Check out who we have added to our amazing staff


"Dom’s level of understanding for the game is second to none. His ability to develop both individual players and the collective team unit simultaneously is also first class. I’m excited to see Dom work with our players and help improve the coaching standards we set within the club. He’s a massive addition to a hugely competent staff and somebody that any youth player will be extremely fortunate to learn from. Our final addition to the 2019/20 staff is a very special one and I’m extremely happy to finally have Dom onboard" - Stuart Collins.

"We are delighted that Jeff will be joining our staff. He is no stranger to the club game and we are very happy he chose to return to club Soccer with MFJ. The GVSU women’s program is well renowned for its quality and success and Jeff has done an amazing job leading the charge there for the past 5 years. It will be great for our talented young female players to know that they will never be far from Jeff’s eye as they move through the competitive ranks of the club. Adding Yet another high caliber college coach to our staff helps us provide more value to our players as they look to continue their journeys beyond club Soccer. We couldn’t be happier to welcome Jeff aboard" - Stuart Collins

"Dave Brandt is a quality individual, he's a coach of an outstanding calibre and someone who understands the importance of culture. Dave believes in the vision I have for the club and is somebody who will help drive that vision forward. Attracting coaches of this standard just shows the positive direction we are heading in. Our goal is to continue to build the best possible staff we can and we are succeeding in doing that. Please join us in welcoming Dave to the family" - Stuart Collins

"Holly is a really passionate coach and person, takes pride in what she does and will be a huge asset to our staff and players. Holly will focus her attention on working with our Goalkeepers, she is a former D1 stand out GK at Liberty University and is going to be a fantastic role model to all our young aspiring female players who wish to play at the next level. We are delighted to add her to our 2019/20 staff" - Stuart Collins.

“I can’t say enough good things about James Dutcher. He embodies everything that the modern game demands out of youth coaches; he is innovative, forward thinking, passionate and enthusiastic. He’s been a D1 player and understands how to prepare players to succeed at the next level. He’s spent the past few years working at very high levels within the club game and that experience will help him be a major piece within our staff immediately. Welcome Dutch!! We are delighted to have you” - Stuart Collins.

"I am thrilled to add Chris to our growing staff. Chris has a great reputation within the West Michigan Soccer community both as a fantastic coach and a great person. He will be a very good addition to our club. He believes in our vision, and is committed to helping our players grow and develop. Please help us in welcoming Chris if you see him around" - Stuart Collins
