WASHINGTON, D.C. - The Catholic University field hockey team will be holding two clinics this summer inside Cardinal Stadium on Saturday, June 29 and Sunday, June 30. The clinics are both instructional and informational and provide a great atmosphere to learn.
The clinics are open to middle school and high school athletes in grades 7-12 and run from 10 a.m., to 3 p.m., each day. Each clinic costs $100 and includes a reversible pinnie.
Both clinics are taught by the Cardinals' coaching staff, including head coach Heidi Lewis and assistant coaches Kristie Blumer and Megan Hut, as well as current players and almuni with at least a US FIeld Hockey Level 1 accreditation. The staff prides itself on teaching the sport to players of all ages and ability levels. The mechanics and drills taught at these clinics are the same used with the Catholic University players.
Saturday will be Dutch Day where assistant coach Megan Hut will lead campers through a day of European-style training, including drills from her experience playing and coaching in the Netherlands.
Sunday will be a competition day of fast-paced learning through games and contests. Take your game to the next level as the coaching staff will use a games-based approach to teach key offensive and defensive concepts.
Since 2011, the Catholic field hockey team has won four Landmark Conference championships and made five NCAA tournament appearances.
