Founded in 2021, the Florida Poly Women's Club Soccer Team is composed of undergraduate
and graduate students with backgrounds in competitive soccer at the high school level
The team will compete among the nation’s premier institutions in the Southeast Collegiate Soccer Alliance. Soccer brings together female students from across all Florida Poly disciplines to compete in a fun, supportive, and engaging environment.
Florida Poly Women's Soccer provides students an opportunity to play soccer at a level that promotes a balance of athletic, academic, and social life. As a team, female soccer players have the opportunity to create (and score!) goals in a competitive environment of like-minded individuals. If you have a passion for soccer or would like to try a new sport, contact us for more information.
We are committed to promoting a positive and engaging team community, personal growth, and skill development that parallels the self-discipline, collaboration, and perseverance that is found in the rigor of all Florida Poly majors. We provide both a competitive and supportive environment that allows our members to gain opportunities and build relationships that enhance their university experience. Team members practice habits that demonstrate excellence in the classroom and on in the field in practice, scrimmages and competition. Our success as an organization comes directly from the quality of experiences, bonds that evolve, and the depth of relationships formed within and beyond the course of a season. Always united.
Florida Poly Women’s Club Soccer seeks students who share a love for science, tech, math, people, and soccer (in any order), and who would like to build character just as much as friendships outside of academics. Additional benefits to playing soccer include physical fitness, stress relief, the opportunity to be involved on campus, and connections to other students.
Florida Poly female students of all soccer skill levels are welcome to come train with us, and those interested in trying out and competing with us against other universities should submit this form.
Players are expected to provide their own cleats, socks, practice clothing, shin guards, and water bottle.
Practice dates and times are TBD but will take place on the intramural field next to the Student Development Center.
Taylor Cool enters his first season as Florida Poly’s Women's Club Soccer coach. He has over 10 years of coaching experience.
A recruited college athlete, Cool experienced a career-ending injury that ultimately led him to continue pursuing his soccer passion through coaching. He has worked with students at the middle school, high school, and college levels, most recently at the University of St. Francis, where he focused on recruiting, player development, and strength and conditioning.
Cool empowers his players to become the best individual, as well as the best player, possible. He strives for his players to be excellent off the field as students and community members. On the field, he focuses on a defensive approach that allows for a fast and exciting style of play.
Cool earned a bachelor's degree in sport administration from Ball State University. He currently also works in the casting department for the Walt Disney Company. Cool resides in Winter Haven, Florida with his wife, Jen, and their three children, Tyson, Evelynn, and Ellerie.
