Calvin Deutsch Joins Marquette Staff

June 15, 2015

MILWAUKEE -- Marquette University Department of Intercollegiate Athletics has announced the addition of Calvin Deutsch as a new member of its sports performance staff. He will work exclusively with the men's soccer program.

"Our ambition as a staff is to keep pushing the program forward and to have a fusion between the technical and the science of getting players fit with a specific soccer edge," men's soccer head coach Louis Bennett said. "Calvin will help us bridge that gap from the theory to the science and the practical. He's done a lot of work in this field and will allow us to be on the cutting edge of this program. We're really happy to have him at Marquette."

Deutsch, a licensed doctor of physical therapy who will provide specialization in performance and conditioning, owns and runs Deutsch Physiotherapy Co. based out of his hometown of Wauwatosa, Wisconsin.

He is a member of the American Physical Therapy Association and the National Strength and Conditioning Association. Deutsch established "The Invincibility Project" and describes it as a series of integrated and proactive programs that enhance performance and reduce the risk of injury.

"The Invincibility Project is designed as a very economic training methodology that allows for simultaneous development of a soccer player's technical, tactical, psychological, and physiological skill sets," Deutsch said. "Marquette men's soccer can expect to see a full integration of the conditioning methods into the training process, with a soccer-centric focus."

On August 1, Bennett, Deutsch and a host of Marquette soccer staff and players will be offering a coaching seminar through the Marquette University Soccer School. The seminar will provide youth coaches throughout the region the necessary knowledge and educational tools to integrate some of the components that improve player performance. It will be open to the first 25 coaches who register.
