Join Wait List Here
We are limited to registering just 24 U.S athletes into this camp. Qualified players are accepted on a first to sign-up, space available basis. This camp sells-out early.
Of note, Most top, young, American hockey athletes are used to playing-up with older kids here at home. Not so in Holland. The hockey experience will be extremely challenging for your age, and for all USA players, they should even consider playing-down. Because at this camp, you will be playing-up
The Best-of-the-Best! In this camp you will be "immersed" into the top rated, co-ed Dutch field hockey camp. The Elite Camp requires the right qualifications to join. This program is best suited for the more adventurous and recommended for serious athletes with the right attitude. For athletes looking for a highly intensive and competitive training camp with other top athletes from around the world who can get excited about playing hockey non-stop for 6 full days at the Amsterdam Hockey Club.
If a European camp immersion is too overwhelming for you, our College Ride Tour will be your better choice as it is more of a traditional travel experience. Because of the level of play and immersive nature of this camp, it is not for the faint of heart. If you don't have qualifications that meet this Elite Camp, but want the immersive experience, look at...
- the European Hockey Federation "Camp of Excellence"
- and for younger players, check out the All-Star Camp.

We have a program for every style, level and ability. Please feel free to contact us and ask any questions. We can make sure you are best suited to the program you join.

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 epic adventure. Onward now, as you board a scheduled airline for this overnight flight. EuroTour takes care of everything and all details are provided to you well in advance. We do all the heavy lifting. Have confidence, we’ve been doing this successfully since 1989.
DAY 2 :: Holland Sightseeing
First thing when we get off the plane, is meet our Dutch liaison who leads you to our private chartered bus that will take us to our accommodations. This is the same hotel where the national teams stay 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 you’ll visit windmills, see wooden shoes being handmade and try Dutch pancakes. Today & tomorrow you acclimate to your new surroundings, bond with your teammates, get over jet lag and see the amazing sights of Holland.
DAY 3 :: Amsterdam Sightseeing
There’s still much to see and do before the start of camp. 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 – see Amsterdam lit at night as a local would!
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 Elite Dutch Camp adventure. We guarantee there has been nothing like this in your hockey career.
Holland, Germany, Belgium, England, Ireland are just a few of the countries represented at this world class camp.
The hockey starts as soon as you enter, friendships too.
DAY 5 :: Fantastic Staff
Many camp staff participated in these camps as teenagers and now return to give back and continue the hockey and fun.
Yes, fun. The Dutch believe that sport should be fun, because the more you love something, the better you will do.
Hockey, Love & Fun!
DAY 6 :: Immersion
You join a top European camp and participate just as the Europeans do. Living, training and playing with, and against, international hockey players for 6 glorious days of hockey and fun..
Expect the best week of your life. Create lasting friendships with hockey players from around the globe and transform your game within a safe and fun environment.
Extraordinary hockey & friends.
DAY 7 :: Tournaments
The action is strong and fast.
You’ll join in daily tournaments, playing with, and against, over 100 other European athletes who hail from all over Europe. You’ll learn as much from them as you will from the top 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 before the age of six.
DAY 8 :: Training
The European talent you train with is just amazing. No program in the USA can deliver this level of action, ability and achievement.
When combined with top demonstrations by Olympic players along with one-on-one training by the best coaches in Europe, you not only experience phenomenal hockey, but find yourself in a life-changing environment.
DAY 9 :: Fun & Friendships
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 10 :: 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 and new friends.
Now it’s time to show your friends, competitors and prospective college coaches all you have learned.

WHAT DO COLLEGE COACHES THINK?
“I believe there is a critical need for young American field hockey players to travel abroad – to be exposed to the various cultures and the international game of hockey. Global hockey is just so athletic, passionate and community oriented. Unfortunately most high school players are limited by their narrow experience. Only when exposed to the game at its most developed levels – can players realize their full potential. I encourage all US hockey players to take the next step in their hockey careers – an international hockey experience.”Missy Meharg, Head Field Hockey Coach, University of MarylandSeven NCAA titles, 23 conference titles and 17 Final Fours. Named NFHCA National Coach of the Year an unprecedented nine times.
