Development Academy Finals Week - Saturday, July 13

By Missy Wade

 

The Under-18 team traveled to Houston on Saturday for the Revolution’s first-ever U.S. Soccer Development Academy Finals Week.
 
With players and staff meeting at the airport at 3 a.m., it was an early start to the day. One direct flight and a bus ride later, the group arrived at the University of Houston, where the players are staying – along with the rest of the teams – during the tournament.
 
After lunch in the dining hall, everyone had a few hours to settle in and catch up on sleep.
 
The group met again for dinner, before leaving for Houston Amateur Sports Park, where the U18s had a light training session.
 
After returning the dorms, the players went their separate ways – some opting for a post-training snack in the dining hall and others hitting the ice baths.
 
Finals Week play begins tomorrow and the Revs are set to take on Shattuck-Saint Mary’s at 9:30 p.m. ET. Live in-game updates can be found on Twitter at @NERevolution.
