Steven Hamersky, a 6’2 Goalkeeper and Wichita native, has officially signed with FC Wichita.
Hamersky played high school soccer under Coach Mike Skaggs at Bishop Carroll Catholic High School in Wichita. As a senior, he captained the Eagles to their first Regional Championship in 13 years before heading to a local NCAA school, Newman University.
At Newman University, Hamersky helped NU secure its best season since going NCAA Division II with a 13-5-1 record. Hamersky finished with a GAA of 1.27 in his final season for the Jets under coach Cliff Brown.
Hamersky has become a familiar face to the Wichita soccer community. He played at the professional level for the Wichita B-52s of the MASL under the direction of legendary Wichita Wings player and coach Kim Roenvedt. Hamersky also trains many local youth players and has recently become an FC Wichita Academy goalkeeper coach.
Last summer, Hamersky played in the NPSL Northeast Division for the Electric City Shock. He averaged 10 saves a game and helped an injury-stricken Electric City Shock side to an even higher standing than the previous year. “Hamersky has recent NPSL experience and is coming off a great effort against the Tulsa Roughnecks,” said CEO Blake Shumaker. “He’s class in his approach to training, loves Wichita, and is the most polite young men you’ll ever meet. He’ll fit in perfectly and we’re glad to have him.”
“I am beyond excited to be able to play in my own city again. I have yet to see anywhere with a better sense of family then what the Wichita soccer community brings to this team,” said Hamersky. “Under the quality of management and coaching that FC Wichita possesses, I feel there is only one way this team can go and I cannot wait to be a part of something bigger.”
