TCAPS Announces Selection of Central High School Boys’ Varsity Soccer Coach 

TRAVERSE CITY – Traverse City Area Public Schools (TCAPS) is pleased to announce that Chris Hale has been hired as the varsity boys’ soccer coach at Traverse City Central High School.

“As a player and coach, Chris brings an extensive background to the Trojans,” said Zac Stevenson, athletic director for Traverse City Central High School. “I look forward to his leadership as the head coach of our Trojan soccer program.”


In his formative years, Hale played at Christian Brothers College High School in St. Louis, Mo. for Terry Michler, the first boys’ soccer coach in the country to eclipse the 1,000 career win mark, and briefly with Joe Clarke and Val Pelizzaro at St. Louis University. As a teen, Chris also gained international experience with the U.S. Olympic Development program playing in Germany, Italy, and Austria. 


Hale’s coaching experience at Bellaire High School (2012-2016) led the Eagles to four conference championships and a state Final Four in 2013. 


“At this stage of my life, there’s nothing more fulfilling than getting back on the pitch. Having an opportunity to represent a program like Traverse City Central only makes it sweeter,” said Hale.


Professionally, Chris is vice president of sales and marketing at Shanty Creek Resort in Bellaire, Mich.
