Since 2018 KingsTalent organizes an annual showcase in December for women’s field hockey. The perfect moment to show some of the best field hockey programs from the United States what your abilities are. American coaches fly to the Netherlands specifically for our showcase and to see our athletes perform. In the 2019 showcase, we had 25 coaches present, all looking to strengthen their teams.
At the showcase, the players will be put through their paces during the practice session in the morning, led by a trainer with specific drills that allows the coaches to get a good look at your overall qualities. Technical, tactical and conditionally you will be tested. In the afternoon you will play various matches together and against our athletes. This allows you to show the coaches what you can do in your natural position. At the end, not every coach is looking for the same position.
Besides showing your qualities, our showcases are also very fun and educational events where you meet other athletes with the same dream of playing and studying in the United States. In addition to the games, there are also very interesting presentations from current student-athletes. There is also a panel discussion as well as a Q&A, which allows you to ask any question to the coaches. At the end of this intensive day, the coaches notify the athletes that they would like to meet and discuss the opportunity of joining their field hockey program.
Below is a selection of schools that have attended our showcase last year:
- University of North Carolina
- Wake Forest University
- University of Maryland
- Duke University
- Michigan State University
- Rutgers University
- University of Louisville
- And many more…
The next showcase will be in December 2021, with the exact date to be announced as soon as we can. Are you looking to play in our showcase and do you want to secure a spot? Leave your details below and we will be in touch as soon as possible.
