Seeking to grow the game of soccer in the Grand Rapids Area by creating environments at all levels that are inclusive for everyone. My goal is for each kid to feel valued as a person and student as well as a soccer player.
We are in the continuous process of building our programs for both club and high school. We are expanding on opportunities for kids to play at the highest levels both in and out of the Grand Rapids areas for those who are driven to reach their highest potential as a soccer player. With geography being a barrier for competition and player development, we are seeking ways to combat this. As a club and high school program, we are continuously working to break down barriers that prevent our top players from competing with those from metro areas who currently have more resources in their areas.
