Kickin' It Soccer Camp

Marquette, Michigan


Director: David Poggi
NMU Men's Soccer Head Coach


Coach David Poggi enters his third year as head coach of the NMU Wildcats Soccer program and Director of the Wildcats Soccer Experience Youth Camps. During this short time, hundreds of young soccer stars have participated in age and ability designed programming for all ages (“Little Kickers” to “College Recruiting”). Camps are offered throughout the year and a complete listing of the 2018-19 offerings can be found here.

 

Poggi graduated from Oregon in 1983 with a bachelor’s degree in sociology. He earned his master’s degree in physical education, athletic administration and sports psychology from Oregon in 1985. He also holds a United States Soccer Federation A license, and brings to Northern Michigan almost 30 years of coaching experience at the professional, collegiate and youth club levels with both genders.

 

Prior to moving to the U.P., Poggi spent a short time as the Director of Coaching with the Houston Dynamo affiliate of Louisiana and the men’s soccer coach at Division III Sewanee (Tenn.). During this time his teams were recognized for excellence on the pitch (training 12 all-Southern Athletic Association honorees) and earned high marks in the classroom (placing 79 players on the SAA academic honor roll and earning two National Soccer Coaches Association of America Team Academic Awards).

 

Poggi also served as the men’s coach at NCAA Division II Truman State (Mo.) and NCAA Division I Wisconsin-Green Bay, leading both teams to several conference championships and an NCAA National Tournament berth.

 

At the professional level, he led the Lafayette SwampCats of the Eastern Indoor Soccer League to regular and postseason titles and the Utah Freezz of the World Indoor League to a first ever post season playoff run. Internationally, Poggi has coached in Denmark and Belize and traveled to Europe and South America with youth players and teams throughout his career.
