Kangaroo Clinic - Field Hockey Skills Camp
Operating since 2002, Kangaroo Clinics is a unique concept where highly skilled and experienced coaches provide a tailored program to meet the needs of teams, both high school and college, as well as individual players. This is done after consultation with team coaches regarding the special needs of the teams involved. Additionally the camp is held in the team’s home region, significantly reducing costs and travel time for players involved. There will be individual skills sessions as well as group skills, set play development and strategy sessions to involve as many skills as possible each day. Team coaches will also be able to consult with Kangaroo Clinic staff and access a wide range of field hockey resources. Goalkeepers will also receive specialized one-on-one instruction on skills and techniques necessary to play this vital position, as well as involvement in small games situations to develop these skills.
