Local Soccer Coach Publishes First Book

Fond du Lac, Wis.-Fond du Lac High School soccer coach Greg Winkler, a three-time Fox Valley Association Coach of the Year and 2004 Division 1 High School Coach of the Year, released his first book this week, titled Coaching a Season of Significance. The book focuses on the challenges that arise during a given season and how coaches can ensure that each player has a significant season in terms of experiences and development.

"Coaching isn't just about strategies and methods to win the game," Winkler said. "It's about relationships with kids and providing positive examples for them. That's mainly what this book is about."

Winkler, who has coached the boys' program for twelve years and the girls' for four, has led Fond du Lac to five conference titles, ten regional crowns, and two sectional championships in his tenure. Despite his success on the field, Winkler's Coaching a Season of Significance provides a plethora of information on handling situations off the field.

"This book talks a lot about things outside of practice time," Winkler said. "It gives you things to think about while preparing for a season or maybe if you're just starting a coaching career. My goal is to provide you with things you might not have considered otherwise." Coaching a Season of Significance includes chapters on dealing with other coaches and parents, organizing player meetings, setting team goals, and constructing a chain of command.

In addition to accolades at the high school level, Winkler has been recognized as the Wisconsin Youth Coach of the Year in 2006 and as Soccer Parents of the Year in 2002 along with his wife, Vikki. He has served as President of the Fond du Lac Soccer Association from 1992 to 2000 as well as President of the Wisconsin Soccer Coaches Association from 2002 to 2006. Winkler, who teaches physical education at Fond du Lac High School, earned a Bachelor of Science from the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh in 1983.

For more information about Winkler or Coaching a Season of Significance, please contact Greg Winkler by email at gregvikkiwinkler@att.net or by phone at (920) 960-8814. Further information can be found at www.gregwinkler.net.
