Wildcat soccer camp to be held this summer

The Mount Si High School soccer organization will be holding a summer camp for aspiring young athletes.

The fourth annual Wildcat Attack Camp will have two sessions campers can choose from. The sessions run four days each, from June 30 to July 3, and July 7 to 10. Both sessions are Monday through Thursday, and held in the mornings between 9 and 11:30 a.m. at Snoqualmie Middle School. The camps are aimed at boys and girls ages 5 to 13.

Each camp costs $100, and includes a T-shirt. Equipment will be provided, but campers are asked to bring their own water and snacks.

Campers will learn skills to be successful in both Wildcat soccer program and in club soccer at the high school level. The camp is run by Mount Si High School coach Darren Brown. Brown has led his boys’ and girls’ teams at Mount Si to a number of play-off appearances over the past few years as coach, and also led Westview High School’s (Beaverton) boys team to the Oregon state high school playoffs twice. In addition to his high school coaching, Brown also coaches Snoqualmie Middle School’s girls’ team, who won their second straight league championship this spring. Brown will be assisted by current and ex-Wildcat players who have found homes in college soccer, a list that is growing.

Registration brochures are available at all Snoqualmie Valley schools’ main offices.
