Wildcats Basketball Coach Clark Cipoletta Attracts Lots of Boys to Basketball Camp

Boys of all ages turned out Monday afternoon (June 10) to take part in Wildcats Basketball Coach Clark Cipoletta’s four-day Boys Basketball Camp in the main gym at Sulphur Springs High School. One camp was designed for boys entering kindergarten through five grade and another for boys entering sixth through the ninth grade. Coach Cipoletta is entering his sixth year as Wildcats Head Coach and his eighth year overall here. He has seen interest in basketball grow and his camp attendance reflects the interest. Coach Cipoletta also has noticed quite an increase in the skill level of his campers. Monday evening, after the first day of camp, Coach Cipoletta said it’s cool to see a large number of kids come out with a hunger to learn and grow in basketball. He credits area youth coaches for the developing skill level of camp players he sees. Coach Cipoletta said he likes the skills on display by his incoming ninth graders. He said he really likes developing players’ skills. He is a coach who admits to liking practice sessions perhaps even more than games. Coach Cipoletta said he likes to develop not only skills but also relationships with the campers. Three of the Wildcats’ graduating seniors helped Coach Cipoletta with camp Monday: Xavier Cork, Keaston Willis and Jeremiah Roland. Graduating manager Dylan Jester was also around to assist.
