DAVIS, Calif. - UC Davis head coach Tiffany Huisman, a former member of the U.S. Women's National Field Hockey Team who played in more than 100 international matches including the 2008 Beijing Olympics, will host three commuter field hockey camps throughout California and a residential/commuter session at UC Davis this July.
Campers will develop their field hockey skills, sport acumen and understanding of the game. Camp staff will also organize instructional sessions focused on mental preparation, nutrition, strength and conditioning to help athletes reach their potential.
Leland High School, located in San Jose, is the site of the first of three high-energy, fun-filled commuter camps organized by UC Davis Field Hockey. Scheduled for July 7-8, these two-day events are designed for players, regardless of field hockey background, ages 8-18. Instruction will take place from 9 a.m.-3 p.m.; campers can check-in both days beginning at 8:15 a.m.
Other two-day commuter camps will take place July 9-10, in San Diego, at San Pasqual High School, and in Moorpark from July 15-16. In an effort to reach players who reside in Southern California or Ventura County, Moorpark College's field hockey stadium is the site of UC Davis' final off-campus commuter event of the summer.
Goalkeeper-specific instruction will take place at all three sites; goalies are required to provide their own equipment for training sessions.
Shortly after returning from Moorpark, the field hockey staff will host a residential/computer camp for elite level players or young athletes who aspire to compete at the club, high school or collegiate level.
This four-day camp will take place at Aggie Stadium from July 23-26; on-campus accommodations are available for participants traveling to Davis for the week.
