On Tuesday, April 5, the head coach Laura Busby announced the addition of Kaylyn Farrel to the Air Force women’s soccer staff, as the former University of Colorado-Colorado Springs star will serve as a volunteer assistant coach for the Falcons. Farrell’s primary focus will be to help develop Air Force goaltenders.

“Kaylyn and I met when we were teammates on the Colorado Pride W-League team in 2015,” Busby said. “She was a phenomenal player and an even better person. She is one of the few goalkeepers I know who is as good with her feet as she is with her hands. I have no doubt that our young goalkeepers will learn of one of the best.”

Farrell joins the Air Force staff after serving as a graduate assistant coach at UCCS following her college playing career. As a starting goalkeeper in the Mountain Lion’s 2018 campaign, Farrell was named RMAC Goalkeeper of the Year and was selected to the United Soccer Coaches All-South Central Region First Team. Prior to UCCS, Farrell played two seasons for Virginia Tech and one season for the University of Washington. At Virginia Tech, Smith ranked second in school history in career goals over average, reaching the Sweet 16 her freshman year and the round of 32 her second year.

Farrell has coached for Pride Soccer Club and Sereno Soccer Club at youth level and has experience as a personal goalkeeping coach for goalkeepers aged 6-18.

Farrell holds a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and a Master of Arts in Counseling and Social Services from UCCS.
