Originally from Lake Mills, started coaching youth sports as a 21 year old in the middle of taking a year off from college. The following year, he returned to college to complete his degree but his athletic focus had changed from that of an athlete to that of a coach. Since that first year, he has played a role in the development of well over 1,000 athletes, as both a club and HS baseball,
softball & football coach, including numerous athletes who have gone on to compete at the DI, DII and DIII levels collegiately, in addition to 4 who have made it all the way to highest professional level (NFL).
In 2009, he founded Thundercat Baseball & Softball and managed both the baseball & softball sides of the club through 2015. In 2016, he took a step back to focus his energy on the softball side of the club, the HS Showcase Program in particular, where he works to develop future collegiate softball players through development & recruiting help.
Kyle Hans currently is the HS Softball Showcase Program Coordinator.
