WHY WORLD CAMP USA?
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? With so many camps to choose from, what makes us World Camp USA different?
