In North Carolina, field hockey is a fairly uncommon sport. That fact makes this opportunity even greater for the girls participating in the Wilson PD PAL Field Hockey Camp! Shout out to the East Carolina University Club Field Hockey Team for leading the camp today and tomorrow!

Check us out on our PAL Facebook page:
