International coaches

I think this was a really rewarding camp overall. I loved skit night, and the coaches were awesome. They even took into consideration having coaches from different parts of the world, which showed everyone different skill levels overall. This camp was really fun and rewarding, I learned a lot. Thanks!!

Encouraging coaches

I would definitely recommend this camp to others. It had the perfect balance of fun and intensity. The coaches were very helpful and encouraging. The turf field was nice because it gave the campers the opportunity to learn new advanced skills that they couldn't learn if they usually play on grass. I loved the camp and if I wasn't a senior, I definitely would go back next year!!!

One of the best camps I've ever been to.

The Nike Field Hockey Camp is a place where new friends are a guarantee. The coaches are always so happy and they never overworked any camper. You are placed in a group where you will be comfortable skill wise and age wise. This is a camp where we don't always play field hockey, there are other activities as well, like, going to the beach, skit night, and hanging in the lounge. The Nike Field Hockey Camp was one of the best camps I've ever been to.

Great individual attention

Great individual attention during game play. Letting the girls know what they need to work on to improve was great. The best of the 3 camps my daughter attended this summer. And that is what she said.

Learned a lot

Both my girls had a wonderful time. They felt that they learned a lot and improved on some skills that they already knew. They felt that playing with players of all different levels was great. They met many new friends and enjoyed the fun activities and down time with them all.

Great Learning Experience

“The camp promotes play and the fun of the game. It gives a chance to learn in a less pressure filled environment than in the middle of a season to win a game. It has a good balance of field hockey and socialization- I enjoyed meeting a new friend.”

Learned from International Players

“I had a great time learning from the international players. They provided a whole different view on game play that I'm hoping to bring back to my team. Every coach was absolutely incredible and helped enormously with my college recruiting process!”

Get a taste of college

I would recommend Nike camp to anyone who enjoys playing the game. The coaches teach you lots of good information. You also get a good little college experience. You have to be on time to the field and to meals. Rooming is fun too because you make new friends and learn to get along with others.

The Best!

This is the best for Field Hockey. I have done this FH Camp at Endicott College the last two years and did 2 weeks this year. This is one of the best camps I go to, and I play Varsity Ice Hockey, and JV Lax as a Freshmen at my HS. I want to play FH in College, and I think this camp will help me.

Amazing week

Had an amazing week at this camp. It was really interesting to be able to play with international players, yet also see familiar coaches from nearby high schools and colleges. I learned so many new things while improving on the old. Had so much fun with my friends, and we can't wait to come back next year.
