Our Story

The SoccerGrlProbs team consists of Long Island natives Alanna Locast '12, Shannon Fay '14 and Carly Beyar '14, who are all former teammates on the Fairfield University Division 1 Women’s Soccer team. While in between practices during preseason of August 2011, the girls and their team were joking around about the struggles of being female soccer players. They spontaneously decided to create a Twitter handle as a comedic outlet to share their inner thoughts and funny moments about the everyday life of a female athlete. Their team told past teammates, friends and coaches about the Twitter, and within weeks their following grew to hundreds and then thousands. Twitter followers then began requesting a YouTube video to be created. In February of 2012, they created their first video, "Sh*t Soccer Girls Say" that tallied over ONE MILLION views in 3 days! Today, SGP has produced over 140 videos that have accumulated over 23+ million views and 49+ million minutes watched. What initially started as a comedic venting outlet, became a lifestyle brand with the release of their first t-shirt.

Being female athletes our whole lives, we have felt and experienced the societal pressures placed on females in today's world. Females have been made afraid to be "too strong", or "not pretty enough", or "too rough", or "not skinny enough". It's time for all the stigmas to end. It has taken us each some time, but we've learned what it feels like to be confident and comfortable with ourselves; to have a strong inner foundation that doesn't care if it's different and to be proud of it. This is what we want to share with the world. We want to empower young girls who are growing up playing sports like we once did. We make an honest effort every single day to embrace our problems, laugh at ourselves daily, and be proud of what makes us female athletes. And through doing this, and being as genuine and real as we possibly can be, we hope to lead the way through @SoccerGrlProbs, for others to do the same. Never hide what makes you stand out in the world.

We have made it our mission to support and encourage the well-being and positive self-image of young female athletes everywhere. We aim to inspire the idea of a strong, confident, positive female athlete who is comfortable in her own skin. We want to empower young female athletes to build a strong inner foundation and to have the confidence to proudly grow into the women they will become. Through our lifestyle brand, we continue to deliver authentic and original content as a means to establish a sense of unity and sisterhood in the female soccer community.

Shannon  Fay #22


Hometown: Sayville, NY
Favorite Player: Abby Wambach
 

Alanna Locast #13


Hometown: Seaford, NY
Favorite Player: Ali Krieger

With a Bachelors in Biology and a Masters in Exercise Physiology, it only makes sense that Alanna embarrasses herself on camera in referee costumes with her co-workers for a living. She follows more cute animals on Instagram than she does human beings (including an unnecessarily absurd amount of French Bulldog accounts.) Shonda Rhimes runs her Thursday nights and Meredith Grey is her spirit animal. If she has mastered anything, it’s training like a professional athlete and eating like a third grader.
