Amenity Athletics is thrilled to have Tim Callahan as our League Director. Tim has always had a passion for sports and coaching. As a 3-sport athlete in high school, Tim went on to play college soccer (Southeastern) & college basketball (Trinity College). After college Tim began his coaching career at Providence School in Jacksonville where he coached three different sports over a 9-year period. Leading the girls' soccer team to back to back regional final appearances, middle school softball team to 4 IMSC championships, and JV girls' basketball team to Sunshine Tournament champs.
While coaching, Tim began playing competitive flag football. Over a 10-year span, Tim traveled the USA playing on the #1 team in the country. Winning national championships, played against NFL stars, and eventually being inducted into the flag football Hall of Fame. On July 3, 2010 Tim Callahan was playing in a flag football tournament in Jacksonville when an opposing player fell on top of him causing him to break his neck at the c3 & c4 level. Tim was instantly paralyzed from the neck down and was told he would never walk again.
Vowing to turn that tragedy into triumph, Tim overcame those odds and is walking tall today. Two years after the accident he went back and played in a national flag football tournament in Orlando where his team won the tournament. From paralyzed to a national championship, Tim’s story blew up. As a result, in April of 2013 Tim started the Tim Callahan Inspiration Foundation. The foundation hosts FREE sports camps for kids. Showing kids to never give up, no matter what circumstance life throws at them. The Foundation also gives brand new sporting equipment to kids in need.
Tim has been married for 13 years to his wife Jamie Callahan and they have 2 young boys, Elijah & Noah. Partnering his Foundation with Amenity Athletics will certainly bring a positive outlook to every individual involved.
