Jul 23, 2024 - Jul 26, 2024 | Junior USMNT | Chula Vista, CA, USA

    USA Field Hockey is pleased to announce that registration is now open for the 2024-25 Junior U.S. Men’s National Team Talent Identification and Training Camp to be held at the Chula Vista Elite Athlete Training Center in Chula Vista, Calif. from July 23 to 26. This camp will be held in conjunction with a Junior USMNT training weekend.

    “We look forward to welcoming new and old faces to a selection camp that becomes more competitive each year,” commented Pat Harris, U-21 USMNT Head Coach. “The camp is a great platform to expose players to the world of high performance, and our aim as coaches is to provide them with the tools necessary to navigate the totality of becoming a well-rounded elite athlete.”

    The primary goal of the Talent ID and Training Camp is to discover athletes who, at an early age, show promise for future success at the top-tier of the sport. The Talent ID Camp is the first step for any young male field hockey player (age 12-20) hoping to enter the U.S. Men’s National Team Olympic Development Pathway and reach the highest levels of competition.

    The Junior USMNT Talent ID and Training Camp is instructional with a focus on providing insight into what is required of elite athletes and the tools to achieve success at the international level. The camp also assists in selecting athletes for the U.S. U-16, U-18 and U-21 Men’s National Teams. The schedule consists of training/evaluation sessions over the course of three days. Highlights include instruction from some of Team USA’s finest coaches, assistant coaches Harris, Pat Cota and Jun Kentwell.
