This summer we had several interns from different high schools join us to help Ambush get better with every idea, project and coaching assignment they had participated in! These interns joined us from June to August participating in projects around The Attic as well as helping coach camps at both our indoor and outdoor locations. They helped assist us with facility management getting The Attic organized, cleaned up and even painted the locker room with our Ambush logo. They managed the Ambush store by taking inventory of clothes, setting up the store front at the indoor location and getting clothes orders together for pickup. On our website you can see the player profile page that our interns worked on this summer to highlight the accomplishments of our athletes both on and off the field. They helped coach our youth camps and were great role models for our future field hockey stars this summer.
The 2022 Ambush Summer Interns:
A quote from Lauren Chotard:
“This summer, I had fun learning how to work the Ambush website and figured out how to set up an event along with all the work that goes into it. I loved painting and had a great time putting up the Ambush logo on the wall in the entrance with the other interns even though it took awhile to put up the tape. At the summer camp, I got to engage with a lot of first-time field hockey players and had fun playing competitive games and coming up with cheers together. My favorite part was getting to know the other interns better over the weeks I was there and brainstorming ideas with them. I loved interning at Ambush and looked forward to it every day.”
We want to thank all of our summer interns for all the hard work you did and helping with all of the projects you completed this summer.
About Charlotte Ambush Field Hockey:
Ambush field hockey is a well known, respected, and high level club, growing the game of field hockey in Charlotte, NC. Since 2008, our main goals as a club is to grow the game in the south region, provide a positive environment for young athletes to develop athletically, socially and mentally, and promote high level coaching & playing. Ambush has developed from a small club into an elite level program coached by some of the most experienced coaches in the country. Ambush is proud to be the home of athletes ranging from 1st grade-12th!
At Ambush we believe in developing our young players into becoming mature athletes, whether you are familiar with the game or not, we’ve got a spot for you! Charlotte Ambush Field Hockey club is a not-for-profit organization directed by former player and current coach Miki Osherow. Osherow, a North Carolina native, was a member of the Appalachian State Field Hockey Team and has been a field hockey coach in North Carolina for 22 years. She has received honors such as Coach of the Year and USFHA Developmental Coach of the Year. Osherow started Ambush in 2008, already coaching in the area; she recognized that Charlotte had very few teams and she wanted to help grow the game. As the game evolved in the area, Osherow had a lot of players wanting to develop their game outside of the school season and she knew starting Ambush would only benefit these young players.
The Ambush Staff includes many other experienced coaches and administrators who help provide our athletes with utmost knowledge and skill needed to perform at the elite level. As many of you have heard, Charlotte has become the new home of the USA Field Hockey Women’s National Team, providing Ambush the opportunity to watch and be coached by the best players in the country. The Women’s National Team is committed to helping Ambush with clinics, individual sessions, coaching, admin, and more!
This being said, Ambush is so much more than a field hockey club. Ambush provides small groups, private lessons, college recruitment help, leadership training through our summer intern program, and lessons to become coaches and umpires. We hope you can join us as we have fun, compete, and learn the game of field hockey!
