The Next Level Field Hockey camp at Landon Summer is structured to rapidly develop and improve each player’s skills while teaching the latest techniques in a fun, positive environment. Each day will include a variety of field hockey drills in which players work on stick skills (dribbling, passing, receiving, shooting and advanced moves), as well as defensive tackling, positioning, and team strategies. We will also play small-sided and full-field games to allow campers to practice the skills they have learned in a game situation. Coaches include current and former University of Maryland Division I field hockey players.

Rain Day Activities: In the event of severe inclement weather, our campers will be engaged in the following indoor activities: 

  • Technical sessions (field positions, playing styles, etc.)

We will follow the weather closely to make sure that campers get back onto the field as soon as the rain stops, and it is safe to play.
