    Safe Environment

    August 3, 2018: As it was her first time being introduced to the sport and her being one of the youngest ones there I was nervous how it would all play out. Everyone was welcoming and took her under their wing. It was obvious that the coaches gave and expected respect at all times from the players. It was well organized and I felt safe dropping my 10 year old off knowing she would be well cared for.

    Can't wait to come back

    July 27, 2018: My daughter really loves this camp! It is her second year attending and she can’t wait to be back next year! The coaching was top notch! The facility was clean. Everything was organized and easy to check in and out. Her only complaint was that she wishes the breakfast was better, but she did say the food was better than last year!

    Passionate coaches

    July 20, 2018: The Coaching was phenomenal. My child was fortunate to have a young woman from VA who played on the indoor Olympic team and she had such passion for the sport it was infectious!!! It truly enhanced the opportunity to play for a new coach that was foreign to her. The coaching was at a whole other level than what we were accustomed to and I saw a dramatic improvement in my child’s skills. There is not one thing I could possibly say should change about this camp. It was such a positive experience for my child being her first sleep away camp and everything about it was top notch!

    Loved coach Alex!

    July 27, 2017: Coach Alex was the highlight of camp. My daughter is a beginner and has been a field hockey player for a total of 7 days: 3 at previous clinic and 4 days at your camp. Coach Alex was patient, kind, and extremely knowledgeable.

    Improved skills!

    July 21, 2017: She learned a lot and improved her field hockey skills. She also met some great girls and had a lot of fun. It was her first overnight camp experience and a very positive one. The university was great and the dorm rooms were clean and well maintained. She enjoyed the activities and liked her counselors. Her only criticism was the food.

    Enjoyed everything!

    July 20, 2017: Carolyn says she enjoyed everything. This was her first year as an overnight camper and she really loved it! She liked having a chance to do field play since during the rest of the year she focuses on playing goalie. She says the skills she was taught at camp definitely helped her development as a field player.

    Cant wait to come back

    August 4, 2016: This was the first overnight camp I've been to, and the coaches and campers were so nice! I learned a ton about my position on defense that I'll use this season! I'd definately come back again!

    Loved it!

    July 30, 2016: I have been going to this Nike Field Hockey Camp for the past 2 years and I love it! The first year I went as a field player, which was really helpful because it gave me a lot of confidence for my first day of tryouts. And for my second year, I went as a goal keeper and I reviewed all the basics and got my mind refreshed for the upcoming season. The coaches are awesome and the people there are amazing too! I met my best friends there!! It's a great experience, you put hard work in and get to have a ton of fun!

    Comfortable atmosphere

    I loved this camp! Everyone was super nice and they separated everyone by skill level which created a really comfortable atmosphere within our group. Night games were my favorite though, and our team became really close by the end of the session! I can't wait to go back next year!

    Awesome week with my team!

    As the captain of my high school team, I had an awesome week and I know my team also enjoyed it. During day sessions, I learned a few new moves and definitely improved my over game skills. During night sessions, my teammates and I became closer and more comfortable playing together.

    Positive experience

    My daughter had a great time at the Nike Field Hockey Camp in Worcester and she can't wait to go back next year. It was her first overnight camp and I couldn't have hoped for a more positive experience. She learned a lot and it was obvious at her recent game.

    Boosted my confidence!

    I would definitely recommend Nike Field Hockey Camps to other people. I learned about new skills and rules, I improved the skills I already knew, and I met plenty of new friends. I feel like this camp boosted my confidence in my game and gave me more tools to work with during a field hockey game.

    Wonderful Experience

    “What a wonderful experience for my daughter! She participated in the extended camp, leery of the sleep over experience being only 11 years old. She met a wonderful group of girls, and I had a difficult time getting her to come home each night. The coaches were very encouraging, helping to increase the confidence in her abilities. She can't wait to return next year...and do the ‘sleep away.’”

    Great role models

    The staff at Worcester State engaged the students appropriately. They made them feel welcome and they made them feel like they were part of something bigger than themselves. My daughter's skill level improved tremendously. But not only did she grow as a player but gained confidence and independence as a young girl!! That means the world to me and I couldn't ask for better role models than the staff at Worcester State Nike Camp and Coach Lauren Chenevert!!
