Head Coach, U13 Boys Union and U14/15 Boys Union
Coach Wissler’s playing career began as a youth at the Pacesetter Soccer Club and continued through St. Francis DeSales High School - earning MVP honors and state recognition. Chad continued playing club soccer at the University of Toledo when his interest in coaching began. While playing soccer, Chad went on to Creighton University to earn his Doctorate in Physical Therapy.
Chad began coaching at his childhood club - where they went on to win the U9 Ohio North State Championship and multiple future state championships in both Ohio North and also Massachusetts would follow.
He stated, “It was not about the championships won but rather it was helping players reach deep down inside themselves to find out who they really were as a person.” He attributes role models at the following clubs in helping shape his current coaching philosophy: Pacesetter Soccer Club (Ohio North), Inter Milano Soccer Club (Massachusetts), Stars of Massachusetts and Norski Soccer Club. He holds a US Soccer National D License.
What does it mean to be a coach? “Being a coach is one of the greatest privileges a person can have. When parents entrust you to be a role model for their children, that is a responsibility that can’t be taken lightly. As a coach, we have the ability to mold future leaders by teaching respect, dedication, hard work and what it means to accept success and failure graciously. The greatest reward of being a coach is not the state championships or regional championships, but rather, continuing friendships with past players as they are now parents themselves.”
Favorite Quote: “Don’t put a players curriculum in a box and tell them what to learn. Rather, put them on a field and let them explore their potential.”
