What makes our camps different?
2015-07-01 13.04.17

Not only do we only have top college or international coaches in a day camp experience, but we prepare the entire athlete with Play BEYOND the game activities throughout the day.  Players leave camps as better technical, tactical, and mentally-tough athletes. As we enter our 5th year, 9 out of 10 campers say they would “definitely” return to camp!

For 2016, Beyond Sticks offers 3 weeks of field hockey only camps for older players and now, two day camps in Leesburg, to help prepare future Loudoun County players for their inaugural season. For players aged 3rd-6th grade, check out our multi-sport camps.

For our USA Field Hockey Partner Camps, we ONLY hire current college coaches or international players and keep a 10:1 player to coach ratio so players have a lot of time working with all coaches but also get one assigned coach for their age and skill group during morning sessions.  Players leave with a personalized feedback form and lots of play beyond the game tools to help them gain the mental skills needed to prepare for preseason. Our coaches know what it takes to teach hockey the right way the first time and also teach hockey up to modern standards.  We focus on not only getting the basics right, but teaching “advanced skills” early, such as reverse hits, throwing, out letting and pressing strategies.

DSC_0442Lunch integrates our annually updated Play Beyond the Game” sessions.  These aren’t your regular classroom sessions, we build marshmallow towers, throw eggs off the roof and do team building games that get your on your feet, and get you thinking! Our workshops give athletes the tools to implement the lessons they learn in sports on and off the field. We build upon last years theme a day based curriculum to leave players with a workbook to help them with goal-setting during the off season and come the fall.

Last year both of our field hockey camps sold out, so sign up early!
