Arsenal Colorado Hires New DOC
Arsenal Colorado is excited to announce the hiring of Krist Banghart as the Director of Coaching for our Recreational Boy's division. Banghart will oversee the boy's recreational and PDL divisions of the club, with a focus on player and coach development.
Banghart is a product of the club, having grown up in Fort Collins and playing for Arsenal Colorado for a many years. He began playing collegiately at North Carolina Wesleyan University and transferred to the University of Denver for the remainder of his collegiate playing career. After graduation, he was drafted by Major League Soccer club Real Salt Lake.
As a coach, Banghart is no stranger to Arsenal Colorado. He worked as an Assistant Director of Coaching from 2012-2016 and then took an extended leave of absence to pursue other career opportunities. During this time, he continued coaching teams for the club and soon recognized that working with players and coaches, giving back to the game that has given so much to him, is his true passion. Banghart is excited to be rejoining the club and is anxious to begin working with coaches and players on a regular basis.
“We are extremely excited to have Kris rejoin our coaching staff,” said Dave Shaffer, Director of Coaching. “He comes in with a lot of knowledge and passion for Arsenal Colorado. He will bring new energy to the players in our recreational and PDL leagues. Kris will focus on both player and coach development at our recreational level and look to make an impact on both, quickly.”
When you see him out on the fields be sure to welcome him back!
