MKSC Team of the Month


The Nicolet Mavericks have been playing together for two years. They are co-ed team comprised of players who are 6 and 7 years old. The Mavericks are coached by Jeff Schmidt and Heidi Ciske- Schmidt. Prior to coaching the Mavericks, Jeff and Heidi coached their daughter’s MKSC Nicolet-Magic Rec Team. They have coached soccer for a decade, and it has recently become more of a family affair, since their daughter, Kayden, has joined the Mavericks as an assistant coach.


“The team loves hanging out with each other, even outside of soccer. Not only have the players made so many friendships, but the parents have too!” states Coach Heidi. A team highlight for the Mavericks was when they celebrated the end of the season with a cookout. It is truly awesome to see the beautiful game bringing families together and creating new friendships.


The Mavericks love playing in soccer games and enjoy practices too. The coaches try to keep practices entertaining with new and unique drills, including some of their favorites like ‘Get Out of Here,’ ‘Hit the Dirt,’ and ‘Minions vs Ninjas.’ “As Coaches, we not only love to teach the Mavericks the techniques they need to build their soccer skills, but also show them our love for the game.” shares Coach Heidi.


The Mavericks continually live out the MKSC motto, “One Club Built Through Community” They have done an exceptional job being a team and we have enjoyed watching their growth both on and off the pitch. Recreational soccer provides opportunities for players to express themselves, have fun, and create lifelong love of the game. Recreational soccer is important, and teams like the Mavericks are an excellent representation of the positive impact that rec soccer can have on a community!
