How it all began...
Green Bay Glory offers the highest level of pre-professional competition to top level female soccer players. Glory was formed by a group of passionate leaders in the soccer community with a shared mission to provide an avenue for female athletes to create glorious moments both on and off the field and bring the community together.
The formation of the team was inspired by former WPSL Player Kerry Geocaris who followed a childhood dream to play professionally and made a comeback at the age of 39 as a member of the Milwaukee Torrent. After Kerry’s season with the Torrent, she returned to her hometown to play for the newly formed United Hurricanes Women’s Premier team - a high quality team with players across the state only to experience a number of forfeits from teams unwilling to travel to Green Bay.
Out of frustration the team was pulled from the WSL and Geocaris said it was time to go bigger. After seeing little to no advancement in opportunities for female soccer players after twenty years, she decided it was time to create some for young athletes in her community. Geocaris enlisted the support of members from the soccer community and applied to the Women’s Premier Soccer League (WPSL), the nation’s largest women’s soccer league in the world.
As word got out, excitement and support came in. Soon the team behind the team grew to many as people saw the need and jumped on board to make this team happen. We now have a full team behind the team to ensure the Green Bay Glory is Glorious!
