Popular SC Waukesha Program Is Now SC Wave
Milwaukee, Wisconsin - SC Waukesha, one of the most successful soccer clubs in Wisconsin, has announced that it will fully integrate its programs with the Milwaukee Wave professional soccer organization and will now be known as SC Wave.
This level of interaction was signaled by ROC Ventures CEO Mike Zimmerman when his organization acquired SC Waukesha last year. ROC Ventures also owns the Milwaukee Wave.
"There is obvious synergy between the outstanding SCW programs and the Milwaukee Wave organization," Zimmerman said. "The SC Wave offering now extends from the very first experience a youth would have in a Wave Camp or Recreational Programming in their community all the way through professional soccer."
Shan Amini, Club President of SCW, could not agree more. "We feature Wave players as coaches in our programs, so the relationship is already there," he noted. "Now we can create full integration and affiliation--everything from camps to league play--with the longest standing professional soccer organization in the United States."
All SCW teams, including the Milwaukee Wave, will be sporting PUMA black and yellow kits starting this upcoming season, further unifying the programs.
SCW, already the top soccer organization in the state, has facilities in Waukesha, Greendale, New Berlin, and Walworth. They will become a key tenant of the Ballpark Commons Sports Performance Center being developed by ROC Ventures. This first-of-its-kind facility will feature over 40,000 square feet of commercial space for performance- and wellness-based services, uniquely integrated with an additional 75,000+ square feet of four-season turf on the ground floor for athlete training, tournaments, and games--the only full-size indoor soccer field in the state.
The new SC Wave has partnered with EXOS, also based at the Ballpark Commons Sports Performance Center, for top-line performance training. "EXOS offers elite speed, strength, and conditioning programs that are custom-made for our athletes at all levels," noted Shan Amini. "This represents an extraordinary opportunity for players to maximize their abilities in an incredible facility."
SCW will feature four primary programs:
The Milwaukee Wave is, of course, the professional indoor soccer team founded in 1984. They are the oldest continuously operating professional soccer team in the United States, currently playing in the Major Arena Soccer League, and are 6-time Indoor Soccer World Champions.
The SC Wave Select program provides an opportunity for a higher level of competition and training for more serious players who have demonstrated superior ability, skill development, and commitment. SCW's Wave Select
program is for players U11-U19 who are offered positions on a team after participating in tryouts, and the SC Wave Select program is coached by licensed paid coaches. The SC Wave Select program has community-based select teams and highest-level SC Wave Juniors, which draw players from the entire state of Wisconsin.
The SC Wave Academy provides an opportunity for a higher level of competition at ages U7-U10. SC Wave Academy's training is for more serious players who have demonstrated superior ability, skill development, and commitment. Academy teams participate in a more competitive leagues and attend additional tournaments. Coaches in the SC Wave Academy are licensed and paid. The training focuses on development required to carry out the tactics needed to play Select Soccer. Individual ball skills, creativity, and love of the game will create exciting soccer players who can play on successful select teams at the highest levels.
SC Wave Recreational Soccer offers youth the opportunity to play soccer at many different age groups in their local communities. SC Wave Recreational begins at the U-4 level and the SCW program teaches fundamentals of soccer while placing an emphasis on having fun and enjoying the game. All players will receive equal playing time in varying positions on the soccer field, and the SC Wave Recreational teams are coached by parent volunteers.
