The TASF story is a short one born out of a vision by the Tulsa Athletic and their desire to help kids play soccer for free. When Tulsa Hall of Fame inductee, Nancy McDonald, and Matt Boullt (then Tulsa Athletic Manager) discussed this desire to give back to Tulsa, Nancy had the answer. The Tulsa YMCA had a soccer through education initiative in their YES program which provides free soccer to Tulsa kids grades three through six, as long as they maintained certain criteria.
Nancy and Matt found the role the Tulsa Athletic Soccer Foundation could play in helping Tulsa kids play soccer for free. TASF now provides free shin guards, socks and other resources for all the athletes and volunteer teacher/coaches in the Y program.
