The University of St Andrews Hockey Club are bringing back the successful residential Summer Hockey Camp for 2020.
The first residential camp ran at the University in 2017 and was thoroughly enjoyed by all participants, in 2018 and 2019 we continued to build on the success of each previous year and are looking to offer the best camps that we have ever done in 2020! We will be running 2 weeks of camps again in 2020.
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 the following dates for 2020:
Week 1: Sunday 26 – Friday 31 July 2020
Camp 1: Standard Hockey Camp
Camp 2: Performance Hockey Camp (District or County standard; maximum 36)
Week 2: Sunday 2 – Friday 7 August 2020
Camp 3: Standard Hockey Camp

The Camps will include the following
Standard Hockey Camps
Our standard hockey camp has been running for a number of years and offer a fun, safe and inclusive environment for 13 to 18-year olds to better their knowledge of the game
The unique camp allows players freedom to go into the town of St Andrews during the evenings and explore the unique setting while learning new technical, tactical and social skills through our standout programme content.
During Week 1 of our programme this year, players who want to train to a high level (Performance Camp) can now attend a camp with their friends who may not take hockey as seriously (Standard Camp). The two camps will run in tandem, but some training elements as well as our exceptional social programme will be combined.
Aimed at District or County standard players, our Performance Camp will allow more serious players to improve their game through a mix of tactical focussed training, technical coaching and 11 v 11 matches.
Along side hockey training the participants will experience sessions from specialist staff in nutrition, performance analysis, fitness testing and strength and conditioning.

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 2019 included Cameron Golden from Grove Menzieshill HC (now Klein Zwitserland) who also represents the GB Elite Development Programme; Jamie Cachia, currently coaching with University of Durham and ex - Scotland International GK; Ben Stevenson, University of Nottingham and ex - England U21 International.
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. There will be a number of other coaches working at the camps this summer who will be confirmed via social in the upcoming months.
