The Force North Board is comprised of volunteers and does not include our Executive Director or DOC.

Outside of the club he works at a small tech company and he uses that experience to help Force North with its web, registration, and online marketing. When he’s not on the sideline taking photos, you can find him demonstrating his enjoyment of the game on the pitch with other like-minded neighbors.
