If you have a group of eight or more campers registering for the same camp, each camper is eligible for a discount. Please have someone contact the US Sports Camps office at 1-800-645-3226 with the names of each camper in the group and we will create a unique discount code for your group. Campers may then register individually through the website at their convenience and apply the offer code during check out. *Discount amount varies by program. Please call for details.


We cannot offer scholarships due to NCAA regulations. Our affiliation with NCAA coaches and schools puts us in a position where any scholarship money can be seen as an inducement to a future collegiate athlete. This puts our coaches and our host universities in jeopardy of damaging their status with the NCAA and incurring penalties at the hands of their organizing body.

Camps are open to any and all entrants, limited only by number, age, grade level and/or gender.

    She returns every year!

    July 15, 2019: My daughter had an amazing experience at the Nike Field Hockey Camp at University of San Diego for the fourth year in a row! She improved her overall skill level again, as well as targeted a few field moves she was hoping to master. The coaches were fantastic. They are positive, knowledgeable, and fun. The coaches provided wonderful advice about preparing for college with regards to playing field hockey in college and being prepared academically for the college application experience. My daughter loved the dorm experience and made more new friends from field hockey programs around the country.

    It was an awesome experience!

    July 15, 2019: I loved meeting new people and learning new skills. My reverse hits got so much better after this camp. I also learned a lot from the recruitment talk. The only thing that could be improved is the time we had to wake up. I personally thought it was too early.

    Loved camp!

    July 28, 2018: Daughter was really happy with the mix of hard work and fun. The SDU campus was beautiful and not too far from the airport. We flew in from Norcal. Lindsey loved the nice dorm but disappointed that the AC was not working. She wants to be back in 2019. Lindsey stated that she wished there was a better way of placing the girls according their skills, rather than parent’s assessment.

    • 5/5.
    Overall Thoroughly Enjoyed the Experience

    July 17, 2018: She loved the amount of appreciation the coaches had for the sport and especially enjoyed the variation between each day. There were new drills everyday that were always fun and taught a new skill. She said the camp taught her the skills and techniques she wanted to learn and the coaches were so spectacularly helpful and talented!

    Amazing Summer Experience!

    July 16, 2018: This was my daughter's third year at Nike Field Hockey camp at University of San Diego. This was another amazing experience for her. She grew tremendously as a field hockey player and came home full of stories about drills, scrimmages, and fun in the dorms. Right after camp, we went straight to a family vacation in Hawaii and my daughter begged us to let her take her field hockey stick on the plane with her to practice while on the island. Thank you for providing this amazing summer experience! It's very organized and you provide a really positive environment for the kids...we encouraged friends to sign up this year (and one did) and will continue to do it next year as well! Sydney looks forward to this camp each year and we actually had to cut out a few days of our Hawaii trip because Sydney really didn't want to miss out on camp!

    Great Camp!

    July 21, 2017: It was a really great camp! I had a lot of fun! My highlights were probably when we scrimmaged, discovering where to go for vegan options, learning how to properly do forehand spins, and talking with my roommates.

    — Gabriella T. Camper

    Made her a stronger and more confident player!

    July 18, 2017: This camp and staff challenged her which in turn made her a stronger and more confident player. Another highlight was as an overnight camper she learned independence and time management. She loved it, being she's only 12. The program allowed me to trust she was in good hands. Last but not least what she also mentioned was how she loved the staff and how reliable and knowledgeable they were and how they believed in her.

    We can't wait for next year!

    July 17, 2017: My daughter attended Nike Field Hockey Camp at University of San Diego for the first time last year as a 12-year-old and as an extended day camper. During the pick up and drop off each day, it was clear to me that this is an incredibly safe and organized camp experience with coaches and staff who know the girls by name and are dedicated to everyone having a great learning and social experience. This year, I decided to register my daughter to stay overnight. I am so pleased with her experience with the full overnight camp this year. The dorm experience helped her to build friendships that will last beyond the camp. My daughter was thrilled with every aspect of the camp and reported back that the coaches were positive and motivating, they provided a lot of individualized coaching and feedback for specific positions and playing styles, and the scrimmages were a lot of fun. We can't wait for next year!

    Organized, safe, and motivating

    The Nike Field Hockey Camp in San Diego was an outstanding experience. My daughter is a beginner and this was a wonderful way to introduce her to the sport in a safe and fun environment with knowledgeable and motivating coaches. There was a wide variety of skill levels amongst the campers, but the coaches did an amazing job with challenging every camper within their current skill level. The camp felt very organized, safe, and the coaches were great role models for the girls. I appreciate that they offered an information session for the girls on navigating the process to become a college athlete. We look forward to returning next summer!

    Fun memories and friends

    This camp welcomes all levels of skill!! Whether this is your first year or you've been playing for 10, you will benefit from this experience. Most of the girls you meet you will see during the season and trust me when I say you will literally run to them when you see them because you will remember all of the fun and interesting memories you made together. This camp will provide you memories and friends that will last a lifetime.

    Exceeded expectations

    Although I was originally reluctant to do an overnight camp, this camp went far beyond my expectations. The girls were very nice and the coaches were super encouraging! They taught us how to prepare ourselves for the season and even for college. The dorms were also very nice and since there was four to a room I got to meet many new girls from all around the United States and even out of country! I would highly recommend this camp to anyone looking to improve their skills and enter the world of field hockey.

    Loved this camp

    This camp was so fun. I enjoyed myself. The bed was okay, but the food, the instructions, and the overall camp itself was amazing. I loved making new friends and working on skills to improve. They gave awards so people had a chance to shine. It was amazing, and I would totally go again.

    Individual attention

    They work with individual people equally, giving each person a chance to play and work on skills. Also, they give each player credit for good plays/skills.

    Grew as a player

    I found the groove of the camp to be very relaxing, which helped me focus on learning more skills and playing in games. The coaching staff answers questions with gusto and often times explain even further than I had ever thought possible. I asked for feedback and I got it. It helped grow exponentially as a player.

    Incredibly organized

    From a parent's stand point, this was our first time, I felt everything was incredibly organized and ran smooth. Registration and checking in was easy. My daughter had a great experience, she came back very motivated, and had improved her skill level. We will definitely be back next year.

    Very impressed

    This was a quality camp, from top to bottom. My daughter said that she learned more by lunch on the second day than she has learned in a whole week at other camps. The coaches somehow found a way to make the camp challenging, yet so much fun for the girls! That is truly a rare combination! We were all very impressed with these people and hope to attend more of their camps in the future.
