Former Wildcats, Now Coaches Train 88 Soccer Campers

Eighty-eight kids from those that will be entering kindergarten to those entering their senior year attended the first night of a four-night SSISD boys and girls soccer camp Monday night inside and outside the Multipurpose Building. The camp will continue evenings from 6 p.m. until 8 p.m. through Thursday. Running the camp is new Wildcats Head Soccer Coach Nicky Wiggins. Camps can include varsity players as long as outsiders are instructing them. Coach Wiggins has former Wildcat and current Mesquite Poteet Head Coach Colby Peak working with the varsity Wildcats and former Wildcat player and Head Coach Andy Holt, now Head Coach at Frisco Wakeland, directing the varsity Lady Cats. Inside Coach Wiggins recruited Wildcats all-time leading goal scorer Tony Bravo to help with the camp along with his Wildcats Assistant Coach Ross Hicks, Lady Cats Head Coach Jesus DeLeon, Lady Cats Assistant Coach Joel Bailey, former Wildcat goalkeeper Chris Hefner and Wiggins’ wife Megan, a teacher at Douglas Intermediate School. Coach Wiggins said the emphasis is the same for every age group: passing and manipulating the ball in an attempt to keep and control the ball. Coach Wiggins said others can still get involved with the camp just by showing up. Campers were also given food and drink coupons at the camp.
