MFA COACHING STAFF

We teach more than a game! Our priority is to put each player in a place where they will be challenged—physically, mentally, emotionally. We will make as competitive teams as possible. We want the games of soccer and futsal to be accessible to everyone. We spend time evaluating players and building the most suitable teams for their development, as both a player and an individual.

My life is about living out the calling of impacting the lives of the next generation, inspiring kids to write a future story for themselves that involves hard work, perseverance, integrity, team-mindedness, courage, and drive. I love the platform this great club offers to use competitive soccer to instill success-empowering life lessons for kids outside of soccer and into the future.

MSA has earned a reputation for being the leader in sports management. It offers first-class coaching and extraordinary leadership in its executive management team. As such, the MFA/Revolution FC/ABK family offers players a development pathway that is unsurpassed in west Michigan. I am proud to be on the MFA team and eager to help build West Michigan’s top youth soccer program.

PAT DOYLE

U7-U10 Girls Technical Director

Passionate about molding kids and growing community. Soccer is a beautiful tool because all you have to do is drop a ball and play. And the fact that you never see the same thing twice fascinates me! I believe that God has an intricately designed plan that is unraveling itself in this community and I plan on sticking around to play whatever role He has in store for me.

DEREK DUFENDACH

MFA DIRECTOR

My love for coaching this beautiful game comes from being able to watch kids development and get better and better day by day and because of the life lessons it can teach you through out your futbol/soccer career. I came here to Revaluation to learn as much as possible from some amazing people/coaches, on and off the field and I am just so excited for this new journey and opportunity!

WILL HESSELSCHWERDT

Staff Coach

I’m very grateful for the opportunity to coach the sport I love in such an integrative club that focuses not only on soccer skills, but also how we can become better humans and build into our community. I’m a Calvin College grad with a degree in Exercise Science and Spanish, currently in grad school for Occupational Therapy. When I’m not running around the soccer field with your kiddos, you can find me hiking, running, traveling, hanging with friends/family, adventuring with my camera, or with my dog at Lake Michigan. I’m excited to return for my 6th year with this great club!

DAVE PIERING

STAFF COACH

I’ve been working with children since age 15; from the field, to the pool, to the classroom and beyond, young people have always been a part of my life. I coached my first soccer team at age 16 and discovered a passion. Years later, I’m still going. When I’m not coaching, I can be found playing sports, watching my goldfish or taking a long midday nap.

RICHARD SALDANA

Staff Coach

Soccer is a sport that is always changing and evolving. There are so many different ways players express their individuality. There are also coaches who are always innovating the way the game is managed and how they train. That is why I love this sport. Constantly studying what is going on and catching new details and ideas everyday keeps me pushing myself to be better. I strive to pass that same drive and desire to my players who want it. I give my players the tools to think outside of the box and grow a love for the game because it is what they want, not because it is what I want. That is the most rewarding experience there is for a coach; to see that passion grow from within, not from outside pressure.

RYAN SNYDER

MFA Staff Coach

I am so excited to share my experiences, knowledge and love for the game to the players at Revolution. I’m also very excited for the opportunity to teach the kids to enhance their performance by teaching them how to move efficiently using speed and agility However, more importantly, I am looking forward to using soccer as a means to teach the kids the value of hard work, dedication, and being a great teammate all while having fun.

DIANNE STRAWSER

MFA Staff Coach

I love being outside and being active but soccer is my true passion. I love everything about the sport, especially how it brings people together. I grew up loving the game and always wanting to get out there and play. Coaching has helped me move on in my soccer career, being a leader for kids is the most satisfying thing for me. I hope that through coaching I can pass on my love for the game onto the players at RCFC and help them grow not only as players but as people.
