Ginger Kincaid - Head Coach, Glenelg High School, Glenelg, MD
"After two summers of attending the Academy International Camp in our own back yard I have seen a tremendous difference in the skill level of our players coming into the season. The instruction was exceptional and the players loved the international connection. Instead of experiencing a downward slide in our program we have enjoyed back to back Championship seasons."
Kim Desto - Head Coach, Weston High School, MA
My team talked about this camp throughout the season and referenced things the coaches taught them which was very nice to see and hear. They also asked the minute the camp ended if we could have them come back next year!
Michele Bedesem Linder, Head Varsity Field Hockey Coach, Westtown School, West Chester PA
“The Academy International Coaches were very knowledgeable about the game, adapted skills and strategy sessions to account for the diversity of experience in my players, and created a fun learning environment for our team. The Westtown School Field Hockey Team is off to the best start we have had in years and we have Academy International to thank for putting us on the road to success.”
Arundel Field Hockey Coaching Staff, Arundel High School, Gambrills, MD
“Our coaching staff was thoroughly impressed with the Academy International Training Camp. We had great AI Coaches that helped our players prepare for the season with tactical and skill training. The feedback from all the players and parents has been very positive. We look forward to reaping the benefits of an Academy International Camp again this summer.”
Susan Steinhardt, Mount Olive High School Coach, Mt. Olive, NJ
“In July 2014, Mt. Olive high school worked with three amazing coaches from the Academy International program. Sam, Kevin and Adam made the week worthwhile and fun for every girl involved. As their host family, I had first-hand knowledge of the planning and prep work they put in to each practice session. Every skill was geared toward my team's needs and individualized for each player. The coaches were professional and energetic. My players were excited to show up every morning and looked forward to what the guys had to teach them. The personal evaluations were also a useful tool for me to share with my girls so we could continue to benefit from the expertise provided to us through our Academy International experience.
We have already reserved our week with AI for next summer.”
Cindy Hook, Varsity Head Field Hockey Coach, Annandale High School, Annandale VA
“Thanks for yet another great Academy International Camp. The skills and tactics that our players learn from your camp has tremendously impacted our entire program. This was our 4th year of hosting and once again you sent us exceptional coaches who brought a wealth of knowledge, playing and coaching experience, and infectious enthusiasm to share their true love of the game.”
Gaby Somma, Varsity Head Field Hockey Coach, Suffern High School, Suffern NY
“ To this day our players that attended the Academy International Field Hockey Camp are still talking about Fran and Poppy, their coaches from England. Fran and Poppy taught our girls new drills that we still utilize at practice and they even taught us new corners that give us an advantage in our games. The Suffern Mounties will never forget the fun and learning they received at the Academy International Field Hockey Training Camp!”
