Miami, Florida Jun 1, 2021 - SportsEdTV has named April Heinrichs to its renowned array of senior contributors. Heinrichs is the first female athlete to be inducted into the National Soccer Hall of Fame.

Heinrichs also helped the USWNT to a gold medal in the 1996 Olympics as an assistant coach and to winning the FIFA World Cup in 1999 as a scout. As the head coach, she led the USWNT to a silver medal in the 2000 Olympics, 3rd place in the 2003 FIFA World Cup, and a gold medal in the 2004 Olympics in Athens.
“The impact April Heinrichs’ contributions will make to SportsEdTV and its audiences extend far beyond on-pitch strategy and tactics—her participation underscores our commitment to all sports, gender, race, and station, equally,” added Victor Bergonzoli, CEO of SportsEdTV.
April Heinrichs has served US soccer in numerous coaching, scouting, analysis, and directorial roles throughout her career, furthering her immeasurable contributions to women's soccer.
