The Quinnipiac University Bobcat Elite Clinic I is designed to develop elite field hockey athletes. This clinic will help players develop a base level of field hockey knowledge and skill and is designed for top-level hockey players of all ages. Each clinic is different and is mirrored after a real Bobcat Division I practice plan. The clinics are coached by Quinnipiac Head Coach Becca Main, her staff and their Division I athletes, with personal attention being given to each athlete.

  • Strong Receptions – stationary and on the move.

  • Elimination skills including deception, body control and movement. 
  • Team marking and zonal defense.

  • Free hit options and ball pattern.
  • Intellectual energy to work as a unit to attack and defend during transition. 
  • Athletes are initially organized in groups by sport level and age and will be encouraged by an environment focused on enhancing their total field hockey game. 

All our clinics include a goalkeeping-specific curriculum devised for keepers of all levels. Goalkeepers with receive one-on-one attention from Bobcat Associate Head Coach and goalkeeping specialist, Nina Klein. During this portion, goalkeepers will learn fundamental game-play skills as well as specialty skills including logging, worming, split-saves, half-high saves, and aerial saves. The clinics are fun, exciting and create player synergy, while also emphasizing top-level field hockey.


Our Clinics and Camps are open to any and all entrants, limited only by specific number, age grade or level.


The clinic will take place outdoors in our new state-of-the-art Quinnipiac University Field Hockey Stadium and water-based Turf Field.
