Lyle Hunt

Director of Youth Programs

Lyle Hunt has been the Menace's director of youth programs since March 2015.

A former Menace intern, Lyle returned to Menace after working for the Cedar Rapids RoughRiders in the 2014-15 hockey season. He is a 2014 graduate of Loras College. 


What I do for the Menace:
My primary responsibilities include leading the Menace Academy, Junior Menace and Menace Camp programs. I also do anything I can to assist in the organization’s sales and marketing initiatives, supporting the Menace’s mission to grow soccer in our community.

The best things about my job:
Working with people who have a deep passion for soccer and want to grow the game. Being able to be a part of that is what I've always wanted to do.

My favorite sports teams (besides the Menace):
Everton FC, Iowa Hawkeyes, Sporting KC, Chicago Bears.

Soccer background:

I've been playing since I was five years old. Through high school, I played with Dubuque Soccer Club and was part of Iowa's Olympic Development Program. I stayed in Dubuque to further my career at Loras College as part of teams that made deep runs in the national tournament. I've also enjoyed being part of youth soccer in my past roles as a coach, a referee and a tournament administrator.

Other jobs I’ve had:
Ticket sales and sponsorship executive for Cedar Rapids RoughRiders Hockey; Sales and marketing intern for the Dubuque Fighting Saints Hockey; Marketing and promotions intern for the Menace; Administrative assistant for Dubuque Soccer Club; Youth coach for Dubuque Park and Recreation.

Being outside, hanging out with family and friends, fishing, kayaking, playing soccer.
