Mission

To provide quality field hockey programming for athletes who have a desire to learn, enjoy and excel in their sport! Whether participants are beginners, elite, recreational or college bound prospects; we have a program to help you take your game to the next level.

History

College Connection, previously White Mountain Sports, was one of the first major field hockey camps in the country. Over 38 years ago, the first White Mountain Sports camp was held at Plymouth State College in Plymouth, NH. The immediate success of that very first year propelled White Mountain Sports into one of the sports’ leaders for growing and promoting field hockey.

With the evolution of junior high, high school and club field hockey, College Connection has had the vision and primary focus to stay ahead of the trends and meet the changing needs of the sport. Today, College Connection continues to offer great programs for teams and individual players, but has gone a step further to provide specialty programs for field players, goalkeepers and college bound prospects and a variety of tournament opportunities to increase their exposure.

College Connection was the first to make Virtual Video Recruiting a reality for athletes and collegiate coaches. Today, our virtual recruiting technology allows athletes to use our event video, affordably and effectively to be seen and evaluated by every college coach. Providing more opportunity and visibility for many more athletes: we connect athletes to coaches.

Since our inception, College Connection has a history of success and excellence. Not only has College Connection programs helped many teams and individuals to become better players, but has provided a platform for all levels of athletes to learn, compete and have fun. The combination of superior coaching, comprehensive curriculums and excellent facilities, continues to keep all of the College Connection programs at the top of the list for athletes, parents, high school coaches, club coaches and the college coaching community.

Shooting Star Tournaments were founded in 2016, when there was a desire in the field hockey community for showcase tournaments on synthetic turf fields. Starting with Thanksgiving in 2016, Shooting Star now hosts 10 tournaments nation-wide, servicing athletes ranging from U10 to Masters (35+).

While expanding, Shooting Star has stayed true to their fundamental values, catering to every athlete, club coach, college coach, umpire, parent and fan – striving to provide a professional, inspiriting and authentic experience. The testimonials throughout the years speak to just that – check out what people have to say about Shooting Star events here.

Shooting Star is committed to providing an elite and competitive atmosphere for all levels. Shooting Star tournaments are hosted annually throughout the United States.

Elite Field Hockey Camp is a New England hockey tradition that has provided generations of players in the region with memorable moments. The team based curriculum facilitates development, learning, and team culture throughout the camp. An elite staff of coaches promotes this individual and team growth from start to finish!

I attended your information session at Winter Escape. Your presentation was/is the most helpful piece of material I have found. I truly appreciate the concise slides that I can share with my daughter (a sophomore field hockey goalie) and my husband. I look forward to passing it on to other families working through this process as well. Know that your time and expertise are of great value. Thank you so much for presenting.

I was especially grateful for the advice you gave me after about one on one with the goalies. College Connection has been a great experience for me. It was my first window into the world of college recruiting, allowing me to see how the process works and to actually build relationships with college coaches. I am excited to participate in future College Connection Camps and hopefully may see you at other field hockey events.
