I stopped by Field Hockey Camp and met 5 young ladies and asked who would be interested in being interviewed and they all agreed to do it together.  Meet Keara, Kate, Sofia, Bella, and Eve.

Farah:  When did you start at FS? 

Field Hockey Campers:  We all started on Monday except for Bella.

Bella: I’ve been here for 3 years. It’s my first time at Field Hockey camp. I used to do Swim camp.

Eve: I started in kindergarten and then took and break and came back last year. Last year, I did field hockey, too.

Farah: How long are you here for?

Field Hockey Campers:   Some of us are here for one or two weeks of field hockey and one of us is going to Lacrosse camp next week.

Farah:   What have you been working on this week?

Field Hockey Campers:  We’ve been working on passing, hitting, drills and games. Teamwork. 

Farah:  What is your favorite part of this week?

Field Hockey Campers: Games and scrimmages. It’s fun to practice all the things you’ve been working on. Mini games!

Farah:   What are you most looking forward to this week? This summer?

Field Hockey Campers:

  • Getting better at field hockey.
  • Learning new skills and seeing the improvement.
  • I just started playing so its been really fun and helpful.
  • It’s also really good to practice before school starts.

Farah:  Do you have a favorite counselor? 

Field Hockey Campers:  We like both of them. They’re really good coaches, they teach you a lot and they challenge us, but at the same time they are very easy going. They don’t ever yell at you if you’re wrong.  They just share a  better way to do it. 

Farah:   Is there someone that you look up to or admire? 

Field Hockey Campers:  

  • A family friend, she lives in England and she got 7 field hockey scholarships to college. 
  • Probably, my mom because she played in college and she coaches now.  My mom also teaches me stuff. 
  • My sister because she’s been doing it for a couple years and the only family member that plays field hockey. 
  • I also pick my sister because she’s really good at field hockey and she’s been captain for a few years. She teaches me what to do. 

Farah:  What is the best part of being a kid?

Field Hockey Campers:  You don’t have to make life decisions yet, and you don’t have to stress out about everything. There’s also not a lot of pressure. You don’t have to worry about making money or going to a job. 

Farah:  What grade are you in?

Field Hockey Campers:   Two of us are going into 6th, two others to 7th, and one of us is going to 9th.

Farah:   What is your favorite memory from camp? 

Field Hockey Campers:

  • My favorite memory was when we first started because it was so much fun to try a new sport for the first time. 
  • Meeting everyone, scrimmaging, and lunch time because we get to talk with friends.
  • Meeting new friends and bonding with the teammates. 
  • Playing games and meeting friends.
  • Meeting the coaches because they’ll always be my favorite.
