Professional Career

Bompastor's professional career began with ESOF Vendée La Roche-sur-Yon in 2000. She scored seven goals over her two years with the club before moving to Montpellier HSC in 2002.

At Montpellier, Bompastor blossomed and scored 38 goals over four seasons while helping the club win league titles in 2004 and 2005, as well as the Challenge de France (women's version of the Coupe de France).

Olympique Lyonnais was the next destination for Bompastor, for whom she joined in the summer of 2006. She became an important part of the squads that won back-to-back league titles in 2007 and 2008, and of the squad that won the Challenge de France in 2008. This gave her six titles in a span of four years, equal to teammates Camille Abily and Élodie Thomis who were also a part of the same Montpellier squad Bompastor previously had played for.

On 24 September 2008, Bompastor was selected to join the new United States-based women's soccer league, Women's Professional Soccer, after her American playing rights were chosen by Washington Freedom in the 2008 WPS International Draft. Her Olympique Lyonnais teammate Louisa Necib was also chosen by the Freedom. In the 2009 Women's Professional Soccer season, Bompastor appeared in 19 games (all starts, 1709 total minutes) and scored four goals with six assists. Following the conclusion of the season, she was loaned to D1 Féminine side Paris Saint-Germain.

Famous quotes containing the words career and/or professional:

    Whether lawyer, politician or executive, the American who knows what’s good for his career seeks an institutional rather than an individual identity. He becomes the man from NBC or IBM. The institutional imprint furnishes him with pension, meaning, proofs of existence. A man without a company name is a man without a country.
    Lewis H. Lapham (b. 1935)

    As a scientist I’m afraid I’m a professional skeptic who doubts everything, even the certainties.
    Karl Brown (1897–1990)
