Team Info

The TSC Flames kicked off with an undefeated 2019 season and have continued to be successful every year since, climbing the ICSL from Division 5 to Division 1. This 2010 team finished third in Division 1 in 2021, and competed well in several tournaments. The Flames kept their skills sharp in the 2022 XL Sports winter league and look forward to getting back outside for the ICSL spring season.

We are a grassroots affordable club that competes and constantly pushes our kids to be competitive.  We are a three-team sports club, as it's called.  We feel it's important for the kids to see and play all sports but we have optional soccer year-round for our team.  Fall is the most important season which is mandatory for us.  At other times of the year, we participate in different fun leagues or tournaments, like the Wildwood Beach Blast.

Coach Info

Paul Gilliam

My goal in coaching is to instill a love of soccer in my players. I believe you can enjoy soccer at many levels, and while I push the team to perform at the highest levels they can, and have been successful moving them from division 5 to division 1, I put the most emphasis on effort. I'm confident that if you asked any of the girls on the team what I care about most, the answer will not be winning, but how much effort they put into each game and the respect they show for everyone on the pitch.
