Matt Fox | General Manager, Operations

Hailing from New Jersey, Matt grew up honing his skills in the backyard with his fraternal twin brother, Jake. During the height of his all-star career in little league baseball, Matt got caught up in an apple juicing scandal and was forced into early retirement. Fortunately, this gave him more time to focus on his primary sport, Soccer. A few years later, Matt became a three-year varsity letter winner at Teaneck High School and a senior captain of the soccer team.

Prior to joining the LTS team in Chicago, Matt spent four years as the Sports Operations and Growth Manager for ZogSports in New Jersey.  He is excited to grow operations in Chicago and continue delivering the high level of quality with which LTS has become synonymous.

Rob Ballantine | Growth & Operations Manager

Rob lives our core values and really cares about the LTS community. In this new role, Rob will help grow the LTS community by working even more closely with our players, field team, and facilities. We’re really happy for Rob and excited to have him on board!
