If you want to learn to play the game of Field Hockey or you already play and you want a chance to develop your skills then this is the camp for you. Four days of intensive coaching on the “Turf” field at West Ridge Middle School with international hockey coaches many of whom coach in the US Futures program and all of whom have extensive playing experience at NCAA Div 1 or senior International level both men’s and women’s..

If you are new to the game then the importance of the surface you learn on is a key factor to appreciate. This fast exciting sport has grown worldwide with the advent of smooth Turf fields and the development of specialist skills unique to the surface has meant that it is vital that early skills are developed on the correct (non-grass) surface. Whether your child is entering Middle School or starting hockey at High School, or just wants to try a new sport our beginners program which is built around US Field Hockey’s FUNdamentals program will quickly have them playing and loving the game. The camp is also open to both boys and girls and at the beginners level the focus is on FUN.

For more advanced players the four day course will cover advanced skills and follow many of the techniques taught through the US Futures program. Reverse shooting, advanced dribbling skills, specialist tricks to beat defenders and conversely good defensive tactics to force the hand of unsuspecting attackers are some of the areas to be covered during the 12 hours of intensive instruction. Specialist goalkeeping coaching will be available and for very advanced older players a drag flick clinic will be run each day as part of the overall program.

Open to all players (boys and girls) aged 7 – 18.     Field Hockey Sticks will be available to borrow for beginners.  The program is led by head coach Ali Murdoch who played 15 years in the Irish Men’s National League and has coached with the US Futures Program and at the US Nationals. Each day will include focused skills training and scrimmages in skill appropriate groups.
