2018 Camp

The University of St Andrews Hockey Club are bringing back the successful residential Summer Hockey Camp for 2018.

The first residential camp ran in 2017 and was thoroughly enjoyed by all participants, it was a great way for people to meet from across the country.

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.


Sand-dressed synthetic pitch for hockey

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.

Hands making a heart shape


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 2017 included Gavin Byers, current Scotland International who also plays for Grove Menzieshill HC and our own Director of Hockey, Jamie Carnegie, 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.

We hope to add further players with International experience to our coaching staff but this all depends on selection for International tournaments.
