Head Coach - 8th Season

Fred Wagenaar begins his eighth year as head coach of the women's soccer team at Graceland.

Wagenaar arrived at Graceland in 2004 as the men's and women's goalkeeper coach. That season the women went over 1,000 minutes without surrendering a goal, and went on to the national tournament for the first time in their history, advancing to the Final Four. The 2004 goalkeeper was named All-conference, and the 2005 goalkeeper was named All-conference second team. In 2006 the new women's goalkeeper was again named All-conference first team. The men's goalkeeper was named National Tournament MVP, for not surrendering a single goal in the Graceland men's journey to the 2006 National Championship.

In his second year at Graceland, as co-head coach, after compiling a record of 14-1-2, the women's team went to the National Tournament, advancing to the Elite Eight. In 2006 Wagenaar's Lady Yellowjackets again had a stellar season, with a record of 17-1-0. Since becoming the head coach at Graceland, the team has an incredible record of 109-18-17 and has been HAAC Conference Champions in '04, 05, 06, 07, 08, '09 '10 and 2011.  In 2011 the Jackets posted a record of 10-7-4 and made its fourth consecutive national tournament appearance. Coach Wagenaar was named the HAAC Conference Coach of the Year in 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010.

In 2005 Wagenaar became an accredited American Council Exercise personal trainer. He oversees the program's off-season fitness and weight training. Wagenaar has coached for over 20 years and has coached all ages, from 5 to university age. While his four sons were growing up they won more than 30 individual trophies as player nominated MVP, and he credits them with him having collected more than 70 first or second place trophies for season or tournament success. He coached Club Roma U-19 in Ontario, Canada, with three of his four sons on the roster, to the Ontario Cup finals, losing in penalty kicks. When his youngest son was named to the Canadian National Team U-15 as a goalkeeper, and he went on to keep that role through two FIFA U-20 World Championship tournaments, the resulting time commitment meant that Fred had to give up coaching, and concentrate on Josh's goalkeeping progress.

In Canada's coaching education system of the time, Wagenaar studied level one and level two national coaching theory at Mohawk College. He took level one and level two practical levels at Richmond Hill, and Brock University. At Brock University he studied under Bill Millar, a former national coach of the Canadian Women's team. When Fred came to the States as a goal-keeping coach, he went attained his NSCAA's National Goalkeeping diploma.

Fred's personal playing experience started with the Saltfleet Go-Ahead's soccer club at their inception, just outside of Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. He earned team MVP honors and represented the Hamilton area in the CANUSA games. He attended Hamilton Christian High School, and was a varsity player for four years in soccer, basketball, cross country and track and field.  While he was at Christian HS he captained the soccer and basketball teams. Fred also played rugby in his final year at Saltfleet District High School, and was the team's leading scorer and kicker.

Wagenaar has been happily married to his wife Kathy for 33 years and has four sons, Mark, (poet studying at University of Utah), Jesse, (teacher in Las Vegas), Ben (seminary school in Springfield, Missouri), and Josh (assistant coach at Graceland). Fred recently received his Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education from Graceland in the spring of 2009, graduating summa cum laude.
