NXT FIeld Hockey Fundamentals

Program

NXT Field Hockey Camp

 NXT bridges the gap between the traditional township program and the competitive club experience. 

  • Excellent skills training delivered in a fun, supportive and enthusiastic environment.
  • Our curriculum is easily differentiated among players with different skill sets to ensure that each player receives the proper balance of challenge and repetition.
  • NXT coaches are all current and previous players of the game looking to share their love and passion for the sport. 

Each day consists of learning multiple new skills, as well as small-sided competitive games. We welcome players of any and all ability levels! This is a four-day camp.

Players should bring:

  • Bring a snack, sunscreen and a water bottle.
  • Pack a lunch

NXT Safety:

  • A certified Athletic Trainer will be onsite every day of camp.

& More:

  • Each player will receive a NXT t-shirt and camp give-aways!
  • We have awesome camp prizes, water games, competitions and other fun activities throughout the week.
  • Photos will be taken and posted on social media so the parents and players can follow along with the fun!
