Why This Camp?

Dear Player, Parents & Coaches,

As Director of Sport EuroTour, a nationally recognized leader in international field hockey programs abroad, we asked ourselves, "What could we do to introduce all USA players to this high-end level and quality of field hockey training?" (That was in 2001 - 10,000 campers ago.)

The answer - Olympic Gold Medalists and Top International Coaches and Players coming to the USA to train US players, implementing a European camp format.

The BEST coaches assembled in one place in the USA - without exception.
The BEST technical skill training in the USA - absolutely.
The MOST fun - definitely.

How can we say we're the best?

Thomas Tichelman

Because we start with the best to get the best, demonstarted by our relationship with our Technical Advisor and co-founder, Thomas Tichelman, FIH "Master Coach" a Grade 1 Developmental Coach (the only one in the World with that designation). He is also exclusive camp provider to the European Hockey Federation - and he is a former Olympic Silver Medal coach with the Dutch Men's National Team and currently with the Dutch Olympic Gold Medal Women's team. And there's more...

Who Played in the
World Cup?

World Camp Alum...
Three members of the US National team, Melissa Gonzalez, Emily Wold and Caitlin VanSickle attended Camp when they were in high school - along with former staff member, Katie O'Donnell. That's almost a 1/3 of the team. All coached by World camp co-owner, Tjerk van Herwaarden, who was assistant coach with our National team at the World Cup in Holland. They played GREAT!

You Said It...

Fairfax High has attended World Camp for the past 3 years at Swarthmore and the girls continue to rave about the program and the quality of the coaches.  It's been the best reviewed camp I've had them go to in 13 years of coaching.

World Camp USA was honestly one of the best experiences of my life. I learned so much, in four days. It was such a happy environment, and the staff was amazing. I wish I didn't have to leave today, and wish I could go back every year. It was an amazing opportunity that I was able to go this year, and it was the best time of my life. Thank you World Camp USA; Coach Steve, Wally, LG, Jopie, Judge, LuLu, Gurt, Bjourn, Arnie, Rein, Bart, and Becca.

Thank you so much for one of the best and most fun experiences of my life. I've learned so much, from the most amazing hockey ever to some pretty snazzy dancing! :) I am totally going to come back next year and I hope to see everyone there! I miss it already! Thank you!

I just wanted to take a quick moment to thank you and your staff for putting on an awesome camp for my girls. I heard from each class throughout the camp and everyone had rave reviews - from the instruction to the tournament play, to the coaches, and the theme nights. It was by far their favorite camp in years.
I heard my senior group did very well, making it all the way to the final game where they lost a tough one by a goal.
I can't say enough - it's a great feeling knowing your girls are coming home prepared, pumped and excited for season to begin in a week. Thanks for all you do and for putting on an outstanding camp. I hope my girls were courteous, respectful and followed the rules! :)

What you said...

"We've been dying to tell you that we have had a fantastic season! This year with the help of Bart, Freerk, Frederick, and Kiwi at World Camp, our team won four titles! For the first time in Sayville history, we came in first in our division, and are Suffolk County Champions, Small Schools Champions, as well as Long Island Finalists. We lost to Garden City, the team that went on to win the state championship. Thanks to you guys and our hard work, our season was everything we hoped for and more. Thanks again and Congratulations!!!" ~Alex, Brianna, and Liz - Sayville Field Hockey

"I wanted to give you some feedback on the camp. The girls said it was "AWESOME". ~Marisa Valenti - Coach Cheshire HS, CT,
