General Manager/ Presidenttkruzicki@kevasports.com
Tracy has been with KEVA since the beginning and knows many members by name. She began her career at KEVA by developing the My First Sports and Athletic Kids youth programs in her first ten years with the company. Some of her first students are now coming back from college to say “hi.” She secretly hopes one of her students signs a professional athletic contract and appears on her doorstep with the 10% finders fee.
Currently Tracy is in charge of Overall Facility Operations as President of the company. Tracy hails from Burlington, Wisconsin (as most famous people do-Tony Romo) and has a degree in Child Psychology from UW-Madison. When she’s not hanging with your kids or families at KEVA, she’s cooking, camping and chilling with her family and friends.
We’ve tried to get Greg Wilcox to stop smiling all the time because, frankly, it seems a little unnatural. But the fact of the matter is he enjoys his job and working with KEVA members. On another happy note Greg and his wife, Cassie, have one son at this time with Baby #2 expected in late April. KEVA is thrilled to have Greg serve as League Wrangler because he brings deep knowledge about sports management to us, as he is a graduate of UW-La Crosse’s Sports Management Department.

Garry is excited to be back in Madison after a four year hiatus in Milwaukee. A native of the Detroit area Garry is an avid fan of the Lions, Tigers and Red Wings oh my, but moved to Wisconsin 11 years ago and has become a Badger through and through. Over the last ten years Garry has worked with youth sports as a Coach, Camp Director, and Recreation Director and loves when his participants find the joy in playing, no matter what the sport or activity. In his free time Garry loves to keep active and tries to get involved with as many sports and outdoor activities as he can.

Customer Relations and HR Managerakraemer@kevasports.com
Four score and seven years ago, Annie Kraemer hadn’t been born yet, but everyone felt her presence coming. Annie tends to blast her way into most situations and activities, earning her the nickname Mack Truck. This intense and spirited personality has helped her turn her front desk staff into the lean, mean*, customer service machine that it is. *(front desk staff not actually mean and is, in fact, extremely nice) Annie also takes care of any HR issues and some would go as far as to say she is the HR Czar. Along with wrangling the front desk staff and any HR issues, Annie spends her time playing as many sports as she can fit into her schedule and taking care of her puppy, Gouda. One day, she hopes to rule KEVA with an iron fist, but until then she will bide her time thinking of new ways to enhance the KEVA experience for everyone.
Business Development and Membership Managerjkratochwill@kevasports.com
Born and raised in Madison, she is a big Badger fan! She is married and the mother of 3, which you find out quickly in talking to her that they are her pride and joy- even at 18, 22 and 24. She played soccer growing up and through college. She started coaching when her boys became interested in the sport in Kindergarten. She played at Keva in our Mom’s league until a few years ago. Now she spends her time hanging out with her kids, 2 puppies ( Fenway & Jett), traveling, playing tennis, working out, cheering on the Red Sox, wine time with her girlfriends and just enjoying time with family. Life is short. She is all about making the most of every moment.
Assistant League Manageragavic@kevasports.com
One of the newest members of the KEVA family, was born and raised in Milwaukee. After graduating from Whitefish Bay High School, he attended UW-Madison where he played rugby and studied engineering. While his course of study may be a little different, he has always had a passion for soccer so working in the industry was a no brainer for him. When he’s not busy helping Greg wrangle the leagues here at KEVA; he’s playing soccer, binging a new show on Netflix with his girlfriend, or spending quality time with his hamster, George.
