Unique locations and sporting facilities
With over 20 years of experience, SportWays is the oldest and most successful organiser of hockey camps in Europe. Over this period of time, we have arranged ﬁeld-hockey camps in the Netherlands, Ireland, Spain, England, France and the USA and are the ofﬁcial partner of the European Hockey Federation. Every summer over 2000 hockey players participate in our residential camps and many more in our clinics and tours. We only work with the best national and international players and coaches, the best hockey facilities and a vastly experienced team of staff & trainers. The camps are international with participants and staff from all over the world. Alongside our well-known hockey camps, SportWays also organises specialised goalie camps. The language of communication used in our camps is both Dutch and English with French also used in Antwerp.
All our sports facilities are top class. In Amsterdam we are guests at the national training centre of the Royal Dutch Hockey Association (KNHB) with 7 sand-based and 6 water-based pitches (Wagener stadium). In Barcelona we use the outstanding facilities of Atlètic Terrassa Hockey Club with a water-based pitch, 3 Astroturf pitches and extensive sports facilities. In Antwerp we will be staying at the Royal Herakles Hockey Club with a waterbased pitch and extensive sports facilities, which will guarantee a great hockey experience. In Amsterdam, Antwerp and Barcelona players sleep in professional tents. Only during the EHF Excellence Hockey Camp Barcelona players will sleep in an indoor hall. A professional catering company prepares all our meals.
Quality and Experience
A physiotherapist will be present at each residential camp and we have also made arrangements with a GP, a dentist and a hospital. We work with a staff/participant ratio of 1:4 at all residential camps.
SportWays’ emphasis is on quality. This encompasses both our hockey programme and the social events at our residential camps. Fun & Learning are the main characteristics of all SportWays camps and years of experience in both our organisation and our staff is a solid base for success. Each year the training programmes are developed by Dutch premier league coaches, players and the technical staff of various national teams to focus on the latest developments in hockey. This way the participants are guaranteed to learn the very latest techniques in the sport. We distinguish ourselves by paying maximum attention to the in-dividual player and it is our mission that a SportWays camp should be a special experience for each participant, regardless of his or her level of ability.
Social events The social staff organise evening programmes full of surprising activities from playback and theatre shows to games and parties, and all based on the social theme of that particular camp. Included in the programme: Amsterdam: 6 nights, Antwerp: 6 nights, Barcelona: 8 nights, Goalie Camps: 4 nights, full board and lodging, SportWays special design T-shirt, water bottle. SportWays cooperates with:
Top staff, players and coaches Top players and coaches exclusively appear at our camps. These professional trainers, experienced in coaching and managing young players, supervise all SportWays camps, and this year, the Dutch national coach, his assistant, as well as the goalie secialist are all involved in the creation of our 2011 technical programme. 2
SportWays general conditions are applicable. Participation of national team players is not guaranteed due to possible changes of national team programmes.
For the past ﬁve years, SportWays has supported several charities in the Developing World including ‘Stick for India’ and the ‘Sport for Hope Project’ in Zambia.

Every year, not only do we donate sports clothes and hockey sticks, but we also provide the aspiring players with a technical programme and staff members so that they can develop. In 2011, we intend to continue our support. ‘Stick for India’ is a social organisation founded in 2005 by the Spanish international hockey players and SportWays staff members Santi Freixa and Andreu Enrich. They promote the sport in the Indian rural district of Anantapur (Andhra Pradesh State), one of the poorest areas in the country. Their aim is to use the sport as a social development tool for the children. Now, after three years of continuous work in the district, more than 600 boys and girls are enjoying the sport in their lives. The ‘Sport for Hope Project’ in Zambia was initiated by Lutger Brenninkmijer and the International Olympic Committee, together with the International Hockey Federation and Dutch National Federation. The organization facilitates hockey accommodations and coaches for street children in Zambia. Last year the organisation collected sports material in Europe, which was donated to the Zambian children. Now, the construction of the ﬁrst Astro turf pitch has started.
