Originally from Omaha Nebraska, I played in college for Truman State University and then went on to play for Sporting KC’s developmental team.

I live in Cherokee with wife Sarah, sons Jack and Tyler (who both play for the club teams) and daughter Molly. I am very excited to get back to competitive soccer with a high level club. I believe in creating a fun learning atmosphere and having the players enjoy the game.

John Hansel

Coaching License: USSF 'D'

I've been enjoying coaching teams from the club for the last 4 years. During the high school season I spend time coaching as the JV boys coach and assistant varsity coach in Spencer. Currently I hold a nation D license. Before coaching I enjoyed playing for club teams and eventually at the college level. I live in Spencer, where I teach 1st grade. My wife, Jennifer, teaches dance at the YMCA as well as being an assistant coach for the high school dance them, The Strutters. Our son Oliver is 3 and loves anything that involves him running around, so I'm hoping that he'll love soccer as much as I do some day.
