Club history

The Boston Bolts started with four girls teams in 1986. Now the oldest soccer club in Massachusetts, the Bolts attracted the finest coaches and players in the Boston area, and rapidly grew to a coed club of national recognition. In 1994, the girls U19 Bolts captured the USYSA National Championship title, becoming the first and only girls team from Massachusetts to win the prestigious national title. In 2005, the boys U15 Bolts became the first and only Massachusetts boys team to win the title. In its tenure, Bolts teams have earned a spot of national prominence winning more state, regional and national cup competitions, and also other national and international showcase tournaments such as Score at the Shore, the Disney Showcase, Dallas Cup and Surf Cup, than any other Massachusetts team.

The club has been led by a series of recognized soccer figures, such as John Burrill, past executive director of Mass Youth Soccer; Ed Kelly, Head Men's Coach at Boston College; John Kerr, Head Men's Coach at Duke University; John Willet, former president; and current CEO, Brian Ainscough.
