Directors and head coaches
From 2005 to 2010, Mael Lefebvre played with FC Lorient, a French association soccer club that plays in Ligue 1, the highest level of French soccer. Mael made it through all the academy ranks all the way up to the reserve team, which ended up winning the league championship in 2010. In the 2010-2011 season, Mael joined US Concarneau, which is now in the 3rd division.
When Mael moved to Hawai‘i in 2011, he played for HPU from 2011 to 2013, becoming captain in 2012 and Most Valuable Player in 2013. HPU won its first-ever conference title in 2011, and during that year Mael had an 0.81 goals against average, which was the lowest rate in the nation. Mael also earned two All-PacWest Conference nominations.
His passion and dedication to the game drove him to become more involved with the game even when he was still playing. In 2012, he became a goalkeeper coach for Academy One Goalkeeping and actually became its director only two years later. After getting his bachelor’s degree in international business from HPU in 2015, Mael became the assistant goalkeeper coach for HPU and also a Riggers coach. In 2016, he joined the Bulls and became the ‘02 boys coach. A year later, he was appointed director of coaching and is now the technical director.
Majell Aterado played professionally for 10 years, starting in 2005 when he played for the California Cougars, part of the Major Indoor Soccer League. After that, he played for the San Diego Sockers and was influential in helping his team win the league championships from 2009 to 2012. In fact, for three years, from 2010 to 2012, the team had the longest winning streak in U.S. professional soccer history.
