Continuing Education at the Michigan Chill

YESsoccer is very proud to announce that YESConnect coaches Ben Jones and Stuart Greer have both achieved their USSF ‘A’ License, the highest-level coaching license available in the U.S. 

Ben is Director of Coaching and Stuart is Technical Director at the fast-growing Michigan Chill SBC Soccer Club in East Lansing, MI, and are great examples of how YES can connect your club to world-class coaching. 

YESConnect is an outsourced solution for all of the recruitment, immigration, and payroll aspects involved in bringing a qualified and committed international coach to your club.

Matt Brown runs YESConnect for Youth Elite Soccer, and he recruited and placed Ben and Stuart at the Chill: "My job is to find the right coach for your club, raise the level of training for all of your players, and make your life as a board member or club manager easier."

Matt's support has helped give Chill owners Kevin and Julie Mullin the time to grow their club to 24 teams, U9 to U17, this year. 

But more importantly, it has provided the Mullins the class of international coaches that can drive their mission of continuing education at the Chill:

  • In addition to Ben Jones and Stuart Greer's 'A' Licenses, YESConnect coaches Darren Arnott and Robert Cheyne have achieved their USSF ‘B’ License, and Paul Lancaster and Elliott Dougall have earned their USSF "C" licenses.  
  • Both Ben and Stuart also hold the highest coaching award available from the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) the Premier Diploma.
  • In addition to his USSF License, Darren has achieved the Premier Diploma and Robert the Advanced National Diploma from the NSCAA.
  • In addition to their USSF Licenses, Elliot has achieved his Advanced National Diploma and Paul holds his National Diploma from the NSCAA.

Congratulations to all the lads, and to Kevin and Julie on the dynamic learning environment that they have created at the Michigan Chill SBC Soccer Club.  YESsoccer is proud to serve you.
