How to Make the Most of Your Summer Field Hockey Camp Experience
No matter where you’re participating in a Revolution Field Hockey camp this summer, the coaches and staff members in attendance are all going to be focusing on how to make you a better player. A week seems like a long time, but it goes by pretty quickly, so it’s important to take advantage of all the time you have with us.
Since we know that every field hockey player is a little bit different from one another, there is a personal approach when it comes to providing instruction. While we do our best to make sure you get everything needed to get better during camp, it’s also up to you in order to make the most of what will be an unforgettable experience.
Here are four ways to help make that happen.
Pick the right format for your needs
Just as we said no two players are exactly the same, one summer field hockey camp is very likely going to vary from the next you look at – even if looks similar! While there are actually eight different kinds of camps you can choose from, they boil down into four specific formats: overnight, extended day, day and half-day camps.
In order to read more about what makes those camps different from one another – along with the other options within those formats – check out this blog post.
Make sure you pack up all your equipment
We want campers to have fun and feel safe in a comfortable environment. After all, having that allows you to experience growth much easier! One of the best ways you can achieve the necessary comfort levels to truly improve on the field is to do it with all your own equipment.
It’s tough playing with someone else’s gear because you’re not used to it. So, make sure you double-check your bags before hopping in the car and heading into camp. While you’ll get more specific instructions in your confirmation packet after registering, here’s a general idea of what you’d have to pack up.
Take advantage of having some of the best coaches in the game helping you
Whether your goal is to make the team next year or eventually earn an NCAA scholarship, we can assure you that investing in a Revolution Camp will leave a positive lifelong impact.
There’s personal access to nationally renowned coaches who will push you further than ever before, all while having a great time!
We are proud to have a very impressive network of coaches that want to join us for camp each summer. Here’s a list of those who were at one of our Revolution Camps last year.
Learn as much as you can both on the field and off the field
Improving on the field in the physical aspect of the game is important, but improving off the field, as both an athlete and person are other benefits you receive from attending a summer field hockey camp.
Our coaches are also fantastic role models, and all camp directors are Double-Goal Certified by the Positive Coaching Alliance, which is a national nonprofit organization to develop better athletes and better people.
