The University of St Andrews Hockey Club are bringing back the successful residential Summer Hockey Camp for 2018.
The first residential camp ran at the University in 2017 and was thoroughly enjoyed by all participants, in 2018 it was surpassed with an even better offering which saw players from across Europe come together for 2 weeks and enjoy the great Scottish summer weather.
St Andrews is unique venue for a residential camp due to the size of the town and the facilities that the University has to offer.
We will be continuing to run residential camps at the University each year with dates to be confirmed for 2019. For more information please email Jamie Carnegie or to visit the dedicated website check out the link below.

Our brand new dedicated Strength and Conditioning Suite opened in December 2016 and provides a private space for teams to train undisturbed away from our regular gym users. Featuring five lifting stations, a three-lane plyometric track and designated ‘rehab zone’, the new performance suite will also offer video analysis technology.
While we cannot confirm all coaches in advance as some of the coaches continue to play at International Level there are several coaches that have been involved in other programmes at the University.
Coaches for 2018 included Gavin Byers, current Scotland International who also played for Grove Menzieshill HC and is now playing for Uhlenhorster HC Hamburg, Cameron Golden from Grove Menzieshill HC who is also represents the GB Elite Development Programme and Amy Cairns who plays for the Scotland U21 team as their Goalkeeper. The Camp organiser is Jamie Carnegie, our Director of Hockey, will also coach at all summer camps. Jamie has previously coached Scotland U16 Boys and Girls Squads, Scottish Student Sport Representative teams, Won Scottish Hockey Coach of the Year in 2014 and was the Manager for the Men's National Team in 2015.
