When it comes to sports, there is no shortage of summer camp opportunities. This means some research is involved when selecting the best fit for your child. In this post, we’ll discuss some of the things to consider before choosing a summer camp for your athlete.
In order to get the most out of the camp experience you should look at a camp that has a mixture of practices and games. Camps that offer practices will allow your child to learn the correct execution of skills and tactics, which will benefit them during the games. Without practice children, who have never played before or aren’t as advanced yet, often don’t get the ball a lot during games.
You should also consider the coaching staff at summer camps. Are they field hockey specific coaches? How much experience do they have?
As with most summer camps, you need to consider sleepaway versus day options. Depending on how old and independent your child is you need to decide whether they are ready for a sleepover camp.
