Monday was day one of the Development Academy Playoffs and with a game scheduled for 8 p.m. local time, the day was a fairly low key one.

Everyone ate breakfast in the hotel by 9 a.m. and returned to their rooms, meeting again for lunch at noon. The U18s then went for a short walk and discussed their game later.
 
The group boarded the bus at 3:30 for a pregame meal back at the Italian bistro and headed to the fields at 6:50.
 
In their first game of the tournament, the U18s played MLS rivals the New York Red Bulls to a 1-1 draw. Check out revolutionsoccer.net for a complete game recap.
 
After the game, the players and staff enjoyed a postgame meal in the hotel lobby before calling it a night.
 
Both the Under-18s and the Under-16s are in action on Tuesday. The U16s will kick off against Albertson SC at 5 p.m. ET, while the U18s will take on Chivas USA at 9 p.m ET.

After a long travel day, the Revs’ youth teams have made it to Frisco, Texas, and are preparing for day one of the U.S. Soccer Development Academy Playoffs.

The players and staff arrived at the airport for 5 a.m., only to learn shortly after that the flight had been delayed until 2 p.m. As a result, the next nine hours were spent napping, watching movies and wandering the Terminal B shops. 
 
Unfazed by the delay, the group got to the hotel around 6:15 p.m. and resumed the schedule as planned. The U16s were rounded up for a run, while the U18s were given the opportunity to unpack and rest a little before their game tomorrow.
 
The group then boarded the bus at 7:30 for dinner at a familiar restaurant in Frisco. Having now eaten at the same Italian bistro during each of the youth program’s last two trips to the area (2010-11 Development Academy Playoffs/Showcase, 2011 Generation adidas Cup), the returning players were thrilled to be back.
 
Following dinner, the teams met briefly to discuss the U18s’ first game tomorrow (9 p.m. ET vs. New York Red Bulls), as well as the U16s’ continued preparations for their first match on Tuesday.
 
All week long, in-game updates will be available on www.twitter.com/nerevslive and complete game recaps can be found on revolutionsoccer.net following each match.

Bobby Shuttleworth and Blake Brettschneider stopped by the 30th Annual Jimmy Fund Scooper Bowl on City Hall Plaza on Thursday, June 7. The guys sampled some ice cream, mingled with fans and signed autographs. The RevGirls were also on hand and didn't let a little rain (or Bobby losing his spoon) get in the way of a fun afternoon in Boston. Thanks to everyone who came out!

On Tuesday, June 5, the New England Revolution conducted the first-ever Revs Training Center (RTC) for its newest affiliate club, Empire Revolution in Western New York.

The RTC was for the top boys across Western New York, born in 1996, 1997 and 1998.  With 50 talented young men in attendance, the Revs, Empire and U.S Soccer Development Academy staff coaches put the boys through the paces for an intense 90 minute session which simulated the Revolution’s regular training sessions and those run by the U.S. Soccer youth staff. 

The coaches were pleased with the standard of play from prospective Empire players, with a high work rate and infectious attitude prevalent among the players who wished to impress for a spot into the Revolution’s development system. 

“We’re very excited about how our first event with Empire went,” Revolution Academy Director Deven Apajee said. “The boys were outstanding and we enjoyed working with the Empire staff for this event. Everyone was thrilled to hear more about the details of our partnership, and the opportunities that are now available to the Empire players because of the Revs relationship.”

Apajee also provided players and parents with  presentation about the newly-launched Revs–Empire partnership and the unique and exclusive soccer opportunities – including international competition, extensive training,  MLS Reserve League call-ups and more - available to the players through the U.S. Soccer Development Academy program and the Revolution system.

Tuesday’s RTC was the first of many player development events the New England Revolution will be conducting in Western New York through their partnership with Empire.
