academy – a training program for athletes to develop their athletic skills and mental performance. 

“I’m very excited for the opportunity Emily, Carlie and Aaron have given me. With great opportunities come great tasks. My goal is to provoke change in women’s football, continue developing the brand of football in Ontario and most importantly mentoring young student athletes to become better leaders in our community. Our goal is to win gold, and our goal is to see these young women develop into great leaders for our sport,” Joshua says. “The only way to make progress is by taking action,” (Kyrie Irving).

Jamie Le began playing 7v7 flag football at Central Peel Secondary School in Brampton and continued playing 5v5 and 11v11 flag football on the University of Toronto’s Women’s Flag Football Program. From 2019 to 2023, Jamie served as the Team President for the UofT team and spearheaded the program’s official becoming of Sport and Recreation Club status in 2024. Since then, her efforts behind the scenes of the UofT program has inspired her passion to succeed managerial positions in the sports industry. Accomplishing her previous role as General Manager for Team Ontario Black’s U18 Women’s Tackle Team, she lead the team to Gold in the 2023 Cummings Division at the National Championships in Ottawa. Jamie will be returning as General Manager for Team Ontario Black’s team for her second season in 2024. She is determined to support the team and is excited to represent Football Ontario for another successful season. 

Jamie says, “Since last season, I have been reminiscing about the memories and meaningful connections I have built with the coaches and athletes. I am so excited to have been selected again for Team Black this 2024 season. What inspires me the most are the high performance athletes that I get to support on and off the field, as well as the coaches who bring unconditional drive and determination, day and night. Being with Football Ontario is the perfect opportunity where I get to advocate the growth of women’s football, all while doing what I love. I look forward to meeting new and returning athletes and coaches, and to bringing home another championship!”

“As we enter the 2024 high-performance football season, I am thrilled to announce Joshuah Brown as the Head Coach and Jamie Le as the General Manager of Team Ontario U18 Women’s Tackle – Team Black. Together, we are poised to elevate our provincial women’s tackle program and proudly represent Ontario by finishing as repeat Cummings Division champions at the U18 Women’s Tackle National Championship in Fredericton,” says Emily Todd, Director of Development and Administration.
