Became a better player

This was the very first overnight camp my daughter attended. She went with a few friends, but also met many new friends. She loved being away from home, having her own room, eating in the cafeteria and being silly with all the girls at night. She also loved the coaches and became a better field hockey player!

Great Environment for Learning!

“Nike Camp is a great experience. They provide and friendly fun environment for you child to learn important field hockey skills. The instructors make sure the skills are learned by all even if it means taking a little extra time. No one is left behind. They give an evaluation at the end of camp so the girls can see where they excell and what they need to work on. It a nice thing to have for comparison the following year. NIKE ROCKS!!”
