This summer’s Kick, Lead and Dream Soccer Camp hosted 300 kids at Cooper Park in Mountain View.

Dozens of countries’ flags rippled through the air at Cooper Park in Mountain View earlier this summer, with each flag representing a team of local kids wanting to spend two weeks of their break playing soccer.

The annual Kick, Lead and Dream (KLD) Soccer Camp has been completely volunteer and donation based since Akash Nigam, then a freshman at Mountain View High, launched it in 2007. Run under the aegis of the Sunnyvale Police Activities League, the camp provides low-income students a place to learn lessons on and off the soccer field.

Los Altos resident Danielle Carter swims the 100-meter butterfly at the Speedo Junior National Championships earlier this month at Stanford University’s Avery Aquatic Center.

After a summer filled with crack-of-dawn practices and ultra-competitive swim meets, Danielle Carter is finally taking a break.

“It’s nice,” the 2019 graduate of Los Altos High said. “It feels good, but it’s weird not thinking of swimming and practice.”
