Head Coach, Under-18s
John Frederick is in his seventh season on the Revolution Academy’s youth teams coaching staff, and in his fifth year as the head coach of the Under-18 team.
Frederick’s U18 teams have advanced to the playoffs of the prestigious U.S. Soccer Development Academy three times in four seasons (2012, 2013, 2014) under his direction, and the U18s made their first-ever appearance at the 2013 Finals Week after winning their playoff group.
Before heading up the U18 program, Frederick was the assistant coach for the Under-16s, and helped lead the Revs to the top of the Northeast Division and into the U.S. Soccer Development Academy playoffs in 2009-10 – the team’s first-ever playoff appearance. One year later, he was promoted to head coach of the Under-18s.
Formerly an assistant coach for the College of the Holy Cross men’s soccer team, Frederick holds his USSF "B" coaching license. He has also earned his NSCAA Premier Diploma.
Frederick's previous coaching experience also includes time as an assistant coach with the Massachusetts ODP Under-17 team, and head coach for Algonquin Regional High School. His Algonquin squads won the state championship in 2004 and 2005, and advanced to the championship game in 2006. His 2008 squad also went undefeated in the regular season. Frederick earned 2005 Massachusetts Division I Coach of the Year honors. He also has prior coaching stints at Marlborough High School, and club coaching ties to the Tri-Valley Eagles and FC Puma.
A 1993 graduate of the University of Vermont, Frederick and his wife, Amy, have three children: Leila, Tate and Finn. They live in Hopkinton, Mass.
