The Villains club was founded by Chris Baker in 1981 who is still an active president in our organization. Our TD Munib Koric has been involved for 20 years in a technical capacity and is the longest-serving technical staff at one organization. Munib is a certified UEFA Pro coach which is the highest license you can achieve as a coach in the world. Our Operations Manager Calvin Campbell has been involved for 22 years servicing many roles within the club. Together these three have over 80 years invested in the Villains and have a true sense of loyalty, passion and commitment to the club. You will not find another organization that has the commitment and dedication that these three provide the club.
We Pride ourselves on having former players who come back into the club in coaching roles. We currently have over 10 coaches and staff who were involved in the youth level many of them being involved in the club for over 15 years.
Together our Program leads on the recreational side have been involved with Villains for a combined 35 years. These staff bleed the DNA of the club and ensure that all levels and all abilities have the best programming available. We put equal care and emphasis into each program to ensure every player has a great experience in the club. We are also one of the few clubs that do not charge extra technical fees on our recreational side and offer almost as much as top competitive programs in the city.
