Ellery Gould is the second head coach in the history of the Caltech women's soccer program. A 2012 graduate of Bowdoin College, Gould spent most of her coaching career on the Polar Bears' staff prior to her arrival in Pasadena. One of the most decorated players in Bowdoin women's soccer history, Gould led the Polar Bears in scoring throughout each of her four seasons and is now set to bring that same attacking mindset to Caltech where she will be tasked with improving the young and talented women's soccer team. She was named a "Rising Star" in women's soccer coaching by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America and in 2018 she was promoted to associate head coach at Bowdoin.
After graduating Bowdoin with a double-major in Environmental Studies and Spanish, Gould played professionally in Sweden with Ragsveds IF in the Norrettan Division I league. In 2013, she was the lead coach for Soccer Without Borders in Granada, Nicaragua, a non-profit organization providing opportunities for young girls to play soccer and learn important life skills. Gould has also participated in the Inter-American Women’s Exchange program, which promoted women’s soccer in the country with clinics for local girls and coaches. More recently, Gould competed for Durham (U.K.) University while pursuing her Master's of Education, leading the team to a league championship. She has also coached several soccer camps at Bowdoin and Boston College.
