US Sports Camps Brings a New Field Hockey Camp to the Boston Area

Saturday, Mar 30, 2019

Long time Nike Field Hockey Camp Director Andy Whitcomb is set to instruct campers at Nike Field Hockey Camp at Curry College on the fundamentals and mechanics of field hockey. The new addition welcomes players from across the northeast to partake in a unique camp experience.

Whitcomb currently is the Head Field Hockey Coach and Nike Field Hockey Camp Director at Mount Holyoke College. She recently took her field hockey team to the NEWMAC conference tournament for the 20th straight year, improving her overall record at the school to now 237-154-1. With the extensive field hockey knowledge that she is bringing to Curry, field hockey players can improve their skills under collegiate level coaches with a passion to grow the game.

This Boston field hockey camp will take place at Curry College located about 7 miles from downtown Boston. Nestled near the Blue Hills Reservation, a conservation state park, Curry College sits on 131 acres surrounded by forests and meadows. With multiple state-of-the-art athletic facilities, such as the Walter M. Katz Turf Field where the field hockey camp resides, Curry College offers players a unique opportunity to train in the sport they love.

“Andy has been one of our field hockey directors for over 10 years now, and we are happy to add a new field hockey camp with her,” says Siera Love, VP of Nike Field Hockey Camps. “Her passion and knowledge for the sport is evident in the way she coaches young athletes.”

While at camp, players can choose between an overnight and extended day program, which offers 3 training sessions a day and meals that take place in the on-campus dining halls with fellow campers. Whitcomb and her staff have designed a program where campers undergo positional work through live game situations and drills, designed to ready them for their upcoming field hockey season.

This camp is set to run July 18-21st and is geared towards girls ages 10-18 of all ability levels.

Players, coaches, and parents interested in Nike Field Hockey Camps can visit or call 1-800-645-3226.
