Prior to joining the Eagles' coaching staff, Calder served as the women's soccer head coach for Boca Raton Christian School. His teams qualified for the state playoffs in thirteen of the sixteen years that he led the team. Along the way, Boca Christian garnered eight district trophies and advanced to the state "Sweet 16" on six occasions. The years of excellence were highlighted in 2016 when the team advanced to the FHSAA Region 3 Championship. In that same span, Calder helped to develop more than 40 players who earned All-County honors for their accomplishments on the soccer pitch.
Other coaching experiences include numerous positions on staff with competitive soccer clubs such as AC Delray, Amelia Island SC, and, most notably, the FC Barcelona Escola-Academy in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
"I believe that God has led a uniquely gifted coach in Greg Calder to our campus to continue this tradition of success," Jones continued. "His outstanding track record of on-field performance coupled with his passion for discipling young people through the platform of athletics made him a perfect fit for TBC. This is a great day for women's soccer at Trinity Baptist College!"
As a player, Calder competed collegiately at Palm Beach Atlantic University. While there, he set the PBAU record for assists in a season by a freshman (17). By the end of his sophomore year, he had accumulated 13 goals and 28 assists while helping lead the team to a NCCAA Regional Championship and a spot in the National Tournament. He finished his last two years at PBAU with his teams making it to the NCCAA Regional Championship matches, and he was selected to the All-Region team both years. As a senior, Calder was also chosen by his teammates to be a team captain.
"I would like to thank the members of the TBC search committee, President Heavener, and Athletics Director John D. Jones for giving me this opportunity," said Coach Calder. "I am grateful for inheriting a women's soccer program that has a history of being one of the top NCCAA teams in the nation. My goal is for Trinity Baptist College to be one of the best places to play in the nation and for all of our student-athletes on our women's soccer team to be inspired to pursue excellence in the classroom, on the field, and in every aspect of life."
