Prior to coming to Georgetown, Van Ameyde coached at his alma mater, Detroit Mercy for four years where he worked with the pitchers and hitters, as well as serving as the recruiting coordinator.

Van Ameyde also spent time as a pitching coach in the Great Lakes Collegiate League, where he worked with two current professional pitchers.
As a player at UDM, Van Ameyde, a right-handed pitcher, compiled a 12-7 record with an ERA of 3.65 in 128.1 innings over two seasons. As a senior he was named team MVP as well as being honored with First Team All- Conference accolades after posting a 3.33 ERA in 83.7 innings pitched.
Prior to playing at Detroit Mercy, Van Ameyde also pitched for Henry Ford Community College, where he helped win a regional championship.
Van Ameyde is pursuing a master's degree in sport administration from Wayne State (Mich.). He and his wife Melissa have one son, Chase, who was born on July 24, 2005. The family resides in northern Virginia and also has two English Mastiff dogs, Mattingly and Sinatra.
