Matching student athletes to America's top academic institutions

Aspiring to play field hockey at an upper echelon college or university is both exciting and challenging.  We have designed this event to benefit the student athletes who desire to pursue this goal. Top of the Class is our answer to the numerous requests from college coaches, student athletes and their parents to offer an opportunity where we can expose current players to a variety of coaching styles, play among the competition, show off individual strengths and become an overall better player.

We’ve assembled a number of the top coaches and instructors from prominent colleges within our national field hockey network in order to mentor players in the process of recruiting, academic admissions criteria and what it takes to play field hockey at the collegiate level.

The Top of The Class Camp is open to players graduating high school in 2021, 2022, 2023, & 2024. Enrollment will be limited in order to ensure each participant receives maximum exposure to our coaches. This is a great chance to be seen by coaches and potentially open doors to college contacts and the world of field hockey beyond the high school level.

Field Hockey Camps - Field Hockey Review Coach B

TOC was a fun environment. Fueled by a focused and motivated group of athletes and a positive and enthusiastic coaching staff. I truly enjoyed be able to observe my peers in action and the players work so hard and improve over such a short period. It was great to work with these athletes so they can get a sense of your coaching style and the better know if that coach player relationship is the one to carry them towards their academic and athletic aspirations.

Field Hockey Camps - Field Hockey Review Jessica P- Player

I have been to numerous college camps throughout my recruiting process; not one camp has allowed me to get as much one on one time with the coaches as Top of the Class has. Thank you.

I'm so glad my daughter was able to play in front of the some of the programs she is interested in. With everything going on the past few months, this was a much needed experience for her as she prepares to play at the next level! We are already looking forward to the next Showcase! Thank you so much for this opportunity.
