Overview

2015 New England Class A Semi-Finalist
2009 and 2010 New England Class A Quarter-Finalists

Taft’s girls’ soccer program has been a part of Taft Athletics for more than 30 years. The varsity team competes in the Western New England Prep School Class A League and has had many appearances in the New England Finals in its history, including four New England titles.

The team's goal is to prepare all girls that put on a Taft jersey to play soccer at the highest level. A focus is put on technical development, tactical awareness, and emotional maturation everyday. All Taft players will develop in all three facets every season so the team will achieve at the highest levels of New England soccer. The importance on progress and process translates into determination, grit, and improvement in all facets of a player's life, not just on the soccer field. Taft soccer alumnae are prepared to succeed, both in skills and attitude, at the collegiate level and beyond.

The Taft soccer program has placed many players in some of the top programs in the country on the DI and DIII levels. To continue their athletic careers in the past five years, alumnae have chosen Carnegie Mellon, Colby, Colorado College, Connecticut College, Dartmouth, Franklin & Marshall, Hamilton, Lehigh, Middlebury, Occidental, Penn State, Sewanee, St. Lawrence, Union, and Williams.
