WILKES-BARRE -- The King's College Field Hockey Camp will be held this summer at the college's Robert L. Betzler Fields athletic complex in Wilkes-Barre Township.

The camp, which will be directed by King's head field hockey coach Cheryl Ish, will be conducted July 14-18 2008.

The camp, which is open to players eight years old and up until a current high school senior (Class of 2008), will be held from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon each day. Cost of the camp is $90 for the week and includes a tee shirt and team photo.

Campers will be instructed in ball handling, attack moves and dodges, one-on-one defense, team defense and circle play. Goalie instruction will also take place and all goalies are asked to bring their own equipment.

Passing, positioning, and support play will also be taught while game-like drills and scrimmages will take place daily.   Campers will be evaluated and grouped according to skill level and age. Players can expect a small player-to-coach ratio.

Coach Ish has been the head coach at King's for the past 14 seasons and has coached a number of MAC Freedom Conference all-stars and Regional all-American players. She is a two-time MAC Freedom Conference "Coach of the Year". Most recently, she led King's to the 2006 and 2007 Freedom Conference championships, as well as runner-up conference finishes in both 2003 and 2005.  Her 2005 team finished the season ranked 20th nationally and her 2006 and 2007 squads qualified for the NCAA Division III National Tournament.

As a player, she was a three-time NCAA Division III all-American at perennial national power Salisbury University. She will be joined on the camp staff by local coaches as well as a number of current and former college players.  A certified athletic trainer will also be on hand each day.
