    Great for Goalies

    Great goalie specific instruction. Very knowledgeable coaches who have played and coached the game. They push you to improve your skills but still make it fun. Instruction targets all level of play.

    Good size for personal instruction

    The Nike Field Hockey camp was a great experience for my daughter.  They focused on building great skills and had the girls work hard every day, but also gave them ample rest time as well. The size of the camp was also very good and allowed for personal instruction.

    Happy with second year

    This was my daughters second year of attending and stated she learned more even though it was her second year. She was very pleased with her evaluation from the coaching staff.

    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!

    Had a great time

    My daughter had a great time .She played a lot of hockey and was exhausted when it was over. She didn't know anyone going in, but was giving hugs goodbye at the end.

    Great Coaches!

    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!!”

    Awesome experience

    Nike camp was so much fun! The coaches were very enthusiastic about the game and the athletes there. They readily aided every player to help them improve personally. The coaches helped you to learn and perfect any skill you wanted help on. The whole experience was just awesome!

    Improved skills

    This summer I feel I improved my skills immensely at the Nike camp at McDaniel college. The instructors were qualified, organized and friendly. I met a lot of nice people who enjoy field hockey as much as I do and had a great time.

    Highly recommended

    This was my daughters first year attending a Nike field hockey camp and she absolutely loved everything about it! She made new friends, learned new skills and refined old ones, and she gained more responsibility by following an organized schedule and living independently in the college dorms. I would highly recommend this camp to first timers and experienced hockey players as well. She will be returning to the field this fall with a new found confidence thanks to the great coaches!
