Field Hockey Camps - Field Hockey Review Jenny W. - Parent

This was the first year our daughter has attended a sports camp. What a wonderful introduction to the game of field hockey. Your staff seemed so friendly and knowledgeable and really helped our daughter develop some skills and interest in the sport.

Stellar job! From now on, if other coaches ask for camp recommendations, Revolution gets my vote hands down, every time!

Field Hockey Camps - Field Hockey Review Gina T. - Camper

So much fun. It was hard, but good hard. The coaches asked a lot from us and were really helpful. Playing against the coaches and tournament play was a great test of my skills. There is nowhere I would rather be than on a hockey field!
