ABOUT US:

Founder/Director Taylor Thames is currently the Assistant Coach at Army West Point for the men’s soccer program. He has over 10 years of Division I coaching experience and played Division I soccer for the University of Delaware.

We will be taking every precaution to protect the wellness and safety of the goalkeepers as we return to the fields. Some extra measures we will be taking are 6:1 staff ratio, gloves/masks (coach), minimal-no contact during sessions, & sanitizing equipment before/after sessions.
