Field Hockey Camp
Juniata's Field Hockey Camp is intentionally kept small, focusing on individual needs for improvement. This camp challenges players on every ability level. Coaches cover all phases of field hockey, emphasizing development of strong basic skills, technique and understanding of the game. The camp offers specialized training for goalkeepers, beginners, intermediate and elite field players. Players will receive constructive feedback and be pushed to play the game at the next level by an active coaching staff that often works with players within the drills.
Heading into her 18th season as head coach of the Juniata field hockey team, Caroline Gillich has hit her 200th Career win this year, with the teams double overtime Landmark Conference Championship Victory, and has guided Juniata to six NCAA Tournament berths. During her tenure, the Blue and Gold have earned multiple All-American honors, and have also captured both Commonwealth Conference and Landmark Conference Rookie and Player of the Year recognitions.
Coach Gillich is a firm believer in teaching the team game, and is always informed with the newest techniques and skills of the game. She has been a speaker at the NFHCA Convention. She has Division I coaching experience with The College of William and Mary, has assisted with the Nike Sport Leadership camps, is a coach for the USFHA Futures program and was voted Landmark Conference "Coach of the Year" in 2009 and 2010.
