Are They Listening?
Do your students stay engaged for the entire duration of an assembly? If the kids aren't paying attention in the first place then what's the point? Forty-five minutes can seem like an eternity for elementary students if you have the wrong speaker or entertainer, especially in today's virtual environment.
Elementary school students love Matt's tricks and messages.
Kids learn more effectively when they are having fun. In order to communicate a unique message you have to communicate that message in a unique way.
Matt Wilhelm's elementary school assembly program is unlike any you've ever seen.
Matt will keep your students' attention for the entire duration. His award-winning tricks are literally “award-winning.” He has won X-Games Medals, National Titles, and was a Semi-Finalist on “America's Got Talent.” Your students will be in awe that someone from TV is putting on a live show just for them.
But Matt isn't performing for your kids just to put on a show. The real reason is to share his story. His message is delivered in a way that elementary school students can understand, digest, and apply to their own lives.
Your students, teachers, and principal will all love the show because it entertains, educates, and empowers students. It works on ALL levels.

We were originally scheduled to have him at our school in the spring of 2020, but COVID forced us to cancel.

If you don't book Matt Wilhelm for your next school assembly, you are missing out! Where do I even begin? From day one, his communication was top notch. He responded immediately to all emails and provided detailed information regarding his show, equipment, dates, price, etc. He was extremely... flexible when it came to accommodating our school of over 1,000 kids. Not only are his tricks captivating, his message really hits home. In today's world, Matt's story really captured the audience and our students connected immediately. His generosity of selecting students out of the audience to participate and distribute signed posters was the icing on the cake. The feedback from our school, staff and members of the community spoke for itself. We loved Matt so much that this was our second time having him return to our school. "Never Give Up" Matt:) Thank you for an AMAZING show and can't wait to see you in the future! The Bulldog community adores you!!!!read more

5-star assembly!!! Matt Wilhelm performed at Mill Creek Elementary in September 2021 and it was an awesome experience! It was the first assembly for the school since COVID started, so it was highly anticipated by both students and teachers. Matt’s assembly did not disappoint! The students were... highly engaged with both Matt’s message and his BMX performance. The teachers were as well and especially loved Matt’s message about kindness, hard work and having a positive growth mindset. Matt’s story is inspiring and very relatable to both kids and adults! Matt does an excellent job balancing entertainment (his super cool BMX tricks!) with his story and message. Matt incorporates great humor and a positive message into his assembly, while also maintaining the attention of 400+ students. I was amazed how quickly they quieted down whenever Matt asked for their attention during the speaking portions of the assembly.Given the restrictions of COVID guidelines in schools, the assembly took place outside and I highly recommend this as a successful option during these challenging times. Both the students and teachers loved being outside for the assembly – fresh air, no gym echoes, no noisy bleachers. Weather can obviously be a concern and our original scheduled date was rained out. Matt was extremely flexible regarding rescheduling. In addition, Matt was extremely professional and easy to work with during the booking process. Matt has great communication skills and replies to phone calls and emails in a timely manner. He even incorporated the school’s motto/theme into his assembly to help solidify the message with students.I highly recommend Matt Wilhelm’s school assembly! I’ve already received feedback from students, parents and teachers that it would be wonderful to have Matt return in future school years!read more

Matt recorded a virtual assembly for our school in Feb 21. He and I exchanged several emails throughout the process. He was responsive, courteous, professional, and not pushy. He answered all my questions in a timely manner. He put together a fantastic product, incorporating videos of our... students asking him questions. The video was also unique to our assembly. He didn't use a canned video that he made for all his customers- that part really impressed me. He tricks were captivating and the students AND teachers were mesmerized. It was so great, kids wanted to watch it multiple times (giving parents 45 minutes of quiet each time!). His messaging was also timely and important for kids to hear.Members of our PTA and teachers/principal shared wonderful feedback for his performance and messaging with me. I was thanked a bunch by parents for finding such an exciting assembly. Parents told me their kids loved it and watched it repeatedly; parents also told me they loved the messaging (one parent said, "how special and important his message about finding one’s special thing and just doing it. Very meaningful."The principal told me she received great feedback from the teachers.I would HIGHLY recommend Matt for your next assembly, whether virtual or in-person!read more

I am the Assembly Coordinator for our PTO. With the need for virtual assemblies this year we are so happy to have found Matt's BMX show! Our elementary school is grades K-4 and our students all watched last week! I have heard from many parents saying their child thought it was such a cool video and... really enjoyed it! My son had his older brother watch too! Such a great positive, kindness, and anti-bullying message! I also touched base with our School Administration and they said it had great feedback from the teachers and that it really held the attention of the kids. I watched of course and thought the message was clear and personable. I also think the addition of our schools students gave it such a personal touch in a time where we can't hold assemblies in person. I also liked the addition of Matt's children in the video! Those were such cute segments! My son was laughing so hard during the jumping stuff section! I would highly recommend this program for your school or group!read more

We were honored to welcome Matt Wilhelm to The Avery Coonley School in Downers Grove on January 6, 2020. Matt's school assembly program was our welcome-back event after winter break, and the students needed something special to capture their attention and imagination after two weeks off of school.... Admittedly, Matt had his work cut out for him, but he more than rose to the occasion! The students were treated to an absolutely fantastic performance: Matt engaged them from the first minute to the last, exciting them with his arsenal of amazing BMX tricks, and enthralling them with stories of his background as a bullied kid. The students cheered in delight watching their classmates participate in tricks, and lost their minds when Matt jumped his bike over two of their teachers! His uplifting messages of trying your best, persevering through practice, and being kind and supportive to others resonated with all our students - from 1st through 8th grades! As a father of two kids at ACS and a member of their Home and School Association, I am so happy that we had Matt at our school. We would recommend him to any other elementary or middle school looking for a fantastic enrichment program! Thanks Matt!read more

Matt Wilhelm performed at our annual First Day of School Assembly for students, staff, and family members. He was a resounding success with his entertaining and engaging act. I appreciated his powerful message on perseverance, hard work, and being a positive leader at school in the face of... bullying. We had an unforeseen issue with our gym space that required Matt to change locations 30 minutes prior to our show, and he did so in a positive and upbeat manner, even helping direct students to seats in an organized fashion. In my 3 years as an administrator, this was the BEST and most meaningful assembly we have had. Thank you Matt for helping Oregon Elementary School start the school year on a positive note!read more

He talked about never giving up, always trying your best, kindness, bullying.... All his messages came across. He kept the crowd laughing, learning and wanting more. The kids loved it. Teachers and parents that were there thanked me for finding such an amazing assembly. I have planning assemblies for our school for 5 years. I would say this was the best we've had to date. 🙂read more

The kids loved the show as he creates a fun atmosphere during the show right from the start with upbeat music, his bike moves, and funny personality. He kept a nice pace to the show with bike stunts and time to share his anti-bullying... message. His message of building others up and knowing the power of your words was shared in a student friendly and interesting way. Matt was professional with every aspect of his visit from arriving early to our school for set-up and being flexible with the spaces we had to work with for the performances. We had two great shows, one outdoor and one inside due to weather. I think I actually liked the indoor show better, but both were fantastic.read more

Matt visited our middle school last week. He was fantastic! I've seen a number of motivational speakers over the years, and he was one of the best. He does some tricks which the kids love, but he does a good job of talking during and explaining them. He has a great message about not only being... kind, but also not being the bystander. Whether or not they truly take it to heart, they said things afterwards like, "I want to be someone's Batman." He also delivers it well. He clearly knows how to talk with young people.read more
03:50 14 May 19
Wonderful! Matt was able to entertain and share his message very effectively with our K-5th graders. Matt's bike stunts were amazing and astounded the kids.

16:13 11 May 19
Matt engaged our preK-5th grade students with talent, humor, and a strong message. He held their attention with bike tricks. However, our students left with a charge to be up standers or a trusted “hero” to someone else. Matt even stayed after school and signed autographs for 30 minutes. We... recommend him for your next school assembly.read more
