The Muskegon Risers organization is proud to announce Chris Denham as Head Coach of the MKG Women’s Team. Coach Denham has immense passion for women’s soccer, a proven track record of success, and a thorough understanding of the Risers mission which naturally aligns with his personal and professional values.

“I am grateful for the opportunity, and I look forward to getting to work and building something that the players, management, supporters, and community can be proud of.” Coach Denham added, “The culture that the club has built and what they are doing to grow the game of soccer for women in the area made it impossible to say no. The women’s game is something I have a deep passion for and I am excited to get to work as we head towards the historic Arena Game on February 15th, as well as the club’s first outdoor season in the UWS.”

The Risers will begin making player announcements over the next few weeks as the team focuses on it’s February 15 game with Muskegon Community College’s women’s soccer team in L. C. Walker Arena, a venue which has never hosted a women’s soccer game in it’s 60-year history. To support this monumental event, visit or call the arena box office at (231) 227-2760.
