    Great instruction

    July 14, 2018: Professionally learning new skills throughout the day and applying them directly in games together with players from all over the world every evening was really a great experience for our child!

    Loved it

    July 9, 2018: This was one of the best camps I have attended. The entire experience was lots of fun and the coaching staff was unbelievably helpful and friendly.

    Passionate Coaches!

    July 31, 2017: She enjoyed the atmosphere, the fact that the staff were so passionate about the sport. She also enjoyed meeting other competitive athletes from many other countries. In my opinion there is nothing more to be done to improve the camp. Maybe having the dorms closer to the field but I know that the head coach is trying to make that happen :)

    little time standing around!

    July 12, 2017: The camp went at a great pace. My daughter was always learning and active, with very little time standing around because the activities were designed well and run well by the staff. She also liked the mix of instruction and game play. She was able to learn and practice a skill during drills and then get a chance to try it out in scrimmage play.

    very impressed!

    July 10: 2017: Our daughter called us from camp to rave about how much better shooting skills were now. The skills training was wonderful and she felt very safe in the camp environment. She was paired up with a very nice roommate of her age and skill level. We are very appreciative for the professionalism of you camp and care of our child. Everything was wonderful and the student athletes were great with the kids. We actually drove up Alexandra Grabow, who is on the Berkeley field hockey team and helps at the camp. She had initially recommended this camp to us because it really focused on field hockey. That is what Isabella was looking for. We had heard that this camp really focused on field hockey skills. Rather than a field hockey themed camp that is more of just a summer overnight camp. This camp really helped our daughter hone her skills. My only thought for improvement and we had heard from other parents - that it would be a good idea to advise the campers to bring their own snacks for the later practice sessions in the evening. Since there is no food available after dinner. Other than that the camp and the staff were wonderful. Again, we were very impressed.Thanks again!

    Highly recommend this camp

    I would highly recommend this camp to all the other Field Hockey Parents. My daughter came home with full confidence. This is her first overnight camp . I never noticed her talking much about her hockey experience. Coaching staff is very approachable, excellent stick skills instructions, evaluating each and every player, full 11v 11 scrimmage based on players skill set. She is for sure coming back again next year.

    Great for improving skills

    I highly recommend this camp to any field hockey player looking to improve their skills. You will learn to play with unfamiliar teammates and opponents as well as focus your energy on the sport. Under the guidance of the UC Berkeley coaches, you will learn a variety of new skills and tactics. It was the highlight of my summer.

    Can't wait to do it again

    I would recommend this camp to anyone because it offers a little taste of what the college game is like and how college life works. My game really improved during this camp, and I was able to improve on skills that I don't often work on. The coaching staff was very nice, and intense, and they were able to help me one on one when I needed it. I definitely loved the camp, the coaching, and the campus and can not wait to go again!

    Inspiring camp!

    I had a great time at Shellie Onstead's field hockey camp. I learned a lot of new skills and was encouraged by the positive coaching. I really enjoyed the campus tours and hearing personal testimonials from current players. Really inspired me to continue my pursuit of becoming a collegiate Field Hockey athlete/student.
