Anita Caro Salve

U13 Girls Coach


Anita is from Australia and has played football since she was 10 years old. She was later introduced to futsal, through her husband who is a professional player and coach, but her passion has always been football.

Anita has played football at many different levels and understands first-hand the difficulties that girls and women face within the football industry. She made a record for the youngest female player to play for her local women’s senior team.

She is also well known for her bullet shots and has played as a right-winger for most of her career but can adapt and play any position required.

Anita has coached numerous teams in Australia, winning several titles. As she is studying psychology, she looks to invest in not just the skill of the players but their overall health and well-being.

Since arriving in the UAE in 2020, Anita has played with some players from the UAE National women’s team and has a passion for advancing girls and women’s football in the nation.
