SSISD Tennis camps got underway Monday (June 7) for campers entering kindergarten through the 12th grades.
Most of the camp activity was completed before heavy rainfall fell late Monday morning.
The UIL allows coaches to have camp for their high school players as long as a visiting coach conducts it.
Wildcats Tennis Coach Tony Martinez said 18-20 of his high school athletes are getting instruction from Van Head Tennis Coach Logan Daniell, a former tennis player at Texas Tech.
Meanwhile a camp for entering kindergarten through 4th grade boys and girls got underway Monday from 9 A.M. until 10:30 A.M.
Instructors included Wildcats’ Assistant Coach Betty Gooch and her sister Beverly, along with graduating Wildcats senior Harleigh Stegient, former Wildcat Jonah Kirkpatrick, now at East Texas Baptist University, and former high school tennis player Kevin Tanton.
About 20-25 in the youngest age group showed up.
More campers representing entering 5th and 6th graders and middle school grades 7 and 8 had camp from 10:30 A.M. until noon.
Coach Martinez said his camps drew entrants from Celeste, Mount Vernon, Winnsboro and Paris.
The camps are scheduled to continue through Thursday weather permitting.
