    NEW COACHING STAFF

    WELCOME to Bantam B Head Coach Quinn Fowler-

    My name is Quinn Fowler and I grew up in the ice rink and have played competitively for 15 years. I am currently 19 years old. I went to Reeths-Puffer high school and played all 4 years on the varsity team. Currently, I attend Muskegon Community College. This past season I was an assistant coach on our Pee Wee B team where I learned alot of valuable coaching skills that he plans to apply to next year's season. I'm super excited to be the head coach of the Bantam B team and to continue to help in the development of our Jr Jacks players. I am committed to instilling accountability, work ethic and a team built around strong communication both on the ice and off. I may be young but I am a fast learner and cannot wait to mold this team my way. I am extremely excited for this opportunity and can't wait to get started.

    WELCOME to Squirt B Head Coach Mike Johnson-

    Mike Johnson (age 44), a native of Muskegon, has been involved in hockey for 40 years as a player, coach, and parent.  After playing in the Muskegon travel system, Mike became a 4- year letterman for the Mona Shores Varsity hockey team.  Since then he has gone on to coaching at Mona Shores as an assistant coach from 2002-2007.  Most recently, Mike has taken on the assistant coach responsibility for Junior Jacks U10 Squirt B.

    WELCOME to Squirt AA Head Coach Casey Riley-

    I grew up in Marne, MI  and graduated from Kenowa Hills High School in 2003. I now live in Sparta with my wife and three kids.

    After high school, I played Juniors in the CSHL for the Grand Rapids Owls and the Cincinnati Cobras.

    WELCOME to Midget A Coach Jake Laime--

    Jake will be coaching our Midget A team with Ryan Beishuizen. Jake brings a level of coaching the Jr Jacks are striving for. 

    The native of Muskegon, Michigan, brings with him a rich resume replete with a wealth of experience, hockey acumen and impressive winning success.

    For the past 10-years, Jake has served in the integral capacity of managing hockey organizations. In this capacity, he has been instrumental in creating a positive, winning culture, while recruiting top tier talent and developing a strong foundation and structure. Moreover, the 38-year-old junior hockey executive has continued to instill discipline and strong sense of purpose and direction as the leader of his organization.

    Having earned the reputation of being a dynamic leader, teacher of the game and proven winner, Laime has compiled a brilliant .789 victory percentage through his 10-year coaching career; 578(435-116-27).

    Included in his portfolio is a 439(323-97-19) record during eight seasons as Head Coach/General Manager of the perennial powerhouse Ogden Mustangs (WSHL). In those eight campaigns, Laime guided his club to 6- Division Finals appearances in the span of 7-years; 4-Division Championships; 4-Thorne Cup appearances and 2-Thorne Cup Finals. Further, his organization was the league leader in NCAA placements for an unprecedented 7-consecutive years. Laime is a two-time winner of the WSHL Coach of the Year Award both in 2015 and 2019.

    Prior to his time in Ogden, from 2009-2011, Jake served the role of Strength and Conditioning Coach for the ECHL Florida Everblades and their 2011 Kelly Cup Championship. During that time he also helped co-found the Florida Jr. Blades, spearheading his team to one of the highest winning percentages in all of junior hockey.

    Jake also won the Junior B National Championship in 2008-09 as the Assistant Coach with Suffolk PAL (Metropolitan Junior Hockey League) and holds a USA Hockey Level 4 Certification.

    Perhaps, the most rewarding achievement is his influential role in coaching and mentoring. Amongst an impressive list of players he has both trained and coached, includes over 10 NHL Draft picks.

    A life devoted and dedicated to hockey, Jake saw action at the pro level in the UHL with the Muskegon Fury, Flint Generals and Port Huron Flags as well as in the SPHL with the Jacksonville Barracuda and Pee Dee Cyclones.
