University of Northwestern Men’s Soccer Teams up with Soccer Resilience®

The University of Northwestern men’s soccer team has partnered with Soccer Resilience® to grow and benefit from the vast experience, knowledge and resources that the sports mindset advisors bring.

UNW Coach Greg Wheaton is a lifelong student, teacher, and believer in soccer’s beauty and impact.

A former NCAA Division one player and two time all conference honoree for Liberty University, Greg is now entering his 23rd successful season as University of Northwestern men’s soccer head coach. Greg’s passion for soccer traces back to his South American roots and has taken him as a player and coach all over the world with high profile games in Germany, South Africa, Mozambique, Sudan, Brazil, Bolivia, Chile, India, Sri Lanka and Tajikistan.

Greg also founded, owns and directs the International School of Soccer Excellence (ISSE).

As a soccer coach I am always looking for ways to improve myself and my team. One of the most important tools to improve in a person is the mind. The mind is at the core of everything we do. If the mind is not right everything else will be affected by it. We are excited to partner with Soccer Resilience® and take our mental training and mindset to the Next Level!
— Greg Wheaton, UNW Men’s Soccer Head Coach
The college game is so important to me as a former NCAA student-athlete at Wake Forest University. It’s such a pivotal, growing and challenging phase in life – and even more so with the hurdles the pandemic continues to present to current student-athletes, their families and coaching staff. I’m thrilled to partner with UNW and Greg – my brother in Christ who served with me on mission in Chile, where together we used the beautiful game to love and serve others – to provide his eager, impressionable and talented UNW players the content, inspiration, tools and strategies that our Soccer Resilience® team, curriculum and training provides. Go Eagles!
