Jeremy founded Athletic Jaier FC in 2003 with his brother Jason. Since then they have served as the Training Directors. During this time they developed and instituted a soccer program based on a curriculum of player development first and foremost. It is one of the few programs who maintain the integrity of their curriculum by not just saying they are developing players but also putting it into action. Winning is important but results are secondary to the needs of the player. Jaier FC continues to believe that winning is the by-product of focused player development; winning is not emphasized at the expense of player development so the coach can build his or her resume. The players will always come first and foremost. This focus on player development and the Jaier Curriculum has helped to produce 28 college players who have participated at every level from NCAA DI to NCAA DIII and NAIA as well as ODP State & Regional Players.
Jeremy is also Co-Head Coach of the Men’s and Women’s Varsity Soccer Programs at Lake Michigan College. The Redhawks will kick off play in the Fall of 2013.

Also in 2005, the Cumberland Men finished 12-5-2, finishing in 1st place in the TranSouth Athletic Conference with a perfect 5-0 record.
