LEXINGTON, KY (April 6th, 2022) Kings Hammer Bluegrass is excited to announce Megan Adkins as the Girl’s Academy Program Director. Megan has been heavily involved in youth soccer development, coaching teams at the YMCA, Lexington Youth Soccer Association, Woodford Youth Soccer Association, and Commonwealth Soccer Club. She has also run multiple youth soccer camps in the area.
Megan most recently served as the Executive Director of Commonwealth Soccer Club where she has been coaching the last six years. She also spent three years serving as the Varsity Girls Assistant Head Coach for Lexington Catholic High School where she helped lead the team to two consecutive State Championship Games. She is currently the Head Girls Coach at Frederick Douglass High School where she has laid a foundation for both academic and athletic success. Megan was named the 11th Region Coach of the year in her second year at Frederick Douglass High School. She is also a member of the partnership group that opened the new indoor soccer facility, The Pitch, inside Lexington Athletic Club.
Megan is the proud mother of four children, three daughters and a son who are all involved in Club soccer amongst other activities. In her spare time Megan is a devoted member of her church, an avid WVU Mountaineer fan, and stays true to her Lexington roots by cheering on her beloved Wildcats.
“I am thrilled and honored to be joining the Kings Hammer organization, helping to continue their long-standing tradition of soccer development and success is very important to me. I am excited about the future of Kings Hammer in Lexington and the opportunities for youth soccer players for all ages and skill levels. It is an exciting time for soccer players and families and I’m truly thankful for Kings Hammer giving me this opportunity,” said Megan Adkins.
“We are very fortunate to add someone of Megan’s caliber to the Kings Hammer Bluegrass family. Megan has extensive knowledge of the game and understands the Bluegrass soccer community inside and out. We are excited to watch Megan take the girls academy at Kings Hammer Bluegrass to the next level. Adding Megan to the already strong leadership group that we have in the Bluegrass community is another positive step to separate ourselves from the competition,” stated Paul Nicholson, Kings Hammer Technical Director.
More information on Kings Hammer Bluegrass tryouts will be released in the coming weeks.
