    Awesome!

    January 3, 2019: Our daughter started attending the Xplosive Field Hockey camp about three years ago. This camp provides excellent coaching focused on fundamentals, game play and fitness. And a lot of fun! It's a great experience whether you are attending with a team or as an individual (she's done both). We've taken our daughter to many high-level field hockey camps and the Xplosive Field Hockey camp is always ranked at the top. We can't wait to go back!
