Welcome to GCU Women’s Club Soccer

GCU Women’s Club Soccer has become one of the fastest growing club soccer programs in the nation in just six years of existence. The Lopes are members of the Southwest Soccer Conference (SSC) and compete in the West Coast Soccer Association.  The Lopes’ travel team usually plays a competitive fall season schedule, but this past season, their regular season was moved to the spring, with matches at GCU’s excellent facilities, and games or tournaments throughout the southwestern states.

If you are a student who is looking to continue developing athletic abilities and a passion for the sport, our GCU Women’s Club Soccer is for you. Our growth and success have given us the chance to host our own 8v8 tournaments to help enhance the talents of our athletes year-round.

The Lopes completed their first season in the SSC in 2019-20 with impressive wins over Arizona State University, Ottawa University and Arizona Christian University while nearly reaching the postseason. GCU Club Women’s Soccer works with top coaches, provides team equipment and uniforms, and plays on some of the Southwest’s best facilities.

We are a year-round program and always welcome new, motivated athletes.

Hannah Bolton begins her fourth year as head coach of women’s club soccer at GCU. Bolton is originally from Junction City, Oregon, and graduated Grand Canyon University with a bachelors degree in exercise and sports performance and is currently pursuing her Master’s in Business Administration with an emphasis in Sports Business.

Bolton comes from a strong athletic and coaching background. Bolton grew up playing club soccer for the Eugene Timbers FC, where she later returned to coach youth teams ranging from U-11 to U-16 from 2014-16. As a freshman, Bolton attended Portland State University where she ran cross country and track for 2013-14 season. Bolton then attended Lane Community College in Eugene, Oregon, playing soccer for the Titans for 2014-15 seasons. During her time at LCC, Bolton was captain on the squad that won the Northwest Athletic Conference Southern Region Championships in 2015.

After her time at the community college level, Bolton transferred to GCU in 2016, where she played and coached for the GCU Women’s Club Soccer program from 2016 through 2018. Bolton’s playing career did not end there, since she played in the inaugural season for FC Arizona’s WPSL semi-professional league and earned accolades as the first WPSL West Region All-Conference Team player for the club in 2019. Bolton’s coaching experiences in Arizona range from coaching youth soccer for Phoenix Rising FC to serving as the varsity assistant coach for Hamilton High School, helping lead them to a 2nd place finish in the Arizona 6A State Championships in 2020. Hannah also completed her U.S. Soccer National D Coaching License.
