Residential hockey camps

Our annual residential hockey camps programme takes place each summer at the University’s sports facilities and welcomes players aged 13 to 17 years old from all over the world.

Our weeklong camps are tailored for different levels of playing experience and ability, but throughout the programme players are able to better their knowledge of the game in a safe and inclusive environment.

With recent investment in the sports facilities, combined with the variety of residential facilities available on site, the University is now positioned as one of the best venues for residential sports training camps in Scotland.

Summer camps 2021

For Summer 2021 we are expanding our programme to offer three weeklong camps back-to-back from 18 July – 6 August.

For the first time we will be introducing a Performance Camp targeting players who have represented their District or County and an Invitational Camp for those playing at the top end of their District, County or Junior International level.

Accommodation for the 2021 residential camp programme will be provided in Whitehorn Hall on the western side of town situated adjacent to the sports facilities at University Park.
