Camp Description

Day Camp: Our day camp is perfect for beginner to intermediate field hockey players grades 2 - 8. Our goal is to provide a positive field hockey experience where each individual grows technically and tactically. Each day will start with technical development and after lunch, will conclude with small game play. The day camp will promote skill growth, inspire teamwork, and help develop a love for the game!

Overnight Camp: The objective of our overnight camp is to instruct all campers regardless of ability level in the techniques and tactics required to grow their game. Fundamental skills are emphasized combined with offensive and defensive specific tactics. Small game play will occur every day as well as a camp 7v7 tournament and some 11v11 play. Each team will participate in team bonding activities that are designed to specifically assist in building team chemistry, communication, and leadership. Our goal is to provide a positive field hockey experience for each camper and each team. Campers are invited to attend as individuals or as part of a team grades 8-12.

Elite Overnight Camp: Our inaugural Field Hockey Elite Camp will challenge campers technically, tactically and physically. This comprehensive camp is for intermediate to advanced players who are looking for an elite experience. We will cover hockey tactics including pressing, outletting, defensive structures, as well as advanced technical skills. We will be teaching how to review film for tactical and technical growth. Additionally, athletes will get the chance to experience a college style workout in our athletic strength and conditioning center with our head strength and conditioning coach. This summer camp will prove to be a regarding developmental experience for all participants.
