THE COLLEGE OF WOOSTER – Wooster, OH
July 12-16, 2015
Ohio’s only 5 day / 4 night camp!
Now in our 11th Year, the Revolution Lacrosse Camp for Girls at the College of Wooster has grown into one of the most popular girls lacrosse camps in the Midwest. The College of Wooster camp is a 5 day /4 night camp, the only one in Ohio and is long enough to ensure the necessary repetitions and skill development time on the fields.
There are many lacrosse camps throughout the country, many are designed as recruiting opportunities, some are team camps for game play. The Revolution Lacrosse camps are designed for individual development. Hallmarks of our programs are well-organized days of instruction specific to each position and skill level, that progress through the duration of the camp.
LIZ FORD – Head Women’s Lacrosse Coach - The College of Wooster
Through seven seasons, Elizabeth Ford has won over 70 percent of her games (79-33-1; .704) and three North Coast Athletic Conference championships, while maintaining Wooster’s reputation as one of the best NCAA Div. III West Region women’s lacrosse programs in the 2000s.
Highlighting Ford’s tenure, the Fighting Scots added NCAC titles in 2007, 2009, and 2010, marking their fourth, fifth, and sixth over a 10-year period, and with them, received berths into the NCAA Tournament. Her teams have reached double-digit win totals every season, including 12-5 in 2007, 12-4 in 2009, 12-4 in 2010, and 12-5-1 in 2012, and for her efforts, Ford was the 2009 IWLCA West Region Coach of the Year and the 2007 NCAC co-Coach of the Year.
Outside of Wooster, Ford gained international coaching experience during the summer of 2011, as she headed the Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) under-19 team at the Women’s Lacrosse World Championship in Hannover, Germany.
Ford only had to make a cross-town move when she was named the College’s head coach in July 2005, as she was formerly the head girl’s lacrosse coach at Wooster High School. She helped the Generals to winning records four of five seasons, including an 11-3-2 mark in 2002, and they reached the Round of 16 at the Ohio State Lacrosse Association Tournament in 2004.
Ford also brought significant experience at the collegiate level to the position. In fact, she was an assistant coach at Wooster during the 1998-99 academic year, and prior to that, a graduate assistant in field hockey and lacrosse for two seasons at Washington (Md.) College.

I am just writing to thank you for a fantastic week of lacrosse for my daughter. In very challenging heat your staff took excellent care of the girls. When I arrived to pick up my daughter, I expected a tired and nearly dehydrated teen, but saw neither. The girls were energetic and wanting to share the details of their week. My daughter assured me the trainers made sure they hydrated during the day and evening. Thank you for an outstanding job in very challenging heat!

My daughter, Emma Kennedy, attended the Wooster lacrosse camp last week. I just wanted to let you know how highly she spoke of you and what a positive influence/role model you were for her. I wanted to let you know that she had a really great time and learned a ton. It is great teachers and coaches like yourself that really do make a difference.
