Spurs FC and Board of Directors

The soccer club formerly known as Tottenham Hotspur East Bay (THEB) has become the newly independent Spurs FC. While the name has changed, our commitment to our mission remains constant: to support youth soccer players to achieve their full potential by providing a holistic, integrated program that develops players and coaches and educates parents in a positive, membership-driven community. This holds true across our four programs, which offer opportunities for youth ages 3-18 to play at a level that suits them as individuals, from recreational to competitive.

The new Spurs FC will continue to operate as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, governed by a recently elected parent Board of Directors. As a membership-driven club, input from our community of players, families, and coaches guides our decision-making and plays a vital role in the club’s culture.

Our racially and socioeconomically diverse teams, coaching staff, and leadership speak to our commitment to inclusivity and community.

Her sons, Logan (03B) and Avery (05B) play on competitive teams now, Cal (12B) just moved from the recreational program to a pre-comp team this year and Zeta (15G) will be joining Lil’ Spurs for the first time this winter. She has been a team manager (and will continue to be), the Manager Coordinator for the club, and a volunteer in some capacity throughout the last five years. By day, Kelly is the Deputy Chief of the National Litigation Support Team of The Federal Defender Organization where she designs and implements training programs for court appointed criminal defense attorneys who represent indigent clients. She works on developing national policies in the management of electronic information and speaks at conferences around the country on strategies for dealing with complex data. While she fell in love with running and yoga as an adult, she never played any sports growing up and one day hopes to learn all the rules of soccer since her family is passionate about the sport.
