Alum Talk About Their Experience
Evening College Prep Classes
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.
“What a point of Hockey energy and innovation Tori and Sport EuroTour has been. From one pandemic to another she has the vision and acts on the front foot. Our game needs this right now.”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.
