We invest in your female athlete beyond the field and tailor their experience unique to them. We don’t just motivate players; we take them to the next level.

We have a deep desire to change the face of sports and that is to focus on females only giving them the same advantages that are out there while also being more inclusive.

We know the hard work will pay off and nothing makes us happier, than seeing their confidence build and the smiles on their faces.

Sam Horan Saves The Day Specialist Triad Athletes San Diego Girls Lacrosse

Sam Horan

"Saves the Day" Specialist (aka Goalie Coach)

Coach Sam is our dedicated Goalie coach, training our female athletes on technique and Game IQ and being a mentor on and off the field. A position that is often overlooked by Media, when in fact it is probably the most important role on the field as the eyes and ears.

"To sell the goalie position to your team, there has to be a reciprocated level of trust between the defenders and the goalie. If you have trust in your defenders and prove to them that you can make the low angle saves and saves on outside shots, they will gain the confidence they need to force their attacker to those worse shots." - Coach Sam

Coach Sam currently attends SDSU where her major is in Kinesiology pre-PT. Her biggest honor in 2022, was being nominated Team Captain for the Aztecs Women's Lacrosse team.

“My goal is to work on the athlete's confidence in the goal and build their love for the game!”
