I just wanted to drop you a note to tell you what a first class event you just ran. I have always been impressed with this tournament but you really really went out of your way to make our lil U14 7 v 7 TNT experience the best it could have been under the circumstances ha ha! I sincerely understand how BUSY you had to be by just seeing the tremendous results of your efforts to make this a top class event for SO MANY. I cannot express enough how much I appreciate all of your help in securing players for my team --we were taken care of all weekend with three subs because of it. I cannot believe you took the time that close to tournament to worry about and help me out --and so,so efficiently too! You amaze me with your ability to coordinate and organize!!!

Club Coach

I didn’t have a chance to catch you at the end of the first UA Select Game, but I wanted to thank you for an awesome weekend! Everything from the facilities to the amenities for the players to the coaching staff was really great! It is by far the best showcase/camp I’ve been to and I am walking away even more excited for the next level of collegiate play.I hope you have a great rest of your summer and I look forward to participating in College Connection events in the future.

You do cut a very high standard with your tournaments - again our families, players and coaches had an amazing time. The vendor village was super, lots of our players bought new sticks. The volume of choices this year was amazing. Refs were great, so many colleges attending - great competition on the field! Everybody returned home happy from their experience! Anyway, once again thank you for building such an overall great experience for everybody, it makes the club's life so easy when we have such well run destination events to attend.

Club Coach

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 can’t tell how excited Maggie was to have College Connection to look forward to. You said thank you to all the parents today at our meeting but I believe you deserve the biggest thank you of all! For making this happen for all these athletes with all that is going on. It was not easy and you did it!! So, thank you! A perfect weekend for these girls to get out there and play a sport they love! The best!!

Congratulations again on running such an outstanding event this weekend at Austin Prep. We were so happy to be there, and Maddie had an amazing time. As for my feedback, it is genuine...I have been to a LOT of showcases and tournaments throughout my coaching (and parenting😉) career, and this was top-notch.

Parent

Just wanted to send a quick note to say thank you for a great tournament. My girls had a blast and it was such a great experience especially for my younger ones who are not used to playing in big tournaments. We really appreciate all the effort you put into running it, I know it takes a lot!

I just wanted to thank you one more time for being so patient with Rani and I with the club. I wish everyone was as awesome as you! It was great to finally put a face with the name. You are very much appreciated so one last time….Thank you,

Club Coach Staff

I hope you are well after such a busy weekend. I just wanted to thank you again for such an amazing weekend. Playing with girls at such a high level was surreal and I have been dreaming about it for months now. I am also thankful for the Under Armour game being so fun, competitive, and friendly. I also loved the uniforms! The tournament was so well organized and easy to navigate. Thanks!

My girls and our parents loved WES20, they said it was really well organized and run and the amount of coaches there was amazing. I'm glad to see that our second year in a row at WES has again gotten great reviews from players and parents. Congratulations on another successful event!

Club Coach

Hope you've been able to get some rest after College Connection and the UA Select Game, what a great event and showcase!! This is definitely the best showcase that my daughter has attended, and she really had a great time!! And it was so exciting that she was selected for the UA Select Game--we loved it and were just amazed at the talent on the field! You did an amazing job and I can only imagine all the time and effort that goes into planning and running such a successful event as CC--thank you!

My name is Jenna Halpin. I was so fortunate to be able to attend College Connection last weekend in Massachusetts. I know I spoke to you so briefly after the Under Armor Select Game but I wanted to reach back out to express my gratitude for everything you did for us. I wanted to personally say thank you for putting together an amazing 3 days full of field hockey for us. I understand that it must’ve been very challenging with everything going on right now but I had an amazing time, met some amazing new people, and most importantly got to play the sport I love. I signed up for College Connection for the sole purpose of playing field hockey and I am so glad I did so. I could tell how badly you wanted to see us play and how you would stop at nothing to ensure that we had any opportunity to play. The field hockey community could use many more people like you! Your personality, energy, and love for the game was infectious and I was so glad to be able to meet someone as passionate about field hockey as you are. Thank you so much for everything!

Wanted to thank you for putting on this weekends tournament / it meant a lot to girls and thank you for not giving up and continuing to battle through this difficult time - you don’t realize how much that impacts people until it’s not their anymore

Club Coach

Thank you so much for the great hospitality this past weekend, I had a blast being there and having so many nice and friendly faces taking care of everyone, I hope to be back soon at the next tournament! I hope you have a great Fall season and hope to see you again soon!

College Coach

As always, your events are flawless and have the best vibe around. Thanks for what you do.

Club Coach

We truly appreciated the food and hydration!! The socks were fun too!! Gatorade idea was awesome!!! probably more so we'll just keep replying!!!

Club Coach

Everyone associated with 3 Step Sports was extremely kind and considerate to my team and I and we couldn't have asked for a better group to serve.

Vendor

We love your events- more then any other events. We can tell you care about each coach, team, player, umpire–etc….

Club Coach

My daughter participated in the Shooting Stars Thanksgiving Tournament with her team, I just wanted to thank you for a fantastic tournament. It was well organized, competitive, and most of all fun for all involved.

Parent

Congratulations on attracting some of the top club teams to this event. If college and the national teams play on turf, I contend we must play and compete significantly more on turf. Looking forward to the day when we have some or all games on state-of-the-art turf.

Club Coach

It’s a well-run tournament that values each participant and coach. Players are able to showcase their skills at a great facility. The thought, care and attention given to college and club coaches allow each party to concentrate on the tournament and focus on the athletes.

Club Coach

Coaches hospitality tent was awesome, and so fun for me to reconnect with so many coaches etc. Looks like I got us a gk and good leads on several field players, so definitely well worth the trip!

College Coach

Always great to see you. Just wanted to say great event over the weekend. You guys run the best events. My daughter said she loves your goalie wars. She said the way they run them are better than anyone else!

Parent

I just wanted to thank you again for a great tournament! It was such a pleasure to umpire for you – as an umpire, I don’t think I’ve ever been treated so well! Every detail from communication to accommodations was super! You should do training sessions on how to run a tournament! I shall be very happy to work at your tournaments in the future!

Umpire

Thanks for an awesome weekend. It was a great tournament, and super smooth/organized as usual.

Club Coach

Organization top leaders/owners are readily accessible to us whether via email, phone or even in person at the tournament. In-person interaction, even for that minute or so is highly appreciated here. Thanks for all the goodies for ALL the college and club coaches. Thank you for winning the hearts of top clubs to this event especially this year. Top College Coaches including UNC and others were in the house.

Club Coach

I wanted to take this time to let you know how great of a tournament you all put on. The facility was a huge plus! The parents and team liked how there were multiple restrooms and concession stands available throughout all 12 fields. The parking was very convenient and in great walking distance. Plenty of college coaches in attendance which made our players very excited to work hard and show case their skills. Every staff member who I came in contact with was friendly, helpful and excited for us to be there. Great organization from a great ORGANIZATION! Congrats on a putting on a great show with lots of good hockey and competition. We love your tournaments and we look forward to next year!!

Club Coach

I just wanted to send a quick note to thank you again for putting together a hockey weekend that was nothing short of fantastic. You thought of every detail and had it covered – the venue, format, support staff and food – Incredible. There are many of us who have been looking for the opportunity to continue playing a sport we love at a level that is both competitive and social all at the same time, and yourself, along with the other committee members should be congratulated.

Athlete

Thanks for going out on a limb and making our idea for a competitive masters tournament a reality. I hope the momentum continues and we grow this into an annual event for both men and women!

Athlete

Thank you for such a FANTASTIC weekend. I had a blast playing in the tournament! You did such a great job keeping everything running despite some weather. Adored being at Harvard. The social was scrumptious and loads of fun!

My daughter’s attendance at the College Connection Showcase turned out to be one of the best decisions made in the recruiting process. College Connection is highly respected and attended by many D1, D2 and D3 schools. CC opened several doors for my daughter, and can take credit for my daughter committing to her #1 college choice. I want to thank you and CC for organizing such professionally run events which allow relationships between coaches and players to get started. Our family thanks you and fully endorses College Connection as a fundamental necessity for student-athletes to gain exposure, open doors, and play at the next level.

Parent

We were excited to tell you that our daughter received and accepted an offer from her top school! There is no doubt that her experience and exposure at College Connection and your feedback on her play helped her get to this point, so many thanks!!

Parent

I had the BEST time at College Connection! The girls were all great and the coaches were super helpful. I really enjoyed the nutrition seminar, and the time we spent learning to be better athletes off and on the field.

Athlete

I loved the experience they had and how welcoming all staff were. I am already looking forward to next year. And my goal is grow the number of girls that my club sends every year.

Club coach

I just have to say… what an amazing weekend! Everything about it was awesome! From the scheduling, the seminars, the transportation, the meals and the coaching. Everything was spot on… What an amazing organization College Connection is. Thank you so much for creating this opportunity for field hockey players that want to continue playing in college.

Athlete

I am writing because I cannot possibly thank you enough on several fronts. The Under Armour game was an awesome event and a total thrill as a parent…. The truest and best compliment I can five you is that CC does things the right way. There are some people in the recruiting world who are looking to grab your money, and nothing could be further from reality with your organization. Please continue to keep up the good work because it is so necessary for all the parents out there.

Parent

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.

Athlete

I wanted to write and THANK YOU for the most amazing experience EVER! The Under Armor uniforms were awesome and walking onto the field and lining up to be introduced by name and hometown was as if I was getting ready to play in the Olympics – A dream come true! Thank you again for this amazing, awesome, life experience opportunity. I just finished preseason, and am looking forward to an exciting season!

Thank you So much for a great week of field hockey! My daughter had an absolute blast and learned a ton! I appreciate all the hard work of you and your staff. She enjoyed every moment of the camp, and this for us pumped up for the season to start! Thanks so much again!

Parent

I just wanted to say thank you to you and your staff for running such a great camp for our high school players, and for the coaches clinics. I learned a lot! If our players retain even a fraction of what their coaches presented, they will be better players.
