The Revolution Academy (also referred to as the Academy) is an advanced recreational program that seeks to bridge the gap between Stafford Soccer’s Recreational division and Revolution Travel providing players an environment in which they can develop and hone their skills. The Revolution Academy strives to teach a greater understanding of the game of soccer, improve technical development, and to instill self-confidence in players who demonstrate the potential for development in to the Travel program. This is accomplished through advanced skills training by certified and licensed volunteer coaches, dedicated professional training sessions throughout the season, competitive in house game play, and a possible end of year tournament with other clubs.
The Revolution Academy age chart for Fall 2016- Spring 2017 is located at the bottom of this page.
The Revolution Academy will consist of the following age programs:
U-10 Development Team Program Coed only for Fall/Spring 2016-17 **U10 Girls can tryout and be considered for U10Coed or U12Girls
U-12 Development Team Program both Coed and Girls only available
U-14 Development Team Program both Coed and Girls only available
The U-10, U-12, & U-14 Development Team Programs will select players through a try-out process.
U-10, U-12, and U-14 Development Team Program players will attend multiple enhanced Professional Training Sessions (pro-training) lead by experienced licensed coaches that will focus on technical skills demonstration integrated with small sided game play while offering coaching development as well.
While still a recreational program, the Revolution Academy is focused on providing a venue for players to develop their skills and become accomplished players able to move on to Revolution Travel. The Revolution Academy requires a larger commitment than recreational soccer on the part of the interested families, but the rewards are numerous in player development.

The Revolution Academy Division requires acceptance based on a tryout, is more competitive and is considered to be a developmental division to possibly prepare players for the Travel division, if selected, and wish to join. Coaches are required to hold at least an “E” license. Games are typically played on Saturdays with some game play taking place during the week. There are no more than 3 sanctioned events per week. Teams are formed based on player skill and ability to have more equally balance teams. Teams ARE NOT formed by geographic location. Specific practice fields and times are released by the county, scheduled by the field’s coordinator and selected by the coach. You will not know where/when practice is held until just before the season begins.
If your child is seeking to develop to the next level and grow in a life long love of soccer, Revolution Academy may be for you.
