For the past 15 years, I have worked with high school, club and college coaches around the country, co-creating and organizing some of the best and most well-known large scale field hockey development camps. I've also coached at all three NCAA divisions and was a full scholarship athlete at a division 1 program.
Over this time, I have become quite familiar with the frustrations of players and parents about field hockey development and the NCAA field hockey recruiting process in general. For players, many events (tournaments, showcases, etc.) feel disorganized, full of fluff and a lot of standing around or playing without instruction/feedback. While recruiting events feel like playing lottery, always wondering whether you've been seen, by whom, did they like you, what's next? For parents, its wondering whether hard earned money and hard to come by time is being well spent to provide their daughter with the best opportunities to improve her game and advance her collegiate field hockey future.
And Coaches have frustrations as well. Always debating which event to attend, maneuvering red tape to finance attendance, while worrying whether the events they do attend will actually provide them with any real, meaningful evaluation opportunities to bring back with them.
We created SweetStx to alleviate these frustrations and provide players, parents and coaches with the highest quality and most reliable development/recruiting product on the market.
