I just wanted to thank the staff at Sacred Heart University for a great week of Softball. My batting has greatly improved and I feel so much better prepared for the fall tournaments I have coming up.
I had the best time at camp this summer. The coaches were very easy to approach about spending some extra time working on hitting drills with me. Thanks so much Revolution Softball!
The facilities at Sacred Heart University were great. The field conditions were top-notch and it really inspired my daughter to want to play softball in college. Thanks for being extra motivation for her.
The SHU camp was wonderful my daughter had a great time and learned so much! I was wondering if there are other softball camps/clinics during the year (fall/winter/spring)?
