HISTORY

After coaching through the Olympics and two World Cup Teams, Pam Hixon stepped back from active coaching to see what the future of the sport of field hockey held. She was approached by many college coaches expressing the need for an independent entity to host invitational showcases for athletes to enable college coaches greater visibility to a wider pool of athletes. Their suggestion was to invite a top level group of college bound athletes to a single venue to show their skills,decision-making and on-field play, while concurrently educating these players about the recruiting and college selection processes. College Connection was born.

ELITE SHOWCASES (NFHCA Endorsed) College Connection 2014 is a unique, highly competitive, invitational showcase designed for prospects graduating in 2014, 2015 and 2016. Our program integrates skills, tactics and tournament competition, layered with game and skills video opportunities.
