    Excellent Camp

    August 11, 2018: Excellent run camp. Shannon and Kate were awesome! Sally went from not wanting to go because she didn’t play much to loving the sport and being invited to the futures program. She may give up her thriving lax career for FH!

    Helped build confidence!

    August 7, 2018: This camp was a great introduction to field hockey for our daughter. She was a bit nervous going in on day one, but really enjoyed learning more about the sport, rules and drills throughout the week. As a result of camp, she has decided to sign up for the fall field hockey season. Thanks to all who were involved in the Chelmsford camp!

    Loved the team building!

    July 29, 2017: Janna's skill level and confidence in herself dramatically increased over the past week. She came home saying " you know what....I am pretty good at this. I can play well". The team building alone and making her feel valued and part of a team was way more than I could have asked for.

    Great Camp

    August 2, 2016: This camp was an amazing experience for my daughter. Not only did she learn the game, as she was a beginner, but really enjoyed the game. The instructors were able to easily teach to the level of the students and it was age appropriate. Great camp! My daughter is already signed up for rec field hockey after this experience!

    Great coaches!

    August 1, 2016: As a beginner going into high school, I could barely hit a ball before camp, but at the end of the week I had improved and could play with my team as an asset and not a burden. I was also able to identify the position I wanted to play in high school thanks to the coaches and their advice. I will definitely be attending next year.

    Impressed

    As a parent of a camper and high school varsity field hockey coach, I highly recommend this camp as a great introduction to field hockey and for intermediate players. The coaches are engaging, knowledgeable and kept the girls' attention through effective instructing while keeping things light and fun. I was impressed and my daughter is definitely signing-up again next year.

    Favorite week of summer

    One of my favorite weeks of summer! The coaches do a great job teaching to every level and ability and keep things fun and interesting. I have been going to their camps for years and every year I learn new skills and perfect the fundamentals.

    Great for beginners

    My daughter was a beginner who never held a stick before attending. She came away with understanding the fundamentals of field hockey and a love for the game. The camp allowed her to be placed with other girls at her same level and therefore she was not intimidated.

    Highly recommend to all players

    My two children attended the River Hawk Field Hockey camp. They had an amazing time learning new drills, meeting new coaches/friends, and mastering the skills to become a better player. I highly recommend this camp to any level player. My girls had a blast and plan on going next year!

    Great instruction

    Nike field hockey camps are a way to work on and play the game you love. It's a laid back camp but you accomplish a lot everyday. The staff is super nice. They give great advice on improving skills for players at all levels.

    Helpful for beginners

    I signed up for this camp not knowing a thing about field hockey, and within the 4 days I've learned so much and now feel comfortable and confident playing in a game.
