Accepting only 20 GK’s from the USA.
10 in each program
You must qualify. Please contact us if you are not sure if you qualify, or which program is right for you. You have 5-days to rescind your application without penalty. Once you sign-up, we will want to speak with you to make sure this is a good fit for you. This is not for everyone. Character, attitude and motivation is needed.
Both dates are virtually the same training regimen. You will train with top GK coaches from all over the world – trained in the Drijver system. In both programs you will play with, and against, top-talent from all over the world, although the “Elite” camp will have a stronger level of field players on the attack in game play. The action is fast and strong, coming right at you in the cage. Powerful hockey.

“One of the most amazing feelings I have ever experienced came throughout the whole camp. I already miss it so so much. “Kendyl Underwood - 2018 (said it was the "best experience of my life")
“Incredibly intense and fun!”Marissa Florio - 2018 (2nd year attending)
“Definitely the best camp I’ve ever been too, My game has improved so much simply from playing against players at the international level.”Skye Joegriner - 2018 (said it was the "best experience of my life")
“I learned more than I thought was even possible”Izzy Anton - 2018 (said her skill level increased by 10X)
“You’ll train at your own level, but together in small training groups, with other motivated goalies from around the world – under the watchful eye of myself and my top staff of goalie trainers.
“From your posture and balance, to your dive or how to best hold your stick, to footwork and kicking – not a single thing is forgotten. During the Drijver Goalie Camps all that matters is improving your goalie skills! We make this happen!”Martijn Drijver - GK GuruRenowned in Europe as the lead goalkeeping coach, Martijn Drijver is called the "Coaching Guru" and has been active in three Olympic Games, five European Championships, three World Championships and ten Champions Trophies. His legacy is extensive - in 2008 Spain won the silver medal, thanks to the eminent goalkeeper Quico Cortez, trained by Martijn. In 2012 he accompanied the keepers of the Dutch team, which also won Olympic silver. And at the club level Martijn has contributed to many successes: As goalkeeping coach, he was involved in fourteen league titles and seven European club titles. Several national teams have Martijn as goalkeeping coach on their staff in recent years, including the Netherlands, Spain, Malaysia, Ireland and South Africa.
At the Drijver Goalie Academy, you will participate just as the Europeans do; living, training and playing with, and against, international hockey players. This is an “immersive” European coed camp experience. This program is best suited for the more adventurous and recommended for serious athletes with the right attitude. Each is designed to get the most out of your potential. Contact us if you are still unsure which is right for you.

DAY 1 :: USA Departure
Your tour begins by meeting your fellow travel companions at the airport for a late afternoon airline check–in. We typically use either JFK or Newark airports. Here too you will meet your chaperones, our EuroTour staff, who will be with you 24/7 on your adventure. Afterwards you board a scheduled airline for this overnight flight. EuroTour takes care of everything and all details are provided to you well in advance of take-off. We do all the heavy lifting. We’ve been doing this a long time – since 1989.
DAY 2 :: Holland Sightseeing
First thing when we get off the plane, is meet your Dutch liaison who takes you to your accommodations on our private chartered bus. This is the same hotel the national teams stay in when they play against the Dutch. Soon you’re off on a drive through the countryside in our motor coach to an open air, “living” museum. Here, visit windmills, see wooden shoes being made and try Dutch pancakes. Today & tomorrow you acclimate to your new surroundings, get over jet lag and see the amazing sights of Holland.
DAY 3 :: Amsterdam Sightseeing
There’s still much more to see and do. This morning you’re off to Amsterdam where you visit the Anne Frank Museum and have time for a little shopping at the biggest and best hockey store in Amsterdam. Tonight you’ll be escorted on a classic boat cruise along the narrow canals where you glide through the waterways in our private custom launch – seeing Amsterdam lit at night!
Now you are ready… it’s time to prepare for tomorrow.
DAY 4 :: Meet Your Fellow Campers
What you’ve been waiting for… Today you start your GK adventure. We guarantee there has been nothing like this in your goalie career.
Holland, Germany, Belgium, England, Ireland are just a few of the countries represented at this Elite academy.

DAY 7 :: Tournaments
The action is strong and fast. Coming right at you in the circle.
You’ll join in tournaments, playing with, and against, over 100 other European players who hail from all over Europe. You’ll learn as much from them as you will from your coaches.
Imagine what it will be like to play with, and against, your European peers. Co-ed games with players who have held a stick since the age of six.
DAY 8 :: Fun & Freindships
Today is your last full-day of top training with your Dutch coaches, tonight your last international game. It’s the most amazing hockey you have experienced and now you are seeing your game in a new light. There’s more; tonight you say good-bye to your Dutch friends at your farewell dinner.
A perfect ending to a great trip!
DAY 9 :: Farewells
This morning you bid farewell to Europe when you depart Holland for home. It’s been a phenomenal week of training, competitive games, exceptional sightseeing.
Now it’s time to show your friends, competitors and prospective college coaches all you have learned.
