    Elevated level of play

    My daughter enjoyed the Nike Field Hockey camp and felt that it totally elevated her level of playing. She feels that she will be better prepared going into the fall season at her middle school.

    Great for beginners

    This camp was very helpful I am a beginner and have never played in a game of field hockey before and this camp really helped me so when it's time for try outs at my school I will be more experienced. I played with people in my age group who were more advanced so they tried to help me improve and when I still struggled the couch would help me with techniques. This camp was very helpful.

    Awesome coaching

    Coaching was on point. The interaction between coaches and players was awesome. Skills and drills were a great way to warm up to game play where there was constant feedback from coaches. I will definitely be back next summer.

    Great director

    Gloria at Adelphi is the type of head-coach that motivates young women to push themselves in the best way. Her Nike field hockey camp has inspired my daughter, who has been attending for 2 years. Not only to stay focused in hockey, but to remember her academics in achieving her future sporting goals.

    Most competitive

    My daughter has attended several field hockey camps. By far, she feels the Nike Camp offers the most competitive environment, strong skill training & great coaching. She will return next year for her third year at Adelphi's Nike Camp!

    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. Camper and Parents of Camper extremely happy about the quality of this camp

    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)

    My daugher appreciated the professionalism and specific suggestions for how to improve her game. As her mom, I was very pleased how smoothly I was able to drop off her Epi-Pen for her peanut allergy. Also, it was fun for my daughter and her friends -- a great experience.

    Best sports camp

    This is the best sports camp in general I have been to. I was hesitant about going at first because I didn't know anyone who was going and I wasn't from the area, but I turned out to make a lot of friends there, and the group they assign you into becomes really close even though you only meet for four days. My skills also improved so much! People have asked me on my school team how I am I so much better since last year and I honestly think it's from these four days!

    — Adelphi University Camper '14

    Very impressed

    I recommend this camp to any player who wants to improve their skills. We worked on the fundamentals as well as some very advanced play. The campus was beautiful and the coaches were positive and always willing to help the campers. I was very impressed by this camp
