Mark MacKain

After four years playing with the U.S. Youth 15 & 18 National Teams and Olympic A & B Teams, Mark came to the Atlanta Chiefs of the North American Soccer League (NASL) in 1979 as the fourth high school player ever drafted into professional soccer in the United States. Mackain played three years in the NASL and one year in the MISL with the New Jersey Rockets playing in 18 nationally televised games and was the third player to ever train inside an EPL youth system (Aston Villa) before a chronic knee injury forced him from the game.

Mark continued to be heavily involved in the sport after his playing days were over by coaching his four sons, which began a 21-year coaching career with Atlanta Fire United. Coaching teams in the U.S. Developmental Academy (USDA) and Elite Clubs National League (ECNL), Mark also served six years working as a Director of Coaching and Director of Operations from 2006-2013. His experience at USDA and ECNL included coaching four women's national pool players, four future MLS players, and one U.S. Men's National Team Player. As a Super Y Director, Mark also hired and assisted his staff which produced two Super Y National Championships.

Over the last six years Mark has spearheaded a college recruiting process that has yielded the most players committed annually to colleges, than any single soccer Club in the state of Georgia. He has served on the Executive Board of Atlanta Fire United for 11 years helping to grow the club from under 900 to over 4,500, the U.S. Club Executive Board since 2009 where membership increased from 250,000 to over 500,000 and Juggle the World’s Executive Board serving under privileged inner city players.

Receiving his "A" license in 2004, he has or currently works with the ODP Region III staff (2001-2010), U.S. Club Player Development Program staff (2013-present), Super Y National staff (2010-present) and is a regular presenter at the globally attended NSCAA/U.S. Club Director of Coaching Course.

Mark is dedicated to taking his long-time association as a successful local business owner, combined with his vast soccer experience of over 38 years as a player and coach, to launch a club where a strong emphasis is fundamentally stressed on player development, but also balanced with teaching players the highly-competitive aspects of the sport.

Jean-Jacques Gregoire Jr

Jean-Jacques Gregoire Jr “Coach JJ” is a trilingual Haitian-American educator and coach. As is common in Haitian culture, JJ grew up a soccer enthusiast and has played the game all his life.  An Illinois native, JJ turned down offers from Dartmouth and many other prestigious schools, and walked on to Illinois State University’s D1 team. During his time there, he played both striker and central attacking midfielder. The team made the playoffs for the first time in many years, and JJ was named “Missouri Valley Conference Player” as a sophomore. After graduating with a degree in Education and completing a double major in French, he played for the Rockford Raptors and the Chicago Stingers - professional clubs prior to the founding of Major League Soccer (MLS). Coach JJ earned his master’s degree in Education at National-Louis University in Chicago. He also co-founded JAHBAT FC, an amateur men’s team in the Chicago area. It continues to run to this day with both academy and select teams. He continued to play the game he loved well into his 30’s with a traveling Soccer team, playing in beautiful locations like St. Maarten and Brazil, where he was offered a permanent position to play. While coaching and playing part-time, for 10 years, JJ was also a full-time Special Education teacher, focusing on high functioning autistic children. He eventually committed to a full-time to a career as a youth soccer and futsal coach.

Coach JJ began his coaching career more than 20 years ago by successfully leading Evanston High School’s JV team to an undefeated 22-0 season, beating its own varsity team in the process. As varsity coach of Chicago’s #1 high school, Walter Payton College Preparatory (ranked #10 in the nation in academics), JJ accomplished major athletic victories including the school’s FIRST state playoff competition. In 2007, after relocating from Chicago to the Atlanta area, he continued his teaching and coaching efforts at Meadowcreek HS. His tenure at soccer clubs like Roswell Santos, Concorde Fire, United Futbol Academy, Collin’s Hill SC, and All-IN FC have been met with noteworthy successes. He currently coaches for All-IN FC and Lanier Soccer Association (LSA). At LSA, he serves as head coach of the U13 team, which will compete in the MLS NEXT LEAGUE- the replacement program of the now defunct U.S. Soccer Development Academy.

Coach JJ started Yellowcap FC in 2013 as a more focused presentation of his specific style of play, acting as coach and trainer for futsal teams and individual players looking to improve technically. Yellowcap FC joins United Futsal following a successful summer. In July, two Yellowcap FC teams competed at the 2020 World Futsal Championships held in Orlando, Florida. The 2011/12 boy’s team dethroned the 2019 titleholders, while the 2007/08 squad finished third in the top division. Yellowcap FC’s, 2009’s were crowed National Champions at the beginning of 2020 in Kansas City. Coach JJ looks forward to the Champions Cup Series (CCS) providing promising youth futsal players with a pathway to the top tier of international competition.

Working with both boys and girls, JJ has a long history of developing players that move on to higher level programs and clubs including DA, RPL, SRPL, College, Atlanta United DA, MLS and even international clubs and programs. He currently holds a US Soccer National “A” license, a US Futsal level 1 diploma, and continues to seek new licenses and certifications while challenging himself as a top-level coach. His commitment to excellence and his passion for the “beautiful game” are unrivaled. His priority is always the love of the game, and the joy that should be felt while playing it! He looks forward to continuing to share his love for soccer, while focusing on growing Georgia soccer into the premier market in the country. He would love to be the source the national team comes to for their players.

Prior to working at Hancock, I spent one year as the Director of Coaching for the Wilson Youth Soccer Association.  I developed a player pathway curriculum that showed what each player should be learning at the various age groups.   I also created a coaching manual for all Select coaches to follow in order to provide some consistency in the program.  I worked with the board to help the club visibility in the community and we saw about a 20% increase in the number of players. I was responsible for the hiring of all Select coaches within the club.  I worked closely with the city to bring ECNL, R3PL and NC State Cup games to our home venue.

Before getting hooked on coaching I had a long playing career. I grew up in the Atlanta area and started to play soccer at age 7.  I played many years for the very successful Datagraphics Soccer Club where we won numerous State and Regional Cups.  As a high school player, I was on the Southwest Dekalb team that won State Championships in 1979 and 1980 while winning 33 straight games.  I originally went to Georgia State University to play soccer.  After two good years, I decided to transfer to Clemson University as they were a perennial top 10 programs.  At Clemson, I was the team captain for two years and helped lead Clemson to an NCAA National Championship in 1984.  I was a two-time All-ACC team member, was part of the Region 3 team for many years, and was in the US National Team pool as well.   I also represented the United States at The World University Games in 1985.  I played professionally in the MISL and NPSL with Cleveland, Jacksonville, Atlanta, and Kansas City.
