Learned a lot

Each day when I picked my daughter up from the Nike Lexington camp, she always was cheerful and had a big smile. She was grouped appropriately for her skill level, and loved the popsicles!!(: She loved her coach, learned a lot, and had fun. The Nike Lexington camp is for ANY player ready to improve.

Highly recommend this camp

Dear future camper,

I attended the Nike field hockey camp at Lexington this summer and had a really great camp experience! The coaches worked us hard, and I was sore at the end of each day, but the trade off was worth it! I improved so much over the four days, met girls from other schools, and heightened my desire to play at the college level. I highly recommend this camp. I was even invited to play futures! 

Best of luck to you, and I hope to see you out on the turf!

Wonderful experience

What a wonderful experience! As a late beginner, I was amazed at how well I was placed with other people of my level and age! Plus, the coaches were great at giving me a jump-start to learning how to play field hockey!

Great for first time players

My daughter had never played field hockey before and learned a lot. She enjoyed the coaching and the instruction. My daughter asked a lot of questions and they were all answered. She received Most Improved Player that week. I also particularly liked the comment sheet that the coaches sent home.

Great experience

Great experience, unlike other camps that we have experienced that pushed too hard - resulting in an injury, Nike camp was just enough - challenging but still safe & fun.

Can't wait until next year

The Nike Field Hockey Camp in Lexington was very well run. I thought the coaches and staff were there to help me in all areas and that they were very well educated in the sport. They were very kind and were willing to help you succeed.  I would definitely reccommend it to anyone and can't wait until next year!

Learned so much

Provides a very supportive environment, regardless of ability. WOnderful coaching and an excellent program. Both of my girls learned so much and had fun at the same time. The coaches fostered great teamwork skills and individual skills. My girls ended the week saying they would attend this camp everyday of the summer if they could.

Great Coaches

“Nike Field Hockey Camps are very good at bringing in very talented coaches. They are not only talented, but they have the ability to break down each aspect of the game into pieces that are more easily achievable. Overall, the Nike Camp did everything pretty well.”

Loved the staff

I really enjoy the friendly, motivational, and knowledgeable staff! The repetitive drills really improve my field hockey stick skills. In addition, the games at the end of the day allowed me to practice the skills I had worked on during the day.
