#SpotLightSunday with Total Dutch Field Hockey Club
contributed by Total Dutch Field Hockey Club Director – Ingrid Alkhoven
At Total Dutch Field Hockey we have supported Festival since the beginning of the club, it was then, and still is regarded as the premier College recruitment event in the USA. It brings together, in rarity, the gross of the clubs and college coaches.
Festival brings an opportunity for coaches from all levels to connect and share their knowledge of field hockey. In the USA there are not many events that can attain that same chance. Over the past years there have been more meetings involved in Festival such as Coaching Courses provided by USAFH, which have provided more ground for discussion about the sport, which we hope to take America by storm over the next years. Many coaches are now trying to #GROWTHEGAME in their local communities and with the help of Harrow, are able to provide sticks and other equipment for those coaches to use in their clinics.
Our experience at Festival has always been a positive one! The location and level of competition have been good to us. We pride ourselves in sending our elite teams to compete in this event every year. As a result, many of our college commitments have flowed from the Festival tournament weekend, and it remains as the premier event for the club to have our club members exposed to College Coaches from all around the USA!
