Field Hockey Camps - Field Hockey Review Lauren L - Parent

Coach Cheryl Canada provided my daughter and her teammates with the most memorable experience we could ask for. The combination of field hockey training and summer camp fun was PERFECT!

Field Hockey Camps - Field Hockey Review Alexis T- Parent

My daughter was anxious before camp because she had never played field hockey before. The REVOFH staff made her feel comfortable right from the start. It was tough getting her to leave the field after the last day. Already looking forward to another week this summer!

Field Hockey Camps - Field Hockey Review Kelly R- Camper

My teammates and I have been going to Revolution Field Hockey camps for 4 summers and we can't imagine our summer without it. We love to see how much our hard work in the summer pays off in our fall season.
