TOP INTERNATIONAL TRAINING
with World Cup Matches
The biggest prize and the most cherished victory in hockey alongside the Olympics. Every four years, at the Hockey World Cup the world’s greatest teams play some of the toughest, most skilful and entertaining international hockey imaginable. This is where legends are made – with the world’s finest players battling it out to become the very best. Since 1974, only four teams have won the event. Netherlands is by far the most successful team, having won the title eight times. Train with the coaches who train the best!
“Prepare to be tested.
Training is led by the same staff who coach the Elite Dutch Hockey Camp. We have a special guest scheduled to join us, KNHB/FIH coach, Thomas Tichelman (best-of-the-best).
You’ll stay at a 4-star hotel in walking distance to our training facility and club. Serious luxury, while delivering serious hockey.
Watch hockey at the highest level and all the women’s best teams compete at Wagener Stadium at the Amsterdam Hockey Club for a really special hockey experience. The music, cheering and fun international club scene is something you will never forget!
And now, your whole family is invited!
It’s your turn. If not now, when?”Tori Whitcher, Owner, Sport EuroTour

Whether you are already traveling in Europe or just arriving from the USA, we’ll be waiting for you at our hotel, the Dutch Design Hotel Artemis. Tonight the action starts when we go to the World Cup play-off match. The top 16 teams in the world. If we’re lucky Team USA will be there too! But before we leave we’ll have a meet and greet where we’ll enjoy appetizers for all and beer and wine for the family, friends and adults fans. A big first day.
JULY 8 :: Full-day Dutch Training
What you’ve been waiting for… Today athletes start their Dutch Training with Thomas Tichleman’s Dutch coaching staff. Absolutely the ultimate hockey experience for every hockey-head. Adult fans can watch training or take an independent excursion into Amsterdam – or do both. After training it’s back to the hotel where you can relax and enjoy a Dutch dinner with your new friends and teammates.
JULY 9 :: Full-day Dutch Training
Today you attend your second full-day of Dutch Training. The coaching is beyond exceptional. Adult fans have their choice of how they want to spend their day – watch hockey or maybe visit a small Duthc village like Delft. After a full-day of hockey we have another special Dutch dinner lined-up for you.
JULY 10 :: Excursions & World Cup
A big day of sightseeing is planned when we’ll take you into Amsterdam by our private motor coach for a deep dive of this historic city. Then we’ll head back to Wagener Stadium for another top match with the world’s best teams. After the game we’ll stay in the “Olympic” village allowing you time to visit the money shops and regional food vendors, plus beer gardens and wine bars for the adults before heading back to the hotel.
JULY 11 :: Full-day Dutch Training
Back at it when you attend your third full-day of Dutch Training at our nearby club SBHC Xenios. Again, adults are free to make their own plans for the day. Our local staff will help give you the insiders directions to make you feel like Holland is home. Tonight we give you the freedom to eat and relax at the hotel or choose to visit a local restaurant in the neighborhood or the city with your family.
JULY 12 :: Dutch Training & World Cup
Fun and the World Cup are on the agenda today. We start out by seeing more of Holland before heading to our 3rd World Cup match and action. Here, in the USA, we cannot experience the ability, speed and action of the World’s top teams. You will learn as much from watching these top competitors as you can from your Dutch coaches. Tonight we end with an evening cruise through the beautifully lighted canals of Amsterdam.
JULY 13 :: Depart for Home
This morning you bid farewell to Europe when you depart Holland for home. Now it’s time to show your friends, competitors and prospective college coaches all you have learned.

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.
