Academy Information



Please CLICK HERE for detailed tryout information for MID-YEAR TRYOUTS for the 2021 SPRING SEASON. As a reminder current Academy players (2020 Fall) do not need to attend tryouts unless they would like to switch to a different team in the spring.


Fall 2020-21 Academy Update:  

  • All players who participated in Academy during 2019 Fall/2020 Spring will return this fall without a tryout
  • We will keep all players within the same pool as they were for the past year
  • The age groups for Academy will change to U11, U13 and U15
  • Changing the age groups will allow all players to return and remain with their player pool from the previous year
  • U10 from 2020 Spring will become U11
  • U12 from 2020 Spring will become U13
  • U14 from 2020 Spring will become U15
  • Players may or may not be on the same team they were assigned to in 2020 Spring

We believe this is the best way forward to get players back into the Academy without additional risk to health and safety during this pandemic. Unfortunately, this will limit the players in Academy to those who played in the Academy program Fall 2019 and/or selected for the program in Spring 2020 seasons and add no new players for Fall 2020.  We plan to hold mid-year tryouts for new players again in November 2020.

ACADEMY INFO


CLICK HERE for detailed tryout information 


 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 2020- Spring 2021  is located at the bottom of this page. 


For the 2020 Fall Season Academy will consist of the following age groups:
 
U11 Development Team Program both Coed and Girls only available
U13 Development Team Program both Coed and Girls only available
U15 Development Team Program both Coed and Girls only available
 
The U11, U13 & U15 Development Team Programs for 2020 Fall will be selected from returning players from 2020 Spring. 
  
 
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, (with the exception of 2020 Fall) 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 a coaching license. Games are typically played on Saturdays with some game play taking place during the week in the evenings. 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 and it can be at any Stafford County Parks and Rec field.
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.
