Wizard FC Announce New Speed + Agility Coach

By Admin 04/19/2019, 11:30am CDT

Wizards are proud to announce that Glenn Messmer, one of Chicagoland’s top Strength & Agility trainers has joined our coaching staff.  For the past couple years, Glenn has been working with many of Wizard FC’s high school athletes to make them bigger, stronger, faster and quicker for years with incredible results.  For example, nearly half of the girls who made teams at Hinsdale Central High School this spring are Wizard FC trained, including all but one junior on the Varsity team and many more made their respective high school teams at Lyons Township, Downers Grove North, Fenwick, and St. Ignatius among others.  Many of these Wizard athletes have trained with Glenn regularly for quite some time and the results have been tremendous. Soccer players that Glenn has trained have earned numerous individual accolades including All-Conference, All-Area, and All-State and their teams have won multiple Regional and Sectional titles. Many of them have gone to play both professionally and collegiately for such high level teams as Minnesota United FC, Cornell University, Michigan, Indiana, Miami of Ohio, and the University of Chicago to name just a few. So please welcome Glenn to Wizard FC!!!

Glenn will work with our players (Under 11's and older) on a Monday, Wednesday and Thursday at the following times: 

7:00 to 7:45 = U11/ U12 Boys and Girls

7:45 to 8:30pm = U13 and older Boys and Girls

“Playing with Wizard FC has been an awesome experience for my girls.  It is like an extended family.  My girls love their coaches and have been with the program for several years and have developed into good soccer players and disciplined and respectful individuals in general. The coaching staff is knowledgeable about the game and is concerned about the development of the “whole” athlete, both mentally and physically. Lastly, my family appreciates the various playing opportunities and experiences Wizard FC has provided.  We are thrilled we chose Wizard FC for our girls’ soccer journey!”

"As parents we want only the best for our kids.  The Wizard Soccer program has provided the absolute best for my son and his team. The growth the team has made developing their soccer skills is truly amazing, but the respect for the game and the teamwork taught in the Wizard program has exceeded expectations.  From the director, John Roberts, to every coach in the program, they truly care about these kids and also want the best for each one."

- Courtney Douglas

WFC has provided a consistently positive experience, complemented with monumental growth in skills, mindset and integrity. It includes the foundational seeds necessary for any player's dreams for the future. Most importantly, all players learn: how to lose, how to win, how to have fun, how to be an effective teammate and how to be a solid leader. If you are looking for measurable, real ROI for your soccer player's experience, this is it.
