Summer 2023 camps have concluded.
Lisa Cellucci enters her 23rd season as a member of the University of Iowa field hockey team’s coaching staff in 2022-23 and her ninth as head coach. Cellucci, a three-time All-American and member of the U.S. National Team, is the all-time saves leader at Iowa. In her 22 years at Iowa, the Hawkeyes have compiled a 268-163 record and have been consistently ranked in the top 15 of the NFHCA national rankings.
In the past three seasons, the Hawkeyes have been a top 10 team in the national poll and the team ascended to the No. 1 spot in the rankings for seven straight weeks during the 2021 season.
Cellucci has earned back-to-back-to-back Big Ten Coach of the Year honors (2019-21), becoming the first coach in Big Ten history to accomplish the feat. She and her staff have earned NFHCA Regional Coaching Staff of the Year honors twice.
ASSOCIATE HEAD COACH
Michael Boal is in his second season as the associate head coach for the University of Iowa field hockey program and his eighth overall with the program.
Following a quick turnaround from the 2021 spring season, Boal helped guide the Hawkeyes to the outright Big Ten regular season title in the fall of 2021 – the first for the program since 1999. It was Iowa’s second regular season title in three seasons.
The Hawkeyes started the season with 16 consecutive victories, the second-longest winning streak in school history. The program won five consecutive games against top-seven ranked foes from Sept. 19-Oct. 3 and went 10-3 against ranked opponents during the year.
Iowa won with a stingy defense and an opportunistic offense. Iowa’s defensive unit had an NCAA-best 11 shutouts, which included a school record eight consecutive clean sheets during the month of September. The Hawkeyes rose to No. 1 in the NFHCA rankings for the first time in program history – a spot they held for six straight weeks heading into postseason play.
University of Iowa graduate and former Hawkeye All-American Jess Barnett was named an assistant in July 2021.
Barnett, a three-time All-Big Ten honoree, regional All-American, Big Ten All-Tournament selection, and two-time NFHCA All-American, returned to Iowa City after playing at Grant Field from 2009-12. The North Vancouver, Canada, native started every game of her career and helped lead Iowa to two-straight NCAA Sweet 16 appearances in 2011 and 2012.
Barnett was honored as Iowa athletics female athlete of the year in 2011 and 2012. She was also a two-time team captain and named team MVP her sophomore, junior, and senior seasons. In 77 career games, Barnett scored 27 goals and registered seven assists, while leading the Hawkeye defense.
Following her collegiate career, Barnett was a member of the Canadian National Team where she won bronze in the 2013 Pan American Cup in Argentina and garnered over 40 international caps with Team Canada.

Frequently Asked Questions
HOW DO I GET DOCUMENTATION TO CLAIM CAMP FEES ON MY TAXES?
If you are eligible to deduct camp fees for TAX purposes, use TAX ID#426004813.
WHAT IF I CAN'T GET A MEDICAL RELEASE OR SCHOOL PHYSICAL?
A medical release MUST be signed by a doctor OR a copy of your school sports physical performed within one year of the camp date to attend any of our camps. If you come to camp without a medical release, you can contact a doctor and have them fax a copy or go to a local UI QUICK CARE and have a sports physical performed. There are NO EXCEPTIONS. If you choose to have a doctor fax us a copy, your child will be unable to participate in any sessions until this medical release is received by the Athletic Trainer.
WHEN IS MY MEDICAL RELEASE DUE?
When you apply online, you will be required to provide your insurance information; the medical release may be mailed later. However, it is best to send your completed medical release before you check in the first day of camp, and you can do this via fax, scan and email. THIS IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT, AS YOUR CHILD WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO PARTICIPATE UNTIL THE MEDICAL RELEASE OR A COPY OF THEIR SCHOOL PHYSICAL IS RECEIVED.
