Renard flew to mainland France for a trial at Clairefontaine at age 15 but was not accepted into the national training program. She subsequently took the train to Lyon and, after a more successful trial, landed a spot with Lyon. She left Martinique to permanently live in Lyon at the age of sixteen.
