Tosa Kicks (Girls)
The first Tosa Kicks teams were formed in the 1970s by Laura and Jim Moynihan, longtime Tosa residents. Laura founded the first girls' league in the State of Wisconsin, the first girls' teams in Wauwatosa, and the first girls' Olympic Development Program (ODP) in the state. Her teams won state championships and were nationally competitive. More than 40 of her girls played in college, and several had opportunities with the Youth National Team. Today the U17 Girls USYSA National Championship and the UW-Milwaukee Soccer field are named in Laura's honor. She is a member of the Wisconsin Soccer Hall of Fame and the Wisconsin Soccer Coaches Association Hall of Fame.
Today's Tosa Kicks rightly claim a piece of women's soccer history in America and are graced by the spirit of Laura Moynihan.
Tosa Villagers (Boys)
The first Villagers teams were formed by Tosa resident and MKSC founder, Aleks Nikolic. Aleks and his wife Helga, together with five other couples, founded Milwaukee Kickers Soccer Club in 1968 with a goal of creating a non-ethnic soccer club. By 1978, the Tosa region of Milwaukee Kickers was in its third year of operation, and MKSC boasted more than 90 teams and 1,800 players.
Under the direction of Soccer America magazine's "Mr. Soccer America" (1974), Aleks' Tosa Villagers won several state championships and played in the Region II National Competition. From 1979 to 1989, Aleks developed some of the state's best players, including Tosa Villager Mike Huwiler, who played for the U23 US National Team in the 1992 Olympics. Aleks, too, is a member of the Wisconsin Soccer Hall of Fame and the Wisconsin Soccer Coaches Association Hall of Fame.
Today's Tosa Villagers trace their history to the origins of soccer in southeastern Wisconsin, and are successors to some of the best boys' teams in state history.
