Camp Descriptions

Community & Middle School Camps:  Seacoast United's Community and Middle School field hockey camps are designed to help beginner and emerging players develop individual and team skills, while improving their technique and understanding of the game.  The emphasis will be to build a solid foundation, through small group and individual instruction.  The camps will also allow players to have fun, while increasing self confidence and making new friends.  Through a variety of field hockey drills, games, and development stations, you'll be able to practice all of the techniques used in the sport, such as:  dribbling, passing and receiving, ball control, shooting, defensive tackling, positioning, etc.  This program is open to all skill levels and players are grouped based on previous experience on the first day, to ensure that everyone receives the appropriate instruction.  

High School Camps:  The Seacoast United Field Hockey High School Camps are for incoming freshmen, JV, and Varsity players in preparation for their upcoming high school fall season.  Players will be put through their paces in a number of ways, consistently working in small groups with a specific functional activity.  The camp focuses on individual skills in defending, attacking, finishing, and transition play.  Regardless of position, players will be exposed to all areas of the game to help them understand the different functions of the team.
