When shopping girls clubs in Michigan, I have not found a club with a coach that has near the background of the new Michigan Rovers coach and founder. His bio as seen on the Michigan Rovers website is very impressive. This looks to be the new option we all have been looking for. Not a merger. It looks to be something new,fresh and different. Very high high level opportunity...

us list of coaches with clean background checks. No one will take this seriously until the founnder discloses who his "trainers" (coaches) are. What is he hiding?

I checked out the Michigan Rovers Website. It said USSF "A" Licensed Coach Alex Ludwig was head coach for the teams. Also, assistants would be named soon and all coaches and trainers will be MSYSA Risk Management Certified. Site had some great links to "girls" soccer sites. Had a complete resume on Founder and DOC Alex Ludwig (WOW!). The costs were very reasonable and the Rovers' philosophy was nice to see. Looks very good to me.

Rover sight says all coaches and trainers MSYSA Risk Management Certified. I like what I see.

From all of your posts in this thread that either you are very easily impressed or are involved in the club. Either way, trust but verify.

Resumes are a dime a dozen in soccer. Enter any soccerbum's name with a European accent and see for yourself. I could name 20 European ex-pros who I wouldn't let near my kid. The proof is on the pitch. And there have been no matches yet. Save your "WOW"s for real results.

I am a fellow youth soccer coach and I can assure you Alex Ludwig is a fine coach, trainer, and person. Your child would be very fortunate to have Alex train them. He is very well respected in the coaching community. Good Luck to Alex and his new club

I dunno I thought Mr. Ludwig's resume read as much more than that of a former pro player. It looks like he has been successful as a Pro, National and Youth coach. I think you would be hard pressed to find anyone that could match his credentials anywhere. We should be welcoming this guy and his new club to Michigan. He looks outstanding to me.

I saw the same thing very impressive. What about Vardar East Miriam Hickey she is very impressive also.

It's now June 2nd & the tryout information isn't posted.
I am curious & interested if the team my player want to make doesn't work out, but I would like to see more finalized information to make an informed decision.

She is the real deal and has a great bio...
06-02-2009, 09:11 AM
I was referring to coach Hickey....
06-02-2009, 06:22 PM
Is she leaving Vardar East?

I was just responding about different coaches bios. I have been looking for a team for my daughter and saw her bio. (This is how rumers get started)

the Rovers tryout. She is an ODP player and I Know of several ODP players that are going to this club. Great Opportunity...

Only Ludwig is listed for the staff and Lansing players are being asked to drive to tryouts in Grand Rapids or Detroit due to Ludwig being unable to be in tryouts at all 3 locations on the same day?? I'm skeptical he actually has a staff. Web site is a little lacking in any real content, unless "coming soon" is considered informative to some. I think I'd wait a year and see how the club performs. Looks to be a little lacking in the details.

I checked out the Rovers website and it was complete and answered all my questions. It said they were forming 4 teams U13 U14 U15 U16. Alex Ludwig will train and coach all teams with an assistant present at all training sessions, maintaing a coach to player ratio of 1 to 8 . Keepers play for free. Costs posted. Tryouts posted. All vital information is on the website. It looks like the best opportunity around. Costs are low. Value High. Free residential 1 week team soccer camp. A USSF "A" Licensed Coach. Gotta Check the Rovers out at www.michiganrovers.com if you have a girl... My ODP Player will be at their tryouts!

with Mr. Ludwig for 1 year. He has improved in all areas. I would strongly recommend Coach Ludwig to any family. He is an excellent teacher.

Good Luck Coach Alex, your players at Lansing Catholic Central Girls Varsity Team.
