Safe environment

As a parent of a camper, one main priority for me was that she was safe. I truly feel this priority was accomplished during my daughter's stay at camp.

Awesome week with my team!

As the captain of my high school team, I had an awesome week and I know my team also enjoyed it. During day sessions, I learned a few new moves and definitely improved my over game skills. During night sessions, my teammates and I became closer and more comfortable playing together.

Positive experience

My daughter had a great time at the Nike Field Hockey Camp in Worcester and she can't wait to go back next year. It was her first overnight camp and I couldn't have hoped for a more positive experience. She learned a lot and it was obvious at her recent game.

Boosted my confidence!

I would definitely recommend Nike Field Hockey Camps to other people. I learned about new skills and rules, I improved the skills I already knew, and I met plenty of new friends. I feel like this camp boosted my confidence in my game and gave me more tools to work with during a field hockey game.

Wonderful Experience

“What a wonderful experience for my daughter! She participated in the extended camp, leery of the sleep over experience being only 11 years old. She met a wonderful group of girls, and I had a difficult time getting her to come home each night. The coaches were very encouraging, helping to increase the confidence in her abilities. She can't wait to return next year...and do the ‘sleep away.’”

Great role models

The staff at Worcester State engaged the students appropriately. They made them feel welcome and they made them feel like they were part of something bigger than themselves. My daughter's skill level improved tremendously. But not only did she grow as a player but gained confidence and independence as a young girl!! That means the world to me and I couldn't ask for better role models than the staff at Worcester State Nike Camp and Coach Lauren Chenevert!!
