Field Hockey Camps - Field Hockey Review Martha B. - Parent

We traveled from another state to attend this camp so our daughter could get exposure to a different group of players and coaches. We have had good experiences Revolution camps in the past and this camp was no exception. Very well run camp.

Field Hockey Camps - Field Hockey Review Maxine Z. - Mom

We really appreciated the individual attention the coaches gave to our daughter. They really took the time to go over what she needs to work on to improve her game. She asked to bring her stick on our family vacation; just to be sure she is ready for pre-season a couple of weeks away.

Field Hockey Camps - Field Hockey Review Phoebe C. - Camper

I had such a good time at camp. The coaches were great, and so was the food. We had so much fun staying in the dorms like we were in college.
