North Star Camp for Boys

Staff Spotlight: Craig Madigan

We're not sure what team Craig roots for
We'll do our best to spare Craig Madigan comments about Lucky Charms and  leprechauns. He hails from Ireland, where he's very active in sports and coaching. He's attending the Limerick Institute of Technology where he's studying business with sports management. He's worked extensively with youth soccer teams, training and coaching. In my conversation with Craig, I learned that they actually refer to soccer as soccer, not football, the term that most other countries use.

Craig is eager to come to the United States. He'll put his coaching skills to good use. While he will do some soccer instruction, his main activity area will be golf. We're thrilled to have Craig on board for his first summer.
