  • Kyle Langan - Diocese of Joliet Seminarian, played at Franciscan University and after college in Chicago's semi-professional leagues. Obviously, as a seminarian his first love is Jesus Christ, but he is also thrilled to be able to spend time on the field every chance he gets and can't wait to help at the camp for the second summer!

  • Gary Klump - Played at Franciscan University and played semi-professional soccer after college. Gary is also a registered and licensed professional soccer referee. Gary has a doctorate in theology and currently teaches at Marquette University. With his expertise and experience as a teacher both on the field and in the classroom, we are very happy that he will be joining us this summer! "I love the game, and I've seen it all: the good, the bad, and the ugly -- in myself and in others. I believe in the power of sport to transform lives by being, in the words of Saint John Paul II, a 'school of virtue.' "

  • Brian Kibler - With over 20 years of coaching experience, Brian is a passionate Catholic who has coached soccer at all ages and levels, ranging from 5-year-old beginners to the professional level. From Naperville, he currently coaches for the Chicago Red Stars women's professional soccer team. We are excited to have him as one of our coaches for this summer!

  • Patrick Langan - Patrick was a coach last summer for the camp. He played at Wheaton North High School and at Loras College, where he helped the team reach the final four in the country two seasons in a row. Having some high school coaching experience and a particularly strong devotion to St. Joseph, we are very excited to have Patrick returning again this summer as a member of our coaching team!

  • Michael Re - One of the original visionaries of Catholic Soccer Camp, Michael brings a lot of experience as a player and coach, but most especially as a faithful disciple of Jesus Christ. Previous captain of Franciscan University's soccer program, he continues to be a leader and mentor for many both in the work place and as a good friend.
