Nearly 50 campers learned hockey skills ranging from fundamentals to advanced passes, shots, ball control and valuable lessons needed to become a better hockey player and athlete.

Carrie Lingo's Elite Connection Hockey Camp made its summer stop at Champions Stadium June 23-26 with nearly 50 rising field hockey stars learning from former and present USA Olympic hockey players.

"We are so excited to have the age range from six to collegiate," said former Olympian Lingo. "The younger players will watch the collegiate players, and you can't believe how they will replicate the play."

Elite Connection LLC was started by Kate Barber Kinnear and Carrie Lingo to teach, develop, and improve all hockey players and athletes.

"I really liked the camp," said camper Mia Carulli. "It's great to learn from the Olympians who have actually played all around the world. I've learned a lot."
