One of the coaches gave me a private lesson every day during extra time and helped me with my fielding. I can't wait to come back next summer!
My husband and I sent our daughter to the Revolution Softball Camp this summer and we were very impressed with the instruction my daughter received. The coaches let us stay and watch practice a few of the days and the coaches at WCSU put on a great camp. I will recommend this camp to all of the other parents on the team.
I learned a lot while at camp this summer. The biggest thing I will remember was the sliding drill at camp where they brought out the tarp to create a slip and slide. This was a great way to improve my sliding technique and a nice way to cool off in the summer heat.
