    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.

    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.
