The 2019 Hinsdale Central Boys Soccer Coaching Staff returns for another great year in Hinsdale, featuring what would best be described as one of the strongest high school coaching staffs in the state of Illinois.

Head Coach Michael Wiggins returns for his 26th year as a varsity high school head coach, his 18th in Hinsdale, working with some of the most talented coaches around. 

Coach Wiggins is assisted by Coach Peter Ginter, the former head coach at both Addison Trail and Willowbrook High Schools. The Junior Varsity is led by Coach James VanDenburgh, the former head coach at Hinsdale South for many years.

Coach Madonia, our current Head Girls Soccer Coach at Central, leads the sophomore boys level returning for his 6th year. At the freshman level, the incoming freshman boys get introduced to an incredible high school team experience led by two Illinois Soccer Hall of Famers in Jack Ferraro and Skip Begley. Coach Ferraro was the former two time State Champion boys coach at Sandburg High School, and Coach Skip Begley previously led the Hinsdale Central boys and girls programs, leading the girls to at State Championship in 2009.

An entire coaching staff in the boys program has been assembled with coaches who are current or former head coaches at the high school level, and is enhanced with one more coach assisting the program in Alexander Saric. "Sarke", the current Goalkeeping Coach with the Chicago Fire joins us again as a volunteer assistant, adding on emore layer of excellence in a staff that does a tremendous job teaching our student athletes about success both on and off the field.
