Meet Tori Whitcher, co-owner
Growing up Tori spent most of her summer’s in Holland where she trained and played with top coaches, including gold medal Olympians. Her collegiate career was spent playing DI hockey at University of Richmond (’11). Tori will be your main point of contact.
We are a family business and operate with the same values you hold dear.
We began in 1989 with our first hockey group to Europe. Soon, by word-of-mouth, players and teams throughout the USA joined us on our European hockey trips. Great things happened too. Our oldest daughter, Jayna, went on to play at Yale (class of ’09), while Tori showed a talent for both hockey and travel. What was once an avocation had become a vocation.
Along the way we met fantastic people and made strong friendships with those having impressive credentials and distinguished networks. We developed an exclusive arrangement with the European Hockey Federation (EHF) Camp and Clinic providers to register US players into Europe’s top talent camps. Our relationships in Field Hockey are at the highest level – at the Olympic GOLD level.
Our goal now is to introduce you to the same people and have the same experiences which we have found to be life-changing for so many teenagers that have joined us. This is easy to join. Most of our field hockey players are solo travelers and our groups come-together and bond quickly. It’s awesome to watch these young ladies grow in hockey and in life. Arrange a call with Tori, she will answer all of your questions.
