Learn new skills

I would recommend Nike Camp to others because it is a great experience to be able to play on a college turf field with college players and coaches. By going to Nike FH Camp, you learn a lot more about the sport and leave camp with information you can share with others.

Great quality camp

My daughter attended the Nike Field Hockey Camp at Adelphi and absolutely loved it. She plays soccer and basketball and has attended other local camps but simply felt that this was the greatest. Couldn't wait to go back every day and is looking forward to next year's camp. She was a total beginner and spoke highly of the attention and instruction that the staff provided.

Very impressed

My daughter was very impressed with the coaching staff and how they took a personal interest in each player. They gave the kids plenty of breaks (it was hot) and were not too intense. My daughter came back to the camp a second time this year. She was very inspired by the coaches last year and participated in the futures program through the winter. We will definitely be back next year!

Top Notch Camp!

“My daughter loved this camp it was very hands on and personal. I took my daughter to a much bigger division 1 camp and she like this camp so much more because at the Nike camp she met all the coaches and the coaches knew her name. She learned so much more at the Nike camp. My daughter and I would highly recommend this camp to any field hockey player.”

Great learning environment

If you love field hockey and you want to get better this is definitely the camp to go to. Everybody wants you to improve and to have fun while you do so. You learn so much in just 4 days. What ever you need help with, the instructor will help you and by the end of the week you will be much better at that skill.

Futures tryouts

They provide a lot of good instruction, and incorporate fun into practice. I loved the tournament at the end and my counselor. I also liked all the non-skill oriented contests and that they provided outside opportunities (AKA Futures tryouts)
